The Crusade is a great opportunity to find other writers and support them by visiting their blogs and spreading the word about all the fantastic stuff they are doing. I am signing up to join and plan to do my part. I already try to support other writers as much as I can, but Rachel is helping to make this task easier by introducing us to each other via the Crusade. Rachel explains it in more detail on her post which you can reach by clicking on the link above.
I hope you will consider joining the Writers' Platform-Building Crusade as well, if you are of the writerly persuasion. I know I am looking forward to all the new connections with the fantastically talented people I am going to meet.
