Well, this is likely to be a very short post.  You know why?  I wanted to compare the blogs of two high-end department stores — Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue. Guess what?  Not a blog in site. Why?  Both these stores are constantly reaching out to their customers — offering personal sales, exclusive pre-sales, trunk shows, […]

I’ll start by admiting that I’m a diehard Redskins fan.  But I don’t play fantasy football or Madden 09, and so I came up with another way to have them battle it out (okay, virtually battle it out.)  I’ve chosen the Redskins and the Cowboys for my first blog-off.  Which team has got the better blog.  (And yes, I’ve got my fingers crossed it’s the Redskins!)

I recently discovered a terrific blog feature called “Bloggers Face-Off“.  Every week Daniel Scocco  has 2 famous bloggers answer some quick questions, which are presented side by side.  Bloggers vote for their favorite.

Whatever.  Web 2.0 and blogging put the world at the speed I […]

Yesterday I posted some feedback I received from a good friend questioning my recent immersion into blogging and social media.  Today I heard from another friend who was stunned to hear what I’ve been up to.  Here’s just the start of what he said: What the h*ll are you doing? You are a well adjusted socially-ept mother […]

So I just told some friends that I started a blog and worked on it most every night between midnight and 2 a.m.  I asked for their thoughts.  I heard lots of positive feedback, some suggestions, and the following comment written by a friend who is a top copywriter, creative director, screenwriter — a very talented guy.  But here’s […]
