The 2014 A-to-Z Blogging Challenge…


My favorite thing this week is announcing that it is almost time for the annual A-Z Blogging Challenge. If you have a favorite post of the week you would like to share, stop by…


It is almost time for the annual A-to-Z Blogging Challenge. This year will be the fourth year of participation for me and I am excited to be serving as an ambassador this time around.








What is the A-to Z Blogging Challenge?

The short explanation is to write a blog post every day except Sunday during the month of April on a coordinating letter of the alphabet. Day one is a topic starting with the letter A, day 2 is on the letter B and so forth. The topic of each post can be whatever you desire to write about, you can even choose a theme for the entire month.

There are more than 1000 participants, many more, so you are encouraged to visit a few other participants each day and to leave comments. I have made cherished friendships during this challenge.

The official explanation is…

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 letter A, 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.

See how easy it is.  You don’t have to change your format of what you normally write, just come up with topics that correspond with the letter of the day.   I printed out a calendar grid for the month of April and x’ed out the Sundays and wrote the letters in each of the daily squares.  In less than an hour I came up with all of my topics for each letter.  And I can change them if I want to.  It’s fun just filling in the 26 topics and imagining the possibilities.

Or what if you have a photo blog or just post artwork?  It still works the same–creativity is creativity no matter what you do.  Post your images and create an A to Z format for them.

So are you up to the challenge?  Do you have what it takes?  Even if you start and don’t finish that’s fine. Or will you just support us and pledge to follow our challenge?  Mention it on your blog and link back to this post.  We will appreciate all of the support we can get.
