It was Julie from Angler’s Rest who kick-started my involvement in the A to Z challenge 2012. She’s written a great guest post on the Challenge pages on tips she’s learned from completing and surviving two challenges. If you’re at all interested in the challenge for next year, do pop over and have a look.
Quite honestly it wouldn’t have occurred to me to start 12 months out but Julie’s certainly got me thinking.
The big advantage of prior planning and writing, apart from not running from pillar to post, is that it leaves you with time to visit other bloggers, something I failed to do adequately this year. I confess I found some downright weird, but then they probably were bored to tears by my family history posts. I found others I really enjoyed reading but haven’t necessarily added them to my Google Reader list which is heavily focused on family history. However I’ll probably pop in from time to time and see what they’re up to.
