We don’t publish advertorials.
You know: the stuff that looks like a news story, but when you begin to read it you recognize it as being purely promotional.
It’s been suggested by other small publishers that we do this as a way to increase revenue and get editorial content for free.
True, we are trying to make a living from The Coastal Star
, but we are also attempting to deliver a publication that is trusted by our readers. That’s important to us.
