NEWS: I have been a guest on not one, but two podcasts this week, so now you can hear me as well as read my advice. The first one, for the SinglesPodcastingNetwork, hosted by American Singles founder Rich Gosse, is being edited and should be ready for downloading to an IPOD or other MP3Player in a week or so (or you can click on the link I’ll be adding to the Advice Sisters Web Site home page and listen through your computer).
The second one is an on-the-fly interview with Lesley Scott, Editor in Chief of Fashiontribes.com (a great site, by the way if you don’t know it). The fashiontribes.com Podcast is un-rehearsed and un-edited and it’s fairly long, but you can also check out the blog version: “Life, Career & Image Expert Alison Blackman Dunham – of the Advice Sisters – Dishes on Timeless Style, Beauty Secrets, Makeup to Avoid Like Your Life Depended on it – & why Groundhog Day Rocks”
*I don’t get a lot of comments here, but please…do me a favor? If you listen to these podcasts please come back here and let me know how you like them? Or, use our contact form: http://www.advicesisters.net/thankyou.html
I have also added two new features to the Advice Sisters Web Site bulletin boards. The first, “Beauty Central,” http://advicesisters.net/phpbb2/index.php is a place for readers, to put their own reviews of products they love and products they don’t. It’s also a place for readers to swap items, give and get beauty and fashion advice, and connect with one another. The second new forum is a “source for stories” bulletin board. If you are seeking someone to share a story on a specific subject for a story you’re doing as a writer or researcher, or you are seeking some publicity, you can post your requests there. Both boards are free services and all I ask is that you do not spam or abuse the boards. Thank you in advance for your consideration!
Finally, finally….after getting the royal shaft by my service provider who shall remain nameless, but doesn’t really deserve that courtesy after nearly destroying the work I’ve done online for more than 14 years and extorting literally hundreds of dollars from me, I’m attempting to start up the Advice Sisters Enews ezine again. This is the bi-monthly zine I also send out at my own time and effort to let my readers and supporters know what is happening on the Advice Sisters Web Site, and also offers short articles, tips, and links that help make life easier, more successful, and more fun. It is free, but by subscription only and you must sign up for it, yourself. Here is the url: http://www.advicesisters.net/thankyou.html
After having my web site and domain name pulled from my ISP for sending this free zine to someone who apparently claimed s/he didn’t want it, I have still not recovered financially or in terms of my online presence. Still, so many people do subscribe (over 1,000) and they do deserve to get this free missive from me. I hope you like it, too.
