  9. Definitely an adventure. My first time ever trying out this challenge so it'll be interesting to see what kind of things we can all come up with to blog about. :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. An abundance of adventures awaits us all. So many blogs so little time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Alex, Arlee, and All (like all those "A" words? ;)) - yes, this does feel like the beginning of a great adventure!

    Good luck to us all!

    Best,
    Barbara

  13. Looking forward to this adventure!

  14. I hate to admit it but I nearly gave up last night.. wanted to ditch lame theme, change all my posts, even ones I hadn't written.. etc. etc. It's definitely an adventure and we're only on A.. enjoy everyone!

  15. Can't wait to get this challenge under way!

  18. I thought the idea was short blogs, I seem to be finding blogs with reams of information.

  21. Things aren't starting out too well. Visited 4 folks so far. 2 have the captcha thing on, 2 haven't written a post...sure hope things get better.

    I agree with the above commentor, J.L.Campbell...I also couldn't read your post. I used control and + multiple times to get it large enough that the black was visible on the dark gray background. I assume both he and I are older then you. Young eyes might see your blog; but it's very difficult. Hope you'll consider lightening your background so you don't discourage reader from the a-z challenge. I had no clue and @...use it very little and actually really disliked English in school so probably closed out anything I might have learned about it, lol.

    sorry for the cut and paste url, but you don't have a place for name and url. The generic google doesn't work well for folks with multiple blogs.

  24. Well, this should be interesting! (I used the word adventure buuut I started writing the post before I saw this one!)

  25. Happy A - Z Day! Thanks, Arlee for creating this amazing challenge! Thanks Team for all you do to make it awesome! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I took part (and survived) the A-Z last year and it had some rather unexpected results, being indirectly the catalyst for the publication of my book. I would recommend taking part to everyone, thank you.

  27. Yippiee! I hope I survice till the end!

  31. What fun! I have already found so many interesting "A's" to read.

    ReplyDelete
  32. i am still looking for the list of participants haha---a little lost and behind this year--but ready for the fun :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. It's about time too! I have been waiting what feel like forever for the challenge to start. Last week just dragged on. LOL

    Good luck everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Adventure, you say?

    Bring it on, I say! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Bring on the adventure!

    One thing I have noticed is that most people are not too worried about the length of their blog posts during the challenge. I seem to be over worried about the length of my posts - I probably need to work on that.

  36. Woohoo! I'm ready for this awesome adventure. I'm enjoying all of the posts I've seen so far!

  38. Do I need my Indiana Jones Whip on this adventure?

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's day 1 and I'm feeling frustration already because a lot of the blogs I've visited today haven't put up their A posts, or they put up a non-related A-Z post instead of A, or it's a link to garbage. :(

    ReplyDelete
  40. Excited to be on this adventure with so many wonderful people in blogland. God bless, Maria from Delight Directed Living

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm excited to try this out. 'Adventure' is right - very curious to see what mental muscles it requires to blog on one theme for an entire month!

    ReplyDelete
  42. So what you're really saying is that today is Indiana Jones day, because adventure has a name.

    I got today covered, then.

    ReplyDelete
  43. This is definitely going to be an adventure! I hope I come on on the other side!

    25 more letters to go :)

  46. Giving it all a run this year! On the theme of worldbuilding. 'Adventure' would have been a great 'A' for that. Very curious to see what mental muscles the month-long theme can stretch.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm so glad I didn't miss the challenge this year - it really will be a blogging adventure! I'm featuring the A to Z of my massive post card collection.

    But I'm really looking forward to seeing what other people post for their letters. I like the idea of delving into one topic in sufficient depth to get 26 posts out of it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. YAY! I'm off to read a bunch of blogs. I can't wait to see what's in store for me!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Definitely looking forward to this Amazingly Awesome Adventure!!! Many thanks for hosting this and the hard work that each of you are putting into maintaining it! As difficult as it is for us bloggers, it is at least thrice as time-consuming for you guys!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Looking forward to this adventure! Took me till 11 to finish my first post, here's hoping the rest are up earlier =) Thanks for starting this!

  65. Having a lot of trouble commenting on many blogs with my OpenID. The blog isn't on blogger or Wordpress, but self-hosted WP. I had to create an alternate Google/Blogger account just to comment HERE! (Many of the blogs generate "missing URL" errors.)

    Anyway, I used today's letter lots today. Tomorrow I'll just post a regular feature but stick with the alphabet. I do real estate posts, so I just pick a neighborhood or city that fits the letter of the day.

    X will need something else.

  67. I love that! Adventure. It makes it seem almost doable.

    ReplyDelete
  68. What an AMAZING start. I had checked the numbers earlier yesterday and they were just at 1800.... Now almost 2000 WOW!

    It is fun but a challenge. I am thrilled to know that blogger will post a scheduled post even if you are not connected to wifi.... YAYYYYYYY!!!!!!

    Thanks for your support and dropping by L. Diane. Love seeing your smiling face!
