Our leadership team consists of tech-savvy business leaders and highly accomplished, nationally recognized, multi-skilled publishers with insider know-how of the evolving media industry and the most popular digital trends.

Our local team of experienced digital editors and superstar bloggers/writers are some of the hardest working, most creative and brightest minds in The Triangle area. Period. We are proud to have many well-established and highly respected North Carolina based freelancer contributors, journalists, and versatile all-around digital content creators featured on 919 Blog.

All of us care deeply about the communities we write about daily.

We strive to cover the diversity of all the local neighborhoods where we live, work, study, shop and play by keeping you up-to-date on the latest news, issues, fun activities, and businesses that matter most.

919Blog.com is the ultimate online destination to find out about all the exciting things happening in your backyard!

We work extremely hard around the clock, 365 days of the year, to do our very best in keeping you up to date with all of the most interesting happenings and other important community affairs around your hometown. We publish and report on the latest news and updates on popular events, food & drink, culture, art, music and much more.

Our coverage right now is primarily focused on the local lifestyle in North Carolina and our thriving local business community & economies in the Raleigh – Durham metro region. Occasionally we may also broadly cover other topics of interest if there is a need or demand.

Why We Do It

Our company is focused and committed to establishing an independent next-gen media company here in the wonderfully thriving and fast-growing Triangle Area region of Raleigh – Durham – Cary – Chapel Hill – Wake Forest in Central North Carolina.

We know that there is a huge lack of in-depth local coverage in many parts of The Triangle area, and based on our extensive community research, there seems to be a significant pent-up demand for localized content such as up-to-date news and in-depth guides on the hyper-local levels all throughout the region.

Through our one-of-a-kind digitally streamlined platform we publish and distribute the latest community news, local guides and other types of in-demand digital multimedia focused primarily on lifestyle and business directly via 919Blog.com and our 40+ other sites via The Triangle Blog Network. We presently cover all parts of Wake County, Durham County, Orange County and some parts of 5 additional neighboring counties.

The #1 purpose of our sites is to showcase the high quality of life in the Raleigh – Durham area. We put the spotlight on the many amazing local NC based businesses, awesome events and of course celebrate the diversity of all the local people here that make The Triangle area such a great and unique place to live, work, shop, play, and enjoy life to the fullest.

With the help of many passionate and engaged local community members, our well-established publishing partners and talented freelancer contributors, we publish the very best and most informative hyper-local news updates/briefs, in-depth stories on the latest exciting happenings around town, helpful guides for things to see or do, and more.
