(And thanks to all who wished me a happy anniversary. We spend the weekend in Asheville, NC, unplugged from the Internet, and had a wonderful time. The Sunday Sillies did post as usual, so check it out if you missed it.)
Arlee Bird at Tossing It Out threw out a challenge at the end of March - blog from A-Z with only Sundays off.
I'm not sure he was quite prepared for the response, but I'd gather about 100 bloggers agreed to join him in this challenge. (Since I was still touring for Book V and had several scheduled posts, I declined.)
However, several of my blogger buddies joined in the fun:
Alex J. Cavanaugh
B. Miller Fiction
Rayna - Coffee Rings Everywhere
Shannon - Faith, Hope, Love
From what I can tell, not only did they have a lot of fun, but they made a tremendous amount of new friends and learned to discipline their blogging habits. I was the second to the last class for Book Blog Tours and this challenge was similar to our exercise of blogging daily. It really brought this group together - and they are from all walks of life and all ages. But they connected in a very important way during the challenge.
Today is the mega post over at Tossing It Out and all of the participants are blogging what they learned. Go check it out and congratulate the particpants. And when you read their account of the challenge, you will be inspired!
And you won't want to miss it next year.
