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 Paper.li ezines, giving the author
additional opportunities for promotion. The Romance Lives Forever
Paper.li ezine
features guest authors on its front page every day.
