Your choice of badges for showing off your A to Z pride!

Click here to sign up for the A to Z Challenge! Sign ups are open until April 1. Check out our instructional video below or our written instructions

The Master List sign up is how participants officially register to join the A to Z challenge 2018.


Daily lists, Theme Reveal, and social media comment link-ups are encouraged but not required.
The daily list sign ups will be made available early for those who are confident in their ability to pre-determine their posts' direct links.

The Master List sign up is now:

CLOSED



Categories -- check out that post for information on categories. The MASTER LIST category question is the category of your blog itself. (For whichever category you'd like your blog to be known.)

    1. If you watch the instructional video on Google Sheets above, it explains how to copy your own list. Alternately, you can follow the blogs the same way you always have!

    Happy Blogging!

  18. Done. Third year doing this. First year I could say I'm actually doing educational posts.
    Already regretting my theme and I haven't even started yet!!

    Good luck everyone and may the odds be in your favour

  19. Love the Google Sheet! Looking forward to my second year :) Still deciding on a theme but it will be related to where I live on the Ecuador coast.

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

    Hope everyone has fun.

  21. I'm signed up, and hoping I get to Z this year! I finished my first year in 2016, got too ambitious and ended on V last year, but I'm going back to basics this time with ONE dragon and artist per day! Good luck everyone!

  34. 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?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 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!

    2. 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 :)

      Delete
    3. 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!

  35. 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.

  39. 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!

    1. 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!

    Replies
    1. 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!

  51. 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.

  52. 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!

  54. 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!

  59. 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?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 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.

    2. 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 :)

    3. 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!
