When I started this blog almost a year ago I had no idea what it would turn into. I am blessed that it has turned into something great! I love writing for this blog and I love interacting with my readers.
One day I came across a post about the April A to Z blog challenge and it caught my eye. I love a good challenge (hence my crazy goal to write one post per day for the year) and I thought I would participate just for fun. I have been eagerly anticipating the start of April and, it’s here so I can start my challenge!
Now, I didn’t take this challenge lightly. I sat down last weekend and planned out my whole editorial calendar for April so as to not hit a day and not know what I was going to write about. I guess maybe this is more like the April A to Z theme reveal, or maybe not, I don’t know since this is my first year doing this. Either way, I thought I would share with you what posts are going to be what days so you know what to look forward to and come back on the days you want. I will also link to each post here so you can find it easier if you want. I have a lot of great things planned this month!
(I will add the links here as the posts are written. This way you can keep up with my progress and check out any other posts you want. The links will not work until the date listed at 8:00 AM EST)

Wow, I can’t believe I was actually able to come up with a topic for every day! These are subject to change, but if I do change them I will still write about that subject at some point in the future.
Now, for a little bit about the April A to Z Challenge. It all started in March of 2010 and has grown more and more every year since then. If you want to learn more about the history of the April A to Z challenge, make sure you visit the official April A to Z website.
It very simple, you post every day in April, except Sundays, and each day is based on a letter of the alphabet, from A to Z. Since it has become so popular, it is also customary for participating bloggers to visit other blogs that are participating in the challenge. I plan to try to visit them all, no promises though because there are a ton of blogs on the list (over 1500 as of right now). I will aim for at least 25 per day, with an ultimate goal of 60-100 per day to try to hit them all (I started a little early by starting the beginning of this week)! If I find any great ones I promise to share them with you, so make sure you sign up for my weekly newsletter to see who I find!
If you want to sign up for the challenge you still can until April 4th. There are over 1500 blogs listed, so you are sure to find a few new blogs to follow and a few new followers.
Have you participated in the April A to Z challenge before? Do you plan to participate this year?
