A to Z Challenge Wrap Up

AIn April, I participated in the A to Z challenge where each day (except Sundays) you post a blog on a new topic following the letters of the alphabet. So April 1 was A, April 2 was B and so on.

This was my second year doing the challenge. Last year, I didn’t have a theme. This year I had a theme for the days I don’t typically blog (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday). On the other days, I stuck with my normal topics – parenting on Monday, quotes on Wednesday, and writing/publishing on Thursday. Friday is my Featured Author spot, so I actually did two posts – the typical author interview or excerpt and then also a short blog that fit the challenge letter. (Any authors interested in being on my Friday Feature, contact me through the About Me section.)

So my theme for non-regular blogging days was TV Shows. I picked out shows that I either currently watch or have watched in the past.

Now part of the challenge is to visit other blogs. (You never know when you will find a new favorite blogger.) I noticed that many people couldn’t seem to keep up with the amount of blogging. It is a lot to do to blog six days a week.

Tip: Write your posts in advance. I typically do that for my blog anyway. I am always two weeks to a month ahead of schedule. If I had to rely on posting 4 times a week without advance planning, not much would make it on my blog either.

    With the exception of the last three I wrote my post in advance, less stressful. Now, I need to keep the momentum going!

    I will admit, I’ve never done the A to Z Challenge. Maybe next year, but not right now, definitely.
