As February edges to a close, in the blogosphere talk turns again to the A-Z Blogging Challenge. For those who don't know what the challenge is about here's the background from the Challenge's founder, Arlee Bird:
It all began with my post from Saturday March 27, 2010 when I set forth a challenge to all bloggers for the month of April. Can you post every day except Sundays during this month? And to up the bar, can you blog thematically from A to Z?
Most of the time if you subtract Sundays from April, you then have 26 days--one day for each letter of the alphabet. When April 1st lands on a Sunday you begin on that day which will be the only Sunday you would post during that month's challenge.
Using this premise, you would start beginning April First with a topic themed on something with the letterA, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until you finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z. It doesn't even have to be a word--it can be a proper noun, the letter used as a symbol, or the letter itself. The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day.
For the full story, see the A-Z Blogging Challenge's "About" page.
I've taken part in the challenge a number of times, and I will be again this year. It's a lot of fun, and a great way to meet new bloggers.
My theme? You're going to have to wait until March 21 for that, the date of the offical theme reveal blog hop.
Let me know if you're taking part in the challenge this year, and I'll be sure to check out your theme reveal post and posts throught April.
Until next time,
