A to Z Blogging Challenge


Oh, my God. I can’t believe I’m doing this.
But, I am. I’m MAKING myself do it, actually.

Because I want to be a better communicator. Because I want to be a better writer. Because I think I can come up with at least 26 ways that we can improve ourselves and the world around us. Because I believe that no matter how talented or gifted we may be in a particular area, there is always room for improvement. And, believe me, I know I can improve in my writing abilities. And one way we writers can get better is to, of course, write.  A lot.

So, for the entire month of April, I am going to join hundreds of other bloggers in the great blogosphere and commit to writing a post everyday – for 26 days (weekends excluded) – one for each letter of the alphabet. Don’t worry, I already have my list of blog titles ALMOST completed! (At least I have my theme!)

So, be sure and sign up to receive updates on my blog so you don’t miss a single post. And, if you’d like to join me, just head over to the sidebar and add your name to the “Blog Hop” list.

And then get ready to WRITE!

  4. I do the Blogher NaBloPoMo where you write a post EVERY day, although I pretty much suck at it. But I AM getting better! I do think THIS is a FANTASTIC challenge though. A post for EACH letter of the Alphabet! How unique! I believe I shall try it too!

    1. PAM! Thanks so much for stopping by! (See, I'm just not as funny as Lynn. But, I've long since decided to leave that stuff to the pros - of which she is definitely one!) I am so nervous now that I have posted to the world (all 13 members of it....) that I am doing this challenge (breathe in deeply. hold. exhale.) OK, I'm much better now. I really think this is a great idea, and am trying to get myself in gear so I don't freak out around, oh, April 6th or something. (Oh, who am I kidding? There will be freaking out, and plenty of it, I'm sure). Here's to good writing - can't wait to see your posts!
