Organizing Yahoo Emails

I use Yahoo email. Yahoo is not structured for subfolders. I could not justify adding 30 to 35 email folders, one for each woman that I interviewed on the Camino. I, therefore, had all my emails with these women, sent and received, in one folder entitled Camino Interviews. Since I have had at least three…

Using copyrighted or creative commons music

I have a video for Women of the Way that I want to put to music. The song “I’m Alive” by Celine Dion is perfect, but it is copyrighted and would require licensing. I have been looking for the perfect female vocalist creative commons to use as background music. It needs to be peppy, with…

Learning the nuances of blogging and content management

Today I listened to a webinar on content strategy. I learned that my Web site is really a blog, but with managed content. As I tried to implement some of the ideas mentioned, I ran into problems. I spent a lot of time and research in trying to figure out how to get the RSS…

Writing the book Women of the Way is so much fun

I am starting my fourth transcript in two days, really on a roll. I started by doing the transcripts of conversations I had with the women I met along the Camino. I did seven or eight of these, sent them out for interviewee review and approval, and then I started filling in the story about…

Good news and lessons learned

Prior to going on the Camino, I had fantasized about writing a book about The Way. I had not considered what it would entail, how it would differentiate itself from myriads of books about the Camino, or how I would personalize it. Nothing. Writing a book was just a random thought. While walking along the…

There is so much more to writing a book than I imagined

In addition to writing the book, I am pioneering into social media and the nether-lands of the web.  I have stumbled and restarted several times. For example, I created a Facebook group and quickly found out that what I really wanted was a Facebook page, which I am now creating, with great pains. Once I…

Women of the Way Facebook Group

It is hard to believe I have been back for about 30 days. My body still wants to walk and as I read my journal and listen to the interviews, I still get that “Camino High.” I am so lucky. Today I finished reading the Pilgrimage by Paolo Coehlo. Although this was more about the…

Interview cycle

While on the Camino, I recorded conversations with over thirty women. Upon returning home, I am transcribing the conversations and then mailing them to the interviewees for verification. Once I receive approval and make the requested changes, I consider that interview complete. I have just completed my first full cycle. In gratitude for their time…

Welcome to Women of the Way 2011

I am in the process of writing a book about the interesting women I met while trekking over 500 miles on the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. I started walking the Camino with a climb over the Pyrenees, headed west over mountains, plateaus, rises and dips, rocky and smooth trails, until reaching my destination…
