BeJane.com - Web Portal for Women's DIY

BeJane.com - Home Improvement for Women BeJane.com has been around for a number of years and it's been going through some deep foundational changes lately.  I don't know what they've got up their sleeves, but it looks thoughtful and creative. 

If you're into shouldering your own home improvements, it might be a good time to sign up for their newsletter and let the projects roll.

By the way, here are some encouraging factoids from their most recent newsletter (today):

Singe female homeowners are estimated to nearly double from 17 million in 2005 to 32 million in 2010
Single women own nearly 1 in 4 homes in the US while single men own 1 in 8
Women drive 80% of purchases in the home
Women make 61%+ of all Home Improvement purchases in the US
Nearly 10.4 million firms are owned by women (50% or more), employing more than 12.8 million people, and generating $1.9 trillion in sales.

So hey, if you've been wanting to whoop it up and yell, "Chicks rule!", today would be a good day.



I second that notion Mag.. Chicks Rule.. Woop Woop!

I've been wondering about what's happening to Be Jane. Here's looking forward to exciting new things.
