Teens, Film Buffs and Political Pundits All Have ThemÂ?At Last, Blogs That Meet the Demands of TodayÂ?s Professional Women.

Today, WorldWIT™, the world’s largest off- and online networking group for women in business, launched web logs, or blogs, exclusively for professional women (http://blogs.worldwit.org). WorldWIT’s 40,000 members now have three channels where they can find in-depth, quality, content on such topics as networking, work/life balance and a woman’s customer advantage. Bloggers can also discover summer work/life solutions such as weekend vacation ideas, tips on negotiating your own personal summer hours and advice on how to ask the boss about telecommuting from the beach.

WorldWIT’s premiere blogs offer a new communication channel for professional women to share experience and read commentary and observations about the challenges, rewards and strategies of being a working woman in 2005. Unlike the typical, ranty, freeform blogs, WorldWIT blogs are moderated to keep the content on topic. WorldWIT’s blog editors have a combined 50 years of business experience, and offer bloggers a voice that may achieve the greatest reach ever.

Women can post their own thoughts and insights on being, for instance, the most influential purchasers in our society and yet one of the most underrepresented groups in corporate leadership.

•    The Business Mom blog, moderated by Liz Ryan, CEO of WorldWIT, looks at the intersection of, conflict between, and negotiation around business life and home life in a family with kids. How do we do it? What works?

•    The Customer Clique blog, moderated by Jeannie Walters, vice president at Vox, explores issues and examples, good and bad, of how companies can recognize women as the influential customers they are. By doing so, companies can increase profitability and loyalty of the largest buying group in the world.

•    The Networking for Success blog, moderated by Felicia Davis, president of Davis Consulting Group, is the place where both corporate and entrepreneurial women can find tips, strategies and powerplays for developing and building strong networks.

WorldWIT’s CEO and founder, Liz Ryan, says, “Everywhere we go in the US and abroad we talk to women who find that they there is not an easy-to-use outlet to find and share wisdom.” She continues, “Our blogs now compliment the short soundbites of content shared on the WorldWIT lists; the WorldWIT discussion community serves as a Q & A, and the blog allows women to dig deeper.”
