So you're here because you for some bizarre reason you have shown interest in joining my Blog Tribe (and yes, there will be virtual cupcakes #duh, its craftycmc).
1st off, a bit about it how this came about. The original idea came from the amazing Tiffany at #BloggyBootCamp.
Although, of course I have embellished it :-) #afailingofmine
Since I am super busy, I only want people within the tribe that are SUPER committed to not only growing their blog but their twitter account as well.
Here are a few perimeters I was thinking of...
You must solemnly swear that you are up to no -- Oh, wait, wrong pledge.
The Craftycmc Blog Tribe Pledge:
I commit to growing my Twitter account by at least 250 followers/month (preferably 500, if you don't know how to do that, I can help)
I commit to write at least one blog a week (ok, maybe you get a week off if you break your arm, or space aliens land, but it better be a good excuse!).
I commit to RTing everyone's #MentionMonday once each week (we will limit the tribe to 12 so we don't exhaust our non-blog followers and you should space out your RTs so it isn't a cluster-f :-).
I commit to follow each member's blog (even unanimously if you wish).
I commit to writing at least 1 comment on each member's blog at least once per week.
I commit to shouting out or RTing at least twice each member's blog through the rest of the week (again, I would space these out).
That's all I can think of for now, but I can guarantee you I will be the worst at follow-through, so I encourage if you notice I slipped up for you just to DM me and I will get right on it! :-)
If these terms sound completely awesome to you, then leave your vow of chastity-- again, wrong one...
Leave your commitment to the #CraftycmcBlogTribe and your blog URL so we can all get started following each other back!
Crap, I always hate when I think of something uber important AFTER I put in a great ending!
But, in case you don't know what #MentionMonday is, here is the link the primer :-)
And don't forget my novel Plain Jane is out!
Now be forewarned, there is no pink and definitely no Ding Dongs.
My rebellious pen name @cristynwest went a wrote a book about mystery and mayhem. #weird
If you like Patterson or Silence of the Lambs, you can find Plain Jane at Smashwords (http://bit.ly/b60jVe).
Watch the book trailer, listen to the audio excerpt, and even read over 50 pages of Plain Janefor free. I mean come on... #itcantgetbetterthanthat
