A to Z Blogging Challenge: A is for...

...Announcement, Agenda, and Anniversary!

Here's an ANNOUNCEMENT:  Today is the start of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!

Over the course of this month, I will be taking part in this challenge and will be posting a new blog entry each day (except Sundays -- well, other than today), covering each of the 26 letters. 

Since my blog is dedicated to my writing efforts, it seems wrong to go off on tangents unrelated to that, so my AGENDA for this blog's participation in the A-to-Z challenge will be this:

Each post will be a short one (there are many, many bloggers taking part, and the goal is to allow readers to visit as many as possible), covering a topic related to my writing.  Beginning tomorrow with "B", I will address elements of effective writing that I want my work to have.

But for today, my letter-A-centric post will be this Announcement, telling you what my Agenda is, and:

Wishing a heartfelt "Happy ANNIVERSARY" to my wonderful wife!!!  Yes, today (4/1) is my 12th wedding anniversary!  Even more than that -- it's my wife's birthday, too!!  So please allow me the non-writing-related indulgence of using today's post to thank her for twelve fabulous years and to send her love and warm birthday and anniversary wishes!

I hope you stop by and enjoy each of the next 25 entries in this challenge!  In the meantime, click HERE to see the full list of all the bloggers taking part in this alphabetical blogathon.  Visit as many of them as you can!

Happy A-B-C's!!!

Hello, I'm visiting you from the A - Z challenge :)

What a sweet post! I'd like to get married on my birthday too, that would be cute. Happy anniversary and Happy Birthday to your wife! I look forward to reading more from you during the challenge.

It's nice to meet you!

Hi there! Found you through the challenge as well; I'm looking forward to keeping up with your posts. Also, happy anniversary. :) It's mine as well! (Do people also make fun of you for your anniversary being on April Fools Day...?)

Jess and Judy said...

Too all: Sorry I missed the kick-off yesterday (but at least I got my A post up -- Thank you, Blogger pre-scheduling!). I was on a weekend Anniversary getaway with my wife and got back very late. Thank you for stopping by and commenting -- I'll be sure and hit your blogs ASAP!

@Chris S: Thank you! I look forward to visiting and reading your blog also!

@Deniz: Thank you and nice to meet you, too!

@DL: Thanks, Don!

@Nikki: Thank you! It's nice to meet you, too! I look forward to visiting your blog also!

@jessica: Hello to you too! And (slightly belated) Happy Anniversary to you, too! Yes, especially when I tell them that it's my wife's birthday too -- they're at first sure I'm trying to do an April Fool's on them, lol!

@Jess and Judy: Thank you -- I'm eager to visit your blog as well!
