Used as a platform to connect local women, Housewives in the City is a lifestyle blog and social media community with the goal to bring women together to network, make friends, and build their sense of community.
Social media and event coordinator for Cincinnati Housewives, Erin McIntosh, says she jumped at the chance to start the Cincinnati chapter of Housewives in the City.
“I had always joked that I wanted a job where I just got to meet and talk to new people,” McIntosh laughs, adding that — coming from an office setting — she was eager to start something new. “It has been so much fun hosting the networking socials and meeting so many great ladies,” she adds.
Cincinnati Housewives events aren’t just for housewives though, McIntosh says. “Don’t let the name fool you,” she adds. “Our ladies night out socials are open to everyone,” she adds.
Every month, Cincinnati Housewives hosts a ladies night networking social at various local bars and restaurants. “We have local businesses and vendors set up so you can shop if you’d like,” she explains.
According to McIntosh, event attendees range in career paths, including but not limited to bloggers, business owners, stay at home moms and direct sales consultants. All events are free and open to the public.
Although Cincinnati Housewives events are open to the public, events are announced via Eventbrite and attendees are asked to register for a free ticket. McIntosh says this allows them to know how many people to expect and prepare for each attendee in advance.
Cincinnati Housewives prides itself in their emphasis on community, McIntosh says. “Our focus is to help ladies make connections with local people and businesses that they may have otherwise been unaware of,” she adds.
In the future, Cincinnati Housewives is looking forward to booking new locations and vendors for upcoming ladies nights.
