A to Z Blog Challenge get 1000 signups by the end of today? Will there be 1000 bloggers willing to commit themselves to this wonderfully hectic and rewarding challenge a full month before we start? I hope so.
If you haven't signed up yet, let me give you some reasons why you should if you're a writer. Authors today must have a web presence. Your name must pop up on top of google searches. Readers will, hopefully, want to know what you're up to. What are you writing? What do you like to read? What is your process? Where do your ideas come from? Where will you make personal appearances?
Being a writer means always learning more of your craft. It means taking pieces of information and creating your own voice and style. In today's world, you learn from many sources but the one with deepest well of expertise is as close as your computer screen. Meet others of your ilk through your blog and theirs. How do you find this other blogs?
Back to my first paragraph for the answer. Sign up for things like the A to Z Blogging Challenge. You will find many new blogs you want to follow and they will find you. They will come to your blog.
