30 days away from the A-Z challenge. I signed up during the first week and I’m number 502 on the list! There are currently almost 1,000 bloggers signed up to participate in this challenge! If you aren’t familiar with this challenge (don’t be embarrassed, I just found out about it when I signed up) the object is to post for 26 consecutive days (except Sundays) about anything that you want. The only catch is, the topic has to begin with the letter of the day. So we write our way through the month with posts topics from A-Z.
Don’t talk yourself out of this before you make a mental list of pros and cons. Do you want to take your writing to the next level? Do you want to get more exposure on your blog? Do you want to find other blogs? Do you want to branch out and write about things you might not otherwise? Do you want to try and incorporate different aspects like photography to your blog? Do you want to stick to what you know but do it more often? You can decide where this takes your blog, the only commitment is writing daily and that the topic starts with the letter of the day.
I’ve already started brainstorming and narrowing down a topic for each day. Some days already have rough drafts others I’m still deciding on which topic to use. You have a whole month to brainstorm, plan, jot, draft, outline, take pictures, find pictures, or whatever your creative process is. Don’t let the excuse of not having time keep you from doing something that comes around once a year. You can start now and schedule your posts if that helps with the time factor. We all have the same amount of time, we just choose to use it differently. So if this is something that you want to do, just go for it!
Hope to see you there! If you’ve already signed up or decide to do so, let me know in the comments so I can add it to the list of posts to check out once the challenge starts.
