If you haven’t participated in this fun blog challenge yet, you might want to give it a try this year. It’s a wonderful way to make new blogger and writer friends, and it’s a super way to get yourself in a regular blogging and blog-hopping routine.
During the A to Z challenge, participants post each day except Sunday, which magically works out to 26 posts, each title/topic using the letters of the alphabet (in order, of course).
I tried posting random topics one year, but found the whole month is easier if I develop a theme.
Tips from my own experience:
1. Keep your posts relatively short — I’n more likely to follow/read those that are 300 words or less.
2. Illustrate posts using your own photographs or art work.
3. Humor gets a lot of hits and attracts more followers.
4. Limit your guest bloggers and other regular features during the month. Last year I ended up having to write two separate posts several times during the month.
