As a career journalist, I confess to having a special affection for print. I appreciate the value of digital communications and social media, but there is nothing like holding a newspaper or magazine in my hands.
The printed copy of The Cherokee Vine is special to me. The Vine was launched 18 months ago with the specific vision of sharing our community’s inspirational, encouraging, helpful news, connecting churches, ministries and people.
Most recently, I have been given the opportunity of launching an exciting publication in Cherokee County: Sixes Living magazine. While my first inclination was to continue publishing The Cherokee Vine, I soon realized trying to oversee two monthly publications is not realistic. One or both would suffer. So, I had to make the decision that this would be the final print edition of The Cherokee Vine, at least for now.
But there is good news. There is always good news.
We will be sharing much of the local news and information currently published in The Vine as part of Sixes Living, where we will reach more readers. We have been printing 3,500 copies of The Cherokee Vine each month; Sixes Living magazine will print 16,000 copies. Plus, much of this news may be in the TowneLaker as well.
We will keep posting the good news on The Cherokee Vine Facebook page, and at www.thedailyvine.com. Keep my email handy – firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com – and let’s keep sharing the good news!
