Okay…I’ve Done It Now

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.

  1. YAY!!! I so look forward to your posts and being part of A to Z!! Woo hoo! And you're not scheduling any of them, you're very brave. I did that my first time around and it was a lot of fun but the scheduling option does come in handy in a pinch!:)

  2. Sure is Rosemary šŸ™‚ Funny you say that, because I felt that way as soon as I put my link up on the challenge site. I really wavered about doing it this year. Now to see if I am brave enough to do NanoWriMo this November…skipped it last year lol. ā¤

  3. Thanks MiMi! Can't wait to see yours too. Not saying that I won't schedule any of them but going to try to do as little of that as possible. Should be interesting though because I've got several people talking about coming to visit in April to which I say oh f*&#, I am a masochist lol.

  4. I'm still struggling with topics for D, H and J. Now I need to start drafting them. I like to have stuff done in advance cause I'm really weird that way.

  5. Hiya JoJo! That isn't weird at all. Some people are planners and some people are fly by the seat of their pants…and I belong to the latter group lol. Maybe I'm the weird one. Newsflash there eh? šŸ˜‰ Looking forward to reading your posts.
