I AM A MINION. The incredible A-Z Blogging Challenge staff advertised for minions to help out during April, and I answered the call! L. Diane Wolfe @ Spunk on a Stick recruited me, and I’m proud to be one of Spunky’s Soldiers! Diane’s other Spunky Soldiers are:
Clarissa Draper @ Listening to the Voices
Golden Eagle @ The Eagle’s Aerial Perspective
Gwen Gardner @ Gwen Gardner, YA Fiction Author
Tyrean Martinson @ Tyrean’s Writing Spot
Sia McKye @ Sia McKye Over Coffee
This will be my third consecutive year participating in the April A-Z Blogging Challenge. It’s my favorite blogfest, and I’m looking forward to helping out! (Despite this post's title, I'm not planning a mutiny. ;) No worries, Diane!)
Did you sign up yet??? Click here to participate in the year's greatest blogfest! You have until April 1, so there's still plenty of time!
My #1 tip for the Challenge is to start preparing some of your posts now. I like to have all my posts written and scheduled before April. If you don’t want to do that or don’t think you can make the time, consider just choosing the topic for each letter now. That way you’ll already have an idea what to post that day! (Nicole has a terrific idea on what to post on Mondays during April. Click here to read about her Monday Movie Meme!)
My #2 tip for the Challenge is to start your blog visiting/commenting with the blog AFTER yours on the sign-up list. I think last year was the first time the staff made this suggestion, and it was brilliant. It made commenting seem more manageable because I could easily keep track of the blogs I’d already visited and was able to get around to so many more blogs.
Side Note: If you’re into crafts, DIY projects, and recipes be sure to check out my best friend’s blog, Stella Marie @ Domestic Evolution. She began blogging only a couple months ago, and this will be her first time participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. She’s working really hard to prepare her posts, and I know she’ll have 26 wonderfully creative projects and delicious eats to share with you!
Are you participating in this year’s A to Z Blogging Challenge? Do you have any helpful tips to share?
