Even Virtual Tour Plans Change

One characteristic required for being a successful solopreneur (and person) is being flexible when things don’t go as planned – and to be okay with it. The interview scheduled for today has been moved to Friday. No problem. This means I simply move the Reader’s Corner scheduled for Friday to Monday. Stay tuned for details!

Liz posted part three of our interview, in which I share how I learned how to write.

Tomorrow I am taking a day off from my virtual book tour to prepare for the Social Planning and Research Council of British Columbia (SPARC BC) Board meeting on Friday evening and all-day Saturday. Since I’m the Treasurer, I figure I had better take some time to review the financial statements and to prepare my report!

A potentially interesting side note: I have been tracking particular stats during my virtual book tour. When I began this adventure on January 22nd, this blog still had “wet paint” signs up and my Technorati ranking was 1,626,267 with 2 links from 1 blog. For what it’s worth, my current ranking is 118,353 with 98 links from 33 blogs. (The lower the number, the higher the ranking.)

When embarking on this eight-week virtual book tour adventure, I had no clue what to expect, and, therefore, intentionally did not set any goals (except to sell a lot of books!). I am amazed at dramatic increase in my Technorati ranking. With two weeks still to go, I am wondering if I can break through the top 100,000. Do I dare set that as a goal?

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

That’s cool I’ve never heard of a virtual tour.
