Since our first publication in 1992, the Bright Side Community Newspapers has had a commitment to our community of only publishing positive news and stories about our schools, churches, youth sports, civic groups, and upcoming special events in Cobb County, GA.
In 1992 there was no internet, no facebook, no twitter, no blogs – only print media, direct mail, tv and radio. As these new means of communication have evolved we have embraced them, and incorporated these new technologies into our communication stream. However, we still print and mail the Acworth/Kennesaw/Marietta paper once a month — and publish it online.
Twenty-six years later The Bright Side Community Newspapers is still a true community newspaper filled with positive news and community events for our readers that live in Acworth, Kennesaw, Marietta and West Cobb. We reach over 28,000 homes by direct mail. In addition the Bright Side Community paper is published ONLINE at www.brightsidenews.com.
The Bright Side Newspaper devotes approximately 50% of its pages to editorial space with over 90% of its stories submitted by readers and advertisers, making us a true community newspaper. Advertising in a community newspaper is the most cost effective way for your business to reach your target market and let your customers know you are very much part of your community.
It is a testament to our quality that many of our advertisers from 1992, are still with us today and recommending us to other businesses. We are still committed to serving the community with positive news and events
