Blogging Fever Rises

Blogging has become a past time for many business professionals, students, computer hobbyists, news junkies and the list goes on. I obviously enjoy it because I'm maintaining two blogs myself. 

Another activity that I would have to rate as one of my top five is to walk through bookstores (old or new, modern or flea market, any and all bookstores) and spend hours at a time looking through the book shelves of every genre. And, of course spending way too much time in the magazine and periodicals section. 

This past week I came across a magazine called Artful Blogging - a magazine dedicated to "Visually Inspiring Online Journals". 

The cover was artfully set and colorfully eye catching.  The entire magazine had pictures and descriptions of blog sites maintained by those who are artful and creative. 

For example, www.kellyinkstudio.blogspot.com is written by a nature photographer. A jewelry designer maintains a site at www.speckled-egg.blogspot.com. 

The magazine reviews blogs that are just fun to explore and to learn how creative minds work and play. Check out the magazine or google artful blogs then visit the blogs listed. Leave comments on what you think of their journals and support fellow bloggers as well as keeping art alive.

Women on The Most Wanted List at Many Companies

A great new book called Womenomics (Harper Collins, 2009) by co-authors Claire Shipman and Katty Kay details new research that proves that women are “the hot commodity” in the workplace.

Women executives have proven to be better leaders, create higher profits, maintain a higher level of organization, and most important, they can use both sides of their brains.

A few new terms introduced include "pink profits", "asset-to-estrogen", "a new all" and the title itself, "womenomics."

Women are in big demand and the authors propose that it is a good time for women to ask themselves what they want at work and then ask their bosses for it. Flex time, or less time at the office, guilt free time off, or working from home some of the time are benefits that companies are starting to realize make good motivators and are received by women as benefits.

It is a great book with some really great statistics about women in the workplace.

A list of recent book reviews

This has been a very busy summer for writing assignments. Unfortunately I’ve made very few blog entries over the past several months. I vow to get better and start posting more regularly. For now, here are a few links that will take you to a few recent book reviews on Blogcritics.
