RLF Gem Award: Top Bloggers October 2014 Romance Lives Forever #RLFblog @MFRW_ORG

RLF Gem Award 
Last month, Romance Lives Forever had 31 posts in a 31 day month. We also had three unique events. For three days, the Cancer Awareness posts shared uplifting stories of survival and hope. Near the beginning of the month, the 1000th post for the blog went up, and we all celebrated. Then, on the last day of the month, we focused on the writer's organization Marketing for Romance Writers, which offers support and free promotion for authors.

The Top Blogger was the Marketing for Romance Writers.

The RLF Gems post each month usually ranks in the top ten, but is not counted, in order to focus on guests.

Romance Lives Forever features authors and new books. It has a blogger's FAQ page with a downloadable guide and optional interviews. Readers can follow via Google+, Networked Blogs, Linky Followers, email, an RSS feed, and there's a blog button readers and authors can grab. RLF takes up to three images per article, so authors can share previous books. The blog uses author or publisher names as tags on posts, and author Twitter handles in the titles. The site is broadcast over Triberr with a potential reach of over a million readers via its Twitter-linked network. Twitter mentions are also gathered in several ezines, giving the author additional opportunities for promotion. The Romance Lives Forever ezine features guest authors on its front page every day.
