You know I love doing the A to Z Challenge in April. It nips into my brain at various times of year, helping me to think of a theme, to get ready for the month of April when I’ll be posting every day except Sundays, working my way through the alphabet. About 2000 other people will be doing the same thing this April. We’ll visit each other’s posts, leave comments and calling cards, find people whose stuff we like, and make new friends.
This doesn’t happen by accident. There’s a huge team of hosts and co-hosts working on getting it ready. The sign up list is open, and doesn’t close until the Challenge is just about to start. The hosts have a large number of blogs signed up that they will visit, and encourage, and feature in posts through the month. And each host has a team of about six minions to help them cover this huge list. And that’s where I come in.
I signed up for Damyanti Biswas’s team. Damyanti blogs at the Daily (w)rite and also Amlokiblogs. I followed her during my first AtoZ, and made friends with her last year. She even featured me and the books last summer. So I’ve joined a beautifully international team to help Damyanti carry out her mission – to help participants get the most out of their Challenge experience. You probably won’t see anything different from me on the blog – I’ll just be doing even more beavering away behind the scenes… and proudly displaying the Team Damyanti badge!
PS Watch out tomorrow for a special sign up list!
