Advertise on My Ballard

“I live in Ballard. Almost everybody I know who lives in Ballard goes to It’s because it’s local and it means something to you.”
  – John Cook, co-founder of GeekWire, speaking on KUOW.

My Ballard is not only Ballard’s most popular news source, but the most-visited and most-shared community news site in North Seattle. As Ballard has grown as a regional destination, so has our readership, spanning neighborhoods like Fremont, Phinney Ridge, Greenwood and Magnolia.

That’s why My Ballard averages between 60,000 and 80,000 unique users every month (updated March 2019). Our social accounts on Facebook (page and group), Twitter and Instagram are among the most-followed for any community brand in Seattle.

Founded in December 2007 by two seasoned Seattle journalists, My Ballard won a national Online Journalism Award by the Online News Association for community collaboration. It also took home a community service award from the Ballard District Council.
