If you are clicking on some of the links — i.e. in google or in posts here — to my Gazette Turning the Page blog and getting an error message, it’s because there are still some things to be done on the new site. I’ll let you know when things are back to normal again.

Pantyhose for men: A marketing opportunity

If I were going to find a new line of work, I would seriously consider a marketing career with one of the big pantyhose companies like Secret. One of my goals would be to expand their customer base to include men, because my blog research has proven to me that there is a huge, largely untapped market.

Double posting and pointers

I’ve been double posting a lot of my blog posts for the past year or so, here and on The Gazette site — mostly for the benefit of international (re: not in Canada) readers so that they wouldn’t have to deal with the paper’s paywall.
