A to Z April Blogging Challenge 2013 Sign-up is Now Open!

The brainchild of Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out, this challenge basically requires 26 posts in 26 days based on 26 letters of the alphabet, one post beginning with each letter during the month of April, with Sundays off for good behavior. 
Two
years ago, I discovered the A to Z Blogging Challenge by accident. I
completed the challenge in 2011, even wrote a book based on the posts. I
co-hosted it in 2012, and am back again co-hosting in 2013. This
challenge has helped my blogs grow, and I know it will do the same for all of you who sign up below!
Since the more the merrier for this mega-networking event, help us spread the word: 

  •  Tweet it on the #atozchallenge tag
  •  Blog about it
  •  Connect with us on twitter via @AprilA2Z

    Great intro, and oh so fun to work together to solve a problem, even though we really couldn't be much further apart on the globe…
    I can't believe how many we have already! It's going to be, in the words of Jake, EPIC. Can't believe I just spoke teenager…

    Thanks for hosting. I missed last year as we were traveling around the world. I am hoping I have an interesting and funny travel story for each letter of the alphabet.

    Is okay if I have not decided which category I want to join? I am new to blogging and am still trying to decide on my blogging category.

      As I said in the post, categories are optional. We only included them due to popular demand last year. If you notice, most co-hosts don't have a category.
