About Us

Not too long ago, when nearly all of our news came from newspapers, a special, early edition known in the trades as a bulldog would sometimes be published when an important event occurred. Here at dailybulldog.com we want to give readers the same chance to get the absolute freshest news about what’s happening all over Franklin County, Maine. If the news happens today, we want readers to read about it today.

Besides taking an informative look at all this local news, we provide extensive coverage of the rich body of work being produced by our county’s talented writers, poets and craftspeople, to cover all of the outdoor recreational possibilities around as well as to run the most current ads for available jobs, vacant apartments, and other things our readers need.

The Bulldog features stories and columns by some of the best writers Franklin County has to offer, and includes a variety of features we believe aren’t available in any other publication.

Specifically, at the Daily Bulldog we do three things:

1. We want to get you the news first. If it happens today, we want you to read about it today.

2. We want our news to go far. Your kids may be out of state at college or serving in the military far from Franklin County or perhaps your parents or neighbors are wintering down south, but all of them will have up-to-the-minute local news available to them at just the click of their mouse.

3. We want to make the Daily Bulldog a bulletin board for people throughout Franklin County and beyond. We want to publish readers’ letters as soon as we receive them, and to make the Bulldog the first place readers go to learn about and debate the issues that concern us most.

Please contact Editor Amber Stone at thedailybulldog@gmail.com or call (207) 779-6276 or mail 155 Main Street, Farmington, Maine 04938 with your events, questions and comments.
