If we were having coffee, I’d tell you it’s been a crazy, hectic couple of weeks. Lots of family stuff going on. We’re gearing up to relocate and haven’t moved in almost ten years, so the packing and sorting is going to be quite the chore. And of course, this weekend is Easter and while you are reading this, I will be at the Little Jedi’s birthday party.
It’s also been a long, long work week. I don’t know if it’s the time of year or the anticipation of Good Friday, but it’s been one of those weeks that just seemed to go on and on. It was a productive one, though.
I’d tell you I am finally done with everything I have to do for Sourcerer to be set for the entire month of April aside from scheduling a few contributor posts that will come in as I need them. Setting up an A to Z Challenge with 11 contributors has been quite the task, but worth it. I have a better idea now than I ever have about how to organize such an undertaking, and I think the next project of this magnitude (always another one for me) will be easier to manage.
Since we’re talking about Blogging A to Z, I’ll tell you I discovered a blogger who is doing a Tolkien-themed challenge on Day 1, and I’m calling it my new find of the week. And I’ll tell you how I am going about doing the visits for the challenge, in case any of you want to follow along.
- I started on Wednesday with the blog right after me on the list (I’m #92).
- I’m visiting in order on Mondays-Saturdays, not paying attention to the codes, and visiting friends who appear after me on the list as well as new blogs.
- I’m visiting as many as I can each day, and leaving comments on at least five.
- On Sundays, rather than continue through the list, I’m visiting from either the bottom or from the top. I’m starting at the bottom this week and will start at the top next week.
- I’m also trying to visit as many of Sourcerer’s commenters as possible this month.
In addition, I am scanning the A to Z Challenge and April A to Z tags on WordPress and liking almost everything. That first one seems the busiest.
I’m sharing as many good ones as Twitter and Facebook as time pemits, and retweeting generously from #AtoZChallenge and #GeekPastiche, which some of Sourcerer’s contributors and a few other bloggers are using to share geeky and nerdy A to Z links this month.
That’s a lot of visiting and sharing, of course. Having the ability to do all that for most of April and to write for May is why I worked so hard to get as much of the A to Z set up ahead of time as possible, and why I decided on reveal day to withdraw this blog from the challenge.
Then I’d grab a second cup of coffee and ask you how your week has been.
