Launching Well-Groomed!

First, I want to thank those of you who responded to my anonymous reader's comment that last week's Sweet Brands post was homophobic or misogynistic. I really was curious to know if I'd made an error in posting the feature, and many of you agreed that it was humorous, not hurtful. Keep the comments coming, and let me know what you think about that post and any other one.

On to happier news, today my husband launched his new groom style blog called Well-Groomed. I know this isn't really dessert news, but it is design news since I designed the blog and our friend Maddy Hauge of Inspired Bride designed the logo. Since the blog has consumed a lot of my time and creative energy for the last few months, I thought I'd show you a little of what we came up with.

Since grooms are often overlooked in the wedding blogosphere, he decided to create a blog that features grooms and offers style advice without also featuring tons of frilly dresses.

The blog also features lots of examples of real grooms who had some amazing wedding style. So, if you are a guy or know a guy who's getting married please swing by and check it out. If you're a bride who's trying to convince your groom to step out of his style comfort zone for the big day, you'll find lots here to help persuade him.

I'll be back tomorrow with more of the sweet posts you love!

My comment was not meant as an attack on you Shauna and I hope you didnt take it that way! We'll just have to agree to disagree on the mammoth ice cream packaging. Love your blog and read it regularly :D

Hi Anonymous,

Absolutely no offense taken. One of the reasons I hate chatting online is that no one can "hear" your tone of voice. I was more concerned that I may have unintentionally hurt a lot of readers' feelings or offended them so I wanted to immediately let everyone know that I wouldn't have posted the story if I personally thought it was homophobic. So, I was opening the topic up to everyone to see if I had inadvertently made a mistake. If others felt the same way, I would have immediately yanked the post.

My husband and I have very close family members who are gay, and so I'm very sensitive to that topic. In this case, I thought the ad was speaking to a certain demographic, not bashing another. I may have formed that opinion based on my marketing background and based on the full synopsis of the company's mission statement that I read before selecting the brand for Sweet Brands. So perhaps someone with a different background would have a different interpretation, and I wanted to "check in" with the readers to gauge their reaction.

I hope you'll continue to read the blog, and let me know when you think something's wrong/offensive. I never want to alienate any of you.

I truly thank you for your input.
