On Saturday I provide information about the Tossing It Out blog. This past week I have been mostly stressing the things I stressed in the first paragraph of this post and trying to provide encouragement to all of the hardworking bloggers in the challenge. I was able to stick to the capsulization that I outlined last week, only changing my debate topic. My thanks to all who commented on my posts and continued to encourage me. For me personally this challenge has become far more of a challenge than I expected. It's tiring, but worth everything ounce of energy that I have been putting into it.
My planned topics for the upcoming week will be a Blog Boggled installment on Juggling; a piece on Knoxville, Tennessee; Living in the Library; a debate on Math Matters, as in regard to Followers; and then for "N" nothing has been decided yet. I think I will be able to stay within these parameters (especially for Friday's N day).
What about you? How are you holding up? I have noticed that at least two participants have dropped out so far:
The Red Headed Step Child and Time For a Bucket List have given notice and will be dropped from the blog roll. I'm not going to rush just in case they change their minds. Maybe you can drop in on their comments and send them your love and support. I want to thank Dee and Margaret for the fine efforts they put into the challenge.
And now to recognize a few blogs that are keeping up with the challenge:
Angel's Muse -- We'll cut her some slack. In all fairness she's been on vacation, but has made some effort to post something. I think she's back now so maybe stop in and give her some encouragement.
Beth: A Work in Progress -- Give her a big hello. We're thinking of you, Beth.
Bombastic Bandicoot -- Lisa is giving it her all with posts and comments--- Thank you Lisa!
Faith, Hope, and Love ---Another ever so constant commenter, Shannon has been posting other bits in addition to the ones for the A to Z Challenge. Wow, she's a pretty busy blogger.
Gospel Driven Disciples -- Gregg puts a lot of work into his very substantive posts. Let him know that you appreciate his efforts.
Learning Contentment -- Okay she's a little behind, but in all fairness she started a bit late. Stop by and let her know you're backing her efforts.
Trying To Reason -- Bry Robbins is still in the running. Don't forget to say hello to her.
Woven Words -- I'm a little confused about this one because the page that loads actually says The Meeting Point. Presented by a dreamy gal this site features some lovely poetry. I particularly liked her "Hunger" entry for the letter "H" -- wow.
Please try to check out these sites and as many others as you have time.
And now from Rayna at Coffee Rings Everywhere I have been given, for the second time, the Prolific Blogger Award. Okay, I admit it--I have been prolific since I started this blog last year, so I am deserving. And now what other prolific bloggers can I pass this off to? All of the participants of the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge, that's who! You bloggers have been pretty darn prolific so far so I pass this to you if you would like to accept. Feel free to pass it on to others who you think are also deserving.
Thanks to all and enjoy your week-end. See you on Monday with the letter "J".
