A-Z Blogging Challenge

Last April Arlee Bird set up a magnificent blogfest. I was so excited to hear the was planning to enjoy the fun once again! This time a few extras are going to help out to make this the best blogging challenge around!

Talli Roland, Alex Cavanaugh, Arlee Bird, and Myself.

It's simple. There are 26 letters in the alphabet. There are 26 days in April (if you take out Sundays). You would blog Monday - Saturday writing a blogpost with the appropriate letter for that day. April 1 - A, April 2 - B, etc., etc.

So you wanna join in the fun (you know you do)? Join the link and grab a badge because April is going to be the time of your life!!!

A-Z Blogging Challenge will take over the blog! As a blogfest participant in the past I know how easy it is to forget to sign up so I will be sure to give you all warning before the first post begins. So don't hesitate to sign up now! You don't want to miss this!!

Jayne said...

I've gone for it, Jen! AGH! EEK! I really enjoyed people's entries last year though and was sad to have missed it. 26 days of awesome, here I come!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I remember this from last year. It was a lot of fun reading all the entries. :D

Katie Mills said...

oh this brings back memories! This was going on when I first joined the blogosphere last year!

Bish Denham said...

You know, I was thinking of doing this anyway, on my own, just cause I liked doing it. So I've signed up! YEAH!

Jessica Bell said...

Signed up. Gonna do my own personal alliteration challenge again too :o)

Hannah Kincade said...

Okay so of course I'm going to sign up because I was really bummed I didn't do it last year but as I said on Talli's blog, it's January. I'm still trying to get through the last half of six months of winter! Fingers crossed there's no snow on the ground when this begins!

Arlee Bird said...

Great start, Jen! In just a few short hours as I write this we have 25 signed up. Your post was a great call to action.

And to all of you who plan to watch from the sidelines, if you are there anyway you might as well join in and participate in the challenge. It not as difficult as it sounds, if that's what you're thinking. Sign up today!

Laura Marcella said...

I had just started blogging 3 days before April last year (I didn't know what blogfests were in those days, lol.) and I remember seeing this and thinking it was pretty cool. So I'm excited to be able to participate this year!

Whoop whoop! I'm so excited for this - it's going to be EPIC!

salarsenッ said...

Question: what if we miss a day. I don't blog every day. Hmm...could we combine days?? Or is that not cool?

Either way, I'll post your badge on my blog!

Summer Ross said...

Oh what a neat idea! I have you posted up on my blogfest page.

Annikka Woods said...

Not like I don't already have other blog posts to do but...what the heck. I'll go for it. Sounds like fun, Jen. And motivation for me to be more creative. LOL

This is so cool! I signed up. It's been a long time since I visited your blog, and I love the design. I'm back posting, but with a new blog so come by and check it out. Happy Wednesday!

Lindsay N. Currie said...

I think I'm going for it:)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Over fifty already! This is going to be a blast. Glad Lee asked for help - three hundred would do him in!

Lenny Lee* said...

...hugs from lenny

Kimberly Franklin said...

Such a good idea. I don't think I could ever post that much in one month, but I can't wait to see everyone else's posts!

Donea Lee said...

Saw this over on Talli's blog - I'm in! Hope I can keep up! How do you luck out with all these cool blogfest hosting gigs??? :)

Amy Saia said...

Really cool idea Jen!

Sondrae Bennett said...

That sounds really challenging! I'm not gonna lie, I'm not sure I could do that! But I'll look forward to reading all your posts.

Lydia K said...

Ohhh, is this what was going on last year? I started blogging in the middle and wondered what it was all about!

Colene Murphy said...

Awesomely nutty idea!! Looks fun! Can't wait to read them all!

Adrienne said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love finding new blogs to follow! :)

T. Anne said...

Oh this is SO SO cool! I have to give this some major thought/plotting! Can't wait!

Melissa said...

I need to think about this one because April is the time of final papers and exams for me.... I need to figure out how much stuff I can get done ahead of time!

Jennifer Hillier said...

Oooh, what a fun challenge! I already know I'd flunk it, though. I'm lucky if I can post twice a week these days...

But I'll definitely be rooting everybody on!

Her highness, Samantha Vérant said...

I'll give it a go. Whether I will succeed or not; that is the question.

Cari said...

Oh, man, thanks for this! I signed up and excited to do it. I've already started to collect blog ideas. :)

Guinevere said...

I loved doing this last year, really want to do it again - I just have to figure out if I can manage it with my final semester of grad school at the same time! I finish at the end of april!

Ann said...

Well it seems I have entered twice. Didn't realize the list was connected to all your blogs. Big red face! Wanted to delete last entry but am afraid I will only mess things up more! Big red face getting redder!

Eliza said...

I'll give it a go :-)

li said...

I'm a newbie, and I've been skulking about afraid to sign up but...here goes.

Cleveland Dietz II said...

Sure, I'll give it a shot.

JH said...

Sounds like fun!

Trisha said...

My mind is BOGGLED right now with the size of this participant list ;)

bendedspoon said...

I'm excited! I'm scared! I'm yeehaw! Mixed feelings you know with leap of faith. Glad I stumble upon this and hopefully I can release whatever is this jiggly feeling inside of me this whole month of April. Goodluck and blessings everyone :)

Langley said...

I'm super excited about this. Thanks for setting a productive course for this newbie blogger. My head is spinning, full of ideas. Let's get this party started!

Hi everyone, it's great to be here. I need to catch up.

Stuart said...

I probably should have read about "signing up" before I got started. :)

Anyway, I'm at 'X' now... thanks for the idea to do this. :)
