Fourth Writers' Platform-Building Campaign

Once again it's time for Rach Harrie's Writers' Platform-Building Campaign. This is the short version which will run from February 6, 2012 to March 17, 2012. 

It's easy to sign up. Just CLICK HERE and fill out the form. Then to sign up for specific genre groups and see the lists of campaigners, CLICK HERE.

Participating in this campaign is an excellent way to make contact with other writers and to build your following. Just visit and comment on as many blogs as you can, and they will return your visit. If you are a new blogger, this is the best way to get followers. I got over 100 followers just by participating last August! Generally, if you follow someone, they'll follow you back.

You will meet a lot of awesome writers and bloggers who are at various stages of the writing process, from beginning writers all the way to published writers. The more bloggers you follow, the more access you will have to just about anything you want to know about writing, publishing and editing.

I encourage you to join in the fun. You won't get better support and encouragement anywhere else. Plus, there are contests and prizes!

Here are some of the Key Dates:
  • This Fourth Campaign will be a mini-Campaign, and will run from today until Saturday, March 17, 2012.
  • The List of Campaigners will close on Wednesday, February 15th, so make sure you sign up before then.
  • The First Campaigner Challenge will begin on Monday, February 20th and end on Saturday, February 25th.
  • The Second Campaigner Challenge will begin on Monday, March 5th and end on Saturday, March 10th.
I hope to see you on the campaign trail!

Alex, I know what you mean. It's very time consuming, but thankfully the 4th platform campaign is a shorter version. Rach is doing the longer version in August and I'll try to do that one, too. But I should be working!

Sarah, we probably did meet during the last campaign - and I'm so glad!

Michelle, I did notice we were in the same group! I signed up for about 5 groups, lol. I hope I can keep up!

Hi Natasha, we're going to have loads of fun. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Melanie, cool - I can't wait for the first challenge and to read everyone's entries!

Lissa, it's amazing we didn't meet during the last campaign! I'm glad we met this time - I'll stop by soon.
