Cincinnati’s own Mashable Meetup on Social Media Day 2010

Michelle contemplating Social Media Day Festivities

It’s finally here: the first annual Social Media Day world-wide celebration. Activities planned for this day by local Social Media Networking group, Cincinnati Social Media,  have quickly sold-out, but you can stay in the loop by following the #cincysm hashtag while enjoying your own celebration.

Pete Cashmore, of Mashable has recorded a video greeting that you can view below. Pete hopes that today will be the start of communities coming together on a monthly basis to host Mahable meet-ups and further social dialogue in the community.

On-line relationships are great and can be wonderful begiinnings, but the real deal occurs when we can meet in the flesh and begin a more personal dialogue with one another. I have seen this happen over and over in my own relationships and business endeavors which are made all the more rich through our mulit-layered connections and conversations.

I would love to hear your story of an on-line business relationship or friendship that led to a meeting where you achieved an outcome that might not have occurred without the initial social media connection.  I will share the most intriguing stories on the Blog.  Send your story to michelle@creatingconnectionsconsulting.com

Remember being social is all about the conversation!

Update:

Here are some shots of today’s event at Lavomatic in OTR (Over the Rhine).  Felt like a reunion of the local social media community movers and shakers.
