I heard from a couple of writing friends about the Third Writers’ Platform-Builder’s Campaign, organized by Rachael of Rach Writes. This is an outstanding opportunity for writers and bloggers to meet, blog, and support each other.
According to Rachael: ”The Campaign is a way to link those of us in the writing community together with the aim of helping to build our online platforms. The Campaigners 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.”
The campaign runs from Aug. 22 – Oct. 31. This is a great opportunity to link with writers in your genre. Go to the link highlighted above for information. The deadline for registration is Aug. 31.
I have no idea what I am getting myself into, I only know I have taken some huge steps in improving my writing experience this year, and so far I have never regretted a moment. They have all been amazing, fun, rewarding and nerve-raking… this is sure to be just as adventurous.
If you are a campaigner, introduce yourself here so we can get to know each other. Feel free to zip around my blog and don’t forget to leave a comment.
Hello fellow campaigner! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I look forward to learning more about you throughout the campaign. 🙂
Hi JR, nice to meet you, likewise.
Hello! I love the tagline on your blog “Writing to fulfill a dream.” Lovely. Looking forward to reading more from you throughout the campaign.
Glad you like the tagline, take your time looking around and enjoy. I too look forward to reading more of you.
Hi Diane – fellow campaigner here to say hi and follow. I write picture books, mostly, though trying to branch out of my comfort zone into MG/YA. Looking forward to getting to know you through the campaign 🙂
Hi Susanna, so good to see you here. mmm joining the campaign is branching out of my comfort zone…lol. Enjoy your time here.

LOL….and I’m stoked to be campaigning with you too Jolene.
Hello! Another campaigner here. I heard of the campaign through a friend and am excited to see who I might add to my list of writer friends. I read through several of your posts. I was intrigued by your descriptions from the writer’s conference in LA. We writer’s are an odd bunch, aren’t we? Full of words which must be left behind somewhere. Looking forward to seeing something new born in this campaign and thankful to make another friend. Happy Wednesday!
Hi Kris, yes the same here. Looking forward to making some wonderful writer friends. I am pleased you are purusing my blog. The LA SCBWI Conference was my first big conference I was miles away from home, scared and thoroughly enjoyed it….. amazing! Look forward to hearing more from you.
Thank you for your visit and comment over at my house. Looking forward to getting to know you during the campaign. 🙂
Likewise Robyn, so pleased to see you here.

Hi, good to meet you. This is my first time as a Campaigner and I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone.
So happy you stopped by Rosalind, you and I together will learn much I guess from this new experience.
Hi! So excited to meet you. 🙂 And yes, I don’t know what I’m getting myself into either, but I’ve already enjoyed meeting so many writers. I look forward to getting to know you. 🙂
LOL … feeling is mutual Janet. Nice to see you here. This looks like going to be heaps of fun with so many wonderful writers like yourself. Look forward to hearing more from you.
So great to me a fellow Aussie and campaigner:) I write Urban Fantasy, horror and YA:)

Hi! It’s great to meet you! I am in your Aussie/Kiwi group. I’m really looking forward to meeting some great people and having fun during the Campaign!
Hi Jen, the feeling is mutual. So good not to feel so far away from everyone when you find out like this, there are writers near you. Glad you stopped by.
Hi! I’m Kelley, nice to meet you. Thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂
Hi Kelly *waves*, No problem, will pop back again soon when I have gone around everyone in our group. Nice to see you here.
I took part in the 2nd campaign and it was brilliant. This one is proving to be even more brililant already 🙂
Hi Lynda, so happy you dropped in. Always good to hear reports on how others feel about the campaign. It is certainly shaping up to be pretty awesome alright!
Hi. I’m late making my rounds. I’m excited to meet all the new and fun bloggers in this campaign.
Hi Stacy nice to meet you, pleased you stopped by. Do pop back again I hope.
Nice to meet you, and welcome to your first Campaign! Great job with your informative posts on New Zealand too. We Australians sometimes get similar comments from people who really don’t know anything about our country, along the lines of “Do you really all ride around on kangaroos?” but still – did they really think a New Zealander wouldn’t have worn normal shoes before? Hard to believe, given your country is making waves internationally in fashion design…
I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s true, mind you it was over 25 years ago. Yes we are doing really well in the fashion industry. Its being overshadowed at the moment with the Rugby World Cup right now. Hope you drop back again, love meeting you.
Hi Diane. Thanks for stopping by my blog and I appreciate your comments. This is my first time doing the campaign as well and it’s shaping up to be fun already. Looking forward to getting to know you. 🙂
Cool! another first timer……we will have fun together finding out what this is all about…. likewise Debbie. So pleased you stopped by.
Wave back from across the channel. Thanks for dropping by.
*waves frantically back* Hiiiiiii, hope you can see me amongst all these people…. gosh isn’t this going to be fun…. thanks for stopping by.
