Well, you meet some of the coolest people doing blogfests.
I didn’t really have time to do the full circuit, (or anything close to it, ack!) on the Top Ten Songs blogfest, but I did manage to drop by for everyone who commented on my entry, at least. And one blog particularly caught my eye: Tossing it Out.
There’s cool stuff over on Arlee’s blog about Nanowrimo, the philosophy of writing prompts and what it means when you say that you don’t have anything to write about, but definitely the coolest thing at the moment is the A to Z challenge:
The premise is simple. There are thirty days in April – four of them are Sundays, and you can take them off. For the remaining twenty-six, go through the letters of the alphabet in order and do a blog post themed around something with that letter.
There are 148 people signed up for the challenge already, and I’m sure it’ll be at least 200 by the time it actually kicks off, at a minimum. (Arlee and his co-admins are expecting at least 300.) So, on April 1st, hundreds and hundreds of bloggers will be blogging about all kinds of different As, then Bs the next day, then either taking a break from blogging or doing something that doesn’t fit on April the 3rd (Sunday,) then back to C on Monday.
Even though April is also Script Frenzy, I’m SO ready to tackle this. (Let’s see, S for Script Frenzy would fall on April 22nd…) It may mean putting some of my regular features on hiatus, but April sounds like a good time to shake things up anyway, and let the letters guide me to blogging brilliance. (Or utter disaster, but it should a fun disaster even so.)
Are you up to the challenge too?
