45 days until sign-ups begin!! #atozchallenge #atozchat

45 days doesn't sound quite as far away as 'next year' does it?

The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge sign-up date for 2016 will be on January 25.

It is now officially time to get excited!

Party Time!

Other events to look forward to are the very popular Twitter Chats and, of course, the super-secret awesome Theme Reveal!

Take a knee!

Let's get motivated! Let's get out some paper and a pencil and start brainstorming what we want to do this coming April.

Theme or No theme.
Do I need to start reading books/watching movies/visiting restaurants to review?
What's my hook?
Should I start taking photographs?
Do I want to pre-schedule my posts?
What will make my posts so amazing and interesting that I get readers to come back each day of the month?

If you start answering these questions now, you'll be that much further ahead when it's time to sign-up.

Okay, people...

That's an easy day to remember; a month after Christmas. Got my theme, got the majority of letters mapped out and lots of pictures taken :) Looking forward to this year's challenge!

Themes pop in my head and I got to write the next one down. No more thinking there is plenty of time.

Can't wait to sign up!
I do have a theme, I do want to pre-schedule, this year. In fact I'm already taking down notes and hope to start writing soon (wanted to write all my posts during NaNoWriMo... that just didn't happen...)

I totally need to get back to finalizing the names for my secondary blog, writing those posts, and editing them! At least the posts on my names blog don't take so much research as the posts on my main blog.
