I'm Actually Posting Today!! And I Have a Question About Campaigners

I've missed you all!  Seriously, seriously missed you.  My little guy just last night learned how to crawl with the cast on, so he is not nearly as clingy as he was before.  It helps when he sees a toy and he knows he can get it himself. 

So that means I'm back!! 

I know how excited you must be.  :P

And now that I'm back, I'm coming back in full force!!  And I was wondering what all of you thought about The Writer's Platform-Building Campaign.  Is it fun?  Have you ever done it?  Do you think it's worthwhile to participate? 

The reason I ask is because I'm fairly certain I want to take part, but I don't want the time I spend on it to take away from the support I try to continuously show to other writer friends I've already made (plus my writing time as I'm working on Elemental #2!!!).

So, what do you think?  Are you taking part this time around?  Do you think I could juggle my writing time and my blogging time with the extra effort?

And have you noticed I rarely make decisions without consulting you, dear readers, first? ;)  It just goes to show you how much I value you.  :D


  1. Hey Emily glad you are back and that your little guy is doing okay. As far as the writer's platform building campaign... Hmmm, I'd never heard of it until I read your post. I'm pretty new to the whole blogging thing but it sounds like a good idea. I know that's not very helpful so I'll try to check it out a little more and let you know if I find out anything.

  2. it'll be interesting to see what others advise here! i wonder if i should sign up as well... but jiminey! i already have more blogs i want to visit, but can't stop by every time!
    yikes! :)

  3. I'll have to check that out ... I can't offer any advice as of yet because I'm not sure what it is, exactly. I've seen it mentioned before, but I've never looked closer.

    Glad your little boy is feeling a little better! Poor guy :-(

  4. I've never heard of that campaign before. Right now I can't even keep up with reading many of the blogs from the ROW 80 check-ins. But I like some of the new folks I've met from it. It's been great for me.

    Yea for your little boy. But then he's a smart kid. He gets it from his mom. ;D

  5. I haven't signed up for that. I've got my Labor Day Blog BBQ coming up and after that setting up a blog tour for my new release, so I'm kind of swamped. Plus I'm helping a couple others with their tours. I can never do all that I'd like to online or it gets me out of balance.

  6. Welcome back, Emily! I did the Crusade/Campaign last time, and was glad I did. However, it IS time-consuming if you do it right and make the connections, visiting most/all the blogs as well as doing the participating posts. I'm not doing it this time, for time reasons. Good luck deciding!

  7. Thanks, everyone, for your comments! They were all very helpful!

    Hmm...I think I've decided to sit this one out. I think there's just WAY too much stuff going on right now and I don't want my existing relationships to suffer.

    Ah well, maybe I'll have more time next year. :)


Yay! Comments! Oh, how I do love them! :D
