Coastside Buzz Mission and Goals

Infinite Content ~ Coastside Buzz is a website on the internet. You can tell a story by article/photo-essay, podcast and video. The story can be as long as it has to be.
“To Give You a Voice, in Your Own Words ​” ~ Support local content that is not editorialized, and aims for original sources as often as possible. Submit your own content.  Produce free (if you know how) or low-cost content (if you need help), whether via articles (photo-essays), podcasts and/or videos.
Stories are no longer constrained by physical space like newspapers and radio. On Coastside Buzz every story gets its own infinite web page. That means infinite space for a story which can be an article, a podcast, a video, or all three. Tell your story, the way you want to tell it. Come play and help us produce great local content.

Free Self-Submit Coastside Buzz Calendar​ ~ Access 24/7/365 from any device. Find all the live music, community events, government meetings, senior activities and foodie specials happening on the Coastside. Missing something? It's FREE and self-submit...Go!

Your web page includes business name, address/map, phone, email, website link, photos, descriptive text for hours, and more. Access your webpage 24/7/365 from any device. Buzz Bees will promote the Directory once a week, highlighting a business, via the Buzz Email and Coastside Buzz Facebook Ad Boost.
