Over the past few months, I’ve been saying that I more than likely wasn’t going to do the A to Z Blog Challenge this year. As you’ve probably guessed by the subject line of this post, I’ve changed my mind. Why do I keep doing this to myself each and every year? Because I love the challenge (no pun intended) of coming up with something fresh every day, and even more importantly…I’ve met some of the most fabulous people…ever…through the challenge in years past.
As usual, I’ve decided not to choose a theme and will be writing my posts each day instead of doing them in advance. Sometimes things like this show us different aspects of ourselves that we really do not give a lot of thought to on an every day basis. The challenge has shown me that I still have a touch of the risk taker who enjoys a slight rush of pressure induced adrenaline. It isn’t really such a surprise I guess because this has manifested itself in my life in many ways over the past year. I’ve been stepping outside of the lines and trying things I’ve never tried before.
For those of you who are not familiar with the challenge, it begins on April 1 and continues throughout the entire month. Follow this link to learn more and even sign up if you want to. Last year, I made the posts here and created a separate blog for the challenge after it was over and moved the posts over there and will do the same this year to make it easier for all of us. I’ll try to post as much regular content as possible while the challenge is going on as possible too so that things can be somewhat familiar around here. The content can get a little wacky in the month of April, because sometimes I admit that I grasp at straws to come up with something.
Now that I’ve made the decision to do it, I’m looking forward to it.
