Have You Heard About Me?

Dear Darling Readers,

Welcome to the very first page of Have You Heard! From here on, you will be seeing things from my perspective, and my perspective ONLY. I may not always be ethical or politically correct, but there's one thing you can be sure of- I tell it like it is. From this point onwards, I refer to myself as

Mavenette: the information specialist.


For those of you who are wondering what exactly Mavenette means, let me explain…


In “The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make A Big Difference” by Malcolm Gladwell it is explained that there are three types of people that are required to create a tipping point (a tipping point is the point where a new trend begins).

Connectors: social glue, ones who are responsible for sharing contacts and bringing people together

Mavens: People who are obsessed with information, love to learn everything there is to know, and conduct a lot of research for personal benefit. Mavens have credibility because they are passionate, not persuasive, and share information with others for the sake of informing the world!

Salespeople: people who are great for spreading the word, extremely persuasive


So as I learned about this in my Understanding the Media class, it dawned on me that I am a maven... and as a maven, it is my duty to share with you only the best of the best, the crème de la crème (as the French would say!)


Be sure to look out for the following ratings:

**MaVeNeTTe apProVed** I have tried it and strongly recommend it!

**tRiEd aNd DeNieD!!** I have given this a shot, but unfortunately, I’m not a fan

**fAiL** NO CHANCE!! This fell way below Mavenette standards



Feel free to share your thoughts with me in the comment box... And if you have alternate reviews, I would lovee to hear about them!



Until next time,

Mavenette xx
