My, my...where does the time go? I was informed by Feedblitz this week that someone had unsubscribed from my blog because I updated too often. That was surprising. I've been feeling mighty guilty for NOT updating as often as I used to.
As Lena says, however, it's isn't how often you update, it's what you write.
Since I'm time constrained today, I'll keep this short. Or, at least attempt to keep it short.
eMarketer recently sent me a notice that said, "Men, You're Outnumbered Online." Of course, that isn't news but their numbers were impressive. Let me share:

Case in point... just heard from my favorite car gal, Jody Devere over at Ask Patty! that Zig Ziglar, yes, THE "you can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want" guy...is now partnered with Ask Patty! to Help Auto Dealers Build Relationships with Women.
According to the press release: "Women are the fastest growing and most influential segment of the car buying market for both sales and service. AskPatty.com offers a turn-key sales and marketing certification program to help dealerships build relationships with female automotive consumers. Specifically, the program helps dealership employees improve communication and sales skills, and increase loyalty and retention of female customers."
Blog on, ladies. Even car salesmen are hopping on board.
