The Blog Blitz Effect

Writing can be an extremely lonely venture. Add to that the fact that most of us are experiencing a horrifically rigid winter, and it leaves many of us downright depressed.

For this reason (among many others), reaching out to other authors can be good for the soul. I'm not sure how I stumbled across DL Hammons's blog hop, but I'm so glad I did! The mystery/thriller/suspense writer started the blitz with the hopes of focusing on supporting and encouraging a single blogger at a time. Quite often the "target" will get over 100 comments on their blog. In the few months I've been participating, we've reached out to authors
who are going through personal and professional issues. The bloggers participating have proven to be kind souls, rallying together to lift the spirits of anyone who needs a pick-me-up. (Note, while there isn't any physical hugging involved like the picture on the left, you'll feel the love, I promise.)

So if you're looking for a day-brightener for both yourself and others, sign up for DL's inspirational project HERE.

D.L. has a great thing going. Though I sometimes wonder about how the list is used. Still, this blitz is a great way surprise and support bloggers.

The Blitz was a great idea! I've had fun visiting new people every month.
