Author Success Story: Blogging on the Huffington Post

Here's another author success story, with Marilyn Wedge talking about getting her article accepted for The Huffington Post:

One thing that worked for me was to buy John Kremer's "15,000 Eyeballs Program" and follow the directions. Here’s why. I never would have thought of becoming a blogger for The Huffington Post.

I admire the Huffington Post and read it often, but to be a blogger simply did not cross my mind. Yet there it was, right in John's program, “Lesson 2: Write a blog for the Huffington Post."

I was so interested in this, that I skipped Lesson 1. What have I got to lose? I asked myself. He makes it sound so simple. So I followed John’s directions and wrote the best article I could muster. And it was accepted. You could have knocked me over with a feather.

My book, Suffer the Children: The Case Against Labeling and Medicating and an Effective Alternative, was published two weeks ago. I cannot say for certain that blogging has drawn attention to the book, but I imagine it hasn’t hurt either.

I am a family therapist with twenty years of experience helping children and teens. I wrote this book to offer parents an alternative to medicating their children. The book is easy for parents to read and offers safe, effective solutions for a wide spectrum of childhood woes such as school problems, behavior problems, depression, and anxiety.
