A is for Arlee Bird, Founder of the A to Z Challenge

Today kicks off the annual A to Z April Challenge, in which ambitious bloggers post something every day of the month, corresponding with that day's letter (with Sundays off for good behavior).

This year we are honoring Arlee Bird, founder of the challenge, for his hard work and general awesomeness.  Arelee, thank you for bringing us this challenge, and bringing so many people together each year.  This is only my second year participating, but I had a blast last year!

I haven't fully decided on my theme this year.  I guess we'll find out when I do tomorrow's "B" post.
To anyone who's new to the challenge, welcome!  I look forward to meeting lots of new people, and seeing what kind of themes you all come up with!

Read more about the challenge and see the sign-up list here.


  1. I've seen several nods to Arlee today, which is naturally perfect. :) A genius idea implemented by someone who is truly passionate about bettering the blog community.

  2. So many thank yous to Arlee out there today and it's well deserved. :)

  3. I had not heard about the challenge until today. Thanks for the info! :)

  4. Ah shucks, what can I say but thank you for those nice words. Hope you have a Happy A to Z Challenge!

  5. Returning your visit to my blog! Arlee is definitely awesome. Looking forward to the challenge :)

  6. You have a really cool font and design. Which font do you use? I like how you're part of a crit group. I'd like to get in on that.

    1. Hi Marjorie. My fonts are "rock salt" and "walter turncoat" and both are in the settings in your design tab on blogger. I would suggest Critters if you are looking for a critique group. They have every genre imaginable, and a really nice structure. You can try Forward motion, too, if you're just looking to submit a short piece, though numbers of responses may be limited. Happy writing!

  7. My thanks to Arlee as well!


I'd love to hear your musings :)
