Back Home To The Mountains 

And to a New Home at Blue Ridge Country Magazine

CynthiaOne of the axioms of the magazine business is that success is built on a three-legged stool. Our cherished, devoted and discerning readers—both subscribers and newsstand buyers—make up one of those legs. And those readers’ welcome for each issue’s content is such that we have to keep our editorial leg from head-swelling sometimes, and not tip over the stool.

The third leg—the 33-year ongoing partnerships with our advertisers—is the one we get to celebrate today. 

We are so very pleased to welcome Cynthia Blankenship Bruggeman back to our part of the Southern mountains—back to her hometown of Lexington, Virginia. 

It’s her gentle, approachable manner that serves to deflect things like her B.A. from Appalachian State and her M.A. from U.T.-Knoxville. And her official-sounding title with Blue Ridge Country magazine: Associate Publisher.

And that unassuming smile hides other significant accomplishments as well. Her magazine background—largely with outdoor titles in Colorado—reaches back over most of this century, and includes the building of win-win partnerships with companies and organizations large and small.

Our Blue Ridge Country family here in Roanoke is immensely warmed and complimented to have Cynthia back home, and with us! We hope that you—our extended Blue Ridge Country family—will join us in that welcome.
