I love the A to Z Challenge! This year there has been a little bit of a change, but even that’s ok and doesn’t take away from the fun of it all.
This year there is no list for you to sign up on. It makes the process a little bit more involved for the blogger who wants to participate because now you have to post a link to your site. It takes me about 35 seconds to be honest, so that’s not really a big chunk of time taken away from my morning. When I go to paste the link to my new post, I always take a minute to scroll through the other links that have already been posted. This morning there was over 250 links to choose from! I selected a small handful to read after I uploaded my own link.
On the A to Z site, I always have to change what username appears. It’s on blogger which is connected to Gmail. I am always signed in as my personal account, not my blog account, but it is super easy to change to my username and URL for this blog.
Then, this morning, I headed on over to some of the other blogs I wanted to check out for the first time. I got my hyperlink signature all ready to go so I could leave comments on blogs not connected to WordPress, and then I hit a snag.
All the blogs that I wanted to comment on had the same function as the A to Z website. I would enter in my own username and password, but it would still post as my personal account. I could not change the username identity!
So for all those blogs that I visited this morning who posted some great articles for the letter B – I know you’ll never see this because I can’t actually post to your comments and leave a link for you to come here. Just know that I thought your writing was great and I’ve bookmarked a few of you to return to over the rest of the month!
