Introducing ‘The Introvert’s Way’ by Sophia Dembling

Travel Blog  •  Eva Holland  •  01.24.13 | 8:21 AM ET

Nearly four years ago, we published Sophia Dembling’s Confessions of an Introverted Traveler on World Hum. The essay was a huge hit: It generated more than 100 comments and became our most-read story of the year. (A follow-up piece, Six Tips for Introverted Travelers, landed second on the most-read list.) It also launched what Dembling calls “the beginning of my career as a professional introvert.” She went on to blog about introversion for Psychology Today, and in December, Perigee published her book on the subject: The Introvert’s Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World.

As a fellow introvert, I couldn’t be more (quietly) thrilled.

Congratulations!  Publishing is exciting.  A goal I am working toward with a middle grade novel.

Seeing your work published is a real thrill.  Travel writers especially have to work very hard to get their content visible amongst sheer volume of online features and review sites.

There are travel focussed content marketing opportunities for those working for both independent writers and those working in the industry and of course the increased popularity of social media that all help to deliver an audience.

Some might call me an introvert. I wouldn’t really say that it’s been the most helpful trait in a work environment. Is it good or bad? If you work with other people, being closed off doesn’t do much I’ve found. In fact I’m trying to break from intro, to extrovert. That said, it looks like a great book. Given the amount of reading I do, consider ebooks. A fairly good best ereader guide might help you as it did help me out. None the less, being an introvert isn’t productive and I speak from experience.

Can you tell me how many page view the article has had since then? Just curious.

Wow, I can’t wait to buy that book at the book store. Congratulations to the author. May she continue writing books that will help introvert people to live a normal life.
