Check out this week's edition of the Tar Heel Tavern at A Blog Around the Clock, if you haven't already, and see what North Carolina bloggers are writing about these days.
Also, if you're in western NC, be sure and pick up the October edition of Western North Carolina Woman. WNC Woman is one of my favorite local publications, and I submitted a little essay titled "New Place, Old Friends" for this month's issue, which I thought would fit their theme of "Spirit of Place." They thought so, too, and published it.
Here's a list of places where you can find this free magazine.
