If you participate in Rachael's Platform-Building Campaign, you know what I mean.
She's a YA horror writer — writing and blogging like many of us, but she takes it a step further.
The third platform building campaign is winding down. I participated more fully in the first month, but recent travels sidetracked me. I've met dozens of new writers through the campaign and found really awesome blogs to follow.
The campaign allows participants to sign up in their genres. Mix and mingle with those in their group, as well as other campaigners. You visit other blogs. Other bloggers visit you. You participate in really cool writing challenges and BAM — you've built up your network. I considered writing this following the third campaign challenge, but my gratitude to Rachael might get lost in the rules.
Here's a link on the Writers' Platform-Building Campaign.
Rachael has many other irons in the fire, too.
- She helped raise money for the Save the Children's emergency relief fund following the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan through Write Hope.
- Her current work in progress is From the Other Side.
- She shares her writing posts on her blog. I like this one called Seven writing tips I can't live without.
- Need help to organize all the new blogs she introduces you too? She offers tips on how to organized your Google Reader.
