Blogging is a very unique, personal, form of communication. We bloggers get to sit in front of our computer screens at all hours of the night and day, in all forms of dress or undress, and pontificate about anything that interests us, in the hope that someone will read our pearls of wisdom, and even better, post a comment.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 14, I get to up the ante by being part of WGPAâ€™s morning program, â€œDaybreakâ€ from approx. 8:15 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. The show is streamed live online at http://www.wgpasunny1100.com and the call-in number is 610-866-8074.
We wonâ€™t be discussing politics, at least not local politics. We will be discussing the status of women in the developing world and the economic impact women are beginning to have on the global economyâ€¦from America to Afghanistan.
I hope youâ€™ll be listening, and most of all, I hope youâ€™ll call in to say hello, share your thoughts, and join the conversation, because after 9:00 a.m., this radio Cinderella turns back in to a blogger pumpkin, stuck behind her computer screen once again.

An observation Pam: I’d say about 2/3 of the small business owners with whom I work on a daily basis are Women owned businesses. One of my favorites, a serial entrepreneaur, owns three businesses, chairs one of my committees and is a HUGE organizer for fundraising events to support local animal shelters. Two other women own/manage multiple residential properties (and scare the tar out of the college students who rent and misbehave). One of these women operates two restaurants, acts as a developer and is pregnant with her second child. Her husband looks like he hasn’t slept in weeks.
If you want to see the impact women have on the economy, visit businesses in Bethlehem, Emmaus, Easton and Kutztown. The economic revitalization of these communities is largely due to women owned businesses.
I’ll also point out that the mayor of Kutztown is a woman and has owned/operated her travel agency for years.
