It will be like looking into the dream diary of the artists.

DREAMING 2.0: HOW BLOGGING CAN LEVERAGE YOUR DREAM BUSINESS
by Ryan Hurd

Maybe you are a dream researcher, author, or professional dream worker who is frustrated about how difficult it is to make money in the field of dream studies. Especially now that the economy is weak, there may be a voice in your head that says, “I can’t afford to invest in my dream business right now. And nobody has the extra income for my services anyway.” Ignore it! That voice is a hangover from the 20th century.

Actually, the world needs our expertise more than ever. In recessions, it is true that a much of the public drown their anxieties through distraction (which is why Hollywood always booms during dustbowls) but another group of people are seeking to alleviate their suffering through self-growth and self-exploration -- especially if they suddenly have more time on their hands.

These people are online, actively looking for solutions, and asking Google the Oracle for help. This is our market, and they need us.

So one of the easiest, effective, and most fun ways to build your dream-related business is by having a blog. The “web-log” has come a long way in ten years, and it is easier than ever to get started. In fact, you can have a blog up and running today, in less than an hour.

Top 5 reasons to Blog for Business

1. Blogs greatly expand the number of visitors to your website by creating hundreds of opportunities to rank in the search engines for specific niche topics.

2. Blogging attracts media sources that can link to your site and even provide interview and freelance writing opportunities.

3. Blogging allows you to stay close to the pulse of public opinion. Through dialogue, you can even find new ways to attract clients as your readers share their fears, experiences, and aspirations.

4. Blogging clarifies your own thoughts and ideas — it is a great way for writers to stay limber between books. Also a great way to test out all those unpublished pieces that have never seen the light of day.

5. Blogging builds trust by providing useful and free information about your topic. If you are a consultant, blogging can lead the way to new clients. If you are an author, blogging can increase your book sales. If you are a dream researcher, blogging can be another way to collect dream reports and demographic information.

My Two Favorite Blogging Services

It is easier than ever to get started blogging. There are dozens of services, but here are my top two software choices for beginners.

First, blogger.com is a free blog package owned and hosted by Google. Design is purely about picking your favorite colors. They also make it easy to switch the content over to your own hosted blog later on if you want to expand your business.
http://blogger.com

Second, Wordpress.com is an easy alternative. Like blogger.com, the blog can be hosted for free on their servers, or you can set up the software on your own url. The best part is that Wordpress has tons of support; in fact, they just released http://www.wordpress.tv that contains dozens of video tutorials on how to get started with blogging.
http://wordpress.com

A Few Inspiring Dream Blogs
I want to conclude with a few dream-related blogs that may inspire you to get started spreading your message on-line. First, take a look at IASD member, Robert Waggoner’s innovative blog called “Lucid Advice.” Waggoner uses a blog format to publish questions and answers about lucid dreaming. He is growing his business, refreshing his website, and promoting his new book all at the same time.
http://lucidadvice.com

Here’s another keeper: “The Oneironauticum.” Run by IASD member Jennifer Dumpert, this blog documents the incubation experiments of a group of dream explorers. The blog also complements Dumpert’s innovative “psychogeography” project in San Francisco, in which she maps dreams onto the actual locales that inspired them in her neighborhood.
View Here

Another of my favorite dream blogs is “From the Couch,” by psychotherapist (and IASD member) Laura Lefelar. The blog content hovers around dream symbols and the basics of dream work with a focus on improving relationships. Once on the blog, interested visitors can click through to Laura’s professional counseling website. Savvy!
http://dreamingsymbols.blogspot.com

And lastly, you might get lost in this blog called “The Absent Narrative.” The author is a student interested in literature, mythology, and dreams. He uses this fascinating blog to help him process everything he is learning, and meanwhile connect with similar souls on the Internet.
http://absentnarrative.blogspot.com

This is just the tip of the iceberg, of course. Blogging has proved that it is more than a fad, and it is quickly merging with journalism too. The next generation of dream experts will be found online, and because everyone is an expert on their own dreams, my advice is to start blogging about your passion today!

Ryan Hurd is an Internet consultant and freelance writer. He maintains the dream research blog: http://dreamstudies.org

Stanley KrippnerStanley Krippner, PhD Keynote Address: “Everyone Who Dreams Partakes of Shamanism.” Dr. Krippner will explain how early shamans emerged to negotiate the shift between worlds and to interpret the images that occur in dreams. He will explore the history of dreamwork up to the present and discuss the artwork of Rob Van de Horst.

