2014 Blogging from A-Z Challenge

I am excited to be a participant in this year’s Blogging From A to Z Challenge which will start this Tuesday April 1st and will last all month.

As a part of this challenge, I will be blogging every day in April with most days following the format detailed below. This challenge, though, allows for Sundays to be off as a rest day, but Sundays are my set blog days, so those days will not be in the A-Z Challenge, they will be my regular DYSB style.


For all the Monday through Saturday posts I’ll be following the challenge style, which has participants following an A-Z guided schedule using a letter a day in our blog post title. Some will use the letters without a theme, but I have chosen to have a theme to my A-Z.

A recent tweet from a friend (check out Jessica’s blog here) got me thinking about inspiration and how we find it all around us. So, in my A to Z Challenge blog posts, each letter will be something that inspires me.

Maybe it will be something that inspires me as a writer.

Maybe it will be something that inspires me as a mom.

Maybe it will be something that inspires me to be a better person.

Maybe it will be something that just inspires me to make it through another busy day.

But, you get the point, it’s all about inspiration, baby! πŸ™‚

Posts will be shorter than normal for the most part, as I am still keeping my commitment to write every day, and usually, I don’t count writing my blog as my meeting my writing commitment for the day.

Another cool part of the challenge will be committing to visit other participants’ blogs. I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone else is doing for this challenge. Hopefully you will, too. And who knows, maybe one of them will show up in a post about what inspires me.

If you want more information on the A to Z Challenge, please go check out how to join in!

Also you can use (or look for those of us participating, with) the hashtag #AtoZChallenge on Twitter.

Have a great week and hopefully I’ll see you (and your comments) as I tackle this challenge starting on Tuesday.

  1. That’s awesome CJ! Now I’m trying to figure out what I wrote that inspired you. πŸ™‚
    I may have to check this out although I blog almost every day anyway. Add that to Camp NaNoWroMo, and April is going to be a busy month for writing.

    1. You said you were inspired by Noah in a tweet about staying up writing all night. I replied that we find inspiration in a lot of places. So I thought of that when I was trying to come up with my theme. See – inspiration in lots of places πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Catherine. I’m sorry I think I missed this comment before. I will come by and visit your blog tonight when I make my visits ( and write my blog ). Hope you are enjoying this whole event as much as I am! πŸ™‚

  2. stopping in from the A-Z! I wanted to follow you by way of facebook, but did not see that you have a page. My email is so FULL, I never get though all the mesgs. so I’m trying not to take on new blogs through email. Let me know if there is another way to follow? Come visit me, if you’d like: http://adventuresintheballpark.blogspot.com

    1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚

      I am on Twitter as @twinmomcj and I usually tweet with each new blog post.

      I may add a Facebook for my writing, currently only have a personal Facebook.

      I post my blog posts at night so hopefully you’ll come back and take a look later. I’ll also make blog visits at night, so I will visit your blog later tonight!

      Hope you are having as much fun with this challenge as I am. πŸ˜‰

  3. Good luck and have fun with it. Short posts are the key to not going crazy, and do visit other blogs. I’ve met some cool folks the years I did it. I did not do it last year, but this year I’ve got A under my belt and a B ready to go.

    1. Great, thanks! So you are in as well? I think it’s such a neat idea and fun to see how everyone is tackling the same challenge. I look forward to reading yours. πŸ™‚
