Introducing CharlottesvilleFamily’s Bloom Magazine

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (January 2016) – It’s the beginning of a new year and the turning of a new leaf, or the blooming of a new flower for CharlottesvilleFamily! Starting January 1, CharlottesvilleFamily will add Bloom to its magazine title and will be called CharlottesvilleFamily’s Bloom magazine. This change was inspired by two motives: to reflect an intimate boutique feel and to become more interactive with our readers. Just like the Ultimate Go-To-Guide, Camp Expo, Bumble’s Go-To Summer Adventure Giveaways and Family Favorite Awards, Bloom will be a part of the ever-growing and loving CharlottesvilleFamily community brand. And our name isn’t the only thing that’s changing! There will be new, exciting material contained in CharlottesvilleFamily Bloom’s revamped covers, including a new column, “Mindful Parenting,” and a new section in the calendar for parents called “Date Night.” Along with new additions to the print issue, there will be more ways than ever to interact with us online! This month, we’re rolling out “ShutterBee,” a monthly photo or video submission contest, easy for busy moms on-the-go to participate with just the click of a smartphone! We will also be giving out daily “Drops of Honey” on our new CharlottesvilleFamily Twitter page, and finding out what the readers think through a new “I heart CharlottesvilleFamily” initiative! And we didn’t stop there! Coming soon, our webpage will be host to a Parent Blog! To see all of our fresh changes and the new ways to connect with us, pick up your copy of Bloom today!
