Are Blog Tours On Their Way Out?

Choices and Illusions by Eldon TaylorI reviewed a book earlier this month called “Choices and Illusions” by Eldon Taylor that was part of a book blog tour that began the end of this month. I’ve been curious about book tours anyway and took the plunge as there were several incentives, and don’t we all love freebies!

While the book was not quite the new revelation I expected, the blog tour was definitely the introduction I’d been looking for. Of course, there are two sides to blog tours:

  1. Those who host
  2. Those looking for hosts

Blog tourI’m interested in both sides as I wanted to look into another promo for one of my grandfather’s books and also with the book reviews I’ve been doing lately thought it would be no problem to continue to accept other authors looking for willing book blog hosts.

Blog tours will be the subject of my blog post this Sunday, when I expect to complete my research into the subject and hopefully bring you information you may have been looking for as well. Stay tuned…see you back here on Sunday! ©2017 Virginia Williams Resource Box

TGIF -Freaky Friday Feature

Happy DogIf TGIF resounds with you, as it used to do with me when I was still in the work force, then you will be celebrating today as the end of your work week and looking forward to the weekend. Of course, Dr. Eldon Taylor, who wrote the book I just reviewed on this blog, Choices and Illusions, said that embracing the TGIF mentality means you hate your job. True–either that or you have plans for the weekend you just flat can’t do during a work day!

Definitely a Bichon Frise

For me, Friday is a mini-celebration, and as I’ve noted before on this Freaky Friday Feature, time to kick back, have some laughs, and hopefully enjoy a few of the fotos and funnies I’ve gleaned lately. Somehow, the puppy pictures always catch my eye!

One of my blog buddies, Rob Moses of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is a photographer who has a phenomenal eye and posted this one he called, “Mustachio.” Looks like he was having a GOOD Friday! Mustachio

Another of my buddies sends me great little ditties from time to time and I thought it was time to share a couple of those as well. Freaky, huh? Happy Friday–have a safe, warm, and dry weekend! ©2017 Virginia Williams

Choices and Illusions-How Did I Get Where I am, and How Do I Get Where I Want to Be? 

From the hype promoted for “Choices and Illusions-How Did I Get Where I Am, and How Do I Get Where I Want to Be?” I guess I expected some innovative breakthrough, or influential psychological studies that would drive home a solution, albeit not without real conscious or subconscious work on the behalf of the reader.

Choices and Illusions
January 2007 cover

This entire book, however, could basically be summed up in two words: “Own it.” Taking responsibility for yourself is a strong mantra repeated throughout, and probably learned by most who delved into self-help books beginning 20 years ago. It’s a close companion to “forgive and forget”, and ergo always more difficult that those simple words would divine. It begins with the basic tenet–we have all been imprinted–and I’ll buy that. Whether or not by accident or design, that imprint creates the composite of who we are. Continue reading “Choices and Illusions – Review”
