      Posted by Brianna Cloney on Oct 13, 2017 9:03:55 AM

      October is a frightful time of the year. Filled with eeriness, darkness and chills, what better month for Friday the 13th to fall on. Western culture has largely come to view Friday the 13th as the unluckiest day of the year, a day when generally bad things happen and superstitions are heightened.

      How to Maximize Wi-Fi Speed

      Posted by Brianna Cloney on Oct 6, 2017 12:30:05 PM

      We have all been there. Scrolling through media feeds, watching the most exciting part of the movie, listening to your favorite podcast, and the Wi-Fi fails. Maybe it is excessive buffering, or slow downloads, or the signal doesn’t reach certain areas of the house. The dreaded word “loading” appears and with it, our patience drains.

      Cheers to Showing your Queen City Pride with #CincyGive

      Posted by Brianna Cloney on Sep 14, 2017 12:57:03 PM


      BREAKING:  In honor of Oktoberfest season, the fifth shirt in the series, released on September twelfth,  is a tribute to the Cincinnati beer scene. You will be helping to improve the health of others as 100% of the proceeds from each sale go to four local charitable organizations, which you'll learn more about shortly. Like many of Cincinnati’s craft beers, this shirt is small batch with only a limited number available, so pick one up before they're gone!

      Cincinnati Bell has called the Queen City home for 143 years now. The organization has over 3,200 employees and covers service areas in the Greater Cincinnati area, extending to Dayton, Indiana and Kentucky as well.

      143 years is a long time, and change is a natural and necessary aspect of development. However, there is one thing that has never changed, and will never change. Cincinnati Bell is dedicated to enriching the city and the quality of life for the people who live here. Cincinnati Bell wanted to do something to show the people of Cincinnati, and everybody else for that matter, how much love we have for the Queen City. Thus, the #CincyGive initiative was born to give back to the place we call home.

      Awesome Autumn - Fall Festivities in Cincinnati

      Posted by Brianna Cloney on Sep 7, 2017 12:00:29 PM


      As we cherish the last string of warm days and as the nights become increasingly more chilly, we can feel autumn fall-ing upon us (yes, pun intended). It is time to prepare for pumpkin flavored everything (check out Trader Joe's selection of pumpkin flavored foods, it's impressive), leaves to fall like confetti, and fall-scented candle aromas to fill your home. 

      One of the best parts of fall, of course, are all the fall themed things to do. Take advantage of the fleeting warm weather before the real cold hits and enjoy the beauty of what always seems to be the shortest, most-loved season. The Queen City has a plethora of fall activities, so pull out your favorite sweater, get your friends and family together, and get ready to fall in love with autumn in Cincy.

      Top 5 Best and Worst Series Finales Ever

      Posted by Brianna Cloney on Aug 24, 2017 1:20:58 PM

      Finales hold a special place in the hearts of TV watchers, especially when an entire series is ending. There is something extra about watching a series finale, knowing a very limited amount of time remains to resolve any issue. Emotional attachments heighten as the end draws near and we try to accept it is almost time to bid adieu to characters who are hardly fictional at this point. Stakes are high too as these spectacles are tasked with portraying the ending to a story, which is arguably the most important part.

      Posted by Brianna Cloney on Aug 16, 2017 1:25:54 PM

      When it comes to choosing the right Internet plan – speed, price, provider – it’s easy to feel like a fish out of water. How do you know the real difference between 50 Mbps and 100 Mbps, other than 50? What does that additional 50 Mbps mean for you? How do you know if you’re getting a good deal?

      There are a lot of questions when it comes to choosing an Internet plan for your home. The best way to approach this situation, like any good problem solver would say, is to start at the beginning.
