A-Z Blogging Challenge, Minions & #VPK

Monday, January 25, 2016

Psst! It's that time of year already. Did I hear you asking what time? Well, the A to Z Blogging Challenge will return in April and it's time to sign up and start planning. 

The brainchild of Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out, the A to Z Challenge consists of posting every day in April except Sundays (we get those off for good behavior.) And since there are 26 days, that matches the 26 letters of the alphabet. On April 1, blog about something that begins with the letter “A.” April 2 is “B,” April 4 is “C,” and so on. You can use a theme for the month or go random – just as long as it matches the letter of the alphabet for the day. 

The A to Z Challenge is a great way to get into the blogging habit and make new friends. For more details and its history, go HERE.

Hop over to the site to sign up and get additional information about the challenge. 

I'm on the hunt for some industrious individuals to help me check a section of the sign-up list during the challenge. If you're game, leave me a message in the comments or email me at jmwordsmith at gmail dot com. Thanks!





Apart from the A-Z Challenge, I have other exciting news. It's drawing ever closer to the release date of the Valentine Pets & Kisses Boxed set. Fourteen talented writers have produced this collaboration of sweet romance novellas, each with a cuddly pet. Pre-order yours before the price goes up!

    1. Yup, it does take up a fair amount of time. The trick is to plan ahead.

  4. Yay for A to Z! I'd sign up to help but I'm taking a blogging break in April to focus on everything else that needs my attention. Have fun with it! :)

  7. The Valentine Pets & Kisses set is SO cute! I hope it's a big success. Trying to make up my mind about the A-Z. I swore I wasn't going to do it again but then it has a way of pulling me in LOL.

  8. I've signed up just this morning. I'm so excited... though I feel so behind with preparation.
    This will be my second year. Last year, I thought I woulnd't make it when I was halfway through the month, because I came to a point I was writing in the morning what I posted at night. This year I hope to have all my posts ready when I start. Let's hope. So I'll be free to just networl :-)

    1. Hey, Sara. Thanks for visiting. Yes, it makes sense to try and get some of the posts done early. It makes life a lot easier.
