I consider myself an honorary Texan since I am there nearly as much as I am home in Florida. So when my BOBNOLA and Brandcation friends invited me to join their Texas Blogging Forums I was excited to jump in! Now I am excited to be heading to the first ever Texcursion in March! Check out the details and if you are a blogger – JOIN US … we might just make you an honorary Texan too! 🙂
IMMEDIATE MEDIA RELEASE
A TEXCURSION WITH 20 INFLUENTIAL TEXAS BLOGGERS IN GALVESTON
Galveston, TX, January 24, 2011 – Blogging Texas Events has partnered with the
Galveston Convention Visitors Bureau to launch Blogging Texas Events – Galveston on Thursday, March 31 through Sunday, April 3. This event will bring more than 20 influential bloggers to the Galveston area to tour the city. It will report the city’s progress since Hurricane Ike, using the social media tools of blogging, Facebook, Twitter and many other online platforms.
The first event of its kind, Blogging Texas Events was founded by Texas bloggers
Brandy Arivett – Not So Average Mama, Jessica Benton – That Tech Chick, Lisa
Johnston – 50in8 and Kimberly Sloane – Southern Girl Reviews, to partner with
community leaders and businesses to share the wonderful sights and treasures in Texas using their influence.
According to a report released by Pew Internet, 57 million Internet users read blogs.
Blogs allow everyday people to interact and bond with bloggers who live normal lives
thus establishing trustworthy relationships. Bloggers often give their honest opinions
about brands and products such as books, dining, family, and travel that lead to increased
exposure and revenue for companies. Not taking their influence lightly, the founders
decided to use their status as a tool to showcase the state of Texas in front of their
40,000/monthly visitors, encourage travel to Texas, influence purchasing power of Texas
brands and to boost Texas’ economy.
