The A to Z Blogging Challenge

An online writing buddy, Marie Anne, found The A to Z Blogging Challenge and threw down the gauntlet. Many people have joined the challenge to ramp up their blogging frequency. I’m just learning how to blog, so figuring out the frequency hasn’t hit my radar yet.

But so many interesting people have signed up, and it looks like an ideal time for me to learn from cool and seasoned bloggers so…. yeah. I’m going to run before I walk.

Here’s the skinny: there are 26 letters in the alphabet and there are 26 days in April (excluding Sundays). The challenge is to blog Monday – Saturday. The blog post must correspond to the letter in the alphabet that falls on that day (i.e., April 1 = A, April 2 = B, etc.). This requires a 6-day per week blog post commitment during the entire month.

I am goal-oriented so this seems like a great way to jump in. Since I have two blogs, I may toggle between them but I am 100% committed to posting to at least one of the blogs every day. If you want to follow along, I’ll be blogging here and at Langley Writes about her rich & random life.

And if you want to sign up a blog and join in the fun, click the The A to Z Blogging Challenge button below. 

See, I'd put that badge in this post if I knew how. Yikes, I've got a lot of crawling to do before I walk or run!


  1. To add the A-Z widget to your blog, go back to the sign-up blog and look for the code beneath the widget. Copy that then go to 'design' here on your blog, then figure out where you want to put it and click 'add a gadget'.

    Scroll down a bit and click on 'HTML/Java Script' then paste the code in that box and save. Piece of cake.

  2. Thanks Marie Anne! See, the challenge hasn't even started and I'm already learning new things.
