Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Honoring the path
One of the best things I did to promote my memoir, "Following the Whispers," was to join Dani Greer's Book Blog Tour class. I don't believe it's being offered currently, but folks can join the BBT cafe on Yahoo Groups. I "met" so many wonderful people in that class, folks I now consider friends, although we've never met in person.
The class taught me a lot about social networking and blogging in paricular. When I first began, I thought I'd never make it to 100 followers, the magic number Dani said one needed to host an author on a book tour. Well, I noticed yesterday that my lil ole blog has reached that milestone. Perhaps it's time to consider a book blog tour? Is it too late?
Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing to follow me and my musings on creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance.
