SADLY, THE INAUGURAL WRITERS' PLATFORM-BUILDING CRUSADE HAS COME TO AN END. BUT KEEP AN EYE OUT IN EARLY 2011 FOR MY ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE SECOND CRUSADE - HOPE YOU ALL COME ON BOARD!!!
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. We write insightful posts and articles, actively blog within the blogosphere, take part in challenges, competitions, and contests galore.
We have the passion and the drive to make it, but…we could do with a few more followers.
So, I started thinking. What if we link all these people together. What if we create a way to meet people in a similar position, people who genuinely want to help build our online platform while at the same time building theirs. People who want to pay it forward in the spirit of writerly writerness and blogging beautificity (and see it come back to them in turn)!!!
And here it is…
I’m kicking off the Rach Writes… Inaugural Writers’ Platform-Building Crusade.
How cool is that!!!
Let’s work it like this:
- Follow along with my site if you don’t already (I want to build my online platform too of course) :)
- Become a Crusader by leaving a comment to this post (include your blogging name and a link to your blog)
- Write about the Crusade on your blog and link back to this post
- Encourage your followers to come to Rach Writes… and join up (it will help them too!)
- Tweet about the Crusade, including a link to this post (http://bit.ly/9kMySK) and #WPBC1. Encourage re-tweets. I'm @RachaelHarrie if you want to follow me in the Twitterverse too
- Pop it on Facebook
- Generally, spread the word…
And there it is. 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 galore, 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.
Beats poaching any day!!!
I’ve got some Crusade Challenges and Blogfests planned, so let’s see how many people we can get onboard and make this an ongoing thing...
Jump on board the Writers' Platform-Building Crusade. Spread the word. Pay it forward. And have fun with your blogging!!!
