On Saturday I told you that today I'd be visiting Alaska on this blog space, but I've decided to postpone this visit. What's the delay? Well, Alaska's a really big state, but I've discovered there's a bigger state. Wait a minute, you say, what state? It's the state of Blogs and there's big doings here with the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge and right now I guess Alaska can wait (sorry, Sarah Palin).
I'm getting a lot of interest in this blog challenge for the month of April and I want to take as much time as I can to make sure we get it off the ground properly and that everyone gets proper credit. In the sidebar I have a list of participants so far. If you have agreed to blog along with us and your link is not there, let me know so I can get it up there. If you still want to join up in the challenge then let me know and I'll get your link on the roll. So far I only have one blogger who has committed to be a supporter by following participants and commenting on our posts. There have been several who said they are going to follow, but give me the commitment that you wish to be recognized as an official supporter so I can get your link posted to the list.
THE REDHEADED STEPCHILD OUT OF THE BASEMENT and SAY ANYTHING for creating the very appropriate logo for the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge. I'm not too swift when it comes to doing these things but I loaded it on my sidebar right there at the top. I encourage all of you who are participants to add it to yours as well so you can be clearly be identified as such. Thank you Dee-- I put both of your sites in the sidebar because I could and because you made the logo for us. I encourage everyone who sees this to go to Dee's site and participate in her Taboo Tuesdays or Saturday Sharing -- these are both opportunities to promote your blogs.
Many of our talented participants have already been promoting the challenge on their sites. Check out the post by Fifi Flowers -- she's already got her bags packed as she'll be taking the A to Z theme overseas with April in Paris--sounds like a really creative approach to the challenge.
Trevor Peck and his Love in the Truth will be joining us from Canada. He posted his Blogging from A to Z(ed) I'm a Canadian yesterday. As did The Alliterative Allomorph from Athens, Greece--she made her announcement yesterday and she's all ready to go.
Then there's Bud Ezekial H. at B-E-ing Transformed --he posted on the challenge topic yesterday as he prepares for the month ahead, but reflects on the challenge that he will be facing personally. Lisa at the Bombastic Bandicoot had the challenge blaring across her page yesterday and announced that she was in and wanted others to join her. I got a kick about what she said about the letter "J" and I can relate to that one as well. Also, Tori Cooper from This Journey Called Life put up a very nice announcement.
Be sure to check the links on the sidebar to see if there are any additional new posts for Tuesday and Wednesday. If you post about the challenge on your blog but are not participating I will make sure to add your link to our cheering section.
Jump on board with us now if you haven't yet. The fun begins on Thursday when we start the first topic based on the letter "A". And if you absolutely don't feel you're up to the challenge, but still want to read the posts and support the bloggers let me know that you are going to do that and I will put your link on that list.
