As most of you should know by now, I'm taking part in the A-Z Blogging Challenge (there's still time to sign up; do it, do it now!). There are two main parts of the challenge; to write 26 alphabetical posts throughout the month of April, and to visit other bloggers on the A-Z sign up list and comment on their alphabetical blog posts. Bloggers will get to make contact with new bloggers, and will be able to extend their online community.
Leading up to the challenge, I've been stopping off at a lot of blogs on the list, just to make myself known and to encourage those taking part in the challenge. While browsing a few blogs, I came across something called "Celebrate The Small Things". This is the brainchild of 'VikLit', and she outlines everything on her blog, Scribblings of an Aspiring Author.
Once a week (on a Friday), you write and publish a post about something that you've achieved during that week. It can be a small or large achievement, from passing an exam to tidying out a drawer. It doesn't matter what it is; it just has to be something that you're pleased about.
Since thinking about the A-Z challenge, I've realised that I don't blog enough. I'm excited about being able to post every day throughout April, and by taking part in Celebrate The Small Things I'll have a reason to continue blogging and posting things that I hope will be of interest to some people. Plus, it will be a tiny slice of positivity in a world where we get bogged down with bad news whenever we look outside.
The posts will be made each Friday, so I've got a few days before I can start, but I can keep my eye out for something to celebrate.
