However, not all pitching is limited to the type that takes place on a baseball field.
I’ve been thinking about the wildly successful Blog Pitch Party I threw back in July, and I thought it was time to host another.
As you know, I’m also a screenwriter. When I was lived in California, I’d get invited by producers to a pitch meeting. Basically, they’d ask about my scripts, and then based on a few sentences from me, they’d decide if they were interested in reading any of them.
In the comment section, pitch your blog. Give us the name, a link, and up to three sentences describing your blog.
If you choose to participate, I ask that you visit at least two of the other blogs that get pitched. You don’t have to follow them, but just give them a shot.
Here’s how I might pitch my blog in case you’re trying to figure out what the heck I’m talking about…
The Return of the Modern Philosopher: A humorous look at life in Maine from a slightly skewed perspective. If you want to know what everyday life is like in a Stephen King novel, this is the blog for you. Deep Thoughts from the shallow end of the pool.
Isn’t that easy? Doesn’t it sound like fun? Take a little time to perfect a pitch for your blog, and then share it with my nearly 12,000 followers.
Remember, you’ve only got three sentences, so choose your words wisely. The trick is to hook them immediately, and make them want to go directly to your blog.
This is all about meeting other bloggers and discovering great new blogs, while also spreading the word about your own. Be nice, have fun, and share the Blog Love!
Now give us your best pitch!
