Blogging from A to Z April Challenge

Thirty days hath September, April, June and November…  Thirty minus four equals twenty six.  Twenty six happens to be the number of letters in the alphabet.

For the month of April I will be attempting to blog almost daily, with the exception of Sundays, although April 1, which is a Sunday, will also be a blogging day.  Each blogging day will have a theme starting with a letter of the alphabet (in alphabetical order).  Got it?

In case I’ve completely confused you, I’ve taken on another challenge, this time a blogging challenge for the month of April, beginning April 1st with each day’s blog post being the theme of a letter of the alphabet.  The challenge, ironically enough, is called the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.

You may wonder why on earth I would do this. Below is a list of reasons why I think I should:

  1. I needed a kick in the hind quarters to get back into good eating and exercise habits and while it wasn’t perfect the 4 Weeks to a Better You! Challenge got me headed in the right direction.  I’ve also been feeling like somewhat of a blogging slacker lately and felt that a blogging challenge is exactly what I need to get me motivated to write more regularly.
  2. I’ve started at least a half of a dozen posts in the last month but haven’t posted them.
  3. It will (hopefully) unstop my blogging blockage.  (My creative juices seem to be sitting in the stagnant backwaters more than flowing these days.)
  4. Goals are good.
  5. It can’t get any more simple than the alphabet.
  6. It might be fun.
  7. It will be a challenge.
  8. Challenge is good.
  9. Challenges spark creativity (gets me “out of my box”).
  10. Creativity makes me happy.

So there you have it.  My reasons are completely selfish.  I’m hoping the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge makes me happy.  I’m also hoping that this challenge will get me writing again, sharing more, and hopefully giving you, my lovely readers something to ponder, do or at the very least entertain you for a moment or two, in other words, I hope it makes you happy too.

So buckle up, we might be in for a ride.  And please remember to keep your arms above your head outside the vehicle waving and screaming frantically.

Until April,
