What’s up everyone,
I hope you are staying warm, punching inversion in the face and making the most out of all the awesome outdoor activities Utah has to offer. Here are a few updates on what we’ve been up to at Hey Salt Lake.
Firstly, we wanted to thank you for all the support – the blog just went live a little over a week ago and it’s been an amazing ride for us so far thanks to your views, likes and follows. We’ll keep posting a lot more stuff on things to do, places to go, ways to save and much more. We are also planning to hold regular giveaways for our readers, so even if you think we suck in every other way, we hope you stick around just for that.
Here are some posts we have planned for you this month:
– A guide to “original” winter activities
– The W is planning to expand on his club scene article & add more places for you to check out on weekends – the man’s like a nightlife guru, he really knows his SCENE & will tell you all about it
– A guide to current local giveaways
– A listing of free museum days in Salt Lake for all of you nerds (say what? I meant classy/intelligent people!) out there
– A couple of restaurant reviews
– A brand new photo gallery
We absolutely love suggestions (lets just say it how it is – they spare us a lot of research time). So if you have any ideas, drop us a note, don’t be shy!
Among other news, we are really excited to be adding a new contributor in the next few days, so stay tuned. She’ll bring some much-needed sophistication to our blog and give you an in-depth look into Salt Lake’s cultural scene.
If you ever want to submit a story idea, photo, video or an article you want us to publish, hit us up through the contact form and we’ll get back to you asap. We are not currently paying our contributors (are you still there?), but you can include a couple of links in your articles to promote your blog or site. Our plan is to gain a little momentum here and move to a self-hosted platform, so we can add a lot more features for you to enjoy and hopefully be able to pay for stories in the future.
Hey Salt Lake is now on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, so if you like us here (or just want to know about those giveaways), consider following us there too. Also a big shout out to 24 Salt Lake for adding us to their Utah Bloggers Pinterest board.
If you are reading us, don’t be a stranger. Hey Salt Lake is still super new and could use some friends. Say hi sometime!
