WhyCLE Challenge Wrap-Up

WhyCLE Reason #29: The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo! To celebrate the new elephants exhibit, a duck tape elephant sculpture welcomes guests at the entrance.

At the beginning of May, I set off on CLEGal’s WhyCLE? Challenge to identify one positive thing I love about Cleveland every day.

Everyone who participated could share their reasons any way they wanted so I decided to tweet my daily reason and then write a recap each week on Clue Into CLE.

How did the WhyCLE Challenge go for me? Well, you can read the recaps of reasons 1-20 here:

And here are reasons 21-31 of why I love Cleveland taken from the last week’s Twitter stream:

#WhyCLE Reason 21: @NUFarmersMarket! Loved stopping by Shaker Square yesterday – the Judy’s Oasis hoomus I picked up was delicious.

#WhyCLE Reason 22: Enjoying @e4thst on a sunny day. Heading over to @thegreenhouse for their Rooftop Patio Party. http://ow.ly/57t3T

#WhyCLE Reason 23: Celebrating my 5 yr anniversary at @PRNewswire. Thankful everyday this led to me moving here and being #happyinCLE!

#WhyCLE Reason 24: Getting outdoors and playing kickball tonight w/ @HungryInCLE @MildlyRelevant & @ScottHicken!

#WhyCLE Reason 25: Opportunities to get more involved w/ #clefood scene. Looking forward to mtg w/rest of @NEOFoodTours team later. http://ow.ly/57t7j

#WhyCLE Reason 26: Being able to learn about a city in unique ways such as @engagecsu’s Cleveland Historical 2.0 app http://ow.ly/53VGU

#WhyCLE Reason 27: Daytrips to #CLE’s outer suburbs like Chagrin Falls. Enjoyed seeing the falls w/Scott and his dad. http://t.co/5wIqtpZ

#WhyCLE reason 28: @HappyDogCLE on a Sunday afternoon … or any day of the week! http://ow.ly/57uGN

#WhyCLE Reason 29: Spending day at @clemetzoo – yesterday’s highlights: lemurs, wallabies & of course the elephants! http://ow.ly/i/cg4n

#WhyCLE Reason 30: @Ingenuityfest bridging #CLE’s science & art communities w/events like Temple of Tesla http://ow.ly/56pmO

#WhyCLE Reason 31: Close proximity to Lake Erie’s shores and islands. Kelleys Island was so much fun today! http://ow.ly/56tzv

So now that it’s June 1st, what did I learn from CLEGal’s May challenge? I think it helped me realize that even on a rainy, gloomy day (and there were plenty of those in May if my basement was any indication!), there’s always something to love about Cleveland. Whether it’s a variety of places and events to enjoy or the chance to get involved in the community, boredom is never a problem and it’s easy to find fun or help out.

Although the WhyCLE? Challenge has come to an end, you can discover more reasons to clue into Cleveland on my blog, as well as on WhyCLE and many of the other blogs in the Ohio Blogging Association.

And after reading my reasons for why I love Cleveland, feel free to share your own in the comments section below!
