Voluntine’s Week is almost among us, folks!
- What: A set-aside week where bloggers and fans volunteer articles to be published as Guest Posts on their favorite blogs
- When: February 17th, 2014 to February 21st, 2014
- Where: #Voluntines on Twitter
I am getting super excited. I have already authored a handful of articles and began making the proper contacts with the blogs I hope they’ll appear. I have even seen a few submissions to my own already.
I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone, as well as check in. Also, to share a few tips and reminders.
TIP: Don’t wait until the last minute to contact someone. You never know when someone will be out of town or distracted, so even if it just a paragraph or idea, go ahead and start making contacts.
RECOMMENDATION: Direct Messages on Twitter work great. Assuming you are already following one another, using Twitter to establish your contact works great.
TIP: Be prepared to do some promoting. I’ll do my best to help out all the posts I see, but the more reblogs and retweets we can get, the better. Even if you aren’t directly participating, sharing some posts would be really helpful if you have the time!
RECOMMENDATION: Add the #Voluntines tag to your blog post and tweets. This’ll make it easier for me and others to see your posts, and it’ll help get the word out.
I am really excited about this holiday. I hope you all are too. If you have a moment, share your own experiences thus far as well as suggestions in the comments below. And don’t forget to share this post or the original Voluntines post if you can!
