To be an Arkansas-based blogger community dedicated to growing women by gathering them into a common space with common objectives and by connecting and empowering them for the greater good.
In summary: Gather. Grow. Connect.
- Gather: provide a gathering place, a sense of community and sisterhood and connections that yield results.
- Grow: offer education, tools, resources and connections delivered in a balanced manner to allow every woman to grow her blog and her voice.
- Connect: supply opportunities, professional connections, platforms and networking to help our bloggers build their personal brands.
We work with and promote Arkansas-based companies and organizations whenever possible.
We post and promote events, news and giveaways on our site only when hosted by or offered in partnership with Arkansas Women Bloggers.
We guard our members selfishly and treat their contact information as our own (because it is!), distributing it only with their permission and for their benefit.
We blog enthusiastically but resist filling our members’ inboxes by communicating no more than two to three times per month with them via email (and only then if we are super excited about something).
We have been crazy wild with the development of Arkansas Women Bloggers for your benefit. Our goals are pretty simple. Here’s what we’re up to:
Obsessively stalk (er, reach out in a calm and collected manner) to every woman blogger we can locate in the state and welcome them with open arms to our blogger directory!
Schedule one to two annual all-state gatherings and several regional meet-ups so we can mingle with member bloggers to grow the natural state… of blogging.
Offer flexible education (both on and offline) to develop and grow our member bloggers.
Serve as THE go-to resource for member bloggers by offering peer and leadership team blog reviews, consulting and guest blogging opportunities.
- Oh, and let’s not forget #AWBU, our annual blog conference in the natural state!
