pre-challenge post

So, tomorrow is the start of a wonderful challenge called "A to Z April 2011 Challenge". It is huge!!
I am very happy to be part of it.

My theme for Reach for The Sky is:

As per the advice from the "A to Z..." co-hosts I will limit the posts to 200 words. My aim is to thank for max 5 things per letter, believe me, the list for each letter got so long I had to make some rules for myself! Some letters are no too popular, so it will be less than 5. But still, I will keep up with the gratitude mood that I have developed on my less official Blog.

Same as on English Speaking Zone, I wanted to make a note of some basic stats.
I would also like to know what will change (anything at all ;) ) after the challenge.

Thank you for this challenge, it's keeping me happily busy thinking about all that I could ever be thankful for....alphabetically :)


  1. Good luck! :-)

  2. Hi I found you via the #atozchallenge hashtag on Twitter. I'm taking part in the A to Z too. I'm really looking forward to seeing what everybody's going to be doing. I've decided to limit my blogs to 40 words exactly. Hope I can manage to keep it that brief!

  3. Yay! Can't wait for the start of the challenge!

  4. I think you've got a great theme - get ready for those numbers to skyrocket next month!

  5. @Rosalind - Thank you for following

    @Talli - I'm rolling over with excitement!

    @Alex - Thank you, I always appreciate your comments! :) I'll do a post-challenge stats review after the challenge... :)

  6. Way to go! Will follow your A to Z posts!

  7. Gratitude is a great theme for the Challenge!

  8. Thank you for your support! It's really exciting :)

  9. Looking forward to reading your A to Z! Have fun! (love your bucket list!)

  10. You're in for a great ride, that's for sure! :) I can't tell how much can change after a month of doign so (I take it you're in it for a month of April, right?), but having done it for the whole year my life changed dramatically - everything was basically turned upside down for the better. If you're curious, I wrote about some of those changes here: and here:

  11. @bonniejames - Thank you :)

    @Julia - I'm looking at your posts now, thank you for recommending some with links. I've started before April, it sort of came along, and then I didn't want to let go of that theme, so I decided to do it throughout April....
    Thank you for your comment!
