Welcome to the inaugural edition of BeachSide! My wife, Carole, and I are so excited to launch this project. It is our deepest hearts desire that the Anastasia Island community finds this as a beloved resource for information, events and stories about living here in this wonderful beach community. We had our own beach wedding this past January!
We have so much to tell, but we'll be simple for now. The core of BeachSide will be contributed by you, readers and writers, that have something to contribute and want a place to do that. It may be an upcoming event, a special attraction to you or what life is like living on the island. Submitting an idea, event or story is super easy at www.sabeachside.com. Take a look.
We are also calling out to island businesses to submit stories in a unique way. You see, we won't be selling ads. Any business located on the island can post a story that "helps" our readers with an area they specialize in and we'll give them visibility at the end of the story as appreciation.
There is more to come. We are just getting started. This will take time, but we are excited about growing an organic e-magazine here for the beach! You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to share any ideas!
