Second Writers’ Platform-Building Crusade

Because of the overwhelming response I've had to my Second Crusade, I’m afraid I won’t be taking on any more Crusaders. Keep an eye out for my Third Crusade, I'd love to have you on board.

There are so many of us out there. Aspiring authors, bloggers (whether established or beginning), industry peeps, even published authors, all of whom 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 all do with a bit of support.

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 so my Writers’ Platform-Building Crusade was born.

What is the Crusade?

Basically, the Crusade is a way to link those within the writing community together with the aim of helping to build our online platforms. The Crusaders are all bloggers in a similar position, who genuinely want to pay it forward, make connections and friends within the writing community, and help build each others' online platforms while at the same time building theirs.

Last year (my First Crusade) we had 55 Crusaders, many of whom have become great blogging friends. We saw our followers skyrocket and the comments on our posts increase, and had fun taking part in Crusade Challenges as well (kartofflepuffer anyone???).

I’ll list your names and blogs on my List of Crusaders page so you can keep in touch with the other Crusaders. And you’ll have a list of bloggers in the same position as you, who genuinely want to help you succeed. You can visit their blogs, follow along, 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.

Length of the Crusade

This Crusade will run from February 1st to April 30th, though I’ll be calling additional Crusades in the future. You’re very welcome to keep on Crusading after my official organization ends on April 30th.

How to join?

If you’d like to join, here’s what you’ll need to do:
  1. follow me if you haven't already, so you can keep in touch with all the Crusade Biz(ness) (posted on Fridays) and take part in Crusade Challenges etc
  2. comment on this post, to let the other Crusaders know you’ll be coming on board
  3. blog about the Crusade to help spread the word (include a link to this post and encourage your followers to join)
  4. if you’re on Twitter, tweet about the Crusade and include a link to this post. I'm @RachaelHarrie if you want to follow me in the Twitterverse
  5. pop a link to this post on Facebook (if you’re a Facebook fan)
  6. AND fill out this form.
After you’ve joined

Once you’ve joined the Crusade:
  1. keep an eye on my List of Crusaders page (so you can meet any new Crusaders)
  2. follow all the other Crusaders
  3. pop round and introduce yourself to all the Crusaders in your Crusade Group. If you wish, pop round to some or all of the other Crusaders and introduce yourself as well
  4. put a Crusade button on your sidebar and link it back to my Writers' Platform-Building Crusade page at the top of Rach Writes... (I use the above picture for all my Crusade stuff if you want to use that one too)
  5. keep an eye out for posts by other Crusaders (and particularly those in your Crusade Group) and do your best to comment on as many as you can, as often as you can. This is one of the key ways Crusaders will help each other out and pay it forward
  6. also consider following your fellow Crusaders on Twitter and liking them on Facebook, mentioning their blog posts and re-tweeting their tweets, and otherwise supporting them
  7. join in my Crusader Challenges if you wish (I'm hoping to run one every second or third Friday). It's a great way to get to know the other Crusaders and have fun at the same time.
Can't wait to have you on board!

Rach

WOW!!! I (think) I'm number one! Sweet!

I'm so excited to visit other blogs and get to meet new people with new ideas, hopeful make a few writing friends as well along the way.

The more support we give and get, all the better. That's what it's all about.

Thanks for putting this together.

Fav Quote--
"The only difference between schizophrenics and writers is that schizophrenics take medication to silence the voices in their heads. Writers, on the other hand, write down everything those voices tell them and then try and sell it."

Adina West said...

I'm in! :-) Looking forward to meeting my Crusade group when it all gets happening.

www.adinawest.blogspot.com

And I love Angela's quote above. Maybe the only way we CAN silence the voices is by writing it all down. Writerly catharsis...

Rachel Morgan said...

I'm so there!!

Off to do the tweeting, Facebooking thing... Will get it onto my blog this weekend...

Hurray for the second Crusade!

And I like Angela's fav quote ;-)

chenoafawn said...

I'll join the Crusade (always wanted my own chainmail).

Aw I really wanted to join the crusade this time. But it clashes with Lee's A-Z challenge in April.

Maybe next time around.

Heather Hellmann said...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Wish it didn't coincide with the A to Z Challenge!

E.J. Wesley said...

What a great idea, Rachael! I've never done one of these before, but count me in for sure. I'll post about it in my next, and I'm not currently doing the TwitBook thing. Here's my blog url:

http://the-open-vein-ejwesley.blogspot.com/

Might I suggest that folks who do Crusade related blog posts be sure to mention it in the title? Like many others, I use a reader to keep up with blogs and I don't want to miss any posts by fellow Crusaders!

