Third Writers’ Platform Building Campaign

Rachael Harrie has put together another fantastic campaign: Third Writers’ Platform Building Campaign. It’s a great way to make real connections with like-minded people. I took part in one earlier in the year and I met so many more new bloggers, struggling writers, published authors.

The campaign runs from August 22nd until October 31st. The list closes on August 31st, so you have a week to sign up.

--
The Write Advice is a fantastic new Facebook community page organised by Laura Barnes. It is designed to bring together a collection of bloggers who offer great writing advice.
“I hope for this to be an excellent source for beginning writers, or beginning writer researchers, a sort-of one-stop-shop.”
It’s worth checking out.

What online initiatives or sites have given you support as a writer?Are you signing up to the campaign?

  2. If I wasn't just so overwhelmed now! Think I have a handle on what's going to happen with the Insecure Writer's Support group though.
    And Lynda, thank you so much for featuring my next book! Wow, so awesome to come here and see it.

  8. I have given it a lot of thought and I am not signing up for the campaign at this time.

    I really need to focus less on online media and more on writing offline this fall.

  15. I've signed up, and this is my first one. I'm excited, but I was nervous as well. I was so pleased to see you and a few others in my group. It felt like seeing old friends in a new class :) Of course, now I've been round all the other blogs I'm wondering what I was ever nervous about!

  20. I'm thinking about signing up. I tend to hesitate signing up for these things, because I worry I won't blog enough to participate or that I'll miss important dates.

  27. I'm busy and not doing this campaign, but I certainly enjoyed the last one, and meeting new writers! I like Janice Hardy's The Other Side of the Story blog. VERY informative stuff about nitty-gritty how-to's of writing a novel.

  34. In the campaign :) Nice to meet you! I love your blog header. It's gorgeous.

  35. I signed up for the campaign. I've already met a lot of nice folks. Slowly making my way through the list of participants.
    The Writer Unboxed blog has helped me a lot. I signed up for the FB group and have enjoyed the folks there and the discussion about craft, publishing and writerly things.

  36. WELCOME to all the newcomers and Campaigners. It's fantastic to see you all here and I appreciate every comment. Looking forward to getting to know more writers.

    Christine, the last one was brilliant.

    Alex, ha, I've been meaning to put it up for some time now and only recently got the chance to get some basic maintenance done. I'm so looking forward to the release of CassaFire.

    Old Kitty, verily

    Dezzy, shame I can't lay claim to it. It was designed by JYS at Writerly Pensheep.

    Suze, I fully support your decision. First and foremost, it's important to write.

    Sarah, oddly enough I can relate to that nervousness. Hehehe.

  37. Aldrea, that's because we are special ;)

    Medeia, sign up! It's so worth it. You won't regret it and you don't have to take part in the challenges if you don't want to.

    Rachael, thanks again for organising this marvellous campaign.

    Clarissa, It's up to you, but from my experience last time, it was so worth it.

    Carol, thanks for the tip!

    Lady, yep, I'm noticing that as well. I think Blogger is struggling. I've found if you refresh the page it usually works.

    Cynthia, I have even less time than I did last time, but I didn't want to miss out.

    Angela, Thanks. The header was designed and created by Dezmond at HollywoodSpy.

    Stacy, I'll have to check out that blog. Thanks.

  40. I do not belong to a group on or offline… I use my blog to work out some issues. One day I might progress to partners or a critic group, but for now I am happy with my station.

    Thx for your support.

  42. It sounds like a funtastic thing to do! I've been wondering about it. I should look into it and see if I "qualify". :)

  52. Hi Lynda. This is my first time in joining the campaign and liking it so far. I'm in a number of different groups, which can be quite daunting, but I aim to get around to everyone. You're in my Aussie/NZ group. I'm looking forward to seeing more of you during the campaign.
