Areavoices Digest #40 – From We Fest to Watercolors

This is the weekend some country music fans wait for all year. It’s been called the Super Bowl of country music festivals. We Fest draws thousands of visitors to Detroit Lakes, Minnesota every August for concerts and camping. This year, you can keep tabs on all the news from We Fest as Forum columnist John Lamb blogs live from Soo Pass. Can’t you just see him in his cowboy hat?

It’s just the first of this week’s recommended blogs.

  1. struggling to get a response from AREA VOICES. My blog: “Life as we know it, a Minnesotan’s view.” Is no accessible to me….I got an email that it was somehow marked spam, but the response link giving an option to protest it does not work. I tried to re-sign up using the same url and blog title, but it claims the blog is in place……can anyone give me help on how to re-establish access to my blog or point this to someone at AREAVOICES to respond to me?

    • I’m so sorry for the troubles. Unfortunately, our spam filter has been a little overzealous blocking legitimate blogs lately. I “unspammed” it. See if it works now. If you’re having further problems, send an email to and explain your problem. Again, I’m so sorry for the troubles.
