E is for Eleven Things

E is for the number Eleven.

Eleven things I like about the A-Z Blogging Challenge:

1. It's in April, which is not too busy for me, as opposed to May, when the long birthday season starts in our family.

2. We have Sundays off.  So we can catch up on missed episodes of Downton Abbey, or scramble to write the next six posts.

3.  It exposes us to writers of all kinds all over the world.

4.  It cranks my brain every year trying to come up with an 'X' word and a 'Q' word.

5. The sign-up link is easy-peasy.

6.  I've made some real friends through the A-Z Challenge, folks I've stayed connected to since my first year.

7.  One some days, when I can't think of anything good to write, I can write crap, and it still counts.

8.  I get to display a fun badge on my blog for a month, letting readers know, yes, I have joined this crazy circus once again.

9. There are many topics for the letter "S."  This is always an easy post for me.

10.  Having blogs categorized by topics/themes really helps me sort through the maze. 

11. Every year, when the Challenge ends, I'm pooped and think I won't sign up next year.  But, then I do.

 I like that.

LOL with #11, I was thinking the same thing today, but I continue to sign up :)

Good luck with the rest of the challenge!

Yup...we're all crazy for doing this, but it really is such fun. I'm loving all of the great bloggers I'm getting to know this year. I think that's my favorite part. I most likely would never have found most of these wonderful people (including you) had it not been for A to Z. Elle @ Erratic Project Junkie

I wish April was our downtime! It's ridiculously busy around here. Why? Why did I sign up for this?? To say your post was timely is an understatement. :)

That's a good list! Like you, I'm hooked. Would take an earth shaking event to keep me from the Challenge.

This is so cute! I'd have to agree with all of them, especially the Sundays off.

I like this list! One of my main reasons for signing up is that by posting on my blog so much, I'm forced to write and become more familiar with the features of my blog.
