Around the Alphabet in Thirty Days

A to Z BLOGFEST – click sidebar button for more ‘A to Z’ers

B: A to Z Blogfest

A-Z April[1]Today is day two of the A to Z blogfest, replete with over 900 – yes 900 – bloggers.  For those two or three of you out there who might not have heard about it, it’s a blogfest hosted by Arlee Bird at Tossing it Out, as well as several other cohosts.  The challenge is to write a post every day in April save Sundays, and each post has to do with a different letter of the alphabet starting with A and continuing southward to Z.  Today is ‘B,’ so there you go.

I had planned to write all the posts in advance and pre-schedule them, so all I’d have to do is try to read and comment on 900 posts a day.  But you know what they say about the best laid plans.  I’m not giving up though.  Barring an unforeseen crisis, there will be 26 posts, and they will keep to the directory posted yesterday.  Unless I change my mind.

Also, speaking of crazy things to do with your time in April, good luck to everyone who’s decided to do NaNo’s April counterpart: write a screenplay in a month.  I’ve written (bad) screenplays, and churning one out in a month is no easy feat.


  1. Hi,

    Mine are totally off-the-cuff, written evening before morning of posting. ;)

    Fun this, ain't it? For the moment!


  2. I have all but 2 letters scheduled, but fortunately they are later in the alphabet. I'm going to try to finish them this weekend so I don't forget about them...

    There's no way I could have made the rounds and written up my posts, simply due to other non-blogging time constraints. I can barely make the rounds as it is! :)

  3. Ah yes, I'm in the mist of one of those best laid plans :)

  4. Well, I'm not taking the challenge, but I'm definitely interested in the result with all of you. I might chime in a day or two. Especially on the last with Z. Have fun, but rest at least a little. ; )

  5. Blogfest indeed! There are now 1180 blogs signed up for the challenge.

    (Oh, the link to challenge in your sidebar doesn't work; I think you left out the : after the http or somesuch).

    Popping in by way of the A-Z Challenge. I’m blogging at:

  6. Just stopped by from the A-Z Challenge!!

  7. I heard about the challenge on the radio here in NJ and figured what the heck! I do not have the time to read & comment on all the a to z bloggers but I promise to click the "surprise me" button and get to some each day!

  8. The real challenge is to get around to 1180 bloggers once. Good luck if you write a screen play in a month.
