Bathroom Blogfest '08 - Cleaning Up Forgotten Spaces Around Us

Welcome to Bathroom Blogfest '08 - Cleaning Up Forgotten Spaces!

Since 2006, a group of women bloggers focused on the customer experience has reserved one week each year to discuss a most important location - the ladies room. Because everyone needs them, restrooms are universally necessary, making them a hugely important - and often forgotten - part of the customer experience in retail locations.

This year, Christine and I are joining the conversation once again via both Carpetology and Flooring the Consumer. We encourage you to comment, get involved and send us your own experiences, both good and bad. We'll be discussing ladies rooms, of course, but also other forgotten spaces around us that could use a good sprucing up - entry ways, changing rooms or any other areas that affect the customer experience but aren't accorded the attention they deserve.

We Women of Wear-Dated, as well as our 18 other cohorts, will be posting on any and all topics related to the loo and how it impacts retail experiences. Last year’s Blogfest featured posts on such diverse topics as Disney Land, family-owned businesses, bus stations and better automatic flushers. [You can read last year's discussion here at the 2007 Bathroom Blogfest group site.] Look for even more creative posts this year...

Thanks very much for the welcome, Marianna! I watched last year's Bathroom Blogfest unfold, so I'm eager to put in my own two cents this year - it's shaping up to be quite an experience.