Stanley Krippner, PhD, is professor of psychology at Saybrook Graduate School and co-director of the Dream Studies Certificate Program. A former president of IASD, and recipient of its Lifetime Achievement Award, he is co-author of Dream Telepathy, Extraordinary Dreams, and Personal Mythology, and Dreamworking. He is also the editor of Dreamtime and Dreamwork and co-editor of Dreamscaping, Healing Tales, and Healing Stories. His website is http://stanleykrippner.weebly.com/

Barbara TedlockBarbara Tedlock, PhD Keynote Address: “The Shamanic Power and Spirituality of Dreaming.” Dr. Tedlock will describe Ojibwe, Huichol, Mayan, and Shipibo visionary dreaming practices and show art works created by shaman-dreamers from these and other traditions.

Barbara Tedlock, PhD is Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where she teaches courses in psychological anthropology, religion, and the arts, as well as holistic health, dream interpretation, and healing.

Forthcoming is Healing Medicine: Ancient Wisdom in Modern Healthcare and The Power, Poetics, and Spirituality of Dreaming. Her website is http://mayasites.com/btedlock.html

Robert MossRobert Moss – Invited Presenter: “The Secret History of Dreaming.” Mr. Moss will explain how dreams throughout history have aided the dreamer in waking life. He’ll discuss the new discipline called “dream archeology” and why humans need the skills of both shamans, scholars and detectives to fathom the past and to prepare for the changes that are coming in the future history of our world.

Robert Moss is the pioneer of Active Dreaming, an original synthesis of shamanism and modern dreamwork. Born in Australia, he survived three near-death experiences in childhood and first learned the ways of a traditional dreaming people through his friendship with Aborigines. He leads popular seminars and trainings all over the world, including a three-year training for teachers of Active Dreaming and a lively online dream school at www.spirituality-health.com . A former lecturer in ancient history at the Australian National University, he is a best-selling novelist, journalist and independent scholar. His many books on dreaming and imagination include Conscious Dreaming, Dreamgates, The Three "Only" Things: Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence and Imagination and The Secret History of Dreaming (New World Library, January 2009). His website is www.mossdreams.com

MEMBERSHIP NEWS February 2009

SPOTLIGHT on Michigan, USA
By Jeff Vovillia

Since the Montreal conference I’ve been motivated to start a dream group here in mid-Michigan. I’ve been able to recruit interested friends and have even gained some interested community members through flyers. We are currently meeting twice a month and the group seems to be getting quite good at the process. I am very excited to see their growth and am glad to inspire non-dreamers to be avid dreamers.

In other news, I’ve recently been contacted by a reporter at the CBS affiliate in the Kalamazoo/Grand Rapids area. He is doing a four-part series on dream interpretation and asked if I would be the “expert” in the area. I hold a B.S. in psychology and have been an IASD member since 2007. I don’t hold any degree directly related to dreams but I believe I may be one of the most experienced in the area. I plan to discuss the dream group process as set by Ullman and Taylor while also discussing a lot of Jung’s theories and discoveries about the dream world. In addition I hope to add some information about lucid dreaming as that has always been an interest of mine. I will let IASD know when the process is complete and hopefully be able to provide a copy of the series to the association.

If anyone in the Southwest Michigan area is interested in participating in the dream interpretation series please let me know and I will make sure you get in contact with the reporter.

I’m looking forward to the conference in Chicago and hope to be a big part of this region’s promotional efforts. Happy Dreaming!!

Comments from IASD Membership Chair

Jeff Vovillia’s story about his dream group and growing activity in Michigan is a great example of how a local dream community can develop and include both active dreamers and inspire non-dreamers (or we might say, non-recallers). And, as activity increases so does interest, including that of the media.

Even as Jeff invites others in Southwest Michigan to get involved I would like to encourage all of you, members around the world, to activate your own part of the worldwide dream web and amplify IASD. As we get closer to the annual IASD Conference in Chicago this year, be dream ambassadors wherever you live by inviting your colleagues, friends, and relatives to join and attend our events. Not only will you benefit from such initiatives as Jeff has, but you will benefit all of IASD as well. Thanks Jeff, and thanks to all of you for your membership and activities that make our organization so vital.

A MESSAGE FROM THE NOMINATING
COMMITTEE CHAIR


Dear IASD members,

IASD's Nominating Committee has asked me to write and solicit input from IASD members regarding possible nominations for the IASD Board. If you would like to propose someone to the Nominating Committee, please send his or her name in a private email to Robert Waggoner at robwaggoner@aol.com

Each year IASD creates a slate of Board candidates to be voted upon by the members for a three year term. IASD is looking for a diverse mix of committed members, who understand IASD’s mission and are willing to volunteer their time and energy to create a vibrant organization. Board members are expected to attend two meetings at the annual conference and a spring and fall meeting, conducted over the phone. Board members assist IASD in many ways: offering advice and observations about IASD business, serving on committees to promote IASD's efforts, leading new efforts to help IASD grow and voting on motions or proposals that come before the board.

If you know of an IASD member that you would like the Committee to consider, please send me a private email.

Thanks,
Robert Waggoner,
Vice President and Nominating Committee Chair
