LAST CALL For Featured Blogger Consideration

1210888_phoneHello, my lovelies!!

One of the ways to bridge the distance between authors and readers is through bloggers. Bloggers who are enthusiastic, creative, and dedicated. One of the reasons last year’s convention worked as well as it did, is because I had a group of Featured Bloggers that helped spread the word beforehand, and pitch in during the weekend. I’d like to think it was worth their while. 🙂

Many authors mentioned getting MORE bloggers involved, and allowing more time for networking. So… in the interest of creating more face to face time, but not overloading myself, I’ve worked out a compromise.

I need 10 FEATURED BLOGGERS. The basic requirements and benefits are below:

  • Post monthly features related to Coastal Magic Convention. A VERY loose schedule will be created, keeping things “on track” but allowing each blogger to work their features into their blogs as they’re able. I will serve as a go-between when necessary, to help Featured Authors and Featured Bloggers coordinate. I will list each blog post related to Coastal Magic on the event website to help promote your posts.  I’ll retweet/share your post info as it goes live from the Coastal Magic Facebook page, and twitter feed.
  • Include Coastal Magic button/banner in a prominent location on your site, linked to this site. I’ll include your button/banner on our Featured Blogger page.
  • Spread the word (not obnoxiously or spammily) on your other social networking sites or groups.
  • Distribute flyers for Coastal Magic in your area libraries/bookstores/etc. WITH permission from locations.
  • Help with con prep before and during the event. Thursday, Feb 6th will be a full day of setup and prep. (Everyone will be expected to help for a few hours that day.)
  • Moderating 3 panels during Coastal Magic. Assistance will be available for anyone unsure of what this entails.
  • Thursday, Feb 6th, will be the Author/Blogger Speed Dating event, and is open to Featured Authors, and Featured and Registered Bloggers ONLY. This will be 3 hours of facetime with the authors, including a fun “speed dating” get-to-know-you event, and a mingle afterward.
  • There *may* be some special goodies as a thank you 🙂

I would like to have 15 REGISTERED BLOGGERS. These will be bloggers who plan to attend, but aren’t able to, or aren’t interested in, performing all the duties of a Featured Blogger.

  • Feature Coastal Magic in at least one blog post on your site. Can be an intro piece, an author guest spot, etc. I will share/RT the link from the Coastal Magic Facebook and twitter.
  • Display the Coastal Magic button/banner somewhere on your site. I’ll include a link to your site in the sidebar of the Coastal Magic event site.
  • Spread the word (not obnoxiously or spammily) on your other social networking sites or groups.
  • Moderate 1 panel during Coastal Magic. Assistance will be available for anyone unsure of what this entails.
  • Thursday, Feb 6th, will be the Author/Blogger Speed Dating event, and is open to Featured Authors, and Featured and Registered Bloggers ONLY. This will be 3 hours of facetime with the authors, including a fun “speed dating” get-to-know-you event, and a mingle afterward.

So… that’s the basic breakdown. I’ve been putting out feelers for a while now, and quite a few of you have emailed me. I’m making my final decisions this weekend for Featured Bloggers, and will be selecting Registered Bloggers for the next few weeks. Please email me ASAP at CoastalMagicConvention at gmail dot com if you’re interested in either position. Thanks!! I can’t wait to get started working with more of you in our amazing blogger community!!

**** And READERS!!!! Only 6 1/2 more weeks until General Registration starts!!!! ****
