Coming in April: Blogging A to Z Challenge

I just signed up to participate in the Blogging from A to Z challenge, a month-long blogging event hosted by Arlee Bird from Tossing it Out and some other lovely people on the writers blogosphere. So in April, I'm going to be blogging almost every day. On April 1st, I will post about something that starts with the letter A. On April 2nd, I will post about something that starts with the letter B, and so forth. Other participants will be doing what I'm doing, and we'd get to check out each other's blogs during this time. The purpose of this challenge is for writers to stretch their blogger muscles and get to know one another. I've never participated in such a challenge before, but this sounds like it could be fun.  In fact, I've already started working on some posts to be published for this particular event. For more information, click here.  On a recent blog post, Arlee mentioned he and his team are hoping to have 1,000 bloggers registered by March 1st (though the deadline to register isn't tomorrow). So I'm hoping we can make this happen. 

If you've participated in Blogging A to Z before, feel free to let a newbie like me know what to expect.

Newbie here also, I'm looking forward to it. Think it's going to be hectic!

I need to get my head down and get some posts written for it. I've just settled on a theme which is the third one I've considered. I know it will creep up on me!

Cynthia said...

Nick, Good luck with picking a theme and doing your posts! For me, I find some letters easier to write posts for than others.

I've signed up for the first time. I'm really looking forward to it :-)

Cynthia said...

Sarah, I'm looking forward to this too. =)

I was thinking about doing this but April is going to be crazy so I'll just be following alone. Next year You can be the experienced one and I'll be the newbie.

Cynthia said...

S.P., Too bad you can't do it this year, but do come visit here in April! I'm already working on some posts for this right now.

I'm a newbie to A to Z too, getting a jump start on visiting. :)

In reply to your visit/comment: I found my writer's group through meetup.com

Still haven't met the thousand, but I would imagine by April 1 we'll be close to 1500. There are a lot of last minute decision makers. Glad you've signed up early.

I'm afraid A-Z is just too ambitious for me at this time, but don't let that keep you from having a great time. I'll be reading. :)

Thanks, David!
