Blogging from A to Z Challenge #atozchallenge

It’s the Blogging from A to Z Challenge !

A2Z-BADGE-000 [2014]

It’s time to start thinking about the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge! This is a chance for us to practice blogging every day for a month, visit other blogs, and general mayhem (well, at least on my end).  April is the most fun month of the year because of this challenge and I’m inviting YOU to ride along!

Here’s how it works:

Please read and follow the sign-up instructions outlined below so you sign onto the list correctly!  

The brainchild of Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out, the A to Z Challenge is posting every day in April except Sundays (we get those off for good behavior.) And since there are 26 days, that matches the 26 letters of the alphabet. On April 1, blog about something that begins with the letter “A.” April 2 is “B,” April 3 is “C,” and so on. You can use a theme for the month or go random – just as long as it matches the letter of the alphabet for the day.

We recommend short posts, turn off Word Verification, and visit five blogs (or more) a day beginning with the one after yours on the list.

To streamline legitimate blogs from advertisement blogs, the Co-Hosts will be visiting each blog on this list throughout the Challenge. Blogs on the list showing no activity once the Challenge starts will be removed.

There are categories for those looking for like-minded blogs. Select ONE category code and enter it after your blog’s title/name. The code applies to your blog, not your theme for the Challenge and is purely optional. However, if your blog has adult content, you MUST mark it (AC) or it will be removed from the list. Codes are as follows:

1. WRITING: (WR)
2. BOOKS: (BO)
3. FILM: (FM)
4. PHOTOGRAPHY: (PH)
5. GARDENING: (GR)
6. CRAFT: (CR)
7. ART: (AR)
8. MUSIC: (MU)
9. CULINARY: (CU)
10. LIFESTYLE: (LI )
11. FASHION: (FA)
12. PERSONAL: (PR)
13. SOCIAL MEDIA: (SO)
14. GAMING: (GA)
15. EDUCATION: (ED)
16. POLITICS: (PO)
17. HISTORY: (HI)
18. SCIENCE: (SC)
19. HUMOR: (HU)
20. TRAVEL: (TR)
21. MISCELLANEOUS: (MI)
22. ADULT CONTENT: (AC)

Be sure to grab the badge and display it in your sidebar so we know you are participating and link to the A to Z Blog.  (http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/)

and the Twitter hashtag is #AtoZChallenge.

Sign up below and join us for a month of alphabet fun!

My blogging theme is always books (duh), but I’m challenging myself even more and only highlighting middle grade books.  Last year I featured Young Adult books and the year before that, all books for kids.  Other bloggers write about life, love, adult content, or whatever they like.  Hundreds of bloggers participate; it’s a great way to make new friends, eat cake, and discover other great blogs to read.

Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?  Why not join me and participate in the challenge?

Good morning! I love the blog. It’s nice to “meet” a kindred soul. (My Twitter handle is @bibliophile1970)!! I’m so excited about this year’s #AtoZChallenge!! Sooooo…I’ll get right to the point – One of the suggestions for blogging success was to become a co-host’s minion. Well, I’m here to fill that vacancy and be your Aide-de-Camp, your Gal Friday, and your Right Hand Man. I’m up for it! I hope to hear back from you soon. My blog is over at http://www.tammypetry.blogspot.com. I’m still reorganizing things but I think you can still get a taste of my style. Happy Monday!

So glad to have you on the Team this year. You’ve been really pitching in so far and we appreciate that.

What kind of cake do you prefer?

Hi Pam! Found my way here from the A to Z challenge. Your theme was Young Adult books last yr? I think I may have to shuffle through your archives!

This will be my first attempt at A to Z so I’m not sure if i can fit mine into a theme. Hopefully co-hosts like yourself will have some great advice for this newbie šŸ™‚
