  13. From Claire Hennessy at Crazy California Claire: Who knows about Scribd? I am doing a blog all about what it is and how it can help writers (whether published or not) gain a bigger platform and get people reading their work. For example, I just uploaded my entry to the Third Challenge and in less than 2 days it has had over 3,000 reads. It is an excellent resource with a fabulous and supportive community of writers. Also, once I hit 100 followers I will randomly pick someone to walk them through this process step by step, and help them meet the right people. The details are here
