• #AtoZChallenge for 2019

    #AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary badge

    I've gone and done it!
      I signed up on this day for the A to Z  Challenge
     - a blog posting challenge scheduled for the month of April.  

    Yikes!

    This is not my first time doing this challenge so I know what I am in for.
      I participated two times previously -
     2011 and 2012.  
    It was great fun.

    It is, however, an effort for me to post every single day!
    Every single day without fail.
    EVERY.SINGLE.DAY 
    folks!!

    (well, technically, there are few days in the schedule where you don't post ... but still.)

    The main incentive for me is not my participation
    (beyond 'talking' one's ear off figuratively in your own blog for others.)
      I get a chance to visit a huge array of other blogs.

    I mean HUGE

    The last time I participated there were over a 1000 blogs in the event
    if memory serves me right.
    The event was well organized so that you could
    be selective in choosing blogs to visit.
    Very very important, because 1000 blogs that are posting every day is ... well ...
    not practical to do if you plan to eat or sleep at any point in April.
    Last time I skipped around, leaving comments everywhere but picking only a few regulars to subscribed too regularly.

    It is sort of like
    window-shopping.

    At signup, participants must label the kind of blog they have,
    and declare a theme for their April posts if known.

    I selected my blog label as Personal - Journal, Muse Type.
    (That's true, right?  I 'muse' on occasion, right?).
    😁

    My theme will be
    Retirement.
    The good, the bad, and the ugly,
    the highs, the lows, and in-between.
    No advice - I am not an authority,
    Just one person's perspective who is in the throws of this stage of life.

    To make the event manageable
    I will use March to write my April posts
    and preschedule them to publish on the correct April day.
    That way I can use the month of April to sit back, relax and once again
    see what the blog world has to offer.

    Sign ups are open to all bloggers during the month of March.
    Check out the website for
    A-to-Z Challenge if you are curious!
    Lots of good information and FAQs.

    A-2-Z Challenge.

    Wish me luck!
