Dear Bloggerly/Writerly Friends,

Are you looking for free, fun, and adventurous ways to advertise a currently or upcoming published work or blog? If so, please join the “My Writing Process” Blog Tour. This is how it works:

1. Write a blog post that answers the following four questions:

  • What am I working on?
  • How does my work differ from others of its genre?
  • Why do I write what I do?
  • How does my writing process work?

2. Within that post, link to the author who invited you and the author you invited.

  • Provide a brief biography and link to the author’s website/blog who invited you. This link should be to the blog post in which the one who invited you answered the four questions above.
  • Provide a brief biography and link to the author’s website/blog you invited to join the tour. This link should be to the invitees’ general blog and not their post as they will not have written it yet.

You can do this linking in the body of the blog or at the beginning/end.  The Blog Tour Guide suggests one blog per week. You are welcome to post quicker than that. It is important to keep it going.

3. Post and promote the post. 

In your blog post, be sure to add #mywritingprocess as a tag. This is also the case for posting on Twitter, tumblr, or any site that takes tags.

4. Profit.

Well that’s for the universe to decide. Let’s hope it increases hits to your website and sales of your book!

Here are some examples:

I am next on the tour. I will be posting this week. If you are interested, leave a comment. I’ll add your blog as a stop on the tour. Depending on how many I receive, I may send you the name of the next person (s) to add to the tour. If not, you’ll have to ask one of her writing friends.

I look forward to hearing from you. Now…All aboard!

Cordially,

Myesha

    • That’s great! I am working on mine now. I’ll link to your blog in my post. At the start of your post, you should include my link (and that I invited you, etc). At the end, you will introduce name of the writer you have invited with a link to their blog/website. Since the tour guide suggested a post per week, you can post next week (or this week if you’d like). When you do post, I am supposed to signal boost it to my various sites. I hope to be finished today or tomorrow. I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, you can ask your writer friends to join. Feel free to use my post from yesterday to explain the process to them. All the best, MDJ

    • Hello. You’ll pretty much follow the directions in that post. Invite a friend or two to join you. You can use my open call post. Write your post, answering the 4 questions. Be sure to include a reference to me and my work and that I invited you. At the end you will introduce the person you invited. The idea is to give and get publicity. After you post, you will send me the link and I will post on my social media outlets. When the person you invited posts, you will promote then. Please read my post as an example here: http://wp.me/p4vwoe-3B At the bottom, there are other examples.
