Trying to Reach Out & Sheri's give-away



Sheri is one of the nicest bloggers I have meet. She has great news and an awesome giveaway today. SHE HAS AN AGENT!!!  Check out her blog. 

We are all celebrating over on her blog. Please come over and meet her if you don't know Sheri already. ;)

On another note, last week I was saddened from a post from good bloggy friend. She was upset by the lack of outreach she was receiving. 

Even though I'm not at a place where I feel I can help her much, it did make me think. I realized I needed to do more to reach out and share other's news.

This is something I'm terrible at.

But it's something that I've always wanted to do, so I'm doing it!

So I'm starting a "news" board over on my right side bar. If you get and agent, if your book is coming out, if you've finished your first draft...let me know! I'd love to share it!!!If you have a give away, whatever, let me know.

I know it's not much, but I hope that starting small will help. Plus, I love the bloggy love. Just saying.

Have a great week everyone!

You are wonderful! What a great idea. I haven't figured out how to add a left sidebar yet (at least and not lose my personalized formatting). Something to work on . . . maybe a news page? Hmmm . . .

Yes, that is a good idea.
Sometimes I do accidentally miss good news from bloggers...

Very good idea! It's easy to lose track of all the great things going on sometimes. Congrats to Sheri!

I know what you mean. I've been horrible at news sharing, or commenting, for that matter. I'm sick as a dog today, but a promise made is a promise kept in my book. Thanks for being so supportive during my absence. :)

Sharing the (love) news is not only helpful for other writers, but feels good! Good idea about the sidebar.
