About Newtown Square Friends & Neighbors Magazine

Bob Blaisse – Publisher

Greetings Friends & Neighbors of Newtown Square! Thank you for your interest in Newtown Square Friends & Neighbors Magazine, published by Best Version Media and mailed monthly to 4,446 Newtown Square residents by the support of advertising sponsors of Newtown Square’s residents. Many of you know me. I’ve lived in Newtown Square for nearly 25 years. Over that time, I’ve met so many wonderful Newtown Square residents through social events and in service to Newtown Township, Little League, Scouting and my church community. I began my business career as an advertising and marketing consultant. For a while, I worked as a Talk Radio and Cable TV Host. In the early days of the Internet, I managed the first online archive of millions of published newspapers and magazines articles we brought onto the Internet for the first time. Prior to becoming the Founding Publisher of Newtown Square Friends & Neighbors, I founded and served as the Managing Director for an online graphic design and signage company. As a branding and advertising professional for most of my career, a business owner, community leader and a family man, my mission now in Newtown Square is “Bringing People Together” through our social-media-in-print community magazine and online. I hope you enjoy reading our monthly magazine and will consider supporting our mission of Bringing People Together.

Newtown Square Friends & Neighbors magazine is about local storytelling to a large audience in Newtown Square. And about offering our community business leaders the opportunity to be recognized as sponsors of Newtown Square’s social-media-in-print and online platform to communicate their stories and support of Newtown Square residents as well.

I am happy to connect with any of you about a story or content idea, or if you’d like to learn more about sponsorship opportunities please reach out to me at bblaisse@bestversionmedia.com.
