I’m so very excited to be involved with a new project that’s launching the beginning of October. My friend Neena asked me to be a core blogger for her new site and I’m beyond honored! I know I’ve neglected this site since I started back to work, but I’m in a groove now and have plans to keep up with my writing. This is going to force me to do that!
What is this cool project, you ask? I’ll let Neena tell you in her words:
Project: UnderBlog is a submission-based collaborative writing project honoring the smaller voices in the blogging community. With a foundation of 5-10 core bloggers to publish, promote, and engage on a monthly basis, this is ultimately a place where the majority of the content comes from submissions. Anyone can submit and share their voices and stories without consideration of their blog stats, followers, page ranks, and social media reach.
See, it isn’t all about the numbers.
There are thousands of writers within the blogging community that write with authenticity on a daily basis and, because they may not possess the numbers most writing communities want, they may not feel they are being heard. But that doesn’t diminish the value of what they have to say.
Project UnderBlog is a place where bloggers are accepted based on the power of their words and not on the reach of their numbers – where they can be heard, promoted, and celebrated no matter their size. It is about celebrating the fierceness of the “underblog.”
With that in mind we would love to have you consider submitting a blog post to our project. Your words, your passion, and your voice will be celebrated and promoted across an audience that doesn’t worry about numbers! If you’re interested in adding a submission please let us know! You’ll have freedom to write whatever moves you (no assigned topics or themes – just powerful words!) If nothing else I’d love for you to follow on Twitter and like us on Facebook so we can work to build an amazing audience! Thanks for supporting this project!!!
