I was honored recently to be named to the Top 20 PR Power Women, which is a list of women who blog on PR and marketing. The list was put together by Kami Huyse, who brought to our attention that only a small percentage of The Power 150 top marketing and PR bloggers are women.
My friend Valeria Maltoni felt that perhaps the reason for so few women in the top lists is that they are as yet undiscovered. She was inspired to create a W-List to help promote these women bloggers. This is much like Mack Collier’s Z-List from last year (which, by the way, helped publicize my blog quite a bit). The Z-list was an effort to bring more attention to blogs which Mack felt weren’t getting their due. One offshoot of the Z-list was the original W-List put together by Tammy Vitale. This list was an effort to bring attention to women bloggers as well.
The New W-List
I am sharing Valeria’s new W-List with you. Regardless of gender, these are blogs which have quality content and provide new ideas. As with the Z-list, feel free to pay this forward by adding your favorite female bloggers. To the new W-list (taken from Lori Magno’s blog), I am adding these ladies:
Stephanie Weaver: Experienceology – Stephanie was one of my adds to the Z-list as well, and she writes a great blog on customer experience.
Maria Palma: CustomersAreAlways – Maria writes about taking care of customers and great customer service.
Tammy Vitale: Women, Art, Life – Since Tammy created the original W-List, I thought she should be on it! Tammy is an entrepreneur and artist.
Michele Miller: Wonderbranding: Marketing to Women – Michele’s blog focuses on marketing to women and how companies are meeting the needs or missing the mark.
Rosa Say: Managing with Aloha – Rosa is inspired by the values of the Hawaiian Islands, and she weaves them together with business concepts to inspire leaders.
Here is the list with my add-ins inserted in alphabetical order. Visit a few this weekend and expand your horizons!
