The A to Z Blog Challenge

There's going to be a whole lot of alphabetical fun happening in the blogosphere in April. Yep, it's time for the 2nd annual A to Z Blogging Challenge. The challenge is the brainchild of Arlee Bird, who writes the Tossing it Out blog. Here’s his explanation of how it works:

“The premise of the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge is to post something on your blog every day in April except for Sundays. In doing this you will have 26 blog posts--one for each letter of the alphabet. Each day you will theme your post according to a letter of the alphabet. You will only be limited by your own imagination in this challenge. There is an unlimited universe of possibilities. You can post essays, short pieces of fiction, poetry, recipes, travel sketches, or anything else you would like to write about. You don't have to be a writer to do this. You can post photos, including samples of your own art or craftwork. Everyone who blogs can post from A to Z.”

I thought this sounded like a fun thing to try. (As of this writing, so did 817 other bloggers, up considerably from 100 last year.) I didn't participate last year, so I'm not exactly sure what I'll be posting, but I hope you’ll follow along for the month of April. Other local blogs participating in the challenge are Patricia Stoltey, Hearth Cricket, Beads and Books, and The Writing Bug. If you know of more, please leave a comment.
