April’s A-Z Blogging Challenge 2012


I have decided to have another go this year. So far 372 of us have signed up to join in with writing posts related to a particular letter of the alphabet during 26 days of April. I’ve copied the schedule below from the challenge blog for my own easy reference.

Now last year I went eclectic, writing on lots of different topics but this year I am going to go with the theme of my WIP (Work in Progress) – not looking forward to some of the letters! I’m hoping that this will motivate me to work on it more. I suspect that I will schedule many of the posts.

As a preview below are links to four posts I’ve already written about ‘Training Time’ – I hope they whet your appetite.

What I, Jane Thomas, resolves to do this year

New Year’s Resolutions – Gabrielle Sanders

T is for… Time Travel

P is for… Pegasus

If you are foolhardy and hope to join in click on the picture below that will take you to the challenge blog to sign up to the blog hop linky (sorry I can’t post it here – refuses to allow javascript).

January Photo and Small Stone a Day Challenge complete

Although you can see my daily Photos and read the small stones on the Tumblr link I have also been using the my365 app on my phone to capture the photos too because I like seeing them in calendar form.

Here’s the link to today’s picture and the completion of the January calendar- Pylines

I’m loving the photo apps on my phone and finding it nearly impossible to leave my photos untouched or filtered. Snapseed (the drama filter in particular) is still my favourite – so grateful to iTunes for having that free as part of their 12 Days of Christmas promotion. I’m also finding pictures of the sky or nature feature as my favourites despite (or maybe because of) me spending little time outdoors.

Writing small stones is harder because it takes more brain power but there are a few that I really like.

So 1 month down 11 months to go until I can sign two more things off my Bucket List.

I’ve also been keeping up with the Oh Life journalling which I’m not enjoying as much though it has been a good reminder tool.

100 words in 100 days has fallen by the wayside a bit (as I feared it might).
