Bloggiesta was a three-day event by and for book bloggers (although all, including writers, are welcome) to improve their blogs and other social media interactions. See the finish line post for links to what bloggers did during their Bloggiesta and the dates for our next party in September: Bloggiesta: The Finish Line!
The April Platform Challenge is being run by Robert Lee Brewer of Writer’s Digest at his blog My Name Is Not Bob. It’s mostly directed to writers who get advice that the task of selling a book in the modern world requires a large social media platform. But, I’m pretty sure he won’t kick you out if you want to build your platform to get more readers for your book blog. The format is a small task a day (some of which you’ve probably already completed), so even though we’re on the 5th day of April, you could easily catch up if you want to start today. Here’s Day 1: April Platform Challenge: Day 1.
So far, for the April Platform challenge, I’ve revisited my goals, tweaked my Facebook profile, and changed my Twitter picture from a logo to my photo. I kind of miss my purple J, but I’ll stick with the head shot for the moment. Today’s task, April Platform Challenge: Day 5, is to start a blog. Check!
So, here’s my invitation to my book blogger peeps looking for a follow-up to Bloggiesta to join the April Platform Challenge. And, an invitation to the writing folks who may find my blog this month due to the April Platform challenge to check out Bloggiesta and join the party in September — that should be perfect timing for revisiting the goals and analyzing the projects that you start this month.
