Years ago my friend Esme at the Chocolates and Croissants blog had told me that the title of her blog had caused companies to send her chocolates for review. I remember at the time thinking,
“Clearly I did not think through the name of my own blog”
I suppose I could have called this blog COFFEE Journey, or New Jeep Journey, just to see what might have come my way…. but alas, Book Journey is a good title and it has worked for me.
While Book Journey has always been a place where I can write about books it has over the years become so much more. Not only has this site brought me great joy in friendships, connections to wonderful publishing companies, and taken me places like the Book Expo in New York – it also has caused me to be a more confident writer. After all, I pretty much write every day. 😀
The most recent happenings on this crazy blogging ride is I received an invite to go to Minneapolis next week and sit at a round table interviewing the stars of Nicholas Sparks books that will be a movie on April 10th, The Longest Ride.
The stars are Scott Eastwood (Clint Eastwood’s son) and Britt Robertson.
Of course… I said yes.
So now, as I have not read the book yet, I will be this week. My book club, who know I have always pretty much avoided books about cowboys, westerns, or pretty much anything country…. are DELIGHTED to see I will be reading a book that has this on the cover:
I read somewhere recently that you are not living life fully unless you are spending time out of your comfort zone.
I am living life fully.
Book Journey, turns out is a very appropriate name for this blog.
I am out. I have a coffee date with a friend who recently had surgery and a long overdue lunch date. Other than that I have projects that will keep me busy all the time in-between.
Any fun stories to share?
