Blue Heel Society Unveils New eMagazine

The Blue Heel Society has created its eMagazine in order to talk about what’s going on in the diabetes community and how families and individuals are making a difference on a local level.

PRLog - May 26, 2014 - BOSTON -- The Blue Heel Society is a growing diabetes online community that was built out a desire to raise awareness about the disease, and the ability to share what’s going on with individuals and families dealing with diabetes in their everyday lives.

Blue Heel was started by Tony Cervati and his wife Diane. Her son has Type 1 diabetes, and Tony and Diane wanted to find a way to express what they were going through as well as lending a voice to other families dealing with caregiving for a child with diabetes. Set up initially as a Blog, Blue Heel Society began very much as a grassroots organization, and is excited to bring this new space to the MANY visitors and followers that have stuck by our side.

The Blue Heel Society has been growing steadily in the last couple of years, and yet, Diane and Tony knew they wanted to expand their efforts and be able to grow the community’s message of hope and advocacy for anyone to enjoy. The result is the development of the Blue Heel Society’s emagazine.

In a recent exclusive interview (http://www.diabetescare.net/content_upclose_detail.asp?id...) by John Parkinson, Clinical Content Coordinator at the very well respected Website http://www.DiabetesCare.net, Parkinson spoke with Blue Heel Society Chief Communications Officer & Editor At Large Thomas Moore, about what the new eMagazine is going to feature, and how it will serve its audience.

Here is a portion of the interview:

DiabetesCare.net: Why the decision to develop the Blue Heel Society emagazine?

Moore: Because of the astonishing number of visitors to our blog, we realized we needed to expand, and that we needed to reflect the fact that our audience included both those with a diabetes connection and others who didn't. So we had to build with everyone in mind. How better to build all this into one place, with an emagazine format.

From the beginning, Blue Heel Society was not doing the norm. Instead of just a "build it and they will come" approach, we started with a message and mission we stuck with, and the result of doing so was that people responded and visited us in large numbers. And thus our concept of "have them come, then build upon that" is a very personal interaction between our BLUETIFUL peeps, and the resulting content we curate for the emagazine.

And as Diane Cervati, Blue Heel’s editor-in-chief says, ‘we always envisioned pushing our boundaries beyond a simple diabetes blog.’

DiabetesCare.net: How will readers access the emagazine?

Moore: People can still visit our original blog (BlueHeelSociety.org), using the topic tabs to navigate the emagazine's sections. People can also view the emagazine right within the blog flipping through the pages of it right from one place.

DiabetesCare.net: Can you provide an overview of what readers will find in it?

Moore: Along with original content, special features, guest commentary, readers will find specialized and tailored content from hundreds of topics from multiple sources each day.

DiabetesCare.net: Can you talk about some of the new features and departments that will be covered in the emagazine?

Moore: There are five key departments including: Fashion, Health and Exercise, Diet and Nutrition, Inspired Living, and Sports. Along with the ever-evolving menu and a store, there is a new topic, Inside The Blue Circle, which is still in development, and geared towards making people aware of what is happening within the diabetes world.

DiabetesCare.net: Tell us more about the InsideThe Blue Circle feature?

Moore: We are quite excited to see how fast our InsideThe Blue Circle is growing. We created a blog and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/InsideTheBlueCircle) for everyone to have a place to share and promote local events that will help in spreading diabetes awareness.

We understand how the grassroots power of local efforts is the real way to grow our collective voice in matters of awareness. As our circle grows, we will be able to spread the word that allows everyone's voice to be heard where it is most needed—in peoples’ individual communities.

DiabetesCare.net: What do you hope people get from emagazine?

Moore: We want to keep people informed about what is going on in the diabetes world. We will be updating our content throughout the day so there will be new articles being posted daily. In addition, peoples' suggestions for content is paramout to our continued success! We also hope that people enjoy its simplicity and ease of use, which is presented in a familiar blog format.

Blue Heel Society is a lifestyle ePublication tailored to fit living with chronic disease management. Readers are afforded diverse content, offering a healthy balance of diabetes specific elements as well as articles relevant to every day life.
