After BBAW wrapped this past week, I felt reflective, and while I was musing about all that I’d learned, I wrote a post about branding.
What is our unique voice and presence on our blog(s), and what does it convey?
Since this blog is An Interior Journey—which started out as Explorations and then morphed into Explorations, Reflections, and Meditations—I decided that the answer to that question lay in the title and what it conveys.
An inner journey, if you will. Recently I took one of my characters from Embrace the Whirlwind and launched an interior journey in a new book called Interior Designs. A play on her career as an interior designer, but also a symbol of the inner explorations she would have to pursue as she tried to understand the mistakes she’d made…and change the direction of her life.
Do you ever do that? Wonder about why you did what you did in the past? I’m sure that most of us do at one time or another. Obviously, we can’t change the past, but maybe we can figure out our feelings and behavior and change the present.
So, in embarking on this interior journey with Martha Scott Cummings, the abandoned wife from ETW, we learn that there is a lot more to this character than we saw in the first book.
Yes, she came across in ETW as a b…h, but she, like everyone in this world, has some redeeming qualities. At least I believe that most people do have those qualities. Sometimes they’re hard to find, and we might have to dig deep to find them. But maybe it’s worth the exploration.
What, if any, unique experiences have led to your blog presence? I hope you’ll share.
