Blogging from A to Z Challenge thingy

Lots of bloggers are blogging about the A to Z Challenge which starts in 3 days, so I thought I'd do a post of my own because now they've got me thinking about it. The challenge is to publish a post a day for each day of April (except Sundays (except for the first Sunday because that falls on April Fool's Day so it doesn't really count as an actual Sunday(???))) with a theme for each post relating to the letter of the day, in alphabetical order. This is a real challenge because I have struggled to post just 13 times a month thus far. It's not that I couldn't post more frequently, but no one has really asked me to.

I'm not going to lie to you, I don't have a huge audience for my humble little blog. It's okay, it's okay. Whatever readers I do have, I love. (You have to blog to get that. And maybe you blog and you are not like that. Maybe I'm the only one. Okay, so I'm weird.)

Anyway, I'm feeling the pressure to keep up the integrity of my blog during this challenge and so, dear readers-- very dear, but very few readers-- my overall theme for the challenge is going to be something that is near and dear to my heart these days: dance. Dance is becoming a predominant theme in my life, and so my plan is to use this challenge to educate myself more about the topic of dance. I will post a lesson a day about dance from A to Z. That way at least I learn something. And I figure, what's not to like about dance. People other than myself may even be interested.

So. That's it. Dance from A - Z starting April 1st.

    1. I'm hooked on it. Of course, now at the tender age of 41, I keep the manufacturers of Aleve in business because of this. I have no idea what I am going to write on the subject, but how can anyone go wrong with dance?

  2. I struggle to blog once a month...every day for a month?! Dancing is fun, looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

    1. Thanks. My strategy was to pick a "theme" to keep me from completely panicking and sitting in front of my laptop just thinking "A....A....A...." for the entire month of April.

      A post a day is going to be a stretch.

  3. I love dancing - when no one is looking! I can't keep a beat or rhythm or move my feet in a coordinated way but that doesn't stop me!

    As for the struggling to post everyday, I found that doing the photo a day helped me a lot. And I've tried to get some posts written (not that I have gotten many done...maybe 5 and only one for the first week!). And the first week of April coincides with spring break and travel plans! Yikes!

    Good luck with the challenge! I look forward to reading your posts!

    1. Hey, my rhythm and coordination deficit hasn't stopped me either. And owning a preschooler has worn down all my inhibitions.

      You did a great job with the photo a day posts. I really enjoyed reading and seeing your photos. Good luck with A-Z. I do not envy your misfortunate timing of spring break and travel. Didn't they check with you?!

  4. I popped in from the A to Z challenge because I was intrigued by your blog title on the link list, "Doctor's Orders" -- so I took a look, and I've signed up to follow your blog. I'm looking forward to your dance posts!

  5. Cool. I'm going to learn something because I dance like a frog with crutches.

    1. dbs, "I dance like a frog with crutches" sounds like the first line of a poem. "...but in my heart, I soar." (I like this)--prompts are fun.

  6. Looking forward to reading your blog every day! The idea of writing something interesting every day is daunting. But dance. . .how wonderful and magical at the same time.

    1. Thanks! Yes, that is a daunting thought...so I'm setting my expectations low. Like, maybe every third post is interesting. That would surpass my expectations. :o)
