Platform-Building Campaign

Rachel Harrie's 3rd writer's platform building campaign started today. "What's that?" I hear you ask. In Rach's own words...
Basically, the Campaign is a way to link those of us in the writing community together with the aim of helping to build our online platforms. The Campaigners 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.
The window for joining is from today up until August 31st, and the campaign runs through to October 31st. This is my first time as a campaigner, but it looks like a great way to network and help other writers.  See you there!

J A Bennett and L:
Hello, welcome and thanks for popping over to my blog :o)

Sarah:
Hello and thank you for the advice. I've been trying to do this all day and it didn't work, but I just tried it again, (exactly the same way after you confirmed I'd been doing it right) - and hey presto - it worked!

I know, I know, I obviously messed it up somehow before, but I'm just happy it's there now.

Kerri and Wordy:

Hi! Welcome to my blog. It's good to meet my fellow campaigners! I've been busy making a mess of things... on the linky thing - I selected a picture 'from the web' which linked to my Amazon page - so now it looks like I'm trying to do a 'hard-sell' to my fellow campaigners - doh! I've managed to add a 2nd thumbnail now, so I hope everyone manages to forgive the first one!

Am off to check out your blogs now :o)

Hi and welcome, Jen, Christine, J, Lynda and Shannon. I love waking up and seeing lots of new comment on my blog! I'm in England and I think most of my visitors are from the US, or other parts of the World, (or doing the night shift in UK!!).

Amanda Milner said...

Hi Amanda, just stopping by to say you have a great name. ;) Jk
I look forward to getting to know you throught the Campaign!
I've been in a major writing slump this summer too. I'm hoping with the kids starting school this week and the Campaign getting started as well I'll be back in the game. ;)
That is, of course, if I don't get sucked into starting at that Magic Picture bellow this post! Lol!

Amanda Leigh Cowley said...

Hi, Amanda - yep great name ;o) and good to meet you.

Hope you didn't get too distracted with the magic eye - I'm spending way too much time finding new ones and staring at them!

I'm sure once we're back in the normal routine, writing inspiration will hit us again!

F.E. Sewell said...

Hi Amanda, I'm in your UF group - looking forward to getting to know you.

Amanda Leigh Cowley said...

Hi FE Sewell, good to meet you! Don't get too distracted with those magic eyes... :o)
