It’s finally time to throw your name in the metaphorical A to Z hat for 2012. The special linky tool is situated at the bottom of this post (or you can find it at one of the other co-host blogs listed) for those of you who are primed and ready to sign up. For the rest, those who are still sitting on the fence trying to decide if you want to do this or not, here’s my pitch for adding your name to the list. I am not an everyday blogger! I do not post on any sort of schedule (except for WRiTE CLUB). I mostly blog when I feel like it. So why am I doing A to Z, because I'm committed to changing things up in 2012. I’m making it uncomfortable in my comfort zone. It is also another way I can link arms with the awesome writers who inhabit this blogosphere and demonstrate my commitment to the craft. Will it be hard? Sure! But with preparation, grit and determination, I will come out on May 1st successful. You can too!
Just in case there’s someone reading this who doesn’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a recap. By registering below you’ll be signing up to blog every day (except most Sundays) during the month of April. Most years there are 26 days in April after you subtract the Sundays, but this year there are only 25, so we will be blogging on the first Sunday. Blogging about what? A topic themed around the letter of the alphabet that corresponds to that day. Day 1 would be something with the letter A, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until you finish on April 30th with the theme based on the letter Z. It doesn't even have to be a word--it can be a proper noun, the letter used as a symbol, or the letter itself. The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day. Your posts should be short and sweet (like this one) because there will be a LOT of bloggers making their way from site to site.
