THANK YOU

CWB GroupLaura, Debba and I just want to thank everyone who was able to come out last night to celebrate Cincinnati Women Bloggers first year as well as all of you who have supported us over the course of the past year.

It’s been such an amazing journey filled with so many new friendships. I can’t even begin to put to words how much I’ve learned and grown from getting to know all of you.  Last year when we launched our blogroll consisted of less than 20 blogs. Today it stands at more than 120! It’s amazing.

We’ve got lots of exciting things planned for our second year and can’t wait share them with you. If you have ideas for topics you’d like to see presented on, please don’t hesitate to shoot them to us at CincinnatiWomenBloggers@gmail.com. Also, if you’ve just stumbled upon us and are a local blogger email us and let us know about your blog! We’d love to add you to the blogroll.

 

PS. If you missed last night’s event, you can check out the photos on Shannan’s Flickr stream and over on Bob’s.

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since we sat on the second floor of the Bean Haus and hoped that other women would show up to be part of an organization for women in social media in Cincinnati. Today, with 120 awesome women on the blog roll, we’re thrilled to celebrate our first birthday. And, in true Cincinnati Women Bloggers fashion, we’re throwing a party!

 

So, join us at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 17th at the Havana Martini Club at 441 Vine Street for our birthday bash! We’re not doing anything fancy, just socializing and having cake (and a few drinks) with our friends and supporters. Men are invited too! So, bring your friends, husbands, boyfriends, coworkers, girlfriends, sisters, parents, random person on the street etc. 

Besides cake, Havana Martini Club will be providing drink specials like half-priced bottles of wine and $3 select draught beers. Nice! 

We’ll see you there! Please RSVP for this event on our Eventbrite page. Of course we welcome people to show up the day of the event, but Havana Martini would appreciate a general head count for their planning purposes.
