Today, my dear friend Adrienne and I are rolling out
our new website FinallyMe.com.
As you can see, our target audience is women of substance,
intelligence, wisdom and experience
who are continually growing and responding with grace
(at least most of the time)
to life's challenges and rewards. . . .
in other words YOU.
We're posting articles on relationships
(marriages, live-ins, friendships, family);
(empty nest, menopause, deaths, divorce,
caring for parents, having kids come back home,
mid-life dating, and so on);
and mind-body-spirit stuff.
We're concentrating on women's passions --
like travel, books, films, photography. . . you name it.
We're featuring discussions in a column
called "Speaking Freely" and the first one
is a humorous article by blogger extraordinaire
Beth McWilliams of "Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Taken."
Who knows. . . we might even tell the truth
about perimenopause and menopause
and getting older.
And we're profiling Extraordinary Women.
I've profiled Mary Surratt for starters,
but have contacted some EW's that I know
and asked for their permission
to introduce them via FinallyMe.
If you know someone who you think
is intriguing or who has a fascinating story,
please steer them in my direction
or send me an email address
so I can follow up with them.
I may be asking some of you for permission
to repost some of your most delightful blog posts.
And I'll be starting a FinallyMe Flickr group
so we can share our favorite photos.
If you choose to share in that group,
please indicate in the photo's info box
if you're willing to let us
borrow your photos to illustrate articles.
We're doing this out of passion,
so we can't pay anyone
but we'll make sure there's a credit
embedded with the photos in the article body.
If you have something you'd love to contribute --
maybe Fascinating Women profiles,
articles about your passions,
book reviews or what have you,
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frequent visits and intelligent comments welcome --
you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Update: we launched 6 hours ago
and we're up to 142 visits.
