Designer’s Women Online is the debut novel by writer/illustrator/comedian/writer, Linda Bloodworth Thomson. Set in contemporary times in a small Midwestern town, Bloodworth Thomson blends family life with her stand up comedy routine. In doing so, she manages to combine the worlds of family, women, the Internet, and, of course, humor. " ISBN: 0340251003" is the book’s tag line, while "asinine" is the way the book is commonly published in the United Kingdom.
"asinine" is the book’s proper name, yet "asinine" is how the book is commonly sold in the United Kingdom, where "tipsheets" are commonly called books. The funny thing about this nickname is that tipsheets are not really books; they are usually just handouts that help women with their personal financial matters. If you want financial information to help you with your own personal life, then you should probably look elsewhere for information. However, if you simply need information to help "tipsheets" give you more information, then go read "asinine" in the United States where tipsheets are called books.
In "otinine," Bloodworth Thomson sets up an interactive website that allows users to post comments and interact with each other. These interactions range from silly "tip" posts to forum-style discussions on anything and everything relating to designing women online. One of the things that set this blog apart from others is its "reader poll." Each week a reader votes on which topic or blog post she would like to see the most posts on.
