Join the #emergingblogs2014 Writing Project

Joining a writing project has its own benefits that includes:
  • Getting link love.
  • Meet bloggers.
  • Receive traffic (especially to those who join early on) from current and prospective participants.
  • More than anything else, you will also be supporting a worthy purpose of spotting and promoting new blogs that are making great waves out there.
Please don't forget that this is a writing project - not an award. Who gets included in the final 10 is based on the total number of mentions by all qualified writing project entries.
