MKB First Anniversary: Wrap-Up

Multicultural Kid Blogs Virtual Birthday Party!What a week we have had!

The first days of the new season have been full of inspiration, collaboration, and fun. The best part is that we are just getting started!

We have been celebrating the first anniversary of Multicultural Kid Blogs coming together as a group. If you haven’t seen these events, do check them out.

Our Hispanic Heritage Blog Hop started last week and will run through Oct.15. The wonderful collection of resources is growing everyday! There is still plenty of time to participate and enter the giveaway.

We had our first Twitter party on Monday. It was a wonderful opportunity to share what raising a world citizen means, how we are doing it and also to win cool prizes. If you were not able to make it, take a look at #mkbparty. The stage is set for more great conversation!

Happy Birthday! On Tuesday, we started a week-long party to celebrate our first anniversary. Bloggers from all over the world are sharing birthday-related articles, and there is a giveaway that you won’t want to miss. Enter through Monday, Sept. 30 by linking up your birthday posts or commenting.

Wednesday, we launched our new Wordless Wednesday feature, compiled by Vanessa of De Su Mama. Multicultural Kid Bloggers shared a “first” for them from this past year. Vote for your favorite!

Thursday brought the chance to win more prizes in another great giveaway. You can still enter the Rafflecopter for a chance to win!

The first year of Multicultural Kid Blogs has been exciting, educational, and inspiring. The more we share and learn, the more we realize how essential this conversation is to the well being of our families and our world. We also confirm again and again that we are our own best resource – together we know so much more. Join us as we continue to share our stories!
