Celebrate: Good Luck A-Z-ers & Giveaways

It's almost April and that means
it's time for

The A - Z CHALLENGE!!

(link your daily post to the A-Z comment section here.)



If any Celebrate hoppers are participating in the A-Z Challenge and can't fit in any additional Celebrate posts, you can opt out of our hop for the month of April and you won't be counted as *missing.* Just remember to start posting for Celebrate again in May!

Who's doing the A-Z this year and what is your theme?

My kind and wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge

I'm not going to be participating in this year's challenge. I did it two years ago. I might do it next year. I haven't caught up much with my comments, but I appreciate and love that you always visit to see how I'm doing. :) Thanks for being a great friend! Xoxo

Rhonda Albom said...

I have done the AtoZ challenge for 5 years, and am skipping it this year. My blog seems to be going in a good direction at only two posts per week, and I don't want to mess things up. Good luck to you.

I am in awe of all of you who do this challenge. Although I enjoy writing every now and then (lately, more then than now), a commitment like that is too much work for a lazy soul like me. I enjoy reading and commenting on posts by those that have the ambition to tackle this.

JeffO said...

I salute those everyday bloggers. Too much for me!

T.F. Walsh said...

Every year I wished I could do it, but I just don't have the time... :) Love reading everyone's posts though.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Not doing it this year for the first time ever. Going to enjoy some time off in April.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I haven't joined the A to Z for several years now. Too time consuming.

Natalie Aguirre said...

I've never done the A to Z challenge and don't plan to. It doesn't work for my blog and it sounds like too much work.

Cathrina Constantine said...

I opted out again this year. Good luck to all the A to Z Challengers...

Tamara Narayan said...

Yes, I'm doing A to Z (conspiracy theories) and am greatly relieved that I can take a break, risk-free, from CTST!

TheCyborgMom said...

I literally just decided to participate in this years A to Z two days ago. I'm a procrastinator! I will be posting my theme later today :)

Birgit said...

So I am a panster i guess....I have to still write most of my posts:) My theme is about movies but i am also picking someone who worked on the film whether it be an actor or a writer:)

Stephen Hayes said...

I have too much going on to participate in "The Challenge" but I look forward to reading your posts.

Dr. Theda said...

Hello, dear Lady Lexa... hope that you and yours are well.... did not get signed up (for "A to Z") ... but, will be doing so at our "Crypt"... A will be the witch from Dark Shadows (Lara Parker)...

Kate Larkindale said...

I completely forgot about the A-Z this year, so I'm not doing it. Feels a little weird because I've done it so many years in a row. But times change...

Suzanne Furness said...

Good luck with the A-Z. I'm not participating but hope to pop in from time to time and see what blog buddies are posting about. Have fun.

Sue Bursztynski said...

I didn't realise you were supposed to sign up last year, so I just did it, with Australian crime as my theme, taken from my children's book on the subject. It was fun to do, though I got not as many hits as I would have liked and very few comments. I'll have to think about it...

Kim Lajevardi said...

I've never done A to Z, but I admire those who are up to the challenge. Good luck to everyone who participates.

Patricia Lynne said...

I'm doing the challenge and my theme is 'strange feelings".

messymimi said...

As usual, i will meander through April -- i post daily anyway, i might as well link up and join the fun!

Sharon M Himsl said...

Hi Lexa. Thanks for keeping all of us informed. I'm doing the challenge and have 4 posts yet to write....the most organized I've ever been in an a-z. Maybe this year I won't be so burned out afterwards!
"Female Scientists Before Our Time"

Denise Covey said...

I'm not in it again this year. Haven't made the time. Enjoy it! And thanks for all the offers! You do a superb job!

cleemckenzie said...

Cheering section here. Just not going from A to Z in 2017. You're being so considerate of bloggers on your Celebrate Hop.

Don't have enough time to write as it is. Enjoy!

Unknown said...

Still can't get the hang of the OpenID, which is not working for me to comment and neither is the Wordpress. I just sign my name at the bottom of the post. I'm the Unknown above!

T. Drecker said...

Can't wait to see everyone's A-Z posts! (I'm skipping out again this year.)

L.G. Keltner said...

I'm doing A-Z, though I procrastinated in getting my posts ready this time. Oh well.

Good luck to everyone taking part!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

All the best to A-Z Challenge participants.

J.H. Moncrieff said...

I'm sticking with the cheering section this time around too. My "newsletter" and blog mailing lists have been combined, and I don't think people want an email from me 30 times this month.

As fabulous as I am, that might get old. :)

Shah Wharton said...

I can't fir in the a to z challenge again, this year. :(

Crystal Collier said...

The A to Z challenge is so much fun, but like anything worth doing, it's SOOOOO much work. Which is why I'm not participating this year. I haven't looked to see how many people are in for 2017. Have you?

Lynda R Young said...

I definitely couldn't do another A-Z. I've done two and they were brilliant, but I no longer have the time to spare.

Kim Lajevardi said...

I'm not participating, but cheerleading from the sidelines.

Decadent Kane said...

Participating and my theme is Characters Secrets... because of the nature of this theme some posts may not be suitable for all in the small things hop.
But I'm excited to help out some fellow authors and give readers something they might not find in the books of their authors.

By now, I"m sure your spring cleaning is progressing nicely. I'm glad you have helpful neighbors (at least one) Maybe the other one just wants to be noticed?
Happy Easter and have a great weekend.
