Blazing a Purple Trail

Thus far, more than a dozen Purple WomenTM and one man have put up 264 posts since the inception of this blog.

The blog founder (that's me, The Purple Woman, as I shall be known going forward) has endeavored to keep it interesting and topical, serious and polite, and to network and fiddle as much as she can to improve the readability of this offering. The rewards are in the comments alone, and the readership is growing.

MyBlogLog just announced that they are being bought by Yahoo! It will just get bigger and better. It's a great way to get to know the readers of this blog and discover what other blogs they read.
(See the Recent Readers box in the sidebar.) The goal of this site has never been to make money; it was designed as a platform to launch my book project. First we are building readership and a purple community.

Contributors Wanted
Here, we encourage dialogue, and diversity in perspective and voice. Currently, our Regular Contributors are all Americans. Due to the global nature of this publishing medium we have an international readership. We need to open up the dialogue a little, culturally speaking.

Purple WomenTM from our readership, who have an idea for a story, are invited to contribute a Guest Post. Please email Teri . We'd love to hear from you, regardless of where you hang your purple hat.
You can remain anonymous, of course, and you can also use it as a platform to promote your own blog. Pretty neat, huh? Let me know if you're interested and I'll forward the guidelines. In particular, I'd like to hear from my Purple sisters abroad and from a parent.

Recently, I had the priveledge of meeting
M, as she goes in the blogosphere. She wrote an excellent post on her personal blog this week called Bowling Alone, but Blogging Together. She will be our next Guest Contributor.

One of my daughters just got into TCU in Ft. Worth, Texas, and their color is purple.

She used to HATE HATE HATE purple, one of my favorite colors, until she became interested in going back to Texas and TCU or SMU.

Now she can't get enough of purple.

I just had to let you know. This isn't relevant to your post...

Mother Pie - That is too funny. Purple is strange that way. It is totally feminine, maybe not as much as pink, but controversial!

Your comment actually relates better to my post last Friday. No worries - thanks for sharing. Your comment is a gift!

I decided to bail on MyBlogLog...I was getting added by too many spammers...being the 4,700th contact on someone's list wasn't what I had in mind for my blog...

Oh, well. =) Hopefully the sale of it to Yahoo! will allow them to fine-tune it a bit...
