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: (more…)

Celebrating … 5 Years of Inspiration, Appreciation & Celebration of Girlfriends

Friendship 5 years of GirlfriendologyTime flies when you’re having fun … with your girlfriends!

Five years ago this month I started Girlfriendology. It was just a dream (that grew (-: ) of inspiring women to appreciate and celebrate the wonderful gift of female friendship. Initially, it was inspired by two girlfriends who were dealing with cancer, Allison and Dana. Their struggles and prognosis made me want to be with my girlfriends, not just them but all of the wonderful women in my life.

I did a little research to explore the dynamics of female friendship and if we really needed it in our lives and found a wonderful book that confirmed everything I had been thinking – The Tending Instinct, by Shelley E. Taylor. There’s proof – we NEED girlfriends! So, Girlfriendology.com launched to promote, inspire and celebrate female friendship.

It’s grown over the past five years to be a wonderful (and, might I add, beautiful!) community of women. We have over 20,000 (primarily) women as our Twitter followers, 13,000+ female Facebook Friends, and receive over 100,000 female impressions DAILY(more…)
