Connecting our Sonoma County communities and promoting local businesses and organizations to residents and tourists is what this paper is all about. We feature articles on important issues that need attention, local non-profits and government agencies to help them get recognition and support, and we support local businesses with Resource Guides throughout the year. Our annual special supplements: Small Shops of Sonoma County that comes out in December; the Sonoma County Gardener's Resource Guide (also on the web at http://sonomacountynurseries.com/) comes out in March; and our Vacation at Home summer series runs June, July & August. The Gazette introduces readers to independently-owned businesses, educates with articles, and inspires readers to get to know our community better.
The Sonoma County Gazette is 100% advertiser supported and FREE to readers. Our advertisers are why this paper exists. I encourage readers to support the businesses that support this paper. And I make sure their ads are placed with good stories, that they get good positions, and that the ads don't clash with each other. Providing advertisers with good graphic design and layout in the publication is part of how the Gazette supports our Sonoma County business owners. Our paper is attractive so people pick it up, the layout is clean and easy to read so people spend time on our pages, and ads are designed so reader's eyes are drawn to them. Supporting the success of our advertisers is key to this paper's success.
