Announcing: The 2017 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge! #atozchallenge


Last week, I posted an advance notice of exciting news about The 2017 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. That teaser got me wondering what we would learn.

Well, the waiting is over and the announcement has been made, HERE.

Not what I thought, but it seems logical. Some bloggers might need to adjust their schedules, but I believe that is feasible.

Read the announcement, then let me know what you think below.

  1. I heard many bloggers complaining about the lack of a list, some even said they are unsure they will partecipate.
    Personally, I think there always comes a time when things need to be changed and I understand that the work of the organisers was huge. Last year’s list was a monster and by the end of the challenge it was some 20% shorter, because of blogs who weren’t active.

    Personally, I don’t think the solution is that bad. There are lots of ways to keep track of something. Last year I relied mostly on my Feedly feed to keep track of the blogs I was interested in, and on Twitter for finding new blogs. I seldom used the list.
    I don’t think having to post my entry to the AtoZ blog will take more than a couple minutes. That’s totally manageble.

    Have you already decided about your theme, Roland? I have 🙂


    • The lack of a list may frustrate a few people but in my case, I link either via the visitors to my site, or to A to Z bloggers that I follow, or via the relevant page on Facebook. That is as many as I can visit. I use that strategy for the monthly IWSG posts – IWSG and A to Z are linked groups.

      As for my 2017 theme, Sarah, I have two options: (i) a North Wales theme to tie in with my Snowdonia mysteries; or (ii) alternative history what ifs that tie in with my Viking Age novel.
      Any suggestions are welcome. I’ve started making list for both.
