Today I joined the April 2011 blogging A-Z challenge.
Took me long enough. I believe I’m actually candidate #294 on the link list. (I know-holy crap!) Basically you have to post something new every day in April (except Sundays). Each topic reflects a letter of the alphabet in order.
Now, I know that I’m probably going to fail this challenge miserably. To tell you the truth, my blog is starting to give me naked-in-front-of-the-blogosphere-holding-a-blue-ribbon nightmares. I wake up on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and think ‘oh crap. What am I going to blog about today?’ Then I pray inspiration strikes. Most times it does. Other times…not so much.
In any case, after lots of thought, I knew I couldn’t pass up the A-Z this year. You see, a year ago this April, Creepy Query Girl was born. I remember wandering around like the bald, bleary-eyed newbie that I was, attempting my first comments, clicking the ‘follow’ button until my finger developed abnormal twitchiness…
And most of the blogs I frequented at that time had a common theme. They were ALL doing the A-Z challenge! Capitalized letters were busting through the seams of Googlereader. It was everywhere. The posts were original, funny and often pulled out of one’s ass. But that’s what makes it so great!
So, for the month of April, I’m setting down my binoculars and pink camouflage agent-stalking outfit in favor of a quill pen and some old-school ABC’s.
Das right. Going back to the root of all – cause you know…letters are like the atoms in matter, forming together to create something different every time, with like, it’s own genetic code.
Sorry. Just feeding my analogy addiction. It’s a long road to recovery.
Anyways, for those interested in the challenge, you can check it out at Misadventures in Candyland here.
Be there or be square.
