The first is the A-to-Z April Blogging Challenge. If you have a blog, it’s not to late to sign up for the fun! And it is fun, too. You may think, “What would I write about? Who would care to hear from me every day? How could I be interesting enough, day after day?” My dears, I never let those questions bother me!
ANYWAY, the posts are supposed to be short, because there are so many participants we have no hope of all reading all of one another’s posts every day. The fun is in finding new blogs that we do want to follow after April, and meeting new online friends. It’s loverly. And, of course, you don’t have to blog in order to use the list of participants to find kewl new blogs.
For instance, Foodaholic. Maria Nasir posts the most heavenly recipes! OMG, it makes me drool, just typing this sentence. ~slurp~ I can put on ten pounds just looking at the pictures. “Love for all things yummy,” indeed! Mmmmm….
Here’s a nifty theme for the A-to-Z challenge: AJ Lauer writes interactive fiction, and she’s doing a serial interactive adventure in April! “We are going to follow a character through an adventure and my visitors every day will vote in the comments section about what direction they want to see the character go.” Fun!
Have I told you about the Carnival of the Cats? It’s a weekly compilation of links to cat blogs or posts about cats. I learned about it from the late Mr. Nikita, Mistress Elvira, and Miss Sneakers. Go take a peek!
It was through one of those links that I found Athena and Marie and their Caturday Art Blog Hop, where participants post arty photos (they don’t have to be good art!) of their cats. Amidala and Munchkin want to join, so that might happen.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Send one of your characters to a carnival.
