The Go Dog Go Café is excited to announce two new weekly features starting Monday, February 12th that are designed to allow all members of the GDG community to interact and support each other and to get introduced to some great writing that we might otherwise miss.
Promote Yourself Mondays
Every Monday starting at midnight EST, Go Dog Go readers, guest writers and baristas will be able to post one link to one specific post from their personal blog into the comment section of our Promote Yourself Monday Post. Be sure to pick your best recent post*, because we will be choosing a Weekly Barista Favorite to be published in full on the Go Dog Go Cafe with a link back to the writer’s personal blog.
Pay It Forward Thursdays
This is your opportunity to give a shout-out to the best pieces you have been reading on WordPress. Every Thursday starting at midnight EST, Go Dog Go readers, guest writers and baristas will be able to post one link to one specific post from someone else’s blog into the comment section of our Pay It Forward Thursday Post. This is a great chance to give a shout-out to someone who has wowed you as a reader, creatively inspired you, and/or to introduce a new writer to a wider audience. We will again be choosing a Weekly Barista Favorite and inviting the author to have their piece published in full on the Go Dog Go Cafe with a link back to their personal blog.
We are hoping for lots of participation in these weekly features. Feel free to reblog this post and invite your readers to stop by the Go Dog Go Café.
If you post a link, be sure to read some of the other great writing people have linked to. An important way to improve our own writing is to read great writing. A key way to gain an engaged following is to be an engaged follower.
Read you next week!
*By choosing to post a link on the weekly Promote Yourself Monday post, the editors of the Go Dog Go Café will assume that you are giving permission for the full piece to be published the following week on the Go Dog Go Café, properly listing you as the author and linking readers back to your blog if your piece is chosen Barista Favorite.
