[ April 6, 2011 ] - & Company, creator of the official website of Galveston Island Marketing and Tourism, is pleased to announce the launch of, a new community blog site that invites organizations across the Island to take an active role in discussing life on the Island and local events, issues, and politics. Included topics range from tourism, to nightlife, to cuisine, to weather, to current events via “The Cooler.” We want our new site to be informative, absolutely. And we plan to feature some of the most vibrant, opinionated voices on the Island to make it come to life.

In a nutshell, we believe that the Island desperately needs a public forum that can tackle the big issues – with a variety of voices and opinions at the table. We want it to be informative. And equally provocative. And’s vast number of unique daily visitors will be the perfect venue to host the discussion.

“All of us at & Company absolutely realize the importance of blogging and social networking in regard to promoting Galveston Island as a tourism destination to the world, AND as a place to consider calling ‘home.’  Our new blog and its integration with social networking giants like Facebook and Twitter underscores this vision,” said Jim Cordell, Vice-President of & Company. “By launching this vibrant new blogging community, we are not only dramatically increasing our web presence, but – hopefully – visitors to Galveston Island as well. Quite simply, growing audience engagement via is a logical next step.”

Each blogger will enjoy a host of tools at his/her fingertips, making our blog one of the most colorful, technologically-savvy in the area. Want to upload a video, photo, or graphic to help illustrate your discussion? No problem! No “web development’ skills whatsoever are required.
