What Campaigning Means to Me

Traci Kenworth


If you’re a participate of the Fourth Platform Builder’s Campaign over on Rachel Harrie’s blog, you’ve been a busy little bee like me all week, visiting blog after blog. I do apologize if it appears I haven’t been through some people’s blogs on the list yet. It’s true, there’s a lot of you I still need to drop in on. While, there are other blogs I had a hard time leaving a comment on as it said my opened credentials couldn’t be verified or on some, the captcha wouldn’t allow me to submit anything. As another blogger mentioned, you might want to check your blogs because after the 3rd or 4th time of trying, one usually gives up and that’s a lost reader.

Today, because of this, I joined Google’s Blogger which seems to let me connect with more blogs, so I’m hoping not to have this trouble as I continue through. Blogger allows me to link back to my wordpress blog, so that makes it even better. But I don’t know what to do about the captcha ones.

Anyhow, I just wanted to say how happy I am to get to know you all and read such fantastic entries. There’s nothing like being able to reach out to fellow writers who understand, who’ve been there, and know how to go that extra mile. The support is awesome and the turnout has been better than I expected. So welcome, if you’re stopping in. Have a look around. I hope you enjoy and subscribe. I try to keep everything positive and upbeat on here as well, doom and gloom just drag you down and who needs that?

I’ve learned some things while out and about I plan to put to use. Mostly though, I met some great bloggers and hopefully, eventual friends. This is a hard business but together, we can make it through. We’re not each other’s competition after all, that slot belongs to ourselves. Hugs to all who’ve joined and commented. I look forward to getting to know you all. Together, we can all build stronger platforms and maybe help each other on that journey to publication and beyond.
