My LitTherapy crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo has come to an end, and I’m very grateful to the supporters, link-sharers and contributors! As I opted for flexible funding, I aimed high and was able to keep for the project any amount I made.
The money that I’ve raised is so useful for the site’s development, as are all the connections that I’ve made during the campaign. I’ve got in touch with so many great people, and I’m so excited to work on building a community around the site with you all.
I’m currently working on:
- Content for each book listed on the site
- A bibliotherapy forum
- A bibliotherapy blog for the website, on which bloggers on readers would be invited to contribute content
- Thinking through social features and a ranking system.
If you’re a blogger
You’re invited to contribute short summaries of your favourite books, ideally focused on bibliotherapy and with a mention of who you’d recommend the book for. This would be followed by your name and a link to your blog, to help you gain exposure for your writing.
You’re also invited to be listed as a contributor on the About Us page which is in progress! On this page you could list your blog, a few favourite posts, and a bit about you and your favourite books.
If you’re a reader
I’d also love for you to write summaries of your favourite books!
There will also be Librarian roles – one for each genre – which will involve expanding the books listed on the site, alongside Site and Community Manager roles.
Interested in getting involved, or have any ideas for the site? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
And, once again, thank you so much for all of your support!
