Despite a bit of a glitch with the Linky list on Friday night to Saturday, the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge of 2012 is off to a huge start. Over 300 sign ups on opening day! Captain Alex has been fixing the list whenever fixing has needed to be done so we have a purer list to work from once April comes. Please let us know if your list information is incorrect and needs to be fixed. Also, if you run across a link that is bad let us know so Alex can fix it.
Today we'd like to pay tribute to some super bloggers. A number of you have helped give the A to Z Challenge an extra boost with your guest posts on this blog as well as posts on your own blogs.
Here are a few of the fantastic A to Z promoting blogs that have been brought to my attention:
Teresa at Journaling Woman gave a textbook presentation of how to do the A to Z Challenge. This is an outstanding post that you should check out.
Inky the Hamster Mommy gave the Challenge a nice plug the weekend before sign-ups began. If you want to see what a niche blog is all about, you need to take a look at Inky's place. You might end up getting diverted for awhile playing with the cute little hamster.
A new entrant to the Challenge is Aimee Kay from How Can You Help?. In keeping with her blog name she's helping out by promoting the Challenge. Check out Aimee's blog for relevant ways to help in your community.
Now whenever I hear someone say "Whatever", I'll be thinking of the Gossip Girl since Whatever is the name of her blog. She also gave A to Z a shout-out and that's all fact and not gossip. Well, Whatever! Hmm, I like that.
Shay from Seriously--WTH? joined in the list debut day celebrations with a rousing call to blog action. Thank you, Shay!
More stirring words came on a debut day post from Jamie at Mithril Wisdom. Jamie will be a guest on the A to Z Blog this coming Thursday.
Also spreading the news about A to Z was Heather M. Gardner at The Waiting Is the Hardest Part.
We also appreciate the nod given to the Challenge by Beth Stilborn at On Writing, Reading, the Arts, and Life.
I'm sure I've missed more of your promo blogs for the April Challenge. I'm trying to keep my eyes open to catch as many as I can. I want you to know that we appreciate everything each of you are doing to let more bloggers know what will be happening in April of 2012. Keep on spreading the news!
