April A to Z, 2014

Since I’m visiting 5 or more new blogs every day for a month, I’ve decided to build a page and link to them. It only takes a second to copy and paste an address, and I have to load the pages anyway,

so it seems like a waste of productivity not to take the extra second to do this.

Links will go to specific posts for the days I visited, so we’ll end up with at least five for every letter. I’m not necessarily updating the page every day. Don’t assume I’m falling behind on the challenge if you see this page get a little behind.

Friends who are also blogging A to Z: Part Time Monster, Rose B. FischerNot A Punk Rocker, MusicFanAndrea, Destino, and David of Comparative Geeks. David and his wife Holly write CG together, and they’re also doing the challenge with that blog.

I may have other friends doing the challenge; if so, I’ll add them as I discover their A to Z posts. The list is for new blogs I’m visiting each day. I’m visiting my friends as often as possible during the challenge, and leaving comments to let them know I stopped by. Part Time Monster is always my last stop, and I usually drop at least one link there to a blog I think she’ll like. (My tentative topic list is here; some of these will change, but not many of them will.)

These are all blogs coded (WR), and people who have commented on my blog. So not all entries here will necessarily be writing-themed. Beginning April 13, about halfway through the challenge, I’ll use the Sundays to do re-visits, so the “one link per blog” rule does not apply to the last three Sundays.

      You’re very welcome! I’m glad you like the idea. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to build such a mighty list, especially since I have to load the pages to comment, anyway.

      YW.

      Should end up with 150 unique blogs, and mostly writing-oriented, by the end of the challenge, if I manage to make it all the way through.

  8. […] First of all, thanks to regular contributors @quaintjeremy and @hohmeisw for keeping Sourcerer so well-supplied with posts lately. If it weren’t for you guys, there’s no way I would have made it to the halfway point of the A to Z Challenge with The Writing Catalog. I’ve discovered lots of good blogs through A to Z, and you can find many of them on my April A to Z page. […]

      You’re welcome! I figured since I was doing most of this work anyway, I’d add ten more minutes to the daily routine.

      Since the whole point is to post six days a week and visit new blogs, at least as I understand it, there isn’t a lot of time left over for revisits. So this is a way for me to keep up with who I’ve met during the challenge and keep up with them once it’s over.

      Oh. And introduce the bloggers I visit to a few friends who are also doing A to Z. 😉
