Update your bookmarks! NEW blog address…

Hi Everyone,

First of all, Happy New Year. I wish each and everyone of you much success in 2011. This year I will continue to provide you with advice, articles and tips on WOW-ing in your professional and personal lives. As the volume and type of content evolves and the blog’s traffic ever-growing, comes the time of an upgraded blog. So I’m excited to announce that my blog has moved to a new server! Please update your bookmarks and e-mail subscriptions and point them to:

I look forward to a fantastic year with you all.

A Holiday Message from Frances Cole Jones

As 2010 ends I wanted to take a moment to thank you all so very much for your interest, feedback, and suggestions this past year– and tell you a bit about what’s in store for 2011.

I don’t know if you had a chance to see my Forbes.com piece on why mixing business and pleasure is a dangerous cocktail but this column is an ongoing assignment and I would love to hear what you’d like me to be writing about in the new year.

I’m looking forward to speaking on The Art of Sales at the Spark and Hustle conference in New York in March.

Topics for upcoming Wows of the Week include:

  • The importance of setting 3-day, 3-month and 3-year goals
  • Why “No” is just the opening gambit in a negotiation, and
  • How to use “quick wins” (not quick fixes) to boost morale for yourself and those around you

I’ll be adding a number of new items to the Wow Store—among other things, the search for the perfect women’s blue shirt appears to be drawing to a close– stay tuned.

I’ve been getting such great feedback from those of you who downloaded the Interview Wow app that I’m contemplating another. Details to come.

And “just so you know, FYI,” in the “upcoming future’ I will continue adding to my list of “core foundational” redundancies that drive me wild….Keep sending them along!

Most importantly, however, I would like to say how privileged I feel for the time and attention you have given this space this past year. I truly appreciate it.

With gratitude and joy,

Frances

101 More Women Bloggers to Watch for 2010

I’m very proud to be on this list! From WE Magazine for Women:

This list of inspiring and aspiring bloggers is one of our best yet. Most of the women bloggers to watch that made this list have been blogging for at least 2 years, but we do have some relative newcomers to the world of blogging.  Each blog has a style of its own with substantive content that is both interesting and targeted to specific demographics. This list is different from the last few we have published in that many of these women bloggers were nominated by others who read previous lists of our women bloggers and left a comment in our comment section mentioning their favorite blogs.  Blogs about business, life, motherhood, finance, religion, sports, fitness, food, lifestyle, coaching, mentoring, the arts, crafts, wellness, travel, beauty, fashion, writing, careers, going green, technology, sex, work at home and more. We even added a few health-specific topic blogs to the mix this year.

I am sure you will enjoy reading about these women and checking out their blogs as much as WE had putting this list of Women Bloggers to Watch.

If you do stop by their blogs, please let them know you heard about them at WE Magazine for Women. Our Mission is to Showcase Women, their talents, treasures and expertise focusing on Busy Women on the Move.

Enjoy!
