New Plans and an Offer for You!

So, I’ve been trying to think of a way to revamp my blog and get all you lovely people back to enjoying my posts instead of listening to my excuses.  I got this post in my inbox from For Bloggers By Bloggers.  It encourages bloggers to create a little “tribe” of other bloggers to keep one another accountable and work at mutual posting enthusiasm.

Naturally, this appealed to me.  =]  You know how I love my writer friends.  And, as many of you ARE my writer friends, you know how hard it is to keep us motivated a lot of the time.  I’ve got a few tendrils of interest already, but I’m looking for a couple more bloggers to round out our crew.  I have two slots to fill, so read the info-blurb below and, if you’re interested, comment your email address or email me directly from the Contact Me page.  We’ll get rolling on seeing if this is right for you.  =]

Blogging Team Info

Salut! Below is everything you’ll need to know about the “tribe” of bloggers I’m aiming to get together under one blogging banner. I haven’t thought of a quirky name yet, so if you have any ideas, I’ll toss them around to everyone for consideration.

The Numbers:

  • Seven bloggers. Each using their own blog site, preferably with some sort of posting schedule attached to it. (If you don’t have one, I can help you implement one or brainstorm.)

  • A weekly group chat via Facebook, tinychat, Skype, etc will take place to keep everyone abreast of the seven blogs and their plans. It also helps keep everyone accountable. This project takes some level of commitment, and we want to make sure everyone is up for it.

  • Should a blogger need help making posts now and then, they are more than welcome to ask the group for guest posts to round out their week.

  • You do NOT have to post every single day, but we will try to make sure that at least one of us is posting every day. It’s flexible, so don’t be intimidated.

What Will We Do?

  • Post writing-, reading-, author life-related content on a regular basis.

  • Guest post on each other’s blogs.

  • Comment regularly on each other’s blogs.

  • Create a monthly newsletter (either individually or “tribe”-wide.)

  • Support and promote each other’s work.

  • Post the group logo/button/banner (forthcoming) somewhere visible on your blog. If you like, you can also create a page dedicated to the group, but it’s not mandatory.

    The whole idea really excited me! I noted some blod subjects in my little black book! Cliche I know, but it is what it is!

  2. This sounds like just what I need to kick my butt into gear with blogging, and making it even more fun! I’m in if you still have room :)

  3. This sounds like just the kick in the pants I need to start writing and blogging regularly and a group setup like this could really increase my personal moral because I hate to let people down when I feel like they’re depending on me. If it’s possible, I’d like a hand in this.

  4. Gah! You’re probably full by now, aren’t you? If not:

    Of course, if you do get way too much response, perhaps another tribe could be built out of it. If that looks like the case, let me know that too!

  5. Well, my blog really needs a good ol’ dusting off and getting back into gear. There’s some things I’ve said on there that I really don’t want to leave unresolved, and having a group of people trying to do the same certainly sounds like a good incentive not to slack off.

    Here’s hoping to make the cut.

    Hey Kit! Hope you had a really great birthday! Excited for you to blog more often. Looking forward to reading your posts! Good luck with the tribe, sounds like a cool idea!
