Every year, as soon as the A-to-Z Blogging Challenge linky list goes live--sometimes even before--the debate picks up where it left off. Should I, shouldn't I. Pros & cons. So-and-so did (or didn't) last year, and look how that turned out. I don't want to feel hedged in. I don't want to ramble all over the place.
To Theme or Not To Theme. But this year that's not the question, is it? No! Because you--lucky you, insanely genius you--came up with the perfect theme. Beyond awesome. Not just original but unique. Jaw-dropping in its wondrousness.
And you cannot wait to shout it out from the rooftops, can you?
Which is why Vidya Sury, Anna Tan, Csenge Zalka, Samantha Redstreake Geary, and myself decided to turn Awesomeness-Personified Mina Lobo's fantastic idea from last year into tradition.
Ladies and gents, blogging humanity as a whole, I give you--
|Hip Hip HURRAH to Samantha Redstreake Geary|
for creating this Mighty Badge!
Upside(s): Delayed gratification (you know you like it). Super-charged expectations. Build up your A2Z network way before April. This is, in essence, a mini-A2Z--a hop within a hop for hop-addicted homo sapiens like you and me. And--yes, last, but most-def not least: No Theme? No Problem! You have 40 days--yep, forty--to come up with one.
Of course you're in.
Specificae: (Yeah, feminine. That's how we at #TeamDamyanti roll.)
- Sign up in the Linky Thingy below (that sounds vaguely obscene...) and grab the badge above. (Is it me? Do I have a dirty mind?)
- On March 21st, as the sun reacheth the spot known as Spring Equinox, thou shalt reveal your theme! Holler--nay, yawp it from the mountaintop of your blog. And bask in the audience's (ahem, the linky list's) roar of approval.
- Thou shalt, indeed, visit as many other A2Zers on ze linky list as humanely possible. Take March 21st off from work. Cancel any plans that don't involve sitting in front of your screen. Turn off your phone. Stock up your fridge (wine and chocolate chip cookies are of the essence).
Let the fun begin!
