What is the Blogging A to Z Challenge?
It all began with a post from Arlee Bird (the brain child) when he set forth a challenge to all bloggers (mostly writers) for the month of April. He wondered could bloggers post every day except Sundays during the month of April. And to up the bar, could we blog thematically from A to Z? It has grown by leaps and bounds ever since with over 2K blogs participating this year with tons of categories and blog niches represented.
I discovered the Blogging A to Z challenge in 2010 when I still maintained a writing blog. That Writing blog (along with another one) has since merged into Crazed Mom and become an everyday, no topics off limit blog. I considered doing the challenge on that blog again this year, but would rather focus over here on what I’m good at – food. It’s not too late though, so maybe I will jump on board over there too. Who knows, I tend to be a glutton for punishment. (or high levels of stress haha)
I began doing the Blogging A to Z Challenge here on Daily Dish Recipes, in 2011. I didn’t do too well, but in 2012 and 2013 I did MUCH better and stuck to my recipe theme. Lots of great recipes and food were shared.
This year I plan to go at it again, and I’m sticking to a super easy recipe theme. Stuff that anyone can make no matter their level of cooking, etc. Easy recipes with less than 5 ingredients (plenty with only two or three!).
Are you participating in the Blogging A to Z Challenge? If you are, what theme are you doing?
