(We have papers in MN, SD and WI that might be interested too). But the blog would need to be copied and pasted into the Areavoices platform. Super easy to do. You can maintain both blogs or simply convert to our platform. Whatever you’d like. But it would be fun to have you in our papers. Email me if you’re interested. tracy.briggs@fccinteractive.com and I can give you more details.

I’ve read a couple of articles that I’ve wanted to leave feedback on but cannot find them in this directory.
