The Convention & Visitors Bureau posts a variety of content on a blog that is shared on social media, in newsletters targeting leisure travelers and for other purposes.

Two new features were recently added to the blog - guest writers and a Day in the Life series.

Guest writers are local people who have a special connection or interest in the community and are willing to write about it for the blog. Recent guest posts written by guests include children's book author David Harrison who wrote about Riverbluff Cave and former Springfield mayor Robert Stephens who wrote about poetry readings in Springfield. You'll find others as you read through the blog.

Also new is a Day in the Life stories written by CVB content coordinator Madison Yohn who spends a day with a local personality and shares her experience. The first in the series featured muralist Andrea Ehrhardt.

More special features are coming soon! We hope you enjoy reading the blog and share it with your friends and family.
