The new Beginnings Challenge – a new way to help authors gain views!!!!!

An interesting modification of Carol’s awesome idea to share the posts and spotlight specific writers. Let’s give the challenge a name – my choice is The New Beginnings Challenge!

First, we want to be able to quickly find the oldest post of the authors we are including. Let’s start with how to get to an author’s oldest post, you go to their author profile page. Select the more button. Select posts. This takes you to a listing of all of their posts. Now click the highest number on the list you see and share the very first post they made on Virily. Views are slightly up based on the initial challenge (spotlighting by CarolDM). Let’s see if we can get things moving forward! The goal is to get the community engaged and involved moving forward with positive posts. Some of the older posts that authors have had on Virily for a while have many hundreds of views. Some of them are themes we see throughout our time here writing!

So I interrupt your regular schedule technology broadcast to join The Challenge of the new Beginning!

The challenge that was issued was by Ghostwriter. The rules are as follows (totally making these up there are no rules)

  1. Pick three authors and go to their profile page!
  2. Go to the last page of their posts in the author profile and share their very first post.
  3. Then send a message (see above) to the last person on your list of 3 authors. Include the link to the person who challenged you like a chain letter.
  4. If you have already been challenged you don’t have to participate more than once!

So to be clear – 3 authors. The author that challenged you, an author you read often, and finally, the author, you are challenging.

  2. All right I can give it a try and thank you for putting up that poem of mine. Now I see my mistake right away. I could never find the photo I used in that original post but I could do up another post on this poem of mine this time with many photos that work with my verses. I will give it a shot. I sure had no idea what I was doing at the very beginning So two things I take up the challenge and then redo my own post.
