April is coming...

Sounds ominous, doesn't it?

It's almost time for the annual A-Z blogging challenge! That crazy month of April where some crazy people write a blog post every day of the month, except Sundays.

And yes, I'm jumping headfirst.

I think I'm past that stage where, come March, I'd wonder if I should do the challenge. Viv travels every April so I need to take over his duties of dropping Xena to school and brushing her teeth and putting her to bed at night, all of which eats into my work time (and work always seems crazier than ever before in April; Murphy is my chacha after all!), keeping me in a constant state of panic about what to post every day. But now I've reached the stage where I just calmly tell myself, "Of course you gotta do it. Of course there will be daily panic attacks. Of course there will be total chaos. But there will also be FUN. Think about that!"

Soooooo... here we go -- it's ON!

Are you joining the challenge? As a blogger or a reader?

Hi. I don't know whether you remember me or not. I had established contact with you once earlier and you had written a brief mail to me too. Well I read your blog regularly and know about this challenge a little bit from your blog.

I think I can rejuvenate my blog with this. So help me on how to get started. Do I need to register for challenge or align with something? Is there a theme? Many questions like that and I know you are the right one to answer.

So shoot please.

Ranjani,
Thanks so much for your support! :)

Arun,
Thank you! :D :D

Charan Deep,
OMG it's you! What, after like 10 years?? :O Yes, please take up the challenge -- it's a great way to rejuvenate your blog! Details are at: http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/, but this year they seem to have too many constraints so I'm sticking to the basic idea -- on 1st April you blog about something that starts with A, on 2nd April you chill cos it's a Sunday, on 3rd April, you blog about something that starts with B, and so on :) No real need to register, but you can if you want at the link I posted. Theme and all ko maaro goli, it gets too stressful. Just blog. :)

Sayesha - Thanks for writing back. I don't know whether you still don't confuse me with your bachpan ka friend Taran. We have never met. I had read your blog and we had exchanged few mails after that. I think somewhere in 2008 and 2009.

So yes things changed.

Do visit my blog during the period as I am taking up this challenge. Keep me going. I will keep rules simple like yours. :-)

Sayesha said...

Prithi,

Charan,
LOL! I'm not confusing you with my bachpan ka friend Taran Deep Singh LOL! And yes, I remember our emails. :)
Off to check out your blog now!
