Blogging From A to Z Challenge 2013 is HERE!
Hey people. The A to Z Challenge sign up list is open. I threw myself on there and plan to participate this year. It will be my second year doing the challenge. Last year I entered my old blog on a whim, and it really inspired me to focus my blogging and writing efforts.
A to Z (is what I call it), is a great way to jump start your creativity and to gain new readers. I don't know how many people participated last year, but I estimate that it was about a fuck-load (which equals about two and a half metric shit-tons).
For those of you who don't know what this is all about, the basic premise of A to Z is post every day during the month of April, except Sundays. (You can read all about it by clicking on the picture above, the badge to your right, or here.) You can post something each day (if you're one of those types), or you can pre-write your posts and schedule them (if you're my type). You can write about anything you want. Have a theme, be random, pictures, words, whatever. Then you blog hop around and meet new people.
One new thing they started this year was to allow categories for blogs. In past years it's been kind of a hodge-podge, and you really never knew what you were going to get when you clicked on a link. I kind of like that. However, I signed myself up as a writing blog, but since I have put very little thought into what I'm going to actually post about, I'm probably going to deviate from the script.
Are you going to A to Z this year?
