Women Blogger Meetup in Little Rock

Check out this press release for our first meetup!

Museum Event Connects Women Bloggers From Around the State
The Museum of Discovery is partnering with Arkansas Women Bloggers to present a networking event at the Museum of Discovery on Saturday, December 11, 2010 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. The event is open to any Arkansas woman blogger. The event is free but reservations are required. RSVP by emailing arkansasbloggers@gmail.com.

The December 11 "meetup" is a social gathering of women bloggers. From tech blogger to mommy blogger, food blogger to political blogger to whatever-pops-into-your-head blogger; all are welcome. Attendees have the opportunity to talk about shared interests, learn new technologies and develop new friendships and social connections. Also, attendees receive a "behind the scenes" peek at the Museum of Discovery's future plans for renovation and how they can be contributors to the Museum of Discovery's "MOD VOICES" guest blogger series.

"We are honored to host the inaugural meetup of Arkansas Women Bloggers," says Katie McManners, Museum of Discovery Marketing Director. "The Museum's mission is to ignite a passion for science, technology and math in a dynamic, interactive environment. What is more dynamic and interactive than a group of people using technology to connect ideas and people?"

Launched earlier this year, Arkansas Women Bloggers is an online gathering place for Arkansas women to share ideas and pride; joy and pain; birth and loss; and every other story that is part of living a life. The group transcends the barriers of race, politics, religion, and age to form a supportive community of women, most of whom do not know each other in person. There are currently 229 bloggers from the natural state listed in the group's regional directories. The website is www.arkansaswomenbloggers.blogspot.com.

"Women bloggers are a powerful force to be reckoned with," says The Park Wife, Arkansas Women Bloggers Co-Founder. "Women are the most powerful consumers in the world. Women who can harness the tools of social media are an especially important demographic. Many brands and businesses are utilizing these effective influencers to build personality, loyalty, and sales for their product."

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact us by emailing arkansasbloggers@gmail.com
