One of the things that I have major issues with as a blogger is…well, lots of things. However, today I’m focusing on one constant source of frustration for me: self-promotion. There are lots of problems associated with self-promotion, but the primary one is: When and where is it okay?
That question was, essentially, the catalyst for my newest feature. I wanted to create a place for people to promote their blogs without fear or shame.
- Did you write a discussion post this week and you need some help getting the ball rolling? This is the place to tell people about it!
- Maybe you’re having a giveaway? Link to it in the comments section!
- Have a review that needs a little love? Let us know so we can take a look!
- Need an associate reviewer? Get the word out in the Weekly Reporter!
So, here are the rules (because, what would a feature be without rules?):
- If you have something you want to link up, please leave a comment with the link. I will then add the link to the post.
- Please state the name of your blog so I can attribute your link.
- If you’re linking up to a giveaway, please tell where the contest is open (US only, international, etc.) and the date it ends.
- If you’re linking up to an event (like the Historical Fantasy Jubilee), include the name, date, and host(s) of the event.
- If you’re asking for help (like an associate reviewer or guest posters for a special event), please leave a link stating where and with whom respondents should get in contact.
For this week, I’ve gathered a few odds and ends so the post wouldn’t look too empty. However, I’m hoping all of you will be able to help me flesh it out!
