The 2015 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge Team!

And the 2015 A to Z Team is...

...okay, well, technically the team is already up and running right now in 2014, so telling you it's the 2015 team is kinda/sorta misleading.

So, it's actually the 2014/2015 A to Z Team.

Maybe I should explain...take too long...let me sum up. :)

As the A to Z Challenge grows by leaps and bounds each year so does the list of A to Z Team Members.

There's a lot of behind the scenes work, that I won't bore you with, but just know that we need lots of great bloggers to organize such an amazing Challenge.

So, without further ado, here is your new A to Z Team line-up...

The Founder
Arlee Bird

The Veterans
Alex J. Cavanaugh
Jeremy Hawkins 
Stephen Tremp
Nicole Ayers
Matthew MacNish (Returning)

The Staff Members
AJ Lauer
Pam Margolis
Heather M. Gardner

The Brave New Members
C. Lee McKenzie
S. L. Hennessy
Zalka Csenge
Susan Gourley
Lisa Buie-Collard
J.L. Campbell
John Holton

What a fantastic group of people!

Make sure to visit the A to Z Main Challenge Blog frequently to keep up with all the latest and greatest updates about our next Challenge and to meet some of these new members as they post on the blog!

Also, don't forget, all of these awesome people are going to need ambassadors/minions/helpers/assistants/teams/whooligans/alliances and/or sidekicks.

If you're interested in helping out the greatest Blog Challenge on the internet, stay tuned.

  21. Woohoo! Welcome new team members. And welcome back old team members.

  22. Was that sixteen team members I just counted? Wowza! 2015 here we come!


  23. Congrats to everyone! And thank you all for taking the time to work on the A to Z's a big undertaking and I would imagine it really takes a village to keep it all running smoothly :)

  24. Congratulations to all new and returning team members. I appreciate all you do to make this a successful 2015 Challenge and already look forward to April's event.\

    It is bittersweet not to see Tina Downey's name on the list of intrepid veterans and to know I won't have her wonderful sense of humor and 'heavy hammer' exhorting me on during the Challenge. I have no doubt her spirit will carry on through the many who were privileged to know and love her, and that we will see many new team members take up Tina's torch.

    God Bless all of you.

  25. PS Has captcha been turned back on for a reason?? Will keep many from participating in comments if so.

  26. Thanks for all the great comments.

    We also miss Tina and we talk about her and her wonderful spirit all the time. She won't ever be forgotten by this team.

    Thank you.


  27. I'm definitely participating in 2015. I sort of skipped for 2014, but I won't miss it next time.


  28. Good luck, new members (and yay oldies but goodies!)! Definitely going to participate this coming year and am looking forward to more updates as we get closer.

  29. I am already looking forward to the 2015 challenge. Very thankful for and to everyone who works behind the scenes to make it such an awesome experience.

  30. Yay, team! I'll cheer you all on from the background...I think this team will rock the challenge. Not seeing Tina's name on there was a reminder that she's gone, but I'm sure she'll never be forgotten.

    It is bittersweet not to be on there-- bitter because I'm still struggling with my personal challenges, and sweet, because I see lots of cool names there-- most I'm familiar with, and others I haven't known much but have every faith in. I love AZ, and I'll champion this AZ team, that's for sure.

    Here's hoping I can make it back in 2016!
