It is difficult to see what we would be like without the influence of societies. We have had somewhat different roles because of biological differences. The sex of a person is becoming less important than their mental abilities. I think it would be boring if we were all of the same sex. And there were were no differences. We are all human beings we are more alike than different.

Women and men have different 'wirings' as one of my friends would say. I think women might give attention to certain details that men don't, in general. And women have different sensibilities as well.

Because - although new reports say good news spreads faster than bad news - trust me, Jane has a long memory for disappointment. She is not going to fume about mistreatment the way she did in that old Dick and Jane world of the 20th century. She's going to share her bad experiences with all her blog buddies - all over the world.

This reminds me of an anecdote/joke I read one time. A man had a wife who would get 'historical' when she gets mad. Indeed.

Hi Brian, and Barbara, and AskPatty...

Brian: I so love your sense of humor! No, I (Jane) did not feel my time was wasted. On the contrary, I was delighted to discover your blog. If you noticed, I did recommend your blog to my readers... we would all do well to be regular readers of CopyBlogger.

Barbara: can't wait to check out your post on Macy's. Thanks for sharing.

AskPatty: can't wait to check out your site, too! I have a feeling I'm going to like it, alot!


I have worked in many male dominated fields for the past 30 years. Now, I have chosen to involve myself in the automotive field. I love challenge! One of my favorite quotes from Margaret Fuller “If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it." I would like to share with you a business that I have recently begun called AskPatty.com – Car Advise for Women.

The “Ask Patty” blog is a safe place for women to get advice on car purchases, maintenance and other automotive related topics. Women can ask Patty for automotive advice on the Ask Patty blog, Patty will typically reply generally within the same day. Selected questions and answers will be answered by the panel of automotive women experts for the benefit of all women. I am excited to be part of this education and sharing of information and hope other women find it as valuable.

Yes, women are in fact blogging about things they like and don't like. And I often use Starbucks as a key example of marketing to women, well. We are the word of mouth gurus. And on that note, I hope you'll like my latest post about a recent (good and bad) marketing experience I endured with Macy's http://aboutwomen.nfshost.com/blog/

Thanks for the insight into Jane! :)

I do have a history of making a point and violating the most important related rule of the point in order to accentuate the rule. I've done it before warning against sensationlist headlines and meaningless guarantees (both linked to from the post that you, er... Jane complains about).

I've found that people "get" the point and the rule better when I approach things this way, and since I'm not selling anything (the site doesn't even carry advertising), I can't really see how giving Jane a tip in a novel fashion is deceptive at all.

Did Jane feel her time was wasted by this information? Tell her to hit me up for a full refund of every cent she paid. :)
