A to Z Challenge – 2013 #AtoZChallange

This will be my third year participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge.

Remember the twitter tag #AtoZChallange!

Here’s the contents of a recent email from co-host Tbone:

Just a reminder that the A to Z Challenge begins Monday, April 1!

On April 1, blog about a topic that begins with the letter “A.” April 2 is “B,” April 3 is “C,” and so on. No posts on Sundays and we finish with Z on April 30.

You can use a theme for the month or go random – just as long as it matches the letter of the alphabet for the day.

We recommend short posts – participants will be trying to visit as many as possible during the Challenge and will likely skip long posts.

Please turn off Word Verification! You won’t receive many comments or return visitors if it’s on. Check your settings, as it may be on without your knowledge. If you are really concerned about spam, set comments to no anonymous or blog owner approval.

Make it easy for people to follow you. Use Google Friends Connect, Feedburner or other RSS Feed, Linky Followers, Networked Blogs, etc., and be sure those widgets are located near the top of your sidebar.

Start with the blog after yours on list. We suggest visiting five blogs a day and you are welcome to visit more!

Make new friends. Visit those who visit you. Return the follows of blogs you enjoy.

Each host has a section of the list and will visit you several times during the month.

We also have minions (assistants) who will help us. It is our goal to make sure all blogs on the list are participating. Ad sites, non-participants, and bad links will be removed as we find them.

Visit the A to Z Blog for updates and daily words of encouragement – http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/

Bottom line – have fun!

If you have any questions, please ask. If you cannot participate, let me know and we will remove you from the list.

We would like to surprise Lee with a huge thank you for starting the Challenge. Since his name coincides with April 1’s letter, we are asking if everyone could take that day to say a special thanks to the Challenge founder. He will be really touched to see that on everyone’s posts. Thank you!

Happy A to Zing!
