A Roadside Attraction with the Mighty A-to-Z Challenge Assets!

Thanks to all who have been doing the 4th annual Post-Challenge Road Trip. While we've racked up a lot of mileage visiting blogs between May and April, the last stretch of highway is a must-see before packing it in for this season. 

Speaking of the seasons changing, Stormy the Weather Gnome took Heather Gardner into their garage to unpack their road trip co-hosting activities. They will both be missed out here on the road; be sure to keep a lookout for them during the A-to-Z Challenge, as they embark on new adventures!

In the meantime, say hello to the assets of Nicole’s Mighty Minion Bureau! These ladies were in positions #53, #63 and #66, respectively, on last year’s signup list for the A-to-Z Challenge and are returning in 2015 for another year of blogging every day in April. As members of my Mighty Minion Bureau, they are also are a carefully selected team of dispatchers who keep the alphabet juice flowing through participants of the challenge.

“Special Agent” SydneyAaliyah Michelle blogs about tattoo stories, movie quotes and contemporary romance novels – including her own Hope series and Another New Life.

Vidya Sury is doing the A-to-Z Challenge with three blogs this year, including Collecting Smiles where she writes about positive messages on parenting, happiness, traveling and food.

Melanie Shultz blogs about life as an indie author and her five-year goal of building a world class publishing company; she’s already on her way, having released an alternative diction series about a private high school where students are trained to become rulers of tomorrow.

Want to know an easy way to speed through the road trip? Here's how...

If you visit every blog mentioned in this entire post today, you’ll have completed the five-blog minimum necessary for surviving the 2015 Blogging from A-to-Z Challenge. It’s a great way to develop and exercise those blog visiting muscles for April!

A-to-Z Challenge Co-Host Nicole Ayers writes about epic kissing scenes, gratitude and bathroom selfies in the workplace at The Madlab Post. Chat with her on Twitter @MadlabPost

I look forward to working with my team this year. Also you're not alone...I didn't visit everyone on the list either but shhh, don't tell anyone I told ya so ;)

Thanks I'm glad you like the team's name. Since today is International Happiness Day (or something like that, according to Google's partnership with the UN), I would recommend you visit Vidya's blog first. She's all about happy vibes over there!

I'm going to enjoy as much as I am able. It's always a pleasure to see you around in blogland, all year around :)

Oh you're so kind. This will be the year that we all find out what our teams are made of, I think. Glad you like this post.

Thank you I'm going to need all the luck I can get. I sought out rockstars when assembling my team and I believe that's what I got, thankfully. You're way ahead of me being ready to go for A-Z. I still need to write out my posts after not having gone past completing the theme reveal for next week. Ha!

Yes there is usually a sign-up list for the A-Z Reflections...and it will (most likely) open at the beginning of May when the challenge is over. Rest assured the details will be announced in enough time for everyone to participate.

A few more days?! No need to rush the month away, lol. Thanks for your good luck wishes.

Oh thank you ever so kindly for your fondness of my team badge! Needless to say, it offers a good idea of what I will be blogging about during the A-to-Z Challenge and practically any other day of the year. Your active participation in our blogging community is fantastic. Keep up the momentum! :)
