"There are so many of us out there. Aspiring authors, bloggers (whether established or beginning), industry peeps, even published authors, all of whom want to build their online platforms. We write insightful posts and articles, actively blog within the blogosphere, take part in challenges, competitions, and contests galore.Sounds like a nice way to meet new friends so I'm going to give it a shot (the Campaign runs from August 22nd to October 31st). If you're an author/blogger who's looking to build your "online platform," maybe you should, too!
We have the passion and the drive to make it, but…we could all do with a bit of support.
So I started thinking. What if we link all these people together? What if we create a way to meet people in a similar position, people who genuinely want to help build our online platform while at the same time building theirs? People who want to pay it forward in the spirit of writerly writerness and blogging beautificity (and see it come back to them in turn).
And so, my Writers’ Platform-Building Campaign was born."

I'm a Platform-Building Campaigner
Writers' Platform Building Campaign. The beauty of the idea is in its simplicity -- support other authors who in turn will support you. Not in terms of cash (sadly), but as blog/twitter/fb/website followers and new like-minded online author pals. Rachel writes:

Hello I am also doing the campaign. I look forward to getting to know everyone!
Hello! Another campaigner popping by to join your blog :o)
I joined the Campaign for the same reason. Us lone writers must stick together. This is my first time as a Campaigner so I'm not sure what to expect but it sounds like fun.
Nice bio :) <3 from a fellow campaigner and now follower
Thanks everyone! This is great fun and I'm enjoying taking a look at all of your blogs -- quite a bit of interesting reading out there!
Fun, I write MG as well. I'm curious to see how this turns out. I have heard nothing but good things :)
Hi Roger! I'm a fellow campaigner stopping by to say hi. Hi.

As a new follower, fellow campaigner, I'm looking forward to reading more from you here.
Hi from a first-time campaigner! I'm in the PB-MG-YA group with you.
Hi, Roger, fellow Campaigner here. I like the sleek layout of your blog.
See you out there....
Hi Roger, I'm your newest follower and fellow campaigner. Just wanted to say hello!
Hello! Another campaigner, picture book writer and new follower, looking forward to getting to know you through your blog :)
Thanks for stopping by to Grillyfish and everyone else who doesn't seem to have a "followers" module on their blog (unless I'm missing something, which is entirely possible). I have been able to follow some of you on Twitter, which is also fun!
Hello from the campaign trail! I will be posting a brief intro for fellow campaigners on Thursday.
Hi, I'm a fellow campaigner and thought I'd check out the blogs.
Newest Follower, here, and part of the campaign. Glad to have found you! :)
Hi Roger, Dropped in to say Hi, wait I already did that. Okay, I am a fellow campaigner, who is getting very nervous seeing all this talent out here. Boy have I got work to do.
Nice to meet you, and I am looking forward to getting to know everyone. And possibly actually starting on a book of my own.
Hi Roger. I'm another campaigner and new follower. I did writing for television a while back.
Hello, fellow Campaigner, nice to meet you, I am new at this. New to blogging new to everything...lol
Hello fellow campaigner, nice to meet you.
Is it just me or is it hard for people on Blogger to "follow" people on Wordpress? What am I missing? (sigh) It's probably just me.
Fellow Campaigner, here! I love that you've dived in to writing and getting your book published. Best of luck with the project!
Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am trying to follow back, but blogger isn't letting me see your follow button. But I promise I will :)
Hi, J.A., No worries. Sometimes Blogger gives me trouble with that too. Clearing the cache and reloading the page usually helps. ;c)
Stopping by to say HEY. Fellow campaigner here. Loving the whole idea of expanding my writer connections. Also gotta say I love the Sinclair Lewis quote. True story. Writers write because we can't stop ourselves.
hi returning your visit - thank you - I think I joined to many grous is taking me forever to get to everyone - should have learnt my lesson from the previous campaign!!! not really stupid just give good impression!! enjoy the campaign
Nice to meet you, fellow fantasy writer. Looking through I see you have a new book nearly ready for release. Congratulations!
Hello, fellow fantasy campaigner! Life is getting hectic isn't it. Enjoy your proof stage!
