It's official. Today marks Day 13 of 26 for the A-Z Challenge. We are half-way, and I would venture to guess that if you're still reading this, then you haven't given up, and are in this thing for the duration.
KUDOS to you! It's not easy. There's a lot to balance, a lot of blogs to visit, and (we hope) a lot of comments to return because you've been out there spreading The Force of your amazing participation!
So here's my advice for the day. Use The Force, Luke. Clear your mind of all distractions. Focus on your objective. Let The Force guide you.
Not a Star Wars fan? That's OK. We can still be friends. What I'm talking about is letting the collective energy generated by thousands of bloggers still at this give you energy, and purpose, and stamina, and drive to see it through. Don't try to go it alone.
If you're feeling like quitting, contact a blogging buddy, a co-host, a minion (boy do we love our minions!) and reach out for help. Some of you remember Leia's plea, "Help me Obi-Wan, you're my only hope!" Send a distress signal to a friend.
You CAN do it. You've made it this far. It's not J any more, but I'm also quite fond of the movie "Finding Nemo", so even though it doesn't fit alphabetically here, I will also say, "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming."
One day at a time, one post at a time. The Force, and this community, will be with you.
~Tina, fond of quoting movies, and ready to give you a pep talk if you need one. See contact tab for my email.
Where's the sign-up List?
For the 2017 Challenge we're trying something new--no Linky List! So if you're looking for a list--stop now. It's really not so bad. Now you'll have many options for discovering participant blogs--blogs that are actually participating in the Challenge.
