Prepping for the A-Z Challenge

Hahahahahahaha... maybe the headline should be supposedly prepping for A-Z.

See... I entered both my blogs. I realized recently that trusting that I'll just be churning out two posts a day six days a week for a month while adapting to office life

Sadly... I realized this the day before yesterday. So my time is running really low. And I still have to edit. And visit blogs... and... and... and...

Also, my body picked today to pick up a cold/flu virus, so I spent most of my day staring blankly at the computer screen.


I will not lose my handle on the situation, though. I'm just going to do my best to get control over the amount of hours in my day. And then I'm going to get some edits and blog posts done.

What about you? Joined the A to Z Challenge? How are the preparations going?


  1. I, too, am doing both of my blogs. I literally just finished pre-pending and formatting post number 26. Only 26 more to do. Maybe I'll have them done by Tuesday. Really, though, I just need to get another 13 done next week, so I'm ahead of the first half of the month. Hopefully I'll have them all done.

  2. I entered three of my blogs. I don't like to write the posts in advance (although rough drafts and detailed notes are okay), but I took several weeks to do my research and choose the topics for two of them. Since the third blog is mainly about pets in urgent need of adoption, I wouldn't be able to write those posts very far in advance anyway.


  3. You can do it!
    I have three-fourths of my posts ready to go. As a co-host, I've got to stay on top of things...

  4. That's a lot of blogging - but I'm sure you wouldn't have signed up both blogs if you didn't think you could do it!

    I have a complete blank on about 5 letters - the first being D! And X - does anyone have an X?

  5. I haven't written much of anything yet. Two blogs in the challenge will mean you have a whole lot of writing going on.

  6. My goodness, that's a lot of writing you've taken on! I'm in the challenge but I can't even decide on a theme, much less write any posts.

    Get well soon!

  7. I finished pre-scheduling all of my A to Z posts two days ago. This year, I am ready.

  8. I've got to get back to pre-writing my posts now the my blog tour is over. Thanks for the reminder.

  9. I hope you're feeling better. This is my first year doing the A to Z Challenge. I'm nervous even though I do have all the posts done.

  10. I hope you feel better soon!

    I'm almost halfway through scheduling posts. Made a mistake earlier today and accidentally posted "K" on March 12, which means all the blogrolls and readers now say I updated with it. :P

  11. I'm wimping out and taking a blogger break during April. That's the only way I'm likely to get some writing done.

    Feel better soon Hon.


  12. Hope you feel better, Misha. I am also participating in A to Z. I started working on this a month ago, so I'm doing okay. I look forward to reading your posts!

  13. Hey Misha,
    Oh no, another person doing that challenge that brings further awareness of the alphabet! Of course, you might be vaguely beware that last year and yep, this year, I shall be doing my alternative satire postings on the A to Z thingy ma jiggy :)
    Oh gosh, a zillion and one bloggers started with "A" is for "Apple". Help me!
    Hope you are now feeling better. Wouldn't want you staring blankly at the screen.
    Seriously, have fun with the challenge and all that are doing it, have fun.
    Kind wishes, shy, humble, unassuming Gary who will now go back to his not worth reading blog.....

  14. Don't worry, the necessity of sleep is really over-exaggerated! Good luck!

  15. I've joined the challenge but really can't make my mind up on a theme. So I haven't written any posts yet, and I'm also going on holiday for a week in April! Really need to pre-schedule something soon...


Thanks for commenting! I love to read what you think.
