I've Got a Team! Arlee's #atozchallenge Ambassadors

;


        Recently a call for help was sounded on the A to Z Challenge Blog and many great bloggers stepped forward to answer that call.   We requested volunteers to act as administrative assistants to the A to Z Team co-hosts to help us broaden our outreach to the Challenge participants.

        I now have a very eclectic team assembled to help me.   Please pay a visit to each of these bloggers so you can introduce yourself and while you're visiting you might want to click their follow buttons or subscribe to their new posts.  

        Each co-host will have their own auxiliary help team with corresponding badges to identify who they are.  Announcements should be appearing on each co-host blog announcing their teams and displaying the badge that will identify each respective co-host team.  The help teams will be listed and linked on a special page at the A to Z Blog.  

Meet Arlee Bird's A to Z Challenge Ambassadors for 2013:

Judy at raisingthecurtain.net 

Tim Brannan at   The Other Side  and his secondary blog that he co-runs Red Sonja: She Devil with a Sword .


Jaimie Ramsey at Living in the Light .

Yvonne Lewis at Yvonne's Poetry Corner   

Alana Garrigues at Writercize .


         In the weeks to come and throughout April these A to Z Ambassadors will visiting blogs throughout the list in order to introduce themselves to you and provide encouragement.    They will also be helping us to make sure all the links on the list are good and the bloggers who have signed up are indeed participating in the Challenge.    Those blogs that do not remain active with A to Z posts during April will be removed from the list.

         Please let us know if you are having any problems posting during April or if you fall behind for any reason and plan to catch up.    Through the efforts of the A to Z Team co-hosts and their subordinate assistance teams we hope to keep the list free from any irregularities that waste time for those of you who are trying to visit as many blogs as possible.

         My thanks to my Challenge Ambassadors and to all of those helping my co-hosts!

          Have you been telling others about the A to Z Challenge?   Have you done any special A to Z posts on your own blog?      How many blogs do you predict will sign up for 2013?

  1. I was having a look at the other blogs, but when I got to 'Yvonne's Poetry Corner' it appears I cant view it I get the message

    This blog is open to invited readers only

    I might be a bit odd at times but deep down I am a friendly chap. And it is rather an extreme way to enter the A to Z.

    Looking forward to the start as I have a plan this year.

  5. Lee,

    I have been talking to people through twitter and sharing more about the A to Z challenge. I have never done one before (although I did a dry run back in August just to make an attempt at keeping up...) The hardest thing for me is trying to keep up with being a stay-at-home dad and writing the post but I think I can manage! Sounds like a great list of ambassadors.
