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

Telling the Truth Tuesday: a question for authors
How important is blogging in the marketing aspect of a book? A few years ago, it seemed a writer must blog to promote their book. But with someone like me, who has a few hundred followers and only gets 10-20 comments a post (if I'm lucky), how important is it? Not that I want to stop, mind you. I love this little blog and I love sharing my life lessons here. And I hope some of you love reading it. I know that I purchase the books of every blogger I've come to know and admire. But do others do that? I guess I'm starting to think about what I'm going to need to do to get my novel out there once it's done and that is making me think about a lot of different things.
What are your thoughts?
