The Welcome to Sulmona Girls

We believe we have found a suitably creative one-stop-shop to engage folks interested in Abruzzo and to celebrate our captivating storytelling blogging ties.

The Abruzzo Blogger Community’ platform launched 21 June 2014, and, features qualified posts, and personal or business blogs that cover:

Food and Wine          Travel            Arts and Culture

Wildlife & Nature            Lifestyle            Ancestry

Readers can find Domenica Cooks next to Majella Home Cooking , Hang on to the Vine next to With Abruzzo in my Heart  – where your newest post is promoted on the site with a click thru to your blog, your social media where appropriate is shared with our collective audience, where your profile can be easily viewed for potential blogging and writing assignments.

No Blog but a Story or Tips to Share

ABC will also offer itself as a publishing platform to those who have a personal story or tips about Abruzzo to share but don’t want the upkeep a blog, as well as a facility for those who wish to publish a post that doesn’t quite sit right on their own niche blog.

Blog Awards

Let's Blog Abruzzo Winner

Who doesn’t need a little motivation or acknowledgement sometimes?  We plan to celebrate our bloggers on Red Gold Day.  This is our annual blog competition across multiple categories honoring both an ABC member posts and a non-affiliated blogger post on, of course, Abruzzo.

Sponsors will have a special place in our blogging community by providing us with general financial assistance to sustain our new endeavour.

To encourage relationships with local bloggers, sponsors will be invited to provide prizes for our awards and to challenge and inspire us to create winning posts.

Sponsorship will  help pay for the free promotional spots which will be offered to local charities, for example our first blog award  was working with Abruzzo’s Marsican bear charity, Salviamo l’Orso.

Sponsors will be able to place a linked logo on a relevant ABC page which not only will increase their profile but will draw visitors to their websites.    It is hoped that once sponsorship kicks in we will be able to reduce or eliminate our already modest membership fees.   Note  our Aspiring Blogger membership starts at just €3.33 per month.
