Galveston.com Launches New Blog Site, blog.galveston.com
[ April 6, 2011 ] -
Galveston.com & Company, creator of the official website of Galveston Island Marketing and Tourism, is pleased to announce the launch of http://blog.galveston.com/, 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 Galveston.com’s vast number of unique daily visitors will be the perfect venue to host the discussion.
“All of us at Galveston.com & 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 Galveston.com & 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 blog.galveston.com 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.
If you or your organization would like to be considered for inclusion in this exciting new concept – or would like additional information – please contact us at your earliest convenience at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please understand, however, we simply can’t include everyone, so please supply a brief description of your proposed blog, your organization (if applicable), and any additional details you feel may be useful to us.
