    Hey Guy!

    I just wanted to tell everyone here that I started a new blog called Miles, Fashion, and Food

    It is a travel blog targeted towards females to get them to become frequent flyers.

    Feel free to check it out if you've got the time and let me know what you think!

    Miles, Fashion, Food

    Thanks,

    Meghan

    Welcome to Milepoint! I like the idea of your blog- even if I guess that my partner (who is female and a very frequent flyer logging ~250K actual miles flown a year mostly on longhaul Asia/Europe/Latin America) would win the lottery twice in a row prior to commencing on a mileage-run. Two suggestions-
    1.Create a glossary of Acronyms- EQM probably doesn't mean a lot to people who are not yet in the "know".
    2. Any way to expand to make it more international? It seems a bit USA-centric at the moment.

    Thanks for considering milepoint for one of your launch platforms. :)
    Good luck!
    A suggestion: Mention this website in your blog for a positive symbiotic relationship. It is a win win situation.

    Thanks guy for all your support and suggestions, I will definitely use some of them! I made the exact same post on FlyerTalk and they banned me for life for spanning. So I will now be 100% using MilePoint. I am glad to see the MilePoint community is far more supportive!

    Yes, my gf doesn't care about elite status and glazes over when I describe details. She likes that I have it, and she likes that I find good fares, but she is awfully ambivalent when it comes to doing any of it herself. I think you'll need to explain several different reasons why new frequent flyers should care (e.g., some people do it for the RDMs, others for the EQMs, etc.).

    They banned you for life without warning based on one post, maybe even your first? That's extreme.

    Well said Scottrick. Free tickets should sweeten the equation- or create an area of the blog for "partners" who also administer the FF accounts of their better half.

    I especially like that your profile says you're ORD based. Those provincial folks from JFK, LHR, and CDG don't realize that we are a real center of taste and culture. :D

    You should slip in a little bit on theater now and then, Chicago is definitely a significant leader and innovator in live theater.

    You could plan a road-trip to Toronto for that :)
