Support “The Region”

I just love Urban Dictionary! Just the other day, I was listening to a radio show on BlogTalkRadio.com, and they were talking about side pieces and the jumpoff. They were using the two terms practically interchangeably, which is incorrect. To be sure, I did a search on Urban Dictionary, and one could argue that they are the same things, but there are very technical differences between a side piece and a side piece.

But this blog isn’t about side pieces or the jumpoff. It’s about another piece of slang that I wasn’t aware of at all until this Sunday. I had the co-founder of Single Tease (no, it’s not a porn site), Tamera Lawrence, on the show talking about her great T-shirts that help break the ice between people. You can listen to a piece of it on Words Cause.

During the interview, she mentioned that the chest area of a woman is referred to as “the region”.

I had no idea!

I asked some women at work if they knew about “the region”, and they were familiar with this term for their chest. I went to Urban Dictionary, and “the region” was only defined as Northwest Indiana. So, I added a new definition for “the region”:

Tasteful female slang for the area of their body containing their boobs
She wore a T-shirt with text printed above The Region

All of humanity needs your help! Check out the page for “the region” on Urban Dictionary and click on the thumbs-up for the new definition! It is currently the third definition listed.

Thanks for your support!

The Women of Words Cause

I know, the pervs were probably expecting some pictures of scantily clad women. For that, you should go here. For the rest of you, Dean and I had four incredibly amazing women on the Dean and Jared Words Cause Radio Show yesterday.

Laura and Lori have teamed up to provide amazing technological advancements in the health care industry.

Marianne quit a cushy job of 16 years to start her own business.

Rebekah is a mother of three boys, a wife of 17 years to a veteran, and the founder of more than half a dozen resources for health information.

How do they all do it? Click here to read a little bit more information about Laura, Lori, Marianne, and Rebekah.

Internet Marketing Genius… It Ain’t Easy!

I’ve been spending a lot of time researching PPC search engine Internet marketing techniques over the last several months. The truth is that I’ve dabbled in Internet marketing for years, but I was never part of an hundred million dollar Internet marketing campaign. Print, on the other hand… Print, I’ve generated more than $60 million from print marketing over the last 3 and a half years. Much of that print has driven Internet results, which means that I need to know enough about Internet marketing to be dangerous!

One of the things I love about my side job as a radio host for the WordsCause Radio Show on BlogTalkRadio.com is that I get to interview great people! This Saturday, I get to interview the guy behind the very successful Internet marketing campaigns of Jdate, True.com, and several other successful Internet companies in highly competitive fields: Patrick Thona.

Patrick has been working in the Internet marketing business for many years and has many successes under his belt with both PPC and organic traffic. His latest endeavor is an online petition website. He’ll be sharing some simple, yet powerful, secrets to his trade that we’ll all be able to put to use in our own online marketing efforts. Catch the Internet Talk Radio broadcast on BlogTalkRadio.com this Saturday at 10AM Pacific.
