The Secret is Out...

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Aug 28th, 2006 3:26pm

Considering that (a) only three people read my blog and (b) publishers are not taking numbers to see who gets to offer me a book deal, the fact that I am good writer is pretty much a well-kept secret.

Diva Marketing Blog - Article

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Aug 24th, 2006 11:14pm

However, there have been a few traumatic experiences in my shopping life and several of those were centered around car shopping.
