Blogging from A to Z Challenge
The Blogging from A to Z Challenge was created by a group of enthusiastic bloggers who manage the website and event. The basic idea is to write a daily blog post for 26 days during April (you get Sundays off), with each day featuring a letter of the alphabet. Your posts may follow a theme or be random. Since I'm also joining RhyPiBoMo (see above), I've decided to incorporate that into my blogging challenge. So each day I'll share a poem that features that day's assigned letter of the alphabet. Not only will I work on a new habit of blogging frequently and writing consistently, but I'll also get the word out about my blog. More traffic equals more followers, which equals more friends! If you'd like to participate, here's the link to the registration page. And don't be intimidated by the enormous number of participants. (I'm number 1,503 right now!) You are only asked to visit a minimum of 5 other blog posts a day!
