We are only four months in at The Heat and I am overwhelmed by all the love we are receiving. Thank you to everyone who has Tweeted, shared on Facebook, Emailed, Stumbled, etc our posts. Although things are going well, we still have a LONG way to go. While I appreciate all the love we are getting nationally and even internationally, my main focus is here at home in the 757. This blog is for you and we need your support. Make sure you are checking back daily for updates, continue to tweet, “like”, and share the posts with your friends and others. Above all, make sure you are telling everyone, “Hey check out The Heat 757, it’s a new site for Hampton Roads and it’s hot!” You don’t have to say that verbatim, it’s just a suggestion. 😉 I also encourage you to reach out if there is something or someone you would like covered on the site. While our focus is entertainment and celebrity news, I also want to support up and coming local talent in the area. As I always say, VA is the breeding ground for greatness and I want to help expose untapped and undiscovered talent. Not just in music, but fashion, photography, modeling, acting, videography, etc.
The Heat started as an entertainment blog but we are now transitioning to become a lifestyle site as well. In keeping with the new direction, we will have some new features that will be adding to the site momentarily. I am looking to bring on local columnists who will offer advice in health, fitness, beauty, and more. We are learning, growing and developing, so bare with us as we navigate our way through this. Overall, my main goal is to bring you a quality product that you will be proud of and look forward to reading as well as sharing. Just a few new features:
- Columns and Advice on Health, Fitness, Life, Love, Dating, and More
- Exclusive Celebrity Interviews
- The Heat Radio Show on Blog Talk Radio
- Contests and Giveaways for concert tickets, CDs and More
If you haven’t already, make sure you are following us on Twitter, register at our Forum, and “Like” Our Facebook Fan Page. A lot of our contests will be through our FB page or random giveaways to registered users or Twitter followers. If you aren’t participating, don’t complain if you are missing out! Last but not least, if you are interested in becoming apart of The Heat movement, whether as a writer, or another capacity, email us.
Editor, The Heat 757
Well there is an update to the update! We have now launched 757 Lifestyle, the community and lifestyle site of The Heat. After much debate, I decided it was best to keep them separate instead of integrating the lifestyle side into The Heat’s site. We are currently growing and now have a few writers and contributors for both sites. Stay tuned for more updates! 😉
