Sharing the “Women Grow Business” Love

If you’re an ardent fan of Women Grow Business, as I am (d’oh), you probably think of this blog community as your safe place (or at least one of them). A place you can come to unwind, learn and get to know other stellar women in business like yourself – or like you one day hope to be. In short, it’s your women entrepreneur community.

Thanks to the efforts of founding editor Jill Foster and unwavering support from Network Solutions, this delightful community has received some pretty awesome recognition to date. Remember the Forbes honor (listed among the top blogs by women for marketing and social media)? Not to mention several extremely well-deserved individual honors and mentions for Jill and many of our contributors.

There was a lot of Women Grow Business love going around last year… and we loved it.

I’m thrilled that this year is continuing in the same vein. So in case you missed them, I wanted to share a couple of unique mentions we’ve received recently:

Wally Bock listed us as a resource for women in business on his Three Star Leadership blog – referred by a delighted reader, no less (thank you, Anne Perschel).

And earlier this month, we were listed on the 100 best blogs for women in business at AccountingDegree.com.

W00t!

As I’ve said before, Women Grow Business is nothing without its community. So thank you for lifting us (Image: Emily Correia, Creative Commons) and keeping us going.

More ways you can share the love, if you’d be willing:

Or if you’d rather be a strong but silent supporter – that’s ok too. Either way – thank you!

    1. w00t!!!

      Let's do all of the above ladies. And we can make it into a project. We can add each other's blogs to our blogroll, and maybe have a comment day, where we all make it a point to support our WGBiz blog and each other's… I didn't know there was a badge!
      Awesome.

      One easy idea to support each other, we could steal Guy's idea for Alltop. I'm sure he wouldn't mind. We can use tools like EasyTweet, or su.pr to add any post by Women Grow Business to our Twitter stream automatically. And use Tweet Post to add the posts to our Facebook pages.

      Shonali, maybe we could have a publicity brunch summit where we all share ideas about how to promote the site and come up with a plan, which we could then share with the audience that reads the blog? I'll donate the bagel budget! Promoting wgbiz is promoting ourselves, after all. And by sharing it we turn it into a public serve.

      Yay team!

    2. @Shonali – Double W00t!

      What a great energy boost and how exciting. Congrats on everything (and yikes, a guest post is coming!).

      @Tinu – Your brunch summit sounds super. It could possibly involve casual video interviews too between eachother, micro 1 or 2 minute Flip clips, about #wgBiz benefits and ideas from the brunch.

    3. Tinu – yes yes yes! Sorry this is late, btw, I was traveling. A woman growing business and all. ;-) Hold on to your hat, we're trying to figure out a summit-kinda-thing… so you'll hear about it as soon as I know it's happening!

      @Jill, hey girl!!
