The last time we had a pitch party there were comments flying around all over the place: a good few bloggers who participated ended up hundreds of extra visitors to their own blogs; and most of us discovered several brilliant new blogs to add to our reading lists.
All you have to do is pitch your blog in the comments section and add a clickable link to it (instructions below), and then visit and comment on at least three of the other blogs which have been pitched by my other readers.
If you don't have a blog of your own you're welcome to pitch other people's blogs; you can write and post as as many pitches as you like; multiple pitches for just one blog will be fine so long as each pitch is different, and pitching for multiple blogs is fine too. Just remember the rule about commenting on three other blogs for every pitch you post, though, otherwise it won't work.
Please keep each pitch to twenty five words or fewer, and make each one as compelling as you can: funny, scary and outrageous will all be encouraged, but anything obnoxious, libellous or otherwise nasty will be deleted. Bear in mind that the better your pitch, the more visitors and comments you'll draw to your blog.
To make it as easy as possible for everyone to click about, please include a live, clickable link with your comment. There are two ways to do this: if you're anxious about it, you can compose your comment as a new blog post, add the links in the usual way, then copy it, HTML code and all, into the comments section here; or you can write it yourself like this, which links to my blog:
[a href="http://howpublishingreallyworks.blogspot.com/"]name your link here[/a]
Replace my blog's address with yours; add a name for your link; then replace those two pairs of square brackets [ ] with pointy ones < >, or the link won't work.
Now go and get pitching!
