Ready, Set, GO!

Tomorrow is the kick off for the A to Z Blogfest Challenge. What an exciting time it has been leading up to this moment. I have already met several really neat people because of this. Frankly I can't even remember how I got into this. Somehow I stumbled into it, or was invited, but at any rate, a month ago I signed up (#237 out of almost 800 now). I talked a few friends into joining me, and now we're about to start.

My Post Plans:
My theme is Words - a word a day with the definition and then a short "blurb" inspired by such. Usually I put pictures with my posts - but am not planning to with these. If time permits and inspiration hits, maybe. The word will be in the title - so hopefully some of them will catch readers attention.

Visiting Blogs:
I have installed the visit blog buttons provided by Marcus at Writing Investigated for my own use and yours if you'd like to (look under the A to Z badge in my sidebar). Feel free to install the buttons on your own page if you like, he has provided code and detailed instructions how to do it. I don't know how many I'll get to each day, but hope to visit every blog signed up at least once. Weekends may be my real catch up time.

I plan to follow the blogs that look interesting to me. I am not going to follow just to "follow". I will pay special attention to those with few followers, I remember how much it meant to me to get to 50, and then the followers just started showing up and I still get a thrill every time I see my number increase.

I will try to comment on every blog I visit, even if it is just to say "hello, Sheila was here". As to comments made on my blog, I will try at the end of the day to respond in one "mass" reply. If you want to see that, please choose to receive emails for "follow-up comments".

Happy blogging everyone - let's have fun!
