Thought of the moment....

No matter how hard you try, you will NEVER control anyone else's attitudes, actions, or outcomes. The only person that you have the ability to directly impact is you, and it is your responsibility to learn how to do just that...to utilize the knowledge, skills, and abilities you have been given to impact the world in the most positive way that you can EVERY chance you get!

Are you a Crusader?

I have been catching up on blogs lately since I am up and running back on the internet. I came across Rachael Harrie's post about the Crusaders and thought that would be a wonderful opportunity. So here is some information about it.

What is the Crusade? 

Basically, the Crusade is a way to link those within the writing community together with the aim of helping to build our online platforms. The Crusaders are all bloggers in a similar position, who genuinely want to pay it forward, make connections and friends within the writing community, and help build each others' online platforms while at the same time building theirs. 

Last year (my First Crusade) we had 55 Crusaders, many of whom have become great blogging friends. We saw our followers skyrocket and the comments on our posts increase, and had fun taking part in Crusade Challenges as well. 

I’ll list your names and blogs on my List of Crusaders page so you can keep in touch with the other Crusaders. And you’ll have a list of bloggers in the same position as you, who genuinely want to help you succeed. You can visit their blogs, follow along, leave comments galore, and share your highs and lows as you journey through the blogosphere and build your online platform. And they'll be doing the same for you.

Hi Regina, fellow Crusader,

I saw the lovely comment you left at KayKay's corner about my upcoming event "Who Is Saint Giovanni?" I'm nervous but also excited by the idea of posting my YA novel in weekly installments!! And I am so happy that you decided to become a follower so you can stay tuned!! :-) You're always welcome to sign up to win an advanced copy (very few will be given out) or for any of the other participation options:-)

Thanks for you interest!
