This Just In: Writers’ Platform Building Crusade

Crusade I just found out about a project called the Writers’ Platform Building Crusade.  It is the brainchild of Rachel Harrie, and you can learn all about it here.  It is designed to link together writers, bloggers, and authors, at any stage of their careers, in order to support each other and help build platforms.  Participating in the Crusade will help you build traffic, meet other writers, build you online platform and assist others to build theirs.  Plus, it will be a lot of fun.

The Crusade runs from now through April, and what it entails is signing up, and then following the other Crusaders.  Following means subscribing to their blogs, reading their posts, tweeting them, and commenting, of course.

I’m excited because one of the best things about blogging is meeting other bloggers.  And the list of those who’ve already signed up for the Crusade is inspiring.  So I’m going to spend this weekend investigating, reading and commenting on their blogs.  Very cool!

See you around the Crusade!

Hi Charlotte, lovely to meet you. Welcome on board the Crusade!


Charlotte Dixon

Thanks are due to you for starting the Crusade and handling all the details of it, Rachel. I think its going to be a great way to meet some like-minded writers.

What a terrific idea! So many authors find building a platform intimidating, and this takes one of the big scare factors out. Genius!

Charlotte Dixon

Isn’t it great, Jill? All thanks are due to Rachel, who must be spending hours organizing it all. I so appreciate her–and you, for stopping by!

Heather Hellmann

Hi Charlotte,

I think you did pop into my site a little while ago – nice to see you’ve joined the Crusade. And I’ll have fun looking through your site; lots of very interesting posts!

Hi Adina, Your name was very familiar–a beautiful name and not a common one, either! I’m very excited about the Crusade, and thanks for the compliment.
