Asheville Grit is coming soon and wants to be your locally based, go-to place for finding the most interesting Asheville voices online.
We want to show off all the things that make this crazy little mountain town so unique.
And we want you to be a part of it.

Asheville Grit is the work of Gulfstream Communications, the publisher of the glossy WNC Magazine. The company also publishes city magazines in Charleston and Myrtle Beach. About a year ago, it launched Charleston Grit. Click over and you’ll get an idea of what that site looks like.
More as I get it.
Having visited the Charleston erit site, I can only say:
Mayonnaise. Bland. Colorless. No real taste.
Is this the nature of the “Grit” brand of website, or is Charleston just a far more mainstream, un-hip town than Asheville?
Either way, there had better be some change or Asheville Grit will just be the on-line equivalent of the Visitor’s Center, or maybe “Our State” magazine.

Do they plan to pay their contributors?
Almost certainly not.
So they aggregate existing blogs, get paid advertising, and don’t pay the original blog posters? Or do they share the ad revenue? What’s the business model?
