In April I plan to post fast and easy. No pressure. Which gives me more time to go around visiting a whole lot of new blogs. Right now the A to Z Challenge list is pushing 300. Many of these are new to me. I intend to stop by, introduce myself and become a new follower. And the challenge will be to do it without increasing my typical blogging time.
I'm looking forward to doing short posts daily and alphabetically. Anyone who has followed me for awhile knows that my posts tend to be long. Plus (you don't know this, big secret coming) I edit the crap out of them before clicking publish. I'll still blog about writing, editing and publishing issues. Only with a lot fewer words. Ha! There's the real challenge!
When I hosted the Labor Day BBQ, many who participated reached new heights of follower counts. It's simple really-- something like this gives you an excuse to go visit new blogs and introduce yourself. In turn, people will come to your blog, leave a comment and follow.
There were more than 200 participants in the Labor Day BBQ. The A to Z Challenge looks like it will be at least twice that, judging by how fast people are signing up. If you are looking for a fun way to get a whole lot of new followers for your blog, this is it. However, I'm having modem problems on my laptop. Thinking perhaps I need an ipad... by April....hmmm, yes, definitely an ipad.
