I've Joined the Crusade Again!

You may remember last year when I participated in Rachael Harrie's "Writers' Platform Building Crusade."  It was so much fun and so helpful, that I've taken up the banner again for her second crusade!

Rachael had the brilliant idea of getting writers to support each other's blogging efforts.  Last time, 55 writers signed up and we participated in challenges, promoted each other's blogs, visited those blogs, commented on those blogs, and many of us became friends.  I admit I wasn't as good about checking out blogs toward the end of the crusade, but I got a little overwhelmed.  This year Rachael has thought of that and will breaking people into smaller groups (although large group participation is encouraged as well).  But this time, if you want to get to know more picture book writers, you can be in a picture book group.  Or YA writers in a YA group and so on.

But before I get carried away, you have to sign up!  If you are a blogger/writer, consider joining this great "pay it forward" movement.

Click here and check it out!  C'mon!  All the cool kids are doing it.  And me too!  Ha!

(My "Weekend Recommendation" will be back next weekend!)

  1. Great that you're doing it again, Megan. I jumped back on the bandwagon, too! :) I'm especially excited for the challenges, they were so fun last time!

    And no worries, last Crusade I began to slack with the comments and such as time went on, but I'm determined to be better this time around. New year = blog resolutions, right? :)

  13. Hi fellow crusader! I actually think I have my profile set up right instead of sending people to my blank/old blog which makes me look like such a loser :(
