The A to Z Challenge and Team

April 1st will mark the beginning of the 4th A to Z Challenge.

What is the A to Z Challenge? It is blogging the letters of the alphabet (starting with A) every day except Sundays. That’s 26 days for 26 letters. Participants can select a theme or randomly choose each day. It just has to correspond with the day’s letter.

This will be the 3rd A to Z Challenge that I have participated in - and my very 1st one as a co-host!

And with that, here are the 2013 A to Z Challenge hosts:

Arlee Bird at Tossing It Out
Damyanti Biswas at Amlokiblogs
Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh
Tina Downey at Life is Good
DL Hammons at Cruising Altitude 2.0
Jeremy Hawkins at Retro-Zombie
Shannon Lawrence at The Warrior Muse
Matthew MacNish at The QQQE
Konstanz Silverbow at No Thought 2 Small
Stephen Tremp at Breakthrough Blogs
Livia Peterson at Leave it to Livia
L. Diane Wolfe at Spunk on a Stick
Nicole at The Madlab Post

I’m excited to be part of the team!

I'll enjoy reading the posts (I'm always amazed at everyone's creativity for A-Z!)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I won't be participating since I've just decreased my blogging days from three days a week to two so I will have more writing time. I will check it out on my blogging days, though. I love seeing the themes people come up with.

Stephen Tremp said...

I have my theme and am outlining my posts ahead of time. Keep it short. That's my motto!

DL Hammons said...

It'll be great to be working alongside you this year! Can't wait to get started!! :)

I think it's great there are so many hosts. There is so many participants. My post today is part of my "extended" A-Z challenge from two years ago.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Welcome to the team!

Konstanz Silverbow said...

So happy to have you as part of the team! This is my second year participating, and second year co-hosting. How I got involved as a co-host before I knew what the challenge even was, I don't know. But I am really glad I did!

A-Z posts are a lot of fun to read. Sadly I won't get to participate because we'll be out of the country for a good chunk of April.

I can't decide yet if I should do the challenge or not.

Nancy Thompson said...

Ugh, I SO want to do the A to Z. My schedule is so tight, I truly don't know if I can fit it in. I have brainstormed a couple of themes though. Maybe, just maybe, I'll see if I can work it in, kind of as a way of paying it forward. That would be nice if I could manage that.

Carol Kilgore said...

You're going to be sooo busy :)

I've never participated - mostly because we're usually traveling at least some portion of April. But I love reading the posts.

Mason Canyon said...

Here I am! Gosh and yay! How I love that the amazing alphabet challenge will soon be here. An excellent chance to parody the whole thing, yet again!

Seriously, despite the fact I would rather have Justin Bieber sing to me then join in a blogfest, I do wish much fulfilment and positive interaction amongst those who participate.

With kindness to you and the team, Gary :)

Hi, Diane,
I know you'll be way busy. Didn't think I'd have the time this year, but I'm going to use the challenge to finish something I started in 2012. Have fun!

Hart Johnson said...

I suppose it's possible I shouldn't fly by the seat of my pantslessness this round... but what to do, what to do...

nutschell said...

You are going to be an amazing co host for sure! I'm still on the fence about the A-Z this year, as I promised myself I'd spend more time actually writing. :S
