- Direct email to those bloggers you know who haven't signed up.
- Announce in places where there could be bloggers (church, school, meetings, etc.)
- Post notices on bulletin boards (library, church, school, laundromat, etc.)
- "What's happening" sections of local newspapers.
- Whatever means your creative mind comes up with.
Why the thousand by March 1st? Oh, I don't know--it sounds good. But seriously, we want this to be the jumping up point for the next and final phase of sign-ups. We expect a sudden rush in the last week of March and last minute decisions at the beginning of April. Those of you who have already begun visiting those who are now on the list know how advantageous it has been to have these early sign-ups. I've seen many of you making the rounds and making new friends in the process--not to mention the added followers.
If more people sign up in these weeks before the Challenge rather on those last few days, we are all ahead of the game and will be less likely to miss some of those blogs that might have waited or will allow our own blogs to have the opportunity to be viewed and marked now as opposed to later. It's a win-win situation for all concerned. So please help us in our push for a thousand by March 1st.
And Still More News....
Next week on February 28th is the release of Alex J Cavanaugh's Cassafire. There's a big party on that day to celebrate. Join him to help his book catch fire on the book charts.
Don't forget our other co-host Stephen Tremp has a great book called Opening and it's now available.
Karen Gowen's Celery Tree online bookstore is also a place for you to check out for fine books from many of your favorite bloggers and it's something that you can be a part of as well if you have a book to market.
Go down the list of all of the co-hosts to visit their sites if you haven't done so already. There are books, artwork, and some darn good company to be found with all of them.
I'll leave you with the following message from our sponsor courtesy of Dale Smurthwaite:
