Follow Fest '14!
Once you've launched your post (instructions here.), copy the link and come sign up on the Linky.
It will stay open all week.
You can start visiting blogs and meeting other writers anytime. If you already know someone, that's cool. Visit their blog anyway. It'll be a good opportunity to catch up with them and make sure you haven't missed any of their follow options.
Still not sure?
Let me sweeten the pot with a giveaway. :)
Since this fest is for writers, the prize will be the winner's choice of a free 15-page critique or 25% off my regular rate for a line edit or proofread of your manuscript. The winner will be chosen at random from the Linky list of participants. (If a non-writer participant should win, I'll substitute a comparable prize.)
Oh, and I still need help spreading the word.
Feel free to add the blog button to your sidebar and link it to the Follow Fest information page (http://melissamaygrove.blogspot.com/p/follow-fest.html). You can also tweet and follow the progress of the fest on Twitter by using the hashtag #FollowFest14.
Here's a sample tweet:

The point of Follow Fest is to meet writers outside our usual blogging circles, so share this info any way you can.
Are you ready?
Good! Sign up and get hopping. :)
Note: Some folks are having trouble adding themselves to the Linky list. If you enter and your link does not appear, even when you refresh the screen, let me know. I can add you.
