Top Ten reasons you should join the 2016 Challenge! #atozchallenge


Every year we ask ourselves why we want to take on such a tough challenge.

So, here are the Top Ten reasons...

10. It's a tough challenge. And when the going gets tough, the tough get blogging.

9.  We might actually learn something. (Learning is fundamental.)

8.  We had nothing better to do for the month of April. Nothing.

7.  Some of us need to make new friends. We won't name names, but you know who you are.

6.  We might just get some new traffic to our blogs. That can't hurt.

5.  Who knows what exciting blogs have been out there that we've been missing all this time?

4.  What else are we going to do with all those vacation photos?

3.  It's possible we could actually inspire someone with our vast knowledge and skill.

2.  PR/Marketing/Promotion opportunities all wrapped up into one challenge!

And, the number one reason to take on the Challenge?

1. It's FUN! No, really. It is a whole lot of fun and very rewarding.




Sign-ups start on 1-25-2016!

I'm in!
One of my pet peeves - vacation photos. Ugh. At least I don't have to sit through a slide projector showing of vacay images.
BTW you might want to remove the 2015 linky list from the 2016 sign up page (it might be confusing to those new to AtoZ.)

You don't have to convince me. The n. 1 reason is reason enough for me. I'm already getting reasy. Last year was my first one and I enjoyed it a lot. This year, I mean to have even more fun with it. Just prepare!!!

Already decided on my theme and written a couple of posts scheduled for the correct date publication. Well worth the effort.
Blessings, Geoff.

A lot of good reasons here and I agree that the number 1 reason should be the fun of it all.

I'm getting the AtoZ jitters just reading this post. It's fun. It's challenging. It's scary. What to choose to write about? A good theme is essential. What? Help?
