Friday, May 23rd, 2008

According to a recent survey by Expedia, as covered in ModernAgent, research saw a shift in attitudes toward taking time off among women and men. In 2007, men were more likely to feel guilty about taking time off from work (39 percent versus 30 percent of women). However, in 2008, women are more likely than […]

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

I caught a query posted in one of the emails I regularly receive from Peter Shankman about a week or so ago and I couldn’t wait to track down the completed story – I knew it would be the perfect follow up to my last post on the topic of user generated content. The June […]

a sunny graduation

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

I haven’t really looked into this too much, but I have already become a member and I think it is the coolest thing. I just read a post on Glam by Karen Palmer about this fairly new bi-monthly magazine […]

Yesterday on Budget Travel Beth Collins posted about a booming trend, picked up from the Philadelphia Inquirer – girlfriend getaways. Women of all ages are taking the types of getaways that are as varied as the women: knitting trips, spa trips, surf trips, city trips, etc. Budget Travel actually has a new web site that […]
