    #AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary Blogging Theme Reveal

    Hello all

    Since announcing my intention to participate in the A-to-Z Blog Challenge (start date April 1), I have been busy creating blog posts on my theme of Aging and Retirement!

    I am pretty excited about this theme - it is a topic I have developed some pretty strong opinions on from my experiences as a caregiver and from my own aging.  But I am not an authority on anything - except my own opinions - so you won't find financial planning advice, or medical advice or even advice on the best places to live in Retirement.  No, sir, those topics are pretty well documented by other knowledgeable folks.

    My posts will be based on "insider" experiences of being an older person.  And since my experiences are as valid as the next guy - I feel pretty comfortable sharing my perspective.

    It will be one person's story.

    But . Oh . My . Golly . Gosh !!!!  ... 26 posts is a big number when you are trying to crank out all of them in advance.  So far I have 13 finalize and scheduled to launch on various dates.  I kind of feel that I have been doing nothing BUT blogging since March 1 - but have nothing actually showing on the blog at present!  Ha!

    There are over 200 blogs participating at this point.  The list grows.  But my goals are pretty specific with regards to finding new blogs to follow and subscribing to them.

    1. They need to use Pop Up comments.  I can't comment on blogs that use Embedded Commenting.  That is a Blogger problem that has not been addressed by Blogger yet, as far as I know.
    2. I am most interested in journal type blogs - rather than writer blogs or photography blogs and the like.  Personal preference is an expected outcome.  My goal is to develop new "blog friendships" - a mutual blog visiting relationship.  
    3. I enjoy blogs whose readership is listed below 500 followers.  Some blogs have thousands of followers - but it is impractical to expect relationship building when you have gobs and gobs of followers.  Some of the most fun blogs are those less than a year old - where the writer is still in the "honeymoon phase" with blogging and are actively engaged with the whole process. 
    I am beginning to get excited about the challenge.  This will be my 3rd effort over its 10 years history.

    I'll be back again before the beginning of the challenge.

    See ya'!!
