Promise you won’t laugh at me, okay? Starting next month, I will be participating for the second year in a row in the annual A to Z Challenge. What’s that, you ask? Well, you’ve come to the right place.
It’s really very simple. You start on April 1st by publishing a post with a topic beginning with the letter “A,” and post each day of the month, except for Sundays, all the way to the letter “Z” on April 30th.
Here is where you can find badges and the sign up sheets for the challenge. I hope you will consider participating. It really is a lot of fun.
One aspect of the A to Z Challenge is the opportunity to declare a theme. This theme can be anything from horror, sci-fi, humor, fantasy, photography, politics, mental health — well, you get it — anything.
But I’m not really a planner. My blog is a rather spontaneous, makeshift affair. I have, therefore made the bold decision to not declare a theme for my A to Z Challenge posts. I will wing it, waking up each day during April to come up with an appropriate post topic for the letter of the day.
That said, I will try to maintain fidelity to my mission statement for my blog: to write posts that reflect my personal observations and perspectives on life, society, and politics, and to, where appropriate, to infuse my posts with humor.
If you’re interested in reading any of my A to Z Challenge posts from last year, just go to where I list my “Topics of Interest” listing on my blog and click on the “A to Z Challenge” link.
