Platform has been on my mind as of late. I’ve been tweeking my own author platform in small ways to help make it reach more new readers. I’ve been reading up on the subject and I have shared some of what I’ve gleaned down below in the links, along with a few general writing articles. Enjoy!

Platforming and trying to write at the same time is like working full time in two seperate universes! Eek. You might try to pad up your writing projects by adding a re-cap of your badges (Nanos from 2010, 2011…) don’t forget you are the writer of this blog, and add in any memberships pertaining to writing that you currently hold. We all do a lot more than we realize. Good wishes to you

Are you referring to my writing credits page? I’m not sure what you mean by memberships? 🙂
Yes, the Writing Credits page. Sorry, I should have been more specific. It’s kind of like your resume page. Memberships would be to any writing groups, critique circles, editing or beta reading or guest blogging etc.
Oh I see. Yes, I belong to many such groups. You can see some of them in my blogroll. I will give that some thought. 🙂
…and I love your necklace in your photo! Fantastic! Is it one of your own creations?
Thanks. 🙂 I created one of the charms on the necklace. It was a group project with my old artisan marketing group. A dozen of us each created a unique charm for the necklace. Then the necklace was sent to each one of us to hold onto for two to three weeks. We were charged with taking a photo wearing the necklace. I took it with me on vacation and took my photo while on a cruise. I liked the shot so much that it has become my main headshot. After we all wore the necklace, it was sent to Belle Amoire Magazine to be featured in an article with our story. They did a wonderful write up on the necklace and of our group. Then the necklace was auctioned off and the proceeds given to a cancer charity.
