I decided the Campaign was something I wanted to do when I read "The Campaigners are all people 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."
I believe in supporting others, and really appreciate it when people are supportive of me. I've never been one for forcing myself on people, and the whole concept of platform building has always been a little scary. The idea of mutual support and community building warms my social worker heart, and makes me feel a whole lot better about the process of platform building.
Plus, the Campaign is highly recommended on the blogs of several of the people I have become acquainted with through other means (David Powers King, Mark Koopmans, Nick Hight). I am looking forward to the start of the Campaign, the challenges and getting to know like-minded bloggers! If you want to join in, head over to Rach Writes, and sign up. The list will close on Wednesday, February 15th, so be sure to get over before then!
Besides that, I have the "It's Getting Hot in Here" Blog Hop on Valentines day. I think you can still join up over at Cassie Mae's Reading, Writing and Lovin It. She and Hope Roberson are co-hosts. There's a ton of people participating and it should be a whole lot of fun.
You also may have noticed a new Blog Hop badge over there ---> in the margin. It's Mark Koopmans "Got Green?" Blog Hop! The linky list will officially open from March 12 to March 16, then on the 17th (St. Patrick's Day) we all share what St. Patrick's day means to us - any traditions, foods, memories or future plans of Ireland. The total word count is 333 words, and there are prizes involved, so head over there on March 12th for some good old "Oirish" fun.
Because of all the fun blog activities, I am finding that I am not exactly paying that much attention to writing fiction, or editing. So, once I post this post, I am going black for the weekend, and am going to be focused on editing, and doing a little creative writing. I don't dare get on the computer, or I will easily spend several hours socializing by blog hopping, and tweeting. So, I will see you all on Sunday night at the earliest! Have a great weekend!
