The very first thing I did in 2010 when I started blogging is a series of A to Z posts. I tend to write only when I’m inspired and having a plan of sorts helped keep me consistent and focused. It also dampened my fear. For me, writing requires that I expose a bit of my soul, and that continues to be a source of anxiety that I must overcome.
Last year, I found the A to Z Blogging Challenge and decided to re-blog all of my original alphabet posts because I had met so many new friends – other writers, bloggers, and readers from my work at BigWorldNetwork.com – that I wanted to share those posts again. Thus, I did my own unofficial challenge and was able to concentrate on other writing projects.
This year, I am taking up the gauntlet and smacking my lazy, unprofessional, blogging habits upside the head with it. I am officially entered in the 2013 A to Z Blogging Challenge and will post once a day – with Sundays off for good behavior – beginning April 1st with letter A.
Since I’ve been feeling especially nostalgic lately for my days as a freight pilot, I’ve decided to present an aviation inspired theme for the Challenge. So, please stop by again and take a flight down Memory Lane with me. You can sit on the cargo. It’s pretty comfy.
