Meet our 2012 New Media Artists-in-Residence

9 Mar

Today we are launching our 2012 social media campaign featuring an outstanding group of hand-selected new media artists (aka bloggers and podcasters) who will be sharing their experiences with you as they Visit Lānaʻi, or as we say online, #VisitLanai.

The artists will be on island for 6 nights / 7 days and will be staying at the Hotel Lanai and both Four Seasons’ properties while visiting with the entire Lānaʻi community: – Lanai Culture & Heritage Center (@AquaHotels) (@FSLanai) (@FSLanai)

We invite you to join the conversation with all of the New Media Artists who are visiting now through November, 2012:

    I am so honored to be chosen to participate in this program. Though I’ve visited Hawaii previously, I’ve never been to the island of Lanai and have always wanted to visit it. Finally, I’ll have that chance, courtesy of your wonderful program.

      Mahalo for stopping by Pete! We’ve updated this blog so you can search for last year’s team (Choose the 2011 Category) and find links to all of their articles on the beautiful and almost private island of Lānaʻi. 🙂

    What a fantastic opportunity for the chosen bloggers! Look forward to reading along and hopefully joining in the near future 🙂

    Mahalo! We are very excited and hope the bloggers gaina as much benefit as we will by having them as our invited guests. If you use Twitter, you can follow the hashtag #VisitLanai. And please subscribe to this site as we will be pointing everyone to the various podcasts, blogs, photos, and videos that the artists will be creating.

    Very cool. Thanks for sharing. You should invite some Maui bloggers to join the ranks as well!

    • Roxanne Darling April 9, 2012 at 3:43 pm #

      I agree, local bloggers have much to contribute to the tourism and travel conversations. I’ve often wondered about visitors having “buddies” or pen pals with locals. as so many visitors report wanting to meet the locals!

      FYI the new media artists who were selected are full time travel writers and they have done a lot over the years to build some very active audiences! I am hoping for now we can connect on line.

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours and
    I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel
    free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Spending some time and actual
    effort to generate a great article… but what can I
    say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never seem to get anything done.

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if
    it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!

  20. Pattaya Busses July 3, 2013 at 3:10 pm #

    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
    seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
