Time for the Post-A to Z Challenge Road Trip!

Roadtrip #atozchallenge 2021

It's time for the Post A to Z Road Trip 2021! This is a great opportunity to catch up on the many blogs you would have liked to have spent more time visiting, but didn't during the Challenge, and a chance to visit the blogs of people who did the Challenge that you never got to. And, if you're one of those people who did the Challenge but didn't get a lot of visitors, this is a way to let people know that you'd appreciate a visit.

Here's what you do:

  1. Sign up for the Road Trip. There's a place where you can put in the URL of a post that you would like visitors to read first. I used the address of my reflections post because there's a list of all the posts I did with links. Just a suggestion!
  2. Get copies of both the Road Trip List and the Master List. Both will be useful.
  3. Start with the Road Trip list and visit the blogs of the people who signed up there. Take some time to read their blog and their Challenge entries. Leave comments where you feel led to do so, and make sure you identify yourself as a Road Trip participant. Leave a link to your blog so they can return the favor.
  4. Then, if you have the time and inclination to do so, visit some of the blogs on the Master List that you didn't get the chance to visit. Even if they didn't sign up for the Road Trip, I'm sure they'd appreciate a visit.

There's no set time limit to the Road Trip (i.e. no specific end date), so if you wanted to, you could visit everyone who was part of this year's Challenge between now and the start of next year's Challenge. If that's what you want to do, go for it! Most importantly, have fun!

Happy Motoring!

Hey John,

I plan to use the Road Trip to catch up on everyone who left comments on my blog and will read through their entire A2Z entries. This will certainly take a lot of time, probably all summer...maybe the rest of the year. Oh well...I signed up. Thanks for all the hard work you and your co-hosts do for us! Happy motoring to you, too!

I'm with Cathy on that, but I'll probably just sample their A-Z posts :)

And thank you to all the hosts for their hard work from me, too.

This is the first time I'll be doing the Road Trip... it may take a while, but it's one of my 2021 resolutions and I have no intentions of flopping this one. Wish me luck!

I'd still like to know why I disappeared from the master list about 1/2 way through the month. Sent a couple emails to a couple team members. I'm not on the list now so folks would not be able to find me there. Not sure if I will do the road trip although it's tempting. Any thoughts on my invisibility super power?

I have been MIA for a few days whilst I switched blog platforms from Blogger to Wordpress - always takes a while to tweak a site! Now open for business again starting with a first Roadtrip review of a few sites...
