Groundswell Reviews & Carpetology Testimonials - Thank You!

You may know that Wear-Dated entered this blog into the 2008 Forrester Groundswell Awards. It was intense putting together My Forrester Groundswell Awards Submission for the Talking category... But, did I ever learn a lot from the process!

On October 29, 2008, Forrester announced the results in 2008 Forrester Groundswell Awards Winners.... No, we didn't win the top spot in the Talking category. However, we did win.

We won because our entry generated the most fantastic reviews and testimonials for The Carpetology Blog from you that I could ever hope for - in my wildest dreams! In other words, we won together.

Thank you!

I have recaptured them here - all 14 of them - to celebrate what we accomplished together.

This site is full of everything carpet and does an excellent job of keeping all readers up-to-the-minute within the industry. I love that it is written from women to women, but is still pertinent to men as well. The writers are intelligent and engaging. Very well done!

Lead me thru the hype - Reviewed September 18, 2008 by challenged

So often in a blog or web information site the vision is narrow. In a industry that has a vast selection process. Products that look the same but truly perform differently. It serves the consumer and the trade well to receive inspiration and direction from professionals that look outside of the simple interest of their product. The trade recognizes performance, however very few are able to address more than one section (theirs) of the industry. Great Job women of Wear-Dated. You have help complete the picture for consumers and trade professionals.

Never predictable! - Reviewed September 2, 2008 by SallyK from NH

Having been a part of this industry for over 32 years, I absolutely LOVE how this blog ALWAYS piques my interest by being totally fascinating as well as unpredictable - whether I'm reading about a gym that could have done better listening to customers or an Elvis festival with its own unique efforts at brand building or the latest design trends complete with a photo of the hot pink display carpeting - this blog is fun, educational and inspiring! Thank you Ms. Whittemore and your team at WD for teaching an old dog some new tricks!

This case study in particular and the Carpetology blog in general does an excellent job of appealing the consumer....the female consumer.
