I hope everyone in our community has enjoyed our work here on the Monroe Scoop. I started this site in December 2008 on a lark and the community support has been awesome. Truthfully, I never expected it to become what it is. We are still young and growing. This month we achieved 100,000 page views since we began. Thanks to everyone of our readers. Our Facebook Fans are awesome and the interaction has been great. If you are not already a member, please consider joining.
The Monroe Scoop is limited to only 10 8 advertisers at this time. Once those spots fill up, that’s it. The current rate on these spots is $65 per month and is good for one year.
This is an introductory rate that will only be good for the first 10 8 people. With the amount of traffic and exposure Monroe Scoop receives, the price wont last.
