Celebrate Your Friendships! as featured in Women’s World magazine

Girlfriendology-quote-celebrate-friendshipShare our similarities, celebrate our differences. (Celebrate our friendships too!)    M. Scott Peck

Do you? Do you celebrate your friendships? Do you recognize the similarities and differences that make our friends special in our lives? Do you feel blessed that your friends are in your life?

That’s our goal here at Girlfriendology – home of inspiration, appreciation and celebration of Girlfriends. We’re all about recognizing and acknowledging the women in your life who are there for you, sharing ‘women’s wisdom’ so we all benefit, and inspiring women to connect and support each other.

This message is getting around as we’ve been featured in a couple national magazines lately. We’re honored to have been interviewed by INC. Magazine. (Albeit, it was an article on Pinterest but Girlfriendology is still featured!) And we were thrilled to talk with ‘Women’s World’ about friendship. Here’s an excerpt (since the image is a bit hard to read, sorry!):

Womans World magazine articleStart a “no-stress” book club! Getting together with your friends helps strengthen bonds. And keeping your meetings unofficial will make everyone have more fun, says friendship expert Debba Haupert. “I have ‘no-stress’ book club meetings,” she says. “We take a half hour before we start discussing the books to just talk. And there’s no pressure to even read the books! … In the summer when the windows are open, you can hear us laughing down the street!”

Phone a Friend this Sunday! Even though there’s Facebook and Twitter – you need to hear your friends’ voices now and then. That’s why we started a tradion called ‘Phone a Friend Sunday.’ … It’s therapeutic and necessary to keep your friendships strong.

How do you celebrate your friendships? How do you stay connected with your friends? Here are some more ideas:

Girlfriendology & Girlfriends Featured in Anderson University Alumni News

Friendship Alumni news GirlfriendologyYeah! I’m using my business degree! (:

A LONG time ago I went to a small, liberal arts college, Anderson University, in the midwest and am proud to say, I graduated in four years (surprisingly!) with a double major in Marketing and Management. The best thing about my small, liberal arts college in the midwest, without a doubt, was the friendships that I still have to this day and cannot (and do not want to) imagine my life without these friends who have stuck with me for a long time and who I know will continue to do so!

Recently my college alumni news publication, Signatures Magazine, asked for a chance to interview me on being a blogger (and using my business degree – yeah!) and sent a photographer over to take a photo of me for the article. Fortunately some of my great girlfriends (who are also bloggers and work online) were generous enough to be there for the photo too. So BIG thanks to Julie Sweeney, Julie Bauke and Joanne Westwood for being my support team and fabulous models (: in the photo.

5 Years of Inspiring Female Friendship – The Girlfriendology Celebration!

Friendship 5 years of GirlfriendologyInspiration, Appreciation and Celebration of Girlfriends – for five years!

Five years ago today I wrote a ‘love letter’ to my girlfriends. Brought on by two dear friends dealing with cancer and feeling a very conscious ‘need’ to be around my friends, I wanted to express my appreciation and to explore why female friendship was so important to me and to all women.

Research confirmed the reasons we NEED girlfriends. Female friendship makes us healthier, happier, less stressed, live longer and feel more beautiful. Again, we NEED girlfriends. Husbands, boyfriends, guy friends can be great (we’re not against that) but there is nothing that can take the place of a dear friend who understands, cares, accepts and loves you. Nothing. Nada. No way. We need girlfriends.

Like a tiny seed that one day becomes an orange gerbera daisy (aka: … Read More
