So, you have your schedule, now what? Do as much prep work as possible BEFORE the challenge begins:

  • preload all your titles for the month with #atozchallenge somewhere in it
  • choose your theme, if you’re having one
  • download/upload the alphabets for the appropriate blog posts
  • try to write 3-5 blog posts prior to ¬†April 1 (that way you’ll have more time to have fun & visit other blogs)
  • when you DO sit down to write blog posts, try to write at least a day or two ahead, in case of emergencies (cuz they will come up)
  • keep your posts short
  • ¬†find a rhythm that works for you
  • read the A to Z blog for tips
  • reach out for help (Tweet me: @Pamlovesbooks)

I won’t schedule mine until the night before, but they are mostly written and formatted and ready to go. I can’t imagine coming up with something new every day.
Oh wait – I did that in the first Challenge. It was not fun.

Gulp. I couldn’t imagine committing to a challenge such as this at this time. With lesson planning and everything, I barely have time to blog a few times a week. It sounds like a good idea though.

I blog weekly M-F with at least 1 often 2 posts a day. i don’t have room in my editorial calendar to add a challenge of this magnitude on top of all I do. My posts are usually written several days in advance and scheduled. I use my “Future Posts Calendar” plug in to help keep things organized.
