A To Z Blogging Challenge... In The Not Too Distant Future

If you only read my blog via Google reader then you will not have noticed the A To Z Blogging Challenge badge over on the right... so not all of you will know about it.

The A To Z Blogging Challenge is back and you can now sign up for it - but wait until you've finished reading this or you might get sidetracked and never come back... :(

Anyway the challenge is that throughout April you blog every day about a different letter of the alphabet. Most participants go from A to Z but some mix it up and go from Z to A. But you do one post each day - a different letter everyday.

Now because there are not enough letters of the alphabet to have a post every single day of April you don't post on Sundays.

Now this is where it gets a tiny bit complicated. You don't post on Sundays except when the month starts on a Sunday... this year it does just that. So you don't post on Sundays except on Sunday 1st April - do a post then.

Did that make sense? No well tootle over to A To Z Challenge and all the information is there including useful posts on how to survive.

I think I may be mad taking part as on my other blog I am currently taking part in Sally Q's 100k In 100 Days which doesn't end until 9th April... and writing blog posts for your own blog doesn't count towards your total. So I'll have 9000 words (and no doubt more) to write for that and then 8 posts for the challenge!

And this year I've decided to try and be truly random. Last year I ranted and raved about things I liked and things I didn't. But they were all things I wrote down as they came to me.

This year I'm going to sit down to write a post and the first thing that comes in to my head when I think of the letter in question will be what I write about (OK so if it's something really boring I might opt for the second thing to come in to my head).

So go and sign up... and start preparing today!

Wow. Blogging everyday. I used to be able to do that. Now, I'm lucky if I get one in in a week. With the pregnancy sucking out my energy, and the editing sucking out my brain cells...anyway, good luck with the challenge. :)

(But who knows, maybe I'll get crazy enough to sign up. We'll see. :D )

I found you via A to Z a little early wondering. I started blogging with this challenge. I am looking forward to reading more and getting to know you.
