Time to visit the Real Housewives of Birmingham

Real Housewives of Birmingham cover - May 2010The current issue of Real Housewives of Birmingham has been unveiled. You’ve got to click the link we just shared to check it out, since it’s an online only publication.

Its creators describe the site onĀ its Twitter profile as a “Birmingham, AL webazine for the housewives and workwives of the metro area.”

Last night they sent out a tweet suggesting thatĀ they wanted to collect 500 hits before Mother’s Day this weekend. It sounds like a realistic goal – and a great excuse to head on over to the site and check it out.

The Weekly’s going to be fine

There are only a few of us that even knew that Creative Loafing, Inc. was a minority owner of one of our local alternatives, Birmingham Weekly, before Tuesday’s report in the Birmingham Business Journal. While “The Loaf” prepares to go through (and hopefully successfully emerge from) Chapter 11 bankruptcy, The Weekly let us know that it’s going to be business as usual and that it should not be affected. If they follow the lead of CL though, we’ll begin to see a migration to an online product in the near future.
