About Us

carolcropSince 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 Kennesaw/Acworth and Marietta/West Cobb, Cobb County, GA.

In 1992 there was no internet, no facebook, no twitter, no blogs – only print media and direct mail. 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 newspapers and find that we still have the longer shelf life – that of about 30 days.

Even today The Bright Side Community Newspapers is still a true community newspaper filled with positive news and community events for our readers that live, not only in Kennesaw/Acworth, but also in Marietta/West Cobb. Both community newspapers, published each month, reach over 48,000 homes by direct mail.

In addition the Kennesaw/Acworth and the Marietta/Powder Springs papers are  published ONLINE at our business website: www.brightsidenews.com.   We also keep you updated on Cobb’s latest news on our Bright Side Digital Newspaper website.

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 an active  part of our 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