Jess said...

I'm in! Can't wait to connect with fellow Crusaders :)

L.A. Colvin said...

I'm sick but crawled out of bed and logged on just long enough to get here and put my name in. I'm doing the A-Z blogfest too but I think we can do both. Will blog and stuff when my medicine induced fog lifts a little.

Hart Johnson said...

I'm in! ready to fly!

salarsenッ said...

Rachael, I remember seeing this last year but was so new I was skittish. Not so much anymore. I'm in!! Will pass on the word on all my sites. Thanks so much. Looking forward to getting to know you better and everyone else who's participating!

Summer Ross said...

It sounds like a terrific idea. I would like to be apart of it. I'll post about next week!

Ann said...

I would love to join the crusade. I am in great need of help!!! I have posted a link on Facebook. Will put this on my sidebar too.

Susan Schreyer said...

Excellent idea! Many thanks for organizing this!

Rachael Harrie said...

Hey guys, it's fantastic to see so many of you coming on board!!! Woot, this is going to be an awesome Crusade.

Please don't forget to fill out the form so I can add you to the List of Crusaders.

I'm planning on doing the A-Z Blogging Challenge as well, so I'm hoping to fit both Crusading and the Challenge into April. But I'm sure the other Crusaders would understand if you're not as active in April, given the Challenge is all about platform-building too :) And there are two full months before then for you to get Crusading.

Hugs,

Rach

Dominic de Mattos said...

*Jumps on board and waves to fellow crusaders!*

Big smiles to be here!

Great idea Rach - I saw various crusading buttons from the first one and didn't know what they meant - now I do!

Danette said...

I read about this on Michael's blog 'On Writing' and as I believe in supporting the writing community it sounded worthwhile so I think I'll give this a go.

Rachael Harrie said...

Wow, I'm totally blown away by the interest you're all showing in my Crusade!!! I LOVE the Crusading vibe we've already got going around the blogosphere, even though the Second Crusade is still in its early days. So far we've got 92 people who've officially signed up by filling out the form, plus some others who are yet to do that step (and quite likely more who'll join over the coming weeks). This is going to be one AWESOME event :)

Hugs to you all,

Rach

Tracy said...

Eep! I came in so I could start harrassing . . . erm, following other crusaders. Only to realize, while I filled out the form, I never actually left a comment here.

*slaps forehead*

Sadly, this sort of scatteredness is nothing new for my brain.

Wow! What a great idea. Thanks for doing it. I can't wait to connect with other writers in my genre. Currently most of the people I follow are YA something or other, and few that are sci fi. I'd love more sci fi friends!

Rachael Harrie said...

Um...*checks list*...we now have 134 Crusaders who've officially come on board!!! Completely awesome, fantastic, splendid, AND fabulous :)

For those of you who haven't filled out the form yet, get in quick, cause I'm putting up the List of Crusaders on Friday or Saturday, and it might take me a while to add additional names to it after that.

I'm so excited by this Crusade, and I've loved meeting most of you guys on your blogs. More visits still to come ;)

Hugs,

Rach

kar_took said...

Hi everybody,

I'm sneaking in my Crusade post and filling out the form at work, so I'm on board again this year. I had a great time with he first Crusade and I'm looking forward to seeing who is in my group.

Patricia A. Timms said...

I was thinking that maybe I couldn't do it this time around because some overwhelming things have come up for my family this year, but I already feel left out.

I had so much fun the first time and made so many great new friends (you know their friends when you can't get around to all of them all the time but they're so friendly when you finally do stop by their blogs and comment. And they come to my blog even when I can't always make it to theirs).

Count me in, again. I will fill out the form and post about it soon.

In the meantime, I hope you're well and that your moving along steadily in your writing.

anny cook said...

Okay, I'm in! Don't know what I'm doing, but here I am.

subservient-husband said...

Hello,

I am a man who is trying to put together a non-ficion account of living in a matriarchal marriage. Is that outside the scope?

Rachael Harrie said...

@subservient-husband, I'm afraid we have very few non-fiction writers participating in this Crusade, and not enough to put together a non-fiction group. Given that, I think this may not be the best fit for you. Wishing you the best of luck with your account.

Rach

Erin said...

Rachael - Just wanted to let you know that I did blog about the Crusade today, so hopefully I'm all offical and whatnot now. =) Thanks again for organizing this!
