As the September blog mistress here at WITS, I'm taking a page out of my personal blog's playbook and marking the beginning of Autumn with a celebration of you.
I'm doing this a few different ways...
First up, we're doing what I call "Pimp & Promote." We try to do this once every few months at More Cowbell and it's a habit I originally picked up from Chuck Wendig.
Note: if Chuck's name is unfamiliar, you are seriously missing out.
For those who are new at this…Pimp and Promote means you:
1. Promote: share one thing that you’re proud of, whether it’s a new book, an idea or a blog.
2. Pimp: Do the same for someone else whose work has lit you on fire this week.
I'll get this party started with a quick promote of the WriterStrong series we started last week here at WITS. August McLaughlin did our inaugural post and we have many, many more to come. I'm very excited about what's coming up here this Fall. We're gonna rock your world. 🙂
For my PIMP, I'm going to take a moment to call out the three top commenters here at Writers In The Storm this month. WordPress lets me see this sort of nifty statistic and today is the perfect time to say thank you!!!
WITS wouldn't be what it is without all of you but these three are the icing on top of our blogging cake this month.
Florence Fois, who many of you know as Ramblings from the Left, is one of most avid commenters here at WITS. It makes me smile whenever I see her name come across my screen. She'll have the effect on you too, I promise.
Ella Quinn participates, engages and even re-blogs our posts. She's a dream blog follower, plus her blog has spice and variety all on it's own.
I keep up with these three stellar ladies and I think you should too. Click their names to see an amazing recent post of theirs. Follow them on Twitter. Find them on Facebook.
I promise you’ll be glad you did.
It's your turn to try your hand at this "Pimp and Promote" business. Don't be shy if you're new at this. We'll hold your hand...and approve your comments. You are encouraged to oooh and aaaah over each other's links and then pimp a little more. 🙂
Happy Monday, y'all!
