O is for Opportunity

#AtoZChallenge 2024 letter O #AtoZChallenge2024 badge1

The A to Z Challenge is an opportunity to test your creativity and see if you can come up with 26 words that start with each letter of the alphabet. Unfortunately, that includes letters like X, Q, and Z, and sometimes you have to be creative with those.

So this month is an action-packed and fun-filled monthlong exercise in creativity. If you're like me, you'll probably want to take on another challenge to further your reach into the blogging world. In other words, you'll look for further opportunities to hone your blogging chops, Where do you find them?

You're going to make some friends this month, some of whom are more advanced than others. The long-time bloggers will probably be announcing other blog hops that they're participating in. That was how I got involved with this challenge: I saw people talking about it and said "hey, that looks like something fun to do, I think I'll try that!" In fact, this challenge was what got me to start my blog.

So keep your eyes open for further blog hops. I run one called "Writer's Workshop." Fandango runs a bunch of blog hops from his blog, so look in his direction. If music is your thing, there's Monday's Music Moves Me, which I participate in (on Mondays, naturally). And that's just a tiny sample.

I hope you love blogging enough that you want to do more of it!


Hop to as many blogs in the challenge as possible. Grow and strengthen the community.

Joining this community five years ago certainly deepened my blogging experience and broadened my circle of virtual friends - and last year plunged me into poetry writing...

The desire is there and this is my favorite time of year, because I'm encouraged by so many fellow bloggers. It's just making the time that I struggle with.

April's A-Z challenge is my favourite time of year to blog and be creative with my posts.

I am always interested in new blog hops and challenges. Especially if they introduce me to new blogs to read.

This is my first year participating (or even hearing about it), and it's been a lot of fun so far!
