I'm a Crusader.
I might not be an excellent Crusader (there were things I missed and times I spent away) but I'm a Crusader all the same.
Are you a Crusader?
What's that you say? Oh, okay, let me back up a bit and include some linkage.
A Crusader is a writerly blogger who has stumbled upon Rachael Harrie at Rach Writes and has noticed that she leads the most awesome Writer's Platform Building Crusade in the world. I'm not exaggerating.
Crusaders sign up and meet other Crusaders who vow to support each other in the blogging and writing community by way of comments.
Personally, I've met some of the nicest people in the blogging community this way.
I thought maybe I was going to skip the second round of crusading because I recently found out my mom is suffering from Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer and life has become somewhat overwhelming. However, the first round of Crusaders have been so supportive during this fragile time of my life that how could I pass up the opportunity to be part of this amazing community again?
I didn't REALLY feel like a blogger until the first round of Crusading. I would be completely lost and feeling left out if I didn't join again.
I'm a Crusader. That's who I WANT to be. Where do you fit in? Where do you belong? YOU BELONG WITH THE CRUSADERS! NOW GET YOUR BUTT OVER THERE AND SIGN UP.
Happy Writing, Writers! Can't wait to make your aquaintance soon.
