For the entire month of April, I am taking up fellow blogger, Arlee Bird‘s challenge to post a new blog post each day (except for Sundays: the day to rest my typing fingers). For her challenge, bloggers are invited to create a theme for their posts or just post at random. The one rule is that each day’s post pertains to something that starts with a letter of the alphabet. There are 26 days in the challenge and as many letters in the alphabet. Day one will be to write on a topic beginning with the letter “A”, and so on.
This is a challenge to push bloggers to hone their craft, and to learn to network with other bloggers as well. What a great way to feel like a part of the blogging community! You can see a list of all bloggers who are participating in the challenge or sign up your own blog to participate here (Ink & Stitches is already among the steadily growing number of bloggers).
The first thing I did when I decided to do this challenge, was try to think of a theme. I could focus on only writing, illustrating, crafting, or crochet, but I felt that wouldn’t be fair to my audience who, I hope, are people who want to hear about all of those things. So, I decided to follow in-line with what Ink & Stitches is all about, and thus my theme for the April A to Z Challenge is: Artistic Variety.
I have come up with a calendar of topics to include from A to Z already. I’m also working on finishing the posts ahead of time so I make sure to have time to promote throughout the month. I hope you all tune into my blog each day to see what the day’s topic has in store. If you’re like me and are terrible at remembering to do such things, you can always subscribe to my blog so that you never miss a post!
**Spoiler Alert: I will have a giveaway and freebie coming up throughout the month (I’ll let you take a guess on which days they will show up!), as well as some fun crafts to do, and hopefully by the end of the month, all of you will feel as though you’ve learned something new.**
Enjoy and I hope you keep coming back for more!
