Helen's Hosting a Special Guest! And the Crusade...

Today over at Helen Ginger’s Straight From Hel is a very special guest who is near and dear to my heart. Please go welcome him to the blogging world, as this is his first ever appearance!


And tune in Thursday for a segment called “Booksignings Stink!” from Christee Atwood.

Second Writers’ Platform-Building Crusade

Sponsored by Rachael Harrie

What is the Crusade?

Basically, the Crusade is a way to link those within the writing community together with the aim of helping to build our online platforms. The Crusaders 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.

Length of the Crusade

This Crusade will run from February 1st to April 30th, though I’ll be calling additional Crusades in the future. You’re very welcome to keep on Crusading after my official organization ends on April 30th.

The Crusade's doing wonders for my Blog! I think I'm already following Hel, I'll have to stop by and see. And someone who isn't in on the wonders of Blogging? HE MUST BE TOLD!!!

Will, he's not an online person!

*Waving hello to a fellow Crusader*

We really need some sort of secret handshake! :)

Angela Felsted said...

Definitely need to check it out.

Terrific! I've always been a fan of Craig's artwork. People here might want to have a look at his dA gallery if they haven't already: http://3.ly/fKgd

It was great reading the interview with Craig, and I laughed my ass off at the 'Steve's Bad Day' video too :D A great introduction to the blogosphere! I'll definitely take a look at the Crusade – a few weeks being out of sorts with this move has meant I've been somewhat lacking in blog participation. This will get me back into the game. Thanks :D

Gosh, I really need to check out this Crusade! I keep hearing so much about it.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

DL, a secret virtual handshake?

Hi Mike! That was cool of you to post the link. Only some of his work is on his website.

Jamie, it took him eight months to complete Steve's Bad Day, but it turned out so well. We had fun doing the voices, too.

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

Sounds interesting. I'll check it out.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I've already been to Helen's site - that's cool!

The Old Silly said...

Ok will do!

Jemi Fraser said...

I really have to get over to the Crusade - it seems everywhere I go, it's the topic of conversation!

I'm off to Helen's!

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

I haven't heard of the Crusade before. Must take a look. Thanks.

Michelle Merrill said...

Hey there Crusader! Just wanted to stop by and say hi :)

VR Barkowski said...

I have no idea what to expect, this is my first Crusade, but it sounds amazing. Can't wait until we're in full launch. Now, it's off to Helen's blog with me...

India Drummond said...

Oh! I hadn't heard of the crusade idea. Will definitely have to check this out! Thanks for passing the word on it.

LOVED your cover art for Circle of Friends, by the way... I saw it for the first time at Helen's blog earlier today.
