Good luck everyone and may the odds be in your favour

Thank you, A-Z team, for all of your hard work.

Hope everyone has fun.

Saraallie said...

So I made a slight error! I thought the blog category was supposed to be according to my theme for the A to Z. So my theme is more about food but my blog is about general lifestyle. I post food, lifestyle, and etc.
Is it okay or do I need to request a change?

Rebekah {mossandink} said...

Thank you so much!

Jr Vincente said...

That's up to you. I can change it if you'd like. If you post each day, you can choose a different category for your other posts.

Just let me know by commenting here or emailing me at jrvincente@gmail.com.

Thanks!

You're welcome!

Jr Vincente said...

You're welcome!

Saraallie said...

Do you recommend I use my blog's genre or the theme? I will be posting only about my theme throughout April. So for April my blog will be all about my baking and cake decorating (edible art). Otherwise it's about everything in general. Please advise :)

Jr Vincente said...

For your sign up, you may want to put the blog's genre and then in the theme at the end you can explain what you're doing for this A to Z.

If you fill out the daily forms, you can select a different category for every blog post if you wanted to!

Ultimately, there's no right or wrong way to do it. It's up to you!

I think this is my 5th or 6th year participating, although I haven't always finished. This is one of my favorite things to do each year, and definitely a morale booster for writers/writing.

Hi I just signed up and filled the google form for theme reveal and sign up- do I need to add my name in the google docs as well?

Sue McPeak said...

Please fix blog link for CollectInTexasGal #414 on sign up list. It should be....http://collectintexasgal.blogspot.com/
Thanks,

Jr Vincente said...

The Forms automatically put your information into the Google Sheets. You should see them there at the bottom!

I just signed and happy about it, have not thought about a theme, will soon start working on a theme, this is my 5th time to participate, and looking forward to meet a lot of people, happy blogging !!

Tikeetha said...

Done. It's my first year.

ghostmmnc said...

I may have missed it, but is there some way to do ping backs to a certain page here each day, or has that been changed to something else? Thanks!

scarlett79 said...

So I went to last year's theme reveal. But I found this year's so I'll give it a go one more time. I'm doing two AtoZ Challenges this year so that should be fun. Here's the links

signed for my company blog. wanted to know if that's ok. how will i know if we are in or not

John Holton said...

We're doing things differently this year. Rather than have you do pingbacks, we've set up a daily form where you can enter all the information. The link for the form and the resulting spreadsheet will be in the daily post to this blog, so stay tuned!

Joy said...

hoping to be able to participate again this year...3rd time the charm ;) having pneumonia and some unknown autoimmune disease may make this year's particularly hard but maybe i can do some writing in advance! :)

ghostmmnc said...

Thanks so much for the information, John!

You are in automatically when you fill out the form.

Anna Tan said...

Ipsita Banerjee said...

I've signed up again. Put in two blogs but would like to delete one. Any way in which I can do that?

Sue Bursztynski said...

Do we post each day we write as we did last year?

Ekta Khetan said...

You can do that, but you don't have to. We have the Master List so you can just do that, or if you want to, you can also post on our daily lists. Some people will check only the Master List. Some people will check only the daily lists. Some will check both! So in the end, it's up to you.

Happy blogging!

Anne M Bray said...

I'm hoping my website's major upgrade to a WP site (which will include where I'll be blogging A-Z trucks for the second year) will finish in time. If not, I won't be on "the list" but I'll do it anyway.
Also doing shoes, in the "art" category.

J Q Rose said...

Curious about the Master List. Is that link what we should use to direct blog readers to other bloggers? Or is it not exactly a blog hop style event? (My first year. can you tell??) Not sure how to filter or exactly how to use it yet, but I'l figure it out. Thanks for the opportunity to stretch our blogging muscles with this challenge!
JQ Rose

J Q Rose said...

I discovered the written instructions and video. I'll study up before April 1! But...I can't find a link to the master list now. sigh But I do see the daily sign ups to add my blog to that. I know how to do that!!! LOL.

Jr Vincente said...

The link is above in the post: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nd9634nZWf1FmHFZ6ofKxBiIwGPWqkct9T9H5ugDQBA/edit?usp=sharing

Happy blogging!

Roma Gupta Sinha said...

So elated participating here for the third consecutive year, love you all :)

Gary Jefferies said...

First time I’ve looked into participating. I’m hoping to complete it too. Rather an ominous feeling which makes no sense as I’ve done NaNoWriMo successfully for the last two years! Hoping to link up with new people and have a blast at the same time....if I can figure out how it all work!

Anupama K. Mazumder said...

I needed to revive my blogging habit - what could be better than A to Z challenge?

kjscrim said...

This is my first year here and am excited. Like anything new, I'll probably fumble through it all, but that's OK. See you all on the other side! :-)

lindamaycurry said...

All fixed. Thanks so much.

Keith's Ramblings said...

Ready....steady....

Emily Bloomquist said...

Since the day I signed up on the master list and today, I have renamed my blog from My Life in Ecuador to Emily in Ecuador. Would it be possible for an admin to change the name in the master list?

Parinitha said...

Hi there,
Any way I can participate this year? The form is officially closed I see but can an exception be made?

Jr Vincente said...

You can still sign up daily using the links at http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/p/daily-list-links-atozchallenge.html

Sue Bursztynski said...

Sorry, but I'm afraid I don't much care for the Google Docs list. I found it much easier last year to see in the comments who had posted and about what - and I got plenty of people visiting. Hardly anyone this year so far. Now I can't work it out from the spreadsheet, though I have added my posts each day - and today, alas, I can't seem to even scroll through the list. Help! (I have checked out your tutorials, but there was nothing that helped me, it was just the basics I could figure out without a tutorial). Can we have a bit more detail, please?

Jr Vincente said...

Sorry to hear that you don't like the Docs list so far. We'll be doing a survey at the end of the month to get input. Feel free to share that there as well. I am personally finding the opposite.

I am not sure how to help you with the spreadsheet.

To get your post on the list, you use the google forms, which are all listed here: http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/p/daily-list-links-atozchallenge.html

To see the list, you can see them each day on the daily post we make down near the bottom.

If you can send us screenshots of your issue, we may be able to help you further.

Pearson Report said...

I agree with Sue - very difficult to navigate. I've tried it on my MacBook and my Surface 3 - both have serious issues with scrolling.

As I'm late to getting on the Master List this year (no worries, I'll live) I have checked out the list and fear I feel for Sue - it's not easy.
You might not have an issue with Docs - but I'll bet lots do. It will be interesting seeing the feedback you get.

Good luck, Sue! I'll drop by and check out your posts.

Cheers, Jenny :)

Jr Vincente said...

I'd be happy to try to help you figure things out.

Before we released it, we tested the system on Firefox, Chrome, Edge, and Safari on both PCs and Macs and encountered no issues. If you can send us screen shots, we can either try to adjust the sheet accordingly or help you figure out how to use it better.

Also, remember that you can download your own version of the spreadsheets and then alter them any way that works for you.

Happy blogging!
Jayden
