When I began blogging, I relied heavily on the kindness of virtual strangers. Folks who along the way answered way more questions of a newbie than one can imagine having the patience for, and folks who often just knew me from an Internet connection. Since we never had met in real life, I was deeply indebted to them for their kindness. So when I have the chance to repay in some kindness, I am thrilled to do so.
Today, I have the chance to help one Gracie Passette.
Please go visit her blog post at The Marketing Whore titled Putting On My Big-Girl Panties, One Leg At A Time. Read it and respond — either with an email, as directed, or in passing on/re-posting the link yourself. At the very least, make a comment or simply click the links to the authors’ blogs.
The issue at hand is one which does touch on this very blog — not just because of Ms Gracie’s kindness (without which Slip of a Girl would likely not exist) — but because this matter is tied to the matter of lingerie. As mentioned before, lingerie in terms of retail, marketing and even product design seems to suffer from a similar ‘lesser than’ status despite its sales revenues. So support the cause!
