Blogging from A to Z: April 2013 Edition

"E" Is for Elena
Badge by Jeremy [Retro-Zombie]
How many times have I tried blogging challenges? I've lost count now. But this time I'm in earnest. EARNEST, I tell you!!

Here's how it works:
1. Write 26 blog entries in the month of April, one for every letter of the English alphabet.
2. Publish on April 1 and then subsequently on every day of April except the Sundays.
3. Each day's entry should somehow relate to something that starts with the letter for that day, whether a word, an idea, a food, a topic, anything!

So how will I interpret this challenge? I still haven't figured that part out yet. I was thinking an entire month's worth of blog posts inspired by various adjectives. But then, what about the nouns? Oh, dear... a wordsmith in a quandary. (Hey, quandaries on April 19? Maybe so!)

I'm learning that I'm far more experience-oriented than I am goal-oriented, so I'm giving myself the leeway/freedom to just see what I feel like writing. Just that simple. Nothing fancy or special. Just "butt in chair, and write!" as often as possible.

The beautiful thing is that (and I mention this for full disclosure) I can use Blogger's faboo feature that allows you to schedule posts to publish when you want them to. Well, w00t, w00t! to that, right? Right. :)

Which leads me to this: whether you're new to blogging or an old pro, new to blog-reading or the most rabid blog reader out there, lemme let you in on a little secret — it's really OK to blog in batches. It really is. A blogger won't go to Blogosphere Jail. {Elena, remember that!!}

If you've stumbled across this blog, I hope you'll come back Monday, when the fun begins.

Thanks for reading!
