April addictions

It's really hard keeping up regular appearances here these days. It's not for the lack of wanting to, but it's just that life and it's many happenings that keeps me rather busy most times.

Being a journalist by profession now, I am technically exercising my writing muscles daily since I am perpetually swamped with assignments. Whilst that in itself is a good thing (since I have chances to improve my writing), the sad thing about it all is that I spend most of my energy writing things for my employer and not on the things I actually want to write and have an interest in (no offense, dear Editor, if you do somehow read this haha :P).

So, in an effort to keep this blog alive and well, and also to reignite my passion for doing my own thing, I hereby declare that I will be participating for the April 2011 A to Z Blogging Challenge! Whee :)

The requirements are simple:
The premise of the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge is to post something on your blog every day in April except for Sundays. In doing this you will have 26 blog posts--one for each letter of the alphabet. Each day you will theme your post according to a letter of the alphabet.
You will only be limited by your own imagination in this challenge. There is an unlimited universe of possibilities. You can post essays, short pieces of fiction, poetry, recipes, travel sketches, or anything else you would like to write about. You don't have to be a writer to do this.  You can post photos, including samples of your own art or craftwork. Everyone who blogs can post from A to Z.

Care to join me? :)

Just visit the link and click on the words "Click here to enter" which is located at the end of the blog post. You'll see this blog's name as participant #764 on the long long long list there. 

If you do decide to join, please drop me a comment. We'll have lots to talk about in April then ;)

Is your background supposed to be a pants pocket? If so that's insanely awesome!

I stopped in to welcome you to the A to Z blogging challenge! I'm a co-host, should you need any assistance or advice just stop on in! I'd love to have you visit my blog! We're also having some fun on twitter during April (Im' @jenunedited)! Look forward to your posts!

Heya! Nice to meet you :) Yes it's *supposed* to be a pocket but I think the template's a bit faulty. It doesn't exactly look like it should :P And yes, I'll definitely stop by your blog :)

Hello there Jo :) Hope this blogging challenge helps you achieve your purpose. All the best! :)
