Want My Attention? Then Know What I Care About…


50s women talking

Talk about: My hometown.  Star TrekStar WarsTorchwood, vampires, werewolves or zombies (EEK! Geek Alert!)

Military history, Vintage cars, Classic rock, jazz or R&B

Talk about things about which I care something about.

Of course, that means knowing something about me – beyond my sex, age, geographic location and what blogs I contribute to on a regular basis.

As you can glean from the partial list above, I’ve got many different interests. Does anything on the above list tell you I’m a woman? Really?

Now, if I add to the list:


Shopping at flea markets



Interior design

THEN, you can probably pretty safely assume I’m a woman…or a man very in touch with his feminine side.

Oh – and here’s one more caveat – you gotta be interesting, rather you’re “talking” online or off.

P.S. Note to PR firms and blogger list vendors scooping emails for “women topics”: I am NOT interested in writing about parenting, how to land a man, female hair loss, breast cancer “awareness,” plus-size clothing, the newest diet aid, diapers, baby formula, those incredibly dull Real Housewives…or anything pink.

P.P.S. Nope, not ironing either. I don’t even own an ironing board. Wrinkles are – um – a fashion statement.
