Happy Monday! For Macon County, it is Spring Break! I hope everyone enjoys a little extra time with their kiddos! I am sneaking off with my oldest to Tennessee tonight for just some fun with him while Nana keeps the two littles. As the oldest, I am always having to tell him "wait just a minute, your brother needs me" or "I'll be right there, your sister needs something," so I want to give him some special time to be the star of the show. So beginning around noon today, he gets 24 hours of "yes" time with just us!
I love writing the Southern Scoop for Macon, Jackson, and Swain Counties. I want to continue to do that and continue to watch it grow as YOUR regional news source. For me to be able to continue doing this full-time, it has to be funded somehow, which is possible through advertising. The advertising on the website is very limited #1 to not overwhelm readers and take away from the news content #2 to give advertisers the biggest bang for their buck. So if you have a business, consider taking advantage of our advertising options beginning in April and if you don't have a business, make sure you visit our advertisers to let them know you saw them on The Scoop!
