LinkedIn Connection Fest

Don’t know how to find your URL? It’s easy. Click profile and see the screen shot above.

Not too long ago, our Lynne Cantwell wrote about how many of us aren’t really finding a use for LinkedIn anymore. Maybe if we made some new connections, we could show each other a thing or two. So come on down and join in the LinkedIn like-fest!

This is how it works: If you are an author, publisher, publicist, literary agent, book reviewer, librarian (or especially a book-lover), etc., in the comments below, paste in the link for your LinkedIn profile. Make sure you show some love to the profiles in the comments above yours, and check back throughout the day to catch up. to get your ID, merely go to your profile and copy the link next to the BIG pink arrow in the picture above (i.e. –

Click on the person’s link in the comments section below, and you will go to their profile. (Remember, if you right click on the link and open it into a new tab, that will eliminate the need to click back over and over.) Then click CONNECT. (See photo below.)

  1. Just make sure you pick a job we have in common (like being an author) or they’ll ask for an email address.

    FYI, I’m only doing this for people I’ve seen around enough that I feel I know them. I don’t want to open my contacts up to spam. So if you’re a newbie who posts here — my apologies, but it may not happen this time. I’ll catch you next time around, after we are better acquainted.

        1. The “friend” approach doesn’t always work. I get asked for an email address even for “friends”. I apologize for not reaching out to follow any of you here (it’s not from lack of trying!), but I will gladly accept/follow back anyone who reaches out.

      1. It seems entirely random, honestly. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. Maybe it depends on how many shared connections we have? Or how often I am trying to connect?

        1. I think it’s similar to Facebook. If you “friend” too many people on FB they ground you for a week or so. If you do it on LinkedIn they make you provide an e-mail address for new contacts…unless it’s people they suggest as contacts, then I guess they don’t care

    I’ll accept all connection requests and I trust those here with my email. bender1889 @ I may not catch up with everyone until later … work for me today consists of fly fishing for trout in the mountains … I call it research and it is deductible. Ahh, the advantages of being a nonfiction writer!

  3. I have sent invitations to just three people here: @Brenda Lee, @Annette Rochelle Aben and @Sandra Hutchison. LinkedIn is weird, and could penalize you for approaching too may people. I will be catching up with the others here gradually, and that is what I would advise everyone here to do.

    1. Hi Venkatesh, when did this “penalty” thing start with LinkedIn? Is this new? And what is their maximum number of connections before they give people a hard time? Thanks.

  4. Sent out invitations to four more people today, got to keep it slow and easy. Don’t want LinkedIn coming after me with a sledge hammer.
