#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary blogging from A to Z challenge letter A

We're celebrating our Tenth Anniversary here at the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge.


#AtoZchallenge. The blog hop that made an online community by asking bloggers to spend the month of April using the English alphabet as inspiration for their posts. We're glad you stopped by today.

**********

A is for A to Z

        "A" can be for Arlee--that's me!--but better yet "A" is for A to Z Challenge.  Since this is the opening post at the A to Z Blog for the 2019 Challenge I'd like to welcome everyone who is joining us as a participant or as a supporter reading our posts.

          A to Z is mostly about fun, but it can help bloggers in many ways.  Whether you are reviving a dormant blog or building content for an active blog, you can probably think of many good reasons to participate.  You might even end up with a book compiled from your April posts!

          So let's dive into the alphabet for the month of April.  Visit as many A to Z posts as you can each day and leave comments so that those bloggers will know you stopped by.  If you haven't prescheduled your posts, don't get stressed--keep your posts short so you don't tax yourself as well as overburden your readers.

           But that's my suggestion and it's your blog so you know best about your situation.  No matter how you approach A to Z we want everyone to have a great time. 

            And away we go!

Hi Arlee! Last time for me was 2016 and I did make a book for my theme 'Lessons Learned'. Now I'm back! See you along the way!

Sad I was hoping I hadn't missed out but I guess I cannot get on the linky! So excited for this blog hope. I have always enjoyed it. Very inspirational and helps one be so creative. Congrats on the anniversary! Beth

Guess I missed out. Bummer. I thought April 6th was the last date. That will teach me to be overworked, right? Well, it will save me some writing!

Last time 2016

I am so thrilled to be doing this again. It has been a few years. I made fun contacts and friends on previous A-Z challenges.

So good to be here again, 5th year in a row.

Lisa said...

I am worried. The post is from April 1, and the comments show April 1, but I don't see the link to put our own April 1 (A) posts up. Will it be a new post on what is April 1 where I live? It's still March 31 here!

Good luck to all participating in the challenge! Enjoyed my years participating in the past but life is way too busy to do it these days.

Happy 10 years!

Arlee Bird, darlin'! I'm thrilled to join you again for another year of A2Zing. This is my 7th year and I am eager to enjoy the fun again. Let me say thank you to you and all of your lovely hosts. There's a lot of work with keeping this blogfest floating each year and I for one don't know how y'all do it, especially you the Brain Child behind this madness but you do.

I hope y'all will find time to check out my Little Mermaid Art Sketch series beginning with ARIEL on Curious as a Cathy!!

Happy A2Zing!

Hi Arlee

As I signed up for the master list yesterday only, I missed signing up the spreadsheet for Theme Reveal post... Can you suggest an alternative?

Also earlier I was able to like or comment on posts you guys put up on Facebook page of yours. Now I am unable to. Am I missing a trick here? Please help

This is my 3rd time.
Excited to be participating again!

I stumbled upon this challenge a few years ago when I was actually an active blogger, but never participated until now! And with two brand new blogs!

Roland Clarke said...

Hi Arlee, Master Creator of All from A to Z. I've failed at AtoZ 101 as my story posts are too long - to write and to read. Well, maybe by December or next year..................................

Congratulations, Lee on the 10 year anniversary. Wow, I’m beginning to feel old. I’m giving it another go this year. I hope I’ve figured out my blogger comment issue. Why do they keep changing everything? Have fun.
