It's A Crusade

I want you to start a crusade in your life - to dare to be your best.

Rachael Harrie has started her second Writer's Platform Building Crusade. In her words, "The Crusade is a way to link aspiring writers, beginner bloggers, industry people, and published authors together with the aim of helping to build our online platforms.

The Crusaders are all people 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."

I participated in the first Crusade and met some truly amazing writers, so of course I've signed up for this one and I urge you to also. Just go here and put your name in. I promise you won't regret it.


My friend Lola is having a PARTAY and giveaway on her lovely blog. If you've never been there, you should visit. It's full of inspiration and will leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.
 

The wonderful Andrew Smith, author of The Marbury Lens, has made his vlog debut, where he discusses YA for boys by boys, the US educational system and brussel sprouts. Definitely worth a look.

Until next time.

The Crusade should help in getting everyone in prime shape for Blogging from A to Z in April. Good luck building your network. Disciplined interaction with other bloggers is what it takes.

Andrew's video captured so much of what I've been thinking about blogging and YA books. It was so well done! I hope he does more.

Loving Lola's giveaway! And the idea behind it.
