Eyes on Roanoke

During a RE BarCamp in Lynchburg in 2009, I met Kathy Bibb, @kbibb, a Realtor from Roanoke.  Several months later I reconnected with Kathy during one of our local Meetup 2.0 Meetings and discovered that she intended to launch a blog.I met with Kathy soon thereafter to discuss her blog or as she described it in an email, her project!  I wasn’t sure what to expect since I have spoken with several bloggers that want to launch a blog, but haven’t researched why they want to do it, what their target market is or if they are ready to continuously update the site.   Fortunately, Kathy had done her homework!  She came to our meeting with a manila folder 2 inches thick of post titles and ideas as well as a vision of what she wanted the blog to look like; this was impressive.The result of her hard work is Eyes on Roanoke.  This is the stated purpose of her site:Whether you are a Roanoker or just thinking about moving to our beautiful Valley,  I hope you will find Eyes On Roanoke a valuable resource.  You will find links to area municipalities and schools, current happenings and those about to occur, some humor, some useful info and some thoughts and information about real estate in the Roanoke Valley.  I want to create a place for you, dear reader, to come when you want some good information and a little entertainment.  I welcome your comments and suggestions and if you have an idea or an article you would like to see posted,  please let me know.You can also become a Fan of EyesonRoanoke on Facebook.I encourage you to check out Eyes on Roanoke and help spread the word about this site.  It is a valuable resource for people that live in the Roanoke Valley, families or individuals that may want to move here or for people that want to know more about our region.Full disclosure:  I worked with Kathy to help her set up her blog/website.
