On Wednesday’s I like to share information I picked up on my path to publishing, marketing and preparing to publish again. Information that I wish someone would have shared with me, back then.
Some bloggers love them and others think they are a useless waste of time. 4-years- ago, when I was a brand new blogger I thought it would be a good idea to try one. The A-Z April Blogging Challenge was started in 2010 by Los Angeles Blogger, Arlee Bird. http://tossingitout.blogspot.com/
I was definitely stressed out that first April. Blogging every single day was definitely a challenge but I also had a lot of fun. Better than the fun was meeting so many other bloggers, learning that reading and commenting on other blogs and writing fabulous content was the only way to grow my readers and that writing a post every day was good exercise.
It was also pretty handy to have 26- blog posts in the pipeline that could be expanded on and used in the future.
Some participants challenge themselves further by choosing a theme. Last year because I was writing The Stranger In My Recliner, my theme was homelessness.
This year I will announce my theme along with other participants on March 2st.
So, could you post every day except Sundays during the month of April? To up the bar, can you blog thematically from A to Z?
If you are up to the challenge we would love to have you join us.

Also happening in April is the 2016 BAM Conference. I am looking forward to spending time with a group of the most fabulous bloggers and I am so excited to be speaking this year! For more information:
