Paying it forward blogger love

One thing I love about the writing community is that we're always willing to help each other out. I've had this proven to me multiple times when I haven't been able to figure something out with my writing, or my blog, or just life in general, and my writing friends have always come to the rescue. I hope that I've been able to repay the favour on occasion.
Melissa, over at Fiction Toolbox, has come up with a great idea for paying it forward in the writers-who-blog world. We were all new here once upon a time, right? And how much easier did the writing community make things when you weren't really sure what you were doing? Or did you go it alone at first and wish you had someone to mentor you through those first few weeks or months of your blog?

In the Get Fired Up blogfest established bloggers lend a hand to newby bloggers. It can be in any way shape or form, so if you feel inclined to share some hard earned wisdom go check it out.

If you're a new blogger and need any tips or direction on anything blogging related, please let me know in the comments. I'm here to help and I'm sure so are a lot of my blog readers.


In other news, you may have noticed things look a little different around here! I thought it was past time for a new look. What do ya think?

  1. I love the new blog look! The only thing is the picture cuts off before it reaches the other side of the "body" of the blog. Is there a way to stretch it just a bit more? I think this would also make the subtitle more easily readable.

    1. Hi Brooke, thanks for pointing that out! I've increased the size of the image but I can't figure out how to make the width relative to the screen size. Hmmm... some research for another time.

  2. I love the new blog look.

    Sounds like a great blogfest, I'll be gone a good portion of Feb on vacation, so I won't be able to participate. Great idea though.
