As we wind down to the end of the St. Patrick’s Day Party, I figured I’d reprise a subject I talked about on Sunday – the A to Z Blogging Challenge. This will be my third year doing the challenge, and, like last year, I’ll be doing it on more than one blog. I figured I’d share a little bit about how I approach the challenge, in case I can entice any of you bloggers to join in the fun. Even if you’re not a blogger, I invite you to come join me on my blog as I wind my way through the alphabet.
On my primary blog, Noony’s Blog, I plan to explore the A to Z of the Zoo – specifically the Brookfield Zoo. I have most of the letters already filled in, but am missing I, J, Q, R, V, X, and Y. We had planned to go this past weekend, but our plans changed; we’ll go this weekend and the one following, instead. I’ve already got photos of some of the animals already, so I’m getting ready to queue up those posts.
Queue! I could use a line at the zoo, either of people lining up or of animals walking in a line! Ha. One more letter down. ~grin~
On my craft blog, Knoontime Knitting, I am trying something new for me – I’m looking for letterforms that occur in nature. You know when you’re out wandering around, and a tree forms what looks like the letter “V”? Like that. Only I’m attempting to do it on purpose. I went out on my lunch break the other day and got up to about “H.” It’s fun, and I’m beginning to see the world around me in a different light.
On the blog Rachel and I share, Noon & Wilder, I originally decided to do The A to Z of N & W. As I came up with ideas for the letters, though, I realized I have enough right here in Chicago, so I’ll keep it local. Next year, I can do Las Vegas.
My reader group, the Nice Girls Writing Naughty, is going to do the challenge together – each of us will take a couple letters and write our posts to them. Plus, we’re launching our new website at the end of March, so there’s a lot going on there. For now, our blog address is here; we’ll announce the new site on that blog, so you can keep an eye there for the announcement. Also, if you’re on Facebook, we’d love for you to join us.
