Building a Writer’s Platform

As most of you know, I originally started this blog because all I heard about was how crucial it is for aspiring authors to have a ‘platform’. Whether it’s a blog, a website, twitter or some other social media. If you listen to the majority – writers need them.

Since starting this blog and joining Twitter/Tumblr/Pinterest etc. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how amazing the writing community is. There are so many online competitions, critique groups, advice blogs, motivational blogs… the writing community is huge.

So in the spirit of everyone having a little piece of cyber space they call home. Let’s share our platforms with one another! I’m especially looking for Tumblr peeps to follow. I need some more writers on my Tumblr feed.

So with that said, Lead me to your:
1. Blog
2. Twitter
3. Tumblr
4. Any other platform you wish to share.

Here are mine. Let’s follow each other and build our platforms.
1. Blog – You’re on it 🙂
2. Twitter –
3. Tumblr –

If you need me, I’ll be at Camp Nanowrimo 🙂

On a side note, my mum (being the proud mum that she is) entered me in the Best Australian Blogging Awards. So if you have a spare couple of seconds, feel free to vote for me. I’m listed as Jodie Llewellyn.

    Here’s a question for you, @JodieLlewellyn. You started your blog in September, less than a year ago, and you now have over a thousand followers. What do you think was the secret to your success? You seem to have had incredible platform growth in such a short space of time. Is it content? Tagging? Daily blogging? Or all of the above? Interested in your thoughts.

    To support, I think part of your growth is definitely from visiting and communicating with other bloggers. Good luck!
