Something's brewing and I don't mean the hot chocolate or apple cider and I'm not talking about a belated Christmas pudding. What's cooking isn't food or drink, but blogging activities coming up in the next month or so. Now that this year is almost a done deal, let's look ahead to how 2016 will be kicking off.
Battle of the Bands
Tossing It Out will continue to participate in the Battle of the Bands postings on the 1st and 15th of each month. You're always welcomed to join us with your own song Battles, but even if you aren't posting your own contest I hope you'll visit mine and vote on your favorite version. The first Battle on my blog for 2016 will come up on Friday January 1st. The song I'll be using will be an oldie. It isn't new, but I won't tell you what. Though in a way I've hinted at the song in the previous sentence--the words of the title are there.
Insecure Writer's Support Group
The Insecure Writer's Support Group has been hosted by Alex J Cavanaugh for a few years now. Tossing It Out has been a part of this event since it first appeared in the blogosphere.
On January 15th I'll be joining in on the Backstage Blogathon where participants pick a film made before 1970 that has something to do with the workings of show biz. This is a blog share that definitely fits my interests. In that same post I'll be presenting a Battle of the Bands with a song that I think is appropriate for the film I've selected.
A to Z Challenge
Sign-ups for the 2016 April A to Z Challenge will open on Monday January 25th. For information about the A to Z Challenge visit the A to Z Challenge Blog. Lot's of things start happening once sign-ups open. Watch the blog site.
Lost and Found: The Valentine's Edition
On February 1st I'll be involved in this blogfest in honor of Valentine's Day. Posts can be about anything concerning the subject of love discovered or love lost. More details on this after the 1st of January. I'll be combining my "Lost and Found" post with a Battle of the Bands song pick based on this same topic of love.
Watch This Space...
Hope everyone had a great Christmas and are enjoying some holiday time. Have a safe New Year!
