#atozchallenge -- Let the Challenge inspire you!

The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is more than just a bunch of letters.

It's a community.

Not just for writers, but for any number of creative people all around the world. 

Doing this Challenge brings bloggers together that might never have found each other.

It unites like-minded bloggers and yet it also introduces us to brand new ideas, categories, and people.

The Challenge gives us all something to look forward to and something to strive for.

Meeting our own expectations, and cheering on our fellow bloggers, is not only exciting, but also inspiring!



  1. It's true and little do people know who much effort goes into preparing those posts. For me, months of refining the posts.

    This will be my 4th year upcoming. After my Countdown to Christmas, I begin my AtoZ preparation.

  2. I love the challenge for the new people I meet that I otherwise wouldn't have.

  3. Hi Heather .. couldn't agree more - I enjoy doing it ... the challenge of interesting posts, the learning and then the meeting and greeting across this blogosphere ... cheers Hilary

  4. Spot on, the A-Z takes you outside your normal readership for both readers of your blog and blogs you visit as well. This will be my fourth year in 2016, I too start planning posts after New Year, I like to be really organised ahead, so I can visit lots of other bloggers during the tour.

  5. A to Z is how I met a lot of my blogging friends.

  6. When I've put in the work during the A-Z (and let's face it, it IS work!) I have made new blog friends I would have never, ever found otherwise. I've also enjoyed the crazed frenzy that can only be experienced while working with a group of people with the same goals. The past few years have had me skimping on the posting and the visiting during A-Z but I am so excited about next years' challenge! I've even got my topic ready to roll! A bit early, true, but a fun thing to think about during the cold days of winter. Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. This is a great description of the challenge! The A to Z not only brought me back to blogging after a long hiatus, it also got me into commenting, participating in the community, and posting regularly all year.

  8. Nice article! Thanks for sharing this. When I read this I knew it is worth reading and that’s the reason to recommend it. Christmas is coming and I think we all need to discover some new things in next year. In addition I can recommend the article titled: “How Writing Influences The Brain” to you.
