Have you heard of the Platform-Builders Campaign? I have seen bloggers promoting it all over the web this past week. When I got over to the website to read more about it I was even more excited. What a great way to build your platform and get to know more authors that write the same genre(s) as you. If you want to look into it, be sure to check out Rachel’s Blog for more details (and because it’s a great blog). If you are interested, the deadline to sign up is Aug 31st, so be quick.
Here’s Rachel’s blurb on her/our campaign:
“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.”
For my new blogging buddies… here is a little bit about me:
I love to write! I am just feeling my way into different genres in children’s books and have been working on three fiction picture book manuscripts about endangered animals across the continents. I have also just finished a first draft in my chapter book series. At this rate I hope to be moving onto YA by the end of 2012! Just kidding, but who knows? I am an enthusiastic member of SCBWI as well. I blog mostly about multicultural books and stories about animals, but also on random stuff as the muse takes me, including a poem here and there.
So if you’re a new follower… please share something about yourself!
