It's not often Jane gets to toot our own horn. Truth be told, women are dismal at speaking up about their accomplishments. That's a prime reason we're passed over for promotions, time and time again. We think the hard work we do is obvious - but, reality has shown a need to announce the good results from our hard work.
Here at Lip-sticking, we work hard to bring you research, tidbits, insider trading - no, not that kind of insider trading, we mean the kind that begins with word of mouth marketing - and all manner of advice on marketing to women online. We are so fortunate to have a devout readership that shares news articles with us, a core group of dedicated readers who not only direct us to content worthy of our attention, but who share their company news with us, so that we might pass it along to others.
When something exciting happens to us - as this next news will show - we blush as we report it, but report it we do. We hope this example will inspire ALL women to stand up and be counted.
First, the ThirdAge blog, where Yvonne (Jane's alter ego - see right) writes a weekly post, has just started its own Carnvial. This Carnival is destined to be a popular one - for the ThirdAge crew, readers, visitors, and all of our pets. We're just kidding about the pets. We write about them sometimes - but so far, none of them has left a comment on the blog, or the Carnival. We half-expect that to happen in the next few years, though. After all, Jane knows exactly what her pets are saying in their little mews and woofs - [mostly they're saying, "feed me"] but we think they will someday burst into song.
Do go visit the Carnival schedule for updates and more really great reading.
After you're done checking out the outstanding posts at the ThirdAge Carnival (thanks to our editor, Jory Des Jardins of Pause), Jane, on behalf of Yvonne, asks you to click into Fortune Magazine's Business Innovation Forum 2005 blog - where - Yvonne was interviewed today! On Marketing to Women Online! We admit that we're tickled pink! Even though we caution you to only use the color pink reservedly. Try a little red - really. Women will LOVE you for giving them so much power!
AND - breaking news! Our dear, dear Toby Bloomberg has a mention of the interview over at Diva Marketing. High praise, indeed. Thank you, Toby!
Gosh, what can we say except: what's not to like about that?
