April is the month for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. You can find all the details by clicking one of their funky badges but essentially it’s a bit like NaBloPoMo with an alphabet theme. Starting today you pledge to blog everyday in April (except the other Sundays) and work your way through the letters of the alphabet as your prompt for each post. Today is A, tomorrow B etc. They can be any type of post you like, photos, fiction, poetry, recipes, and there is a separate list for people vlogging their way through the alphabet.
I stumbled across this earlier in the year. I wasn’t sure if I’d manage it having gone back to work but at the last minute I’ve decided to give it a try. I really enjoyed taking part in NaBloPoMo in November and found some fab new blogs to follow as a result of dropping in on some other participants. There are well over 1600 people from all blogging genres signed up to the A-Z Challenge this year so I bet I’ll find some goodies in there.
If you want to get involved, maybe you think you need a bit of a blogging kick start, like a challenge or just want to find some new buddies, the sign up linky will stay open until tomorrow night. If that doesn’t sound tempting enough as it is the challenge also has the most stellar array of badges I have ever seen for a linky. Seriously, even if you don’t want to take part it’s worth visiting just to check out their badges! There’s one for every taste and I might try and use a different one each day as an additional challenge. Do let me know if you are going to give it a try so I can come and visit.
So there you have it, my rather unimaginative start for the letter A: The A-Z Challenge.
Check back tomorrow to see if I manage to keep it up.
