I “participated” in the A to Z Blogging Challenge.
And I have opinions on it!
- What I wrote in April I had more or less pre-scheduled. I wrote a lot during April, but I had it up and ready to go at least by the day before. That was super helpful, and I intend to do it that way again the next time I participate.
- I didn’t comment well on other blogs. As much as I loathe the word “Linky”, the Linky List (for the love of PETE can’t they call it something else?!) was much easier for discovering new blogs. Posting a comment every day didn’t work for me, although it might have if posting a comment on the A to Z Challenge blog had ever worked. (I think Blogger and I have issues.) The thought of going to Facebook or wherever to post a comment just felt too scattered. I tagged every post with #AtoZChallenge and publicized to Twitter, but got little results. Then again, I didn’t comment well on other blogs. So there’s that.
- The book I wrote and based April’s challenge on (Space Cats in Space) will be up for sale shortly, this month, and A Brief History of Space Cats, and the Care and Feeding Thereof will be available as a separate book shortly thereafter. In print and ebook. Because WORDS, MY FRIEND. I’M IN LOVE WITH WORDS.
- My friends write the best blogs, but I discovered a new one I love, too. Go check out Anjela Curtis and her entries. They were lovely.
That’s all I have. Prescheduled, because I’m awesome. 😉
