Announcement: Introducing inkPageant!

 

Welcome to inkPageant!

What is inkPageant? A blogging aggregator? A Google search for Bloggers? A writer's reference to all things writers have to say on the internet? All of the above! But we're just getting started and we need your help.

First, go to the website and have a gander!

It should look like this:


You will find tabs throughout the main page, containing links to blogs. Notice the search bar on the right? Let's say you want to know more about shy characters, or how to write shy characters. For an experiment, type "SHY" and press enter. And presto! You are instantly guided to a link that contains the information you seek.

And the more links we add to this database, the better the site will be able to help the writing community. In time, we'll have enough to cover just about any topic!

(and it helps drive traffic to your site--hint, hint...)

Whether your blog posts include writing advice, author/ agent interviews, book/movie reviews, you can create links to your awesome posts or the favorite awesome posts of your friends (please give them credit if you do).

Create an account (it's free) and link away! Be sure to add a few related tags to help the search engine.

Right now we're close to 100 links. We have moderators (including yours truly) standing by to approve your submissions. Help us spread your amazing blogs and your writing talent, one link at a time. It's fast and easy!

Follow on Facebook and Twitter. Blog it! Share it!

To help launch this incredible awesomeness, we're haing giveaways, like a $50 Amazon Gift Card, and more! We'll have more details on that coming soon.

Thanks for "dabbing" into inkPageant!

  15. David, this site looks beautiful. I'm bookmarking it until I've got time to explore it at my leisure. As I read your description I was thinking 'he has to get Janice Hardy involved', and who should I see when I got there? :-)

  21. Fantastico! I signed up as soon as I got home last night. It feels so awesome to be part of something so marvelously helpful to writers. I won't be able to submit many posts, because I don't focus on writing tips, but I'm going to LOVE hanging out at the website! Thanks a bajillion to you and Darren for putting this together for us! You're geniuses!

    It was awesome to hang out with you at the UVU Con yesterday! That's my favorite part of conferences - seeing friends and making new ones!
