A Blog Kinda Week


Walkoffamemainstarwhite2_1Welcome visitors from wonderful Wonder Branding! It's a thrill to be highlighted by Michele Miller during Wonder Women Week. Even more so it's an honor to be included in a community of smart, savvy  women. All I can say is WoW and thanks Michele!. Girlfriend, you sure made my day ... I feel like a Hollywood Star.

While I'm thanking talented women of the blogopshere a huge pink boa throw to Yvonne DiVita for her very kind and generous words on Lip-Sticking. I'm turning this one into a holiday card.   

The blog world is not without its divos. Earlier this week I had the pleasure of meeting up with Josh Hallett, hyku, at a Starbucks of course.  Josh shared some great blog stories with me. He's doing some interesting work in this space.

When my friend the brilliant marketer,Ken Bernhardt, asked if I would conduct a workshop on blogs for the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau's art council members it took all 2.5 seconds to say Yes! In another lifetime (we all have many of those!) I was a theatre major. As you might imagine developing this program was a labor of love.

Blogging seems made for the arts ... cheap, easy, not a lot of resources, creative and all that good marketing stuff. I sure was surprised to find that not a lot of arts groups have taken up blogging. Here are a few: 

- St. Louis Symphony Orchestra
- 42nd Moon - theatre
Sidebar: Thanks to Elisa Camahort Worker Bees Blog
- Katzen Arts Center
- Moxie Theatre
- Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center

Stay tuned for a few Marketing Diva Biz Blog Profiles on the arts blogs...coming soon!

In the sometimes circuitous world of blogs, it takes someone in Atlanta to "tell" someone in St. Louis that the SLSO has a blog. I had no idea...what's worse is that I just gave a blogging workshop yesterday for St. Louis non-profits and mentioned (with a screen shot..I hope that was ok) your blog's profile of the American Cancer Society's use of blogs.
