Dating site helps women seeking "Sugar Daddy"

There is something so wrong about this– but yet– a part of me thinks “If this is what you want and a man  is dumb enough not to see through it than you both deserve each other.”

Yeah, that’s my thought on the new dating website SugarSugar.com. It claims to pair rich guys with women seeking the “sugar” lifestyle  aka “a gold digger.” The idea is to connect a “Sugar daddy” member with “Sugar baby”. It’s hilarious… when I went to the site it features pictures of salt ‘n’ pepper men with knock-out blondes. Is it just me or does it look like this guy spray painted his hair on.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all about finding love.. even online. But SugarSugar seems more like a recipe for future relationship failure than a true find.

Pink Masquerade & Prayers Needed

Founder Maimah Karmo and her Tigerlily Foundation hosted their Pink Masquerade 2010, in hopes of raising awareness of young women battling breast cancer. I would love if you could keep my friend Stef Woods (pictured right) in your prayers. She just started her round of chemo and we are wishing her strength with much love during this challenging journey.

Thank you to Maimah and her network for continuing to educate our public about how real this disease is and how it can touch anyone… no matter how old you are.

Luncheon Topic: Tips on giving your story flair to make it on-air

  • Get good at writing short (2-3 paragraph) news releases and remember to tailor each release for the specific media outlet you’re pitching it to. Keep it simple, reporters have minimal time to skim your pitch. If you can reference the reporter’s previous work on the topic.
  • Ask yourself how this story will HELP the public, in this case the reader of viewer in your community.
  • Follow the news: Editors, reporters want a story that is relevant. For instance, a story on the hottest organic cosmetics may work around Earth Day.
  • Zone in on media franchises within stations and newspapers. Does your business tailor more toward a green reporter, health reporter, style etc. Research the big bloggers that take on these issues and reach out.
  • Network the old fashion way. Check out local events, drive into DC if you have to. A reporter or media outlet is more likely to give you a second look if you can preface your pitch with “We met at…”
  • Build a media call list: Fair.org has a list of emails/contacts for network affiliates but it’s up to you to do the research to get the main contacts for the papers and TV stations you’re interested in. You can always call the outlet and ask for the contact info for the person to pitch a story to. They’ll give it to you.
  • Invest time in social media. Make sure your website is YOU. It is the first thing everyone will look at and like an mailed invitation will judge how great this party will be based off first impression. On your webpage make sure once your brand is in the media– you keep a resume page of your appearances, features and articles. This gives you credentials.
    • Use Facebook and Twitter to post exclusives and specials for your followers and fans. They’ll follow you and tell others too if they know they can get something the average person can’t.  
    • Look for TV stations and papers that ask for citizen or i-reporters. It’s a new trend where everyday folks submit pictures, videos and news. Angie Goff’s Angie’s Army is all about that. Her daily morning show segment is social media driven made up of reports she gets from viewers and readers.

Oh Snap! And the Oscar goes to…

Kevin, Becky, Claudia & Kate

It’s the only Academy sanctioned viewing party in DC. Oscar Night DC 2010 the third year was more glamorous than ever.  You felt amongst stars at the Oscar fitting National Museum of Women in the Arts. My friends fell in love with the champagne glasses lined with honey topped with a fresh sprig of lavender. My guess is that the gorge gowns made for more people watching then Oscar viewing. Sandra, Monique, K. Bigelow and more…  a little acceptance speech for you. We thank you giving us a reason to get decked out, wear uncomfortable kicks, eat fine food and party on a Sunday night. The events proceeds is one of the biggest fundraisers for our area’s Red Cross.

Contrary to competition belief… us news gals from different stations really do get along. So much so that we frequently meet for a girls lunch out. Today  the fab Colleen Evans invited us to the Westend Bistro in Georgetown. The menu was delightful and the white and purple cauliflower to die for.

So what do we talk about? Well, us morn gals moan and groan about our hours but then offer our condolences when the primaries like Lesli Foster, Anita Brikman and Shawn Yancy have to dip outta lunch early to prep for their show. Lindsay and I dished about the Olympics and Fashion Week… while we all gave our roundtable YES vote for Pamela Brown’s new hue for her do!
