Are you ready for the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge? I know that some of you are ready because you’ve told me. Others of you may be thinking about it and I’m hoping that today’s post will get you to thinking a bit harder about it. And then some of you may be thinking, “What’s a Blogging From A to Z Challenge anyway?”
I would suggest you to check this video below, where your’s truly ME – Novemberschild, speaks about this challenge.

So for all of you bloggers/writers out there who would like to be more prolific, are looking to meet new friends in the blogosphere, or are hoping to be somewhat recognized for your work, why not start with the A to Z Challenge? It’s not a contest, mind you, but a community of bloggers/writers who join for a specific goal: to write on topics that start from A to Z for the whole month of April, Sundays not included.
How does the Challenge work?
The premise of the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge is to post something on your blog every day in April except for Sundays. In doing this you will have 26 blog posts–one for each letter of the alphabet. Each day you will theme your post according to a letter of the alphabet. You will only be limited by your own imagination in this challenge. There is an unlimited universe of possibilities. You can post essays, short pieces of fiction, poetry, recipes, travel sketches, or anything else you would like to write about. You don’t have to be a writer to do this. You can post photos, including samples of your own art or craftwork. Everyone who blogs can post from A to Z.
WOW…I can’t believe it’s almost that time again. Where did the time go? It seems like only yesterday I was finishing up my Z blog post that ended the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. What a great experience it was participating in that challenge!
Sign up is now open and you can bet I have already submitted my blog site. In fact, I will be entering the challenge with two themes this year. It should be fun trying to keep up with both.
I’m pretty sure what my themes will be but shhhhhhhhh I can’t tell you until the Theme Reveal which would happen this month. I am a firm believer in theming the A to Z Challenge. I’ve been much more successful when I have a theme! I look forward to reading as many people’s reveals as possible and I need to say upfront, PLEASE LOVE ME even though it is my third attempt at the challenge.
I know, I know I am miles away from where I was with my first post. But I want MORE! I want more readers, more Twitter followers, more followers. But isn’t that how life goes? We are never happy with what we have. Blogging is difficult. It’s not a walk in the park like most people think. For the effort and dedication, I want to be able to see that people actually care about what I have to say. I want my posts to actually get out there and people actually read them.
This 2018 AtoZ with Blogchatter community – where I blog with 2 different themes, I would love to see the following things happen:
- Significantly increase my social media followers and blog readers.
- Become more well known in the blogging world
- Be seen more seriously as a blogger by fellow bloggers
- Attend and conduct a blogging conference or a workshop
- Secure more paid posts
- Finally, become a best overall blogger than what I am right now. This will take time, dedication and just down right blood, sweat, and tears (okay that may be a tad dramatic)
I LOVE blogging. It is something that I thoroughly enjoy and do for me. So of course I want to be the best blogger I can. I want to deliver awesome blog posts to my readers. I want to be a blogger that people can relate to and enjoy reading. So here’s to another year of blogging challenge ATOZ. May I be able to complete both my themes and churn out 52 posts and be the best blogger I can in 2018!
