NaNoWriMo 2016 Blog & Social Media Hop


Welcome, fellow Wrimos! If you’ve read even one article on book promotion, you’re familiar with the term “author platform”, which is basically your marketing reach. It’s how you’ll promote your books, especially online. So, let’s build our platforms together! Add your blog and social media pages in the form below, and I’ll send it out to every participant at the end of NaNoWriMo 2016. Then we’ll follow one another’s pages.

The form will close on November 30, 2016 at midnight PST, and the hopping will begin in December.

PRIZE ANNOUNCEMENT: All participants will have a chance to win critique prizes, and we have 12 of them to give away including 2 full manuscript critique! Read about the awesome prizes here.

UPDATE: The form closed with 409 participants. Watch your inboxes for an email from me in early December. Please be patient with me, as I still have a lot of work ahead of me to put this together for you. Thanks!

  1. Hi Raimey, I wouldn’t normally do this but you seem human and friendly enough. Plus all the Canadians I know are ‘a little crazy, but lovely.’ So I’ve submitted the form. Because using WordPress and promoting NaNoWriMo is like drinking tea, liking the same band and owning a dog. In my head I’m convinced that only good people do this so it’s ok to trust them. Good luck with Nanowrimo and thanks for asking me to join in. All the best, Jim / James (I’ll be tweeting about Nanowrimo all through November here as always:

  2. Fabulous idea. Thanks for organizing this. I imagine it took a lot of time to put this together but we will all benefit in the end. I just finished signing up. I was getting so frustrated, because I was doing it on my phone and every time a text or call came through I lost all my entries and had to start over. I finally put my phone on airplane mode and completed it. Thanks again for putting this together for everyone. I hope to meet many new friends this year from NaNo. I’ve tweeted about this a few times and I included a link to the blogfest/bloghop in my NaNo post today at

  3. Hi Raimey, This is a great idea – unfortunately, no matter which browser I try, the form won’t let me click into any of the fields. So, if you’re able to see the data from here, my name is Carolyn Swain (although I write under Caroline Swan). My blog is:

    My NaNo and Wattpad handle is: agentswain.

    I’m on Facebook as Carolyn Vance Swain and Medium as Caroline Swan.
    I write a bit of everything. My first completed novel is psych suspense, but this one I’m doing for NaNoWriMo will be YA.
    Thanks for organizing!
