2014 Blogging from A-Z Challenge

I am excited to be a participant in this year’s Blogging From A to Z Challenge which will start this Tuesday April 1st and will last all month.

As a part of this challenge, I will be blogging every day in April with most days following the format detailed below. This challenge, though, allows for Sundays to be off as a rest day, but Sundays are my set blog days, so those days will not be in the A-Z Challenge, they will be my regular DYSB style.


For all the Monday through Saturday posts I’ll be following the challenge style, which has participants following an A-Z guided schedule using a letter a day in our blog post title. Some will use the letters without a theme, but I have chosen to have a theme to my A-Z.

A recent tweet from a friend (check out Jessica’s blog here) got me thinking about inspiration and how we find it all around us. So, in my A to Z Challenge blog posts, each letter will be something that inspires me.

Maybe it will be something that inspires me as a writer.

Maybe it will be something that inspires me as a mom.

Maybe it will be something that inspires me to be a better person.

Maybe it will be something that just inspires me to make it through another busy day.

But, you get the point, it’s all about inspiration, baby! πŸ™‚

Posts will be shorter than normal for the most part, as I am still keeping my commitment to write every day, and usually, I don’t count writing my blog as my meeting my writing commitment for the day.

Another cool part of the challenge will be committing to visit other participants’ blogs. I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone else is doing for this challenge. Hopefully you will, too. And who knows, maybe one of them will show up in a post about what inspires me.

If you want more information on the A to Z Challenge, please go check out how to join in!

Also you can use (or look for those of us participating, with) the hashtag #AtoZChallenge on Twitter.

Have a great week and hopefully I’ll see you (and your comments) as I tackle this challenge starting on Tuesday.

  1. That’s awesome CJ! Now I’m trying to figure out what I wrote that inspired you. πŸ™‚
    I may have to check this out although I blog almost every day anyway. Add that to Camp NaNoWroMo, and April is going to be a busy month for writing.

    1. You said you were inspired by Noah in a tweet about staying up writing all night. I replied that we find inspiration in a lot of places. So I thought of that when I was trying to come up with my theme. See – inspiration in lots of places πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Catherine. I’m sorry I think I missed this comment before. I will come by and visit your blog tonight when I make my visits ( and write my blog ). Hope you are enjoying this whole event as much as I am! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚

      I am on Twitter as @twinmomcj and I usually tweet with each new blog post.

      I may add a Facebook for my writing, currently only have a personal Facebook.

      I post my blog posts at night so hopefully you’ll come back and take a look later. I’ll also make blog visits at night, so I will visit your blog later tonight!

      Hope you are having as much fun with this challenge as I am. πŸ˜‰

  2. Good luck and have fun with it. Short posts are the key to not going crazy, and do visit other blogs. I’ve met some cool folks the years I did it. I did not do it last year, but this year I’ve got A under my belt and a B ready to go.

    1. Great, thanks! So you are in as well? I think it’s such a neat idea and fun to see how everyone is tackling the same challenge. I look forward to reading yours. πŸ™‚
