Writer's Platform Building Crusade - the flag is flying again! (Publication Party next post!)
Over at Rach Writes there is great news for bloggers, the second Writers’ Platform-Building Crusade has started! I joined last year and have been so looking forward to getting behind the flag again!
Rach thought of this concept in 2010. She thought about the fact that there are so many of us out there -aspiring writers, beginner bloggers, industry peeps, even published authors, all who want to build their online platforms. She wanted to bring us all together. As a member of this Crusade, we write insightful posts and articles, actively blog within the blogosphere, take part in challenges, competitions, and contests galore, but mainly we support our fellow crusaders.
So, Rach (Rachael Harrie) links all of us together. This year she has groups so we can follow/comment on like-minded bloggers' posts.
Go to Rach Writes for all the buzz and to join. You’ll have a list of bloggers in the same position as you, who genuinely want to help you succeed. You can visit their sites, follow along with their blogs, leave comments, and share your highs and lows as you journey through the blogosphere and build your online platform. And they'll be doing the same for you. Some of the bloggers I met last year are firm blogging friends (((waves hi))).
Jump on board the Writers' Platform-Building Crusade. Spread the word. Pay it forward. And have fun with your blogging!!!
