While putting my first steps forward to start making my mark on LinkedIn, I stumbled upon an interesting topic. In a group about creative designing and writing. Amy Morse was looking for three writers there. She needed them to participate in a Blog Tour.
Great idea! I want to join. I thought and wrote. But. Eh. What is it about exactly?
This blog is about the concept, who got me involved and four questions I will have to work out in a blog post on April 7.
That next post in this tour will mention Amy, my answers to the four questions and three other writers. They get their spot with their biography and link to their blog. When it’s my turn to take over the baton and pass it on to them. They will have to post a similar blog post on the 14th.
This blog tour helps (aspiring) writers in getting introduced or known. And those writers help each other with that in this fun to do blog tour. It’s also a good way for blog readers to visit blog sites they otherwise wouldn’t have encountered.
I got on board somewhere along the way. I don’t know when this has started originally.
Concept sum up
1. Get asked by someone who is looking for three writers
2. Write a bio of approximately 75 words, send it along with a picture and a link of your blog to that person (keep their deadline in mind)
3. Work out the answers to those four questions in a blog post you exactly put up a week after your inviter has put up his or hers
The four questions
1. What am I working on
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
3. Why do I write what I do?
4. How does my writing process work?
That’s basically it. Sounds fun and not too difficult, right? Right!
I’m still looking for my three writers. Please, contact me if you want to participate with your blog.
No money involved. It only costs some of your time.
When I responded to the topic on LinkedIn, I didn’t have an active blog running. I’m very familiar with blogging, though. I just am in the process of creating a new more professional looking blog website. This tour idea made me decide to use a WordPress template first, to be able to provide Amy with a blog link on time.
The layout and look won’t stay this way. I will improve with my experience, ideas and creativity later on.
