Yes, Virginia, There Is a Redneck World Magazine

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 9, 2011 -- Redneck World magazine, founded in 2001 by Frank Fraser, began as little more than a local flyer, but quickly grew into a full-fledged magazine with distribution to over forty US states, and Canada. After Fraser's death in 2008, the magazine ceased publication. Now, three years later, Redneck World magazine has been reborn, as a free online publication, under the capable hands of business and advertising manager Lucy Fraser, graphics designer and webmaster Joni Griffith, and publisher, editor and contributing writer Douglas Crouse.

High-Tech Redneck?

Not only has the staff had to face the realities of the high costs of conventional printing and distribution, but the changing publishing environment overall. Today, we see newspaper, magazine and book sales rapidly declining, while online subscriptions and sales of e-books have increased dramatically. Going digital was not only economically and logistically more feasible, but a decision based on the realities of changing technology and the dissemination of information and entertainment.

But, Redneck World?

Certainly, the term Redneck has had a lot of undeserved negative connotations, historically and culturally. Comedian Jeff Foxworthy changed all that. Yes, Foxworthy proudly proclaims himself to be a Redneck. He also holds an engineering degree, and worked for IBM. And he's built a lucrative career out of proving many of us might be Rednecks as well. Rednecks aren't stupid. They just have an aversion to pretension - a "glorious absence of sophistication," as Foxworthy defines it.

I’m not a Redneck.
I’m a Hillbilly.

There is a subtle but significant distinction.

[and we don’t have an official magazine because none of us can cipher]

I’m a Hillbilly.

A mere topographical distinction.

Actually, we are no longer Rednecks, We are “Appalachian Americans”. Has a nice and familiar ring to it.
