Week 18 - #MFRWAuthor 52 Week Blog Challenge Participants

Join us for week 18

Week 18: "What makes me laugh out loud"

Blogging is an opportunity for authors to connect with readers. Despite being writers, blogging is an entirely different style of writing and often stumps us. To help our authors blog consistently, thoughtfully and with purpose, Marketing for Romance Writers is announcing the 2017 Blog Challenge. Each week, authors use our writing prompt to create a meaningful blog post. We'll be posting every Friday... join us as often as possible.

All authors with blogs are welcome to participate. It's very simple!
  1. Sign up in the comments below to commit to the challenge. You will be "buddied" up with another author for support.
  2. Copy the badge onto your blog's sidebar. Share it on your social media networks. Be sure to link it back to this page.
  3. Write your weekly blog post based on the given prompt. Use #MFRWauthor in your title, and be original - don't use "week 2 of 52-week challenge" because that is not unique and won't drive readers to your post.
  4. Return to the MFRW Marketing Blog weekly to add your blog post to the linky list. This will be available each Tuesday for that week's posts. When adding your link, use the post's direct link - not your blog home page.


  1. Where is the linky thing to add our blogs?

  2. I don't see it either. I checked yesterday before I sent out the reminder and the signup linkwas there then.

  3. I saw a notice that linkytools is now a subscription servvice. Half the site including the home and help pages are now down. I'm still going to do my post tomorrow and anyone who wants to participate can leave their link in the comments.

  4. I was wondering where the link thing was.

    1. Looks lilke things got fixed. added your link to the rest.

  8. Linky suffered a few hiccups today. Not sure why, but all blogs using Linky were affected. Everybody is there now and I'll put a message out to the group.
