The Blogging from A-Z Challenge 2012

Here it is, the first day of February, and I'm sure all our New Year's resolutions are accomplished and completed, right? Right? Yeah, me, too.

So, why am I adding another goal, another challenge, to my already looooong list of to-dos? And why should you? Because this A-Z Challenge sounds like a lot of fun. Think about it - hundreds of bloggers (if not more!) all posting on the same day, about the same letter. The inspiration, the pure imagination of it all, is mind-blowing. The possibilities for posts are endless. Meeting other bloggers and finding new friends are practically guaranteed.


Since this is my first time participating, I don't have any actual advice on how to do it or what to write about, but here are some links to get you started:

What is Blogging from A-Z?

The Blogging from A-Z Challenge April 2012 Home Page

You can sign up now and start socializing and planning your posts but since the actual challenge doesn't start until April, that gives us plenty of time to cross a few of those old resolutions off our lists. (Keeping up with the housework? What was I thinking? Sheesh.)

I'm still debating about this one because I'll be out of town for some of April and I don't to miss anything. BUT I'm excited to read everyone else's posts!

You've got some time to decide, Emily. I'm having company for part of April but I plan on scheduling posts ahead as much as I can and playing catch up on visiting the other blogs. We'll see how it goes. :)

I'm toying with doing this challenge too. I think it sounds so cool!

Angela, it sounds like it'll be both a challenge and a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to giving it a try.

I'm so glad you're planning to the the April challenge. I had so much fun doing it last year, even though it was totally crazy at times, too. But I am definitely in for another go. :)

Yeh, Julie! I'm glad you're participating, too. :)

Hi Madeline, first time visitor. Great to meet you! Glad to see you've signed up for the A to Z Challenge! Its going to be a great time and an opportunity to meet lots of great people.

Welcome, Stephen! It's great to meet you, too. I'm really looking forward to the A-Z Challenge. Thanks for being one of the co-hosts - you all rock. :)

I did A to Z last year, and loved every minute of it. BUT, do pre-write as many posts as possible and don't put pressure on yourself to visit every entrant - it won't be possible. Someone suggested sticking to the next 100 blogs on the list after you and I think I will adopt the strategy this year.

Have fun!

Thanks for the tips, Ellie. And I admit, I feel overwhelmed already about visiting the other blogs. Coming up with some sort of plan will definitely help with that. :)
