Welcome to the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge Blog
Now the A to Z Challenge has a home of its own. The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge began on my other blog Tossing It Out in 2010 with nearly 100 participants. In 2011 the Challenge grew to nearly 1300 participants. Who knows what 2012 will bring?
Why did I create a second blog devoted to the A to Z Challenge? In one word: Focus.
Tossing It Out is my personal blog devoted to writing, blogging, and eclecticism. There I write about anything from A to Z. That blog is my potpourri blog. I did not want Tossing It Out to become overly obsessed with the A to Z Challenge.
The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is a topic in and of itself that fills a particular niche. The real excitement will begin in January of 2012 and will build into a crescendo until the event explodes on the blogging scene of April 2012.
Between now and the January announcement that will open the A to Z sign-ups I will be posting news updates about the Challenge. I will also rerun some of the A to Z posts from Tossing It Out that might be of particular interest to those of you who are new to the Challenge. I also welcome guest posts from previous A to Z participants who would like to share their experiences in the Challenge.
This will be the official blog for the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. Keep an eye on the posts here. I will try to keep them interesting and helpful. For now, there will be one post per week each Tuesday. I hope you will click on the Friend Connect button in the sidebar or subscribe to the blog so you will receive updates.
Please feel free to offer suggestions as to what you think would make this site better. I look forward to any feedback that you may have to give.
For now I've called the followers "Friends of the Alphabet". Do you like that designation? Is there another title you think might be better?
