Sign Up for Blog Circle

follow your dreams, build your business, networking, social media connections, business storytelling

I am taking a great online class called Between the Lines: Telling the Story of You and Your Business.  Because our class is almost over, I had an idea to create a blog circle so that my classmates can keep supporting, encouraging and inspiring each other to tell the stories of ourselves and our businesses.
Hopefully, it’ll help us build confidence, blog traffic, an audience and some social proof for our blogs, twitter followers and Facebook fans.  If you own a business and would like to become a better blogger through storytelling and social media connections, you can join our group.  So far, we are six members strong.

I imagine it working like this…

Each artist-entrepreneur

1. needs a blog

2. needs a twitter or facebook account or both

3. can commit to writing a least one blog post per week

To add to the circle, each week you’ll need to:

4. visit this website every Sunday  in June and post the link to the post you want comments on

(I may start using the mr. linky plug-in in the future also)

( if you go on vacation let us know and you can catch up later)

5. leave a comment on each blog in our circle

6. use twitter and facebook to mention and support each member of our blog circle  at least once a week . 

( and hey, if you point to a blog post where you’ve commented— it might be more traffic for you)

( could be as easy as follow friday #ff)


If you can deliver the goods, let’s get this party started…  Please leave this information as a comment to this post

1. First and Last Name

2. Blog Url

3. Twitter Name: @?

4. Facebook Page

5. Write a sentence about why being in a circle interests you and what sort of support you would like to receive.

6. E-mail address (to spam proof it — write it like this example fun (AT) artyowza (DOT) com)


I look forward to learning more about each of you and deepening our connections.

    5. I’d like to stay in touch with the people I’ve met through Between the Lines and would like to see us continuing to support each other as we take the knowledge we’ve gained and apply it to our indie businesses. I’d also love to see how everyone continues to evolve!

    5. I am so happy I found this (via Kate@ Marmalade Moon), because she and I were chatting recently about how “lonely” we feel when it comes to discussing the topics we explored in the class. Looking forward to keeping the conversation going…
