February is "Love an Author" month, and today we're going to love on YOU! Here is a small sampling of those of you who are a part of the Go Teen Writers Facebook group. You are all so beautiful!
Go Teen Writers was established in 2010 when Stephanie Morrill wanted to create a place to encourage and connect teen writers. In 2012 when she and Jill Williamson learned they shared that passion, they joined forces. Currently there are 1231 followers, 688 members of the Facebook group, 1,300 Newsletter subscribers, and 40,000 page views each month. The writers who hang out on the blog are some of the most encouraging, helpful, and hard working writers in the industry. They know how to respect their dream while taking care of fellow writers and having fun along the way.
Ways to love on each other today:
1. If you're friends with some Go Teen Writers followers, email, Tweet, or Facebook each other some encouraging comments to brighten everyone's day.
2. Choose a few ways you'd like to be followed or supported and post those links in a comment below. Take your time and try and get all your links in one comment. (Hopefully we won't have trouble with spam...) You can also leave encouraging comments for each other below.
3. For those of you who are on Facebook, I've started a thread for each of the major outlets in which you can be followed. Go there and post your links on the appropriate thread, then follow the other people's links on that thread. Let's please try to keep them on the individual threads to make it easier for everyone to find and to not totally take over the wall. Check back later in the day to see who you missed. Let's all follow each other today!
