Unplugged 2012 Sponsors
The Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged (#AWBU) Conference is upon us! As we’ve told our attendees (nearly 75!) and the rest of our bloggers who will be there only in spirit, there is no way this event would happen without our generous sponsors. Please take a moment to visit their websites, connect with them via social media and mention them in your blog posts or elsewhere online. They are all excited to be involved and impressed with the buzz that all of you are able to generate!
UNPLUGGED CONFERENCE PRESENTING SPONSOR:
Attendees will receive the Happy Birthday Baby books and are asked to join Healthy Families in encouraging healthy pregnancies, births and babies in their own communities. Give the books with baby shower gifts and spread the word – healthy families make healthy communities, and every blogger should be on board with that idea! AWBU attendees are also encouraged to place the Healthy Families badge on their blogs and to post about the resources for families.
Porch Swing Sponsor:
Participating bloggers will receive two pairs of fabulous Country Outfitter boots – one to keep and one to giveaway on their blog! Country Outfitter will headline our Saturday night gathering complete with the boots giveaway, a casual dinner and a jig dancing lesson! Visit the Country Outfitter website to shop hundreds of beautiful and functional boots from Ariat, Justin, Lucchese and dozens of other brands. Be sure to pin your boots (and the ones on your wish list) to the AWBU Country Outfitter board on Pinterest and shout from the rooftops (via social media) your love for boots!

We are pretty excited to have a gathering on Friday night brought to you by Petit Jean Meats. Honestly, it’s pretty exciting anytime we partner with an Arkansas company! You’ll enjoy Petit Jean offerings throughout the weekend, from their scrumptious but little-known coffee cakes (which you can order for the holidays!) or their wide array of meats including hams, bacon and all sorts of boxed gift packages.
