Pre-challenge challenge...

Thanks for stopping by! Our goal here at the main A-Z blog is to keep the momentum building for the April event, and to entice as many bloggers to join us as possible! That's where YOU come in. We need your help to spread the word. The most successful blogging events (and viral videos, and memes of all sorts) start, and build, with word of mouth. Nothing like a good, ole' fashioned, “Did you HEAR about...?” To go a step further, we're inviting our followers to also be contributors.

Sound interesting?
Ok, so the nitty-gritty. If you'd like to contribute a post to this blog, just write it! Email me your file, along with the date you'd like it to be posted.  I'll send it to the team for approval, then schedule it in. If anyone is already set up for the day you're wanting, we'll see what can be worked out.

We're looking forward to seeing what you'd like to contribute! You can email me directly:
tndowney at gmail dot com with any questions or concerns.

It's going to be a great year!


P.S FYI, I respond to all comments via email.  If you don't have that feature enabled in your profile, consider doing so.  While many of us co-hosts respond in the comments, there are also a large number of bloggers out there who use email.  Another option for you if you don't want to reveal your email every-time you comment, you could list it on your blog profile, in disguise like I did above.


  1. Great call for participation, Tina. I concur with this post: Send us your articles and ideas! We've got some great ones coming up this week. Tomorrow--Alana from Writercize.

    We'll be looking for your post! And even if you've already had a reflections post or something else put up, if you have a really good idea or some inspirational encourage for other participants, send it in.

    Thanks all--isn't Tina great!


  2. I'm joining again this year and will spread the word on my blog, FB and twitter.

  11. Is it known yet if Sunday 4/1 will be the first post day? Since April 2012 has 5 Sundays I guess one of them will have to be a post day - and I can prep better if I know how the calendar of posts is meant to go?

  12. Yes, the Challenge for 2012 will begin on April 1. The following Sundays will all be off days.


  13. Oooh this sounds fun! Looking forward to giving it a go :)
