Coming Down the Mountain (Karen Gowen)
and of course, yours truly.
Here’s what the A to Z Challenge participants are talking about this year—Arlee Bird quotes some of them:
Colin D Smith will be changing things up a bit on his blog in April in order to accommodate the A to Z Challenge. He’s a first timer and we hope he’ll find it a worthwhile blogging experience.
I guess Jackie at Jackie’s Bookbytes is entitled to change her mind and that’s what she did within one post. Now we’ll have to wait and see what she has in store for April.
Ellie seems to be wavering at Ellie’s Blank Book but at least she waved. She’s trying to decide which of her blogs she should enter in the A to Z. Ellie, you could of course enter them all. And what do you know–the next day that’s exactly what she did. Oh what fun you’re gonna have!
Making plans ahead of time for the A to Z Challenge is first time A to Z-er Stacey Mitchell. We wish her luck with April.
A to Z veteran Duncan Horne from Our Home Called Kuantan puts the A to Z Challenge into perspective and shows how easy it can be.
Want a cupcake? How about a Cadenza? Denise has “C” covered at her blog Cupcakes and Cadenzas and now she’s busily at work on the rest of the alphabet.
The blog A Common Sea will be joining a sea of other bloggers for the big April splash.
This Challenge we’ll have an opportunity to learn about Jamaica from Joy at The Character Depot as she pursues this theme by the letters.
Yadin Bromberg announced his A to Z theme this week. He’s already been learning from other bloggers and on his way to developing a very credible blog.
Miranda Hardy has got a theme and to answer her, uh, yeah, Miranda, we want to know how wacky you really are. I like Miranda’s theme–check it out.
The Left Wright Brain put out an encouraging word for the Challenge.
Hmm–have you ever thought of the A to Z Challenge being like a county fair? That’s the way Michelle Gregory imagines it on her blog Beautiful Chaos. Good analogy, Michelle.
Lisa at Jezri’s Nightmares is going to run in the April Challenge and has no plans of trying to hide. She’s put her cards all on the table in her blog post where she reveals her theme of ‘Monsters A t o Z”. Now that sounds like fun.
If you like television then you’ll have to visit Stephanie Scott: A Girl and Her Diary during the Challenge, but why wait? Stop by and say hello now.
A Daft Scots Lass is one you might want to watch–as in anything can happen.
Notes in a Book is going to use the Challenge as a means of blog revival. This is a good way to do it.
Pam from 2 Encourage is back with us again for another year and we find that encouraging.
By far one of the best things I could do for my new blog. My traffic and followers have already increased after just day 1!

The A to Z blogging challenge sure sounds like an awesome way to meet new people and find great blogs. I'm new to this, and the huge number of blogs that have signed up is overwhelming, but I'll do my best to keep up with the reading!
Thanks to everyone participating in this very interesting challenge!
Great experiences shared here from the a – z blogging challenge.
I too joined the bandwagon. a new experience indeed, let me try to cop up the challenge
Best to wishes to all the dear ones those who are going to participate in this great challenge
Just stopped over to say hello and follow before the A-Z challenge begins. This will be my 2nd year participating. Can't wait for the fun to begin!
I'm excited! It's almost April! 🙂
Alex, me too! You and Lee being the first of them.
K.T.— in this case, I'm thrilled to be blamed :). Now I can proudly tell the other co-hosts I got them a sign-up lol. Jokes apart, I think you'll enjoy it!
E. J. oh yes, it is definitely worth the effort!
Angela, we look forward to your posts!
Denise, it'll be one hell of a ride, that's for sure. 🙂
Really looking forward to taking part in this challenge especially as I've never done anything like this before.
Have fun everyone!
I started off on the "I dunno" column when this year's A to Z Blogging challenge was announced. It took some time and thinking and thinking and smiling to join up and come up with my own little theme. I look forward to this challenge 🙂
Can't endorse A-Z enough. It's where I met wonderful bloggers like you! : )
It IS a challenge, but one that is worth the effort.
I've been watching you post in Triberr, and seeing my friends join up one by one.
Finally I had a theme idea… so now… I've joined too. I completely blame you.
Some of my best blogging buddies are the ones I made the last two years of the Challenge!
