Thanks for asking me to be your friend at She Writes. I don't have much time to comment on the site right now, but hope that when I finish with school, and my book I will be able to spend time "talking story" with all of you.
I want to very be-latedly Thank You for joining my group Blooming Late!
As you have probably noticed we have been having some big changes around here, the group has grown so large that I needed to do some major delagating for different jobs. So we are in a state of flux at the moment but please bear with us!
I took the liberty of taking a look at your profile and your bio is awesome, its great to know that we have such a prolific writer in the group!
I also took a look at your blog which has such a lovely backround! The last post was so very touching. I can relate to it as my husband has stage 4 cancer. You truly are a very good writer and I am grateful that you chose this group to be a part of.
Now let me fill you in a little about us here at Blooming Late-
There are many wonderful women like you here in our group from all over the world and all ages, genres and levels of writing who are a real source of support,encouragement and inspiration. I hope that you will be able to make your writing home with us!
Please, when you have time let us get to know you a bit better by posting in our "To kick things off" discussion or if you don't feel like doing an extensive intro. then just say Hello" on our wall on the front page.
We have just started something new here too. We have launched our own group platform,we have our own group blog called "The Blooming Late Journal" which link can be found in our Discussion area if you would like to write a post in there and then plug your blog, your book and your own platform once you have them but you can write about anything anytime.
Then we have our own Twitter hashtag so we can talk to each other in there as well as make sure to re-tweet each others blog posts and important links, etc. It is #BLWriters - just add it to any of your tweets so the group can see them by looking for the hashtag.
And best of all, we have our own Facebook Fanpage under "Blooming Late Authors", please LIKE the page and then feel free to do your plugging in there as well as put things in there that you may find useful or fun for the group to see.
We would like it also, if as time allows, you would "friend" everyone in the group in here as well as in Facebook and Twitter so that our groups publicity potential is maximized for all the writing work we do and is seen out there on the net.
We have a PAGES section to the left of the group wall where you can list your great blog as well as your FB/Twitter handles if you have them (which I would ask on the latter, if you could get that up right away so that everyone could connect with you), among other things like your birthday etc.
We also have useful DISCUSSION areas that might be a help to your writing. You can choose to follow as many or as little Discussions as will interest and help you,we don't have any requirements on how much anyone participates but I would ask if you will set your settings in here to recieve the group emails so that you can be kept up on anything important in the group as a whole. On average I only email the entire group once a month.
Also, if there's anything I can personally do, I'll be happy to help with anything you may need. Again, forgive me for that partial welcome, but sincere thanks for being a member!
