Forum 4 Women

I had been spending a lot of time on marketing forums and the issues were always the same. So, I decided to find a forum where one could discuss a broad range of topics. That way, I wouldn't have to join 5 different forums. There seem to be so many forums out there for mothers or professional women and so on. It's like each forum is a group that includes a certain type of woman.

What about women that don't have children or those that don't feel so professional? There were only a couple of forums that were all inclusive. Most of those were geared around articles, so one has to do a lot of reading before asking a simple question. Who has that kind of time?

A few forums weren't monitored very well and had naughty posts on them. I mentioned the posts to the admin of one of the forums. She stated that she had 19 forums and didn't have time to monitor them all. OK, so now I know her forum had not much to do about helping women and more to do about making money. That just really doesn't seem right.

I also saw a lot of organizations for women without a forum. Wouldn't it be nice to have a place where an organization would be seen by many women? There were sure a lot of organizations that I hadn't heard of.

I also thought it would be nice to have a forum that wasn't plastered with advertising. Many of the forums I saw seemed to have one goal. That goal was to fill every inch of space with an advertisement.

I think women are worth more than that. I think it would be great to have a place where we all can go to discuss whatever we'd like. A place more interested in helping women than making money off of them. A place where we can help each other instead of pointing to a list of articles. And, a place where we can support each other no matter what.

Thank you for visiting!
