Reflections: 2011

Reflecting over the past year and the course  ShoutOUT® has taken has left me nothing short of speechless! It has truly been an amazing year!

During 2011, we established 3 new ShoutOUT® chapters (JAX, Orlando, and Miami) and have managed to grow both our Twitter and ShoutOUT Tampa Bay communities exponentially.

2011 was also a heart-warming year for us in recognition. In April, we won the 2011 StartupNation Leading Moms in Business competition and in August, we were overwhelmingly thrilled to have been the grand prize winner of the first annual LocalShops1 BizBlast Marketing Competition and had the amazing opportunity to work with several astounding and incredibly talented contributing businesses as a result (KnowHowe, Chris Kuhn– Freelance Writer, Limelight Marketing, We wrapped up the year in November with winning the 2011 Tampa WAVE Awards for Favorite LGBT Blog!

In December, our new website ( was launched thanks to Limelight Marketing, Owner, Liane Caruso and Developer, Josh Story. What an amazing job they did! The site looks fantastic…both simple and easy to navigate! And Josh was a dream to work with!

Though the year is winding down, our blog is not. We’re speedily gaining momentum thanks to the burgeoning collaboration with community and business owners. To date, we’ve published three fantastically informational articles by our knowledgeable guest bloggers. Deepest thanks to Julie Larson, Lori Ann Fiore, and Anita Rothwell Lindsay for your educational and in-depth articles! We’re looking forward to many more informative articles in the near future, which will include topics such as “Overcoming Fear”, “Plastic Surgery: How to research before going under the knife?”, “Tips for easy family night dinners”, etc. from these and many other guest bloggers.

All of this success would not be possible without the community we are a part of, both our physical and virtual communities! Heartfelt thanks for all the support you have given ShoutOUT® in 2011! We’re looking forward to astounding full year in 2012 and wish the same for you!

All the best,
