Project: UnderBlog.....

I want to tell you the latest writing adventure with which I've become associated (thanks to my BRILLIANT friend with apparently low standards over at Hooey!Critic). Our first writing assignment is due next week, and I haven't even submitted my bio. Can you say "slacker"?

Neena is such an organized person that she even created this post for us to post on our own blogs. (She knew better than to count on ME to get it done in a timely manner.)

PLEASE come visit us (at the very least), and PLEASE consider writing something for us.

I wanted to share an exciting new project with you! It is called Project: Underblog. The website is still under construction and will be launching at the beginning of October. Project: UnderBlog is a submission-based collaborative writing project honoring the smaller voices in the blogging community. With a foundation of 5-10 core bloggers to publish, promote, and engage on a monthly basis, this is ultimately a place where the majority of the content comes from submissions. Anyone can submit and share their voices and stories without consideration of their blog stats, followers, page ranks, and social media reach. 
See, it isn’t all about the numbers. There are thousands of writers within the blogging community that write with authenticity on a daily basis and, because they may not possess the numbers most writing communities want, they may not feel they are being heard. But that doesn’t diminish the value of what they have to say. Project UnderBlog is a place where bloggers are accepted based on the power of their words and not on the reach of their numbers - where they can be heard, promoted, and celebrated no matter their size. It is about celebrating the fierceness of the “underblog.”

With that in mind we would love to have you consider submitting a blog post to our project. Your words, your passion, and your voice will be celebrated and promoted across an audience that doesn’t worry about numbers! If you're interested in adding a submission please let us know! You'll have freedom to write whatever moves you (no assigned topics or themes - just powerful words!) If nothing else I'd love for you to follow on Twitter (@projunderblog) and like us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ProjectUnderBlog) so we can work to build an amazing audience! Thanks for supporting this project!!! Email projectunderblog@gmail.com for more details!
