What's Gonna Happen Now
Some folks might think I run things into the ground sometimes and maybe I do, but sometimes I just like to study some things in depth to know how they work and what can be done to make them better. So it goes with the April Challenge. This month long event involved a lot of bloggers who had a lot of opinions. And many of us are already thinking about next year.
If there is going to be another A to Z Challenge next April I think most of us would like to institute some improvements. There are some things that need to go, some that need to stay just as they are, and some that need to be tweaked to optimal performance levels.
What are these things that I'm talking about? That's what I want to examine during the month of May. This month, each Monday--which is my usual day for blogging and writing topics--I will be looking at some of the comments I read in the Reflections posts and other places and evaluating them to see how the A to Z Challenge can work in the most superb way.
Here is part of the Tossing It Out schedule for May:
May 9 -- The negatives of the A to Z Challenge.
May 16-- The positives of the A to Z Challenge.
May 23 -- Some more of your suggestions about the A to Z Challenge.
May 30 -- My evaluation. At this time I might also consider adding a poll to get your opinions of the ideas that I think would work best.
And for those of you who are thinking that you don't want to be hearing about the Challenge anymore, I hope that I can relate the content of these posts to more general application to all blogging and other activities. So even if you hate this A to Z Challenge you might want to give these posts a chance as there might still be some information that you might find useful.
As for my Wednesday and Friday posts, they may or may not be there. I do not have anything scheduled as of yet. As I have mentioned I will be in East Tennessee starting next week for 10 days and then immediately turn around to spend a few days in Houston.
Since I will be spending a lot of time with family, I may not have the same blogging opportunities that I have at home. That quality family time will be important to me. However, I will attempt to continue to make some rounds visiting blogs when I can during this period.
On one of the upcoming Fridays I will have more to say about what will be happening on Tossing It Out in the months to come. I have things planned that I hope you will enjoy and that I hope will enlighten you.
And finally, to all of the Mothers out there:
Happy Mother's Day!!!
Have a wonderful time!
