Today I worked on a little bit of a lot of projects (if that was in any way coherent). I began by trying to find bloggers or other miscellaneous organizations in Arkansas that I could contact to let them know about Stage of Life and KARK’s “Arkansas Teens Matter” program. I found an Arkansas based Mommy blog and contacted them about the contest; they got back to me right away, and seemed very excited about the idea!
Next I tried to find websites that help writers promote their blogs—much like Stage of Life does. A lot of the sites I found seemed like scams or didn’t have any contact info. You know, the sites were you submit your blog URL and MAGICALLY OVERNIGHT have a million new followers. I contacted one website, but even then I wasn’t sure about their credibility. Worse comes to worse, they just don’t reply.
I did a lot of PR work (read: a lot of emailing). I contacted about ten major media sources and let them know about the Media writing contest results. Hopefully one media source picks up the story!
I continued with blogger outreach and publisher outreach; I contacted one new blogger and about three new publishers/agents. I am looking forward to hearing a (any) response!
