I’m sure you know this by now (I might have mentioned it a few times), but I began contributing over at Sourcerer last week. I’ve been excited about it for a while and it is a true joy to be part of the team. I will be providing weekly reviews of Arrow, the latest of which can be found right here.
This leads me to the main subject of the post (you’ll understand in a minute), because I’ve decided to take part in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge 2015. The A to Z challenge has been running since 2010. It takes place during the month of April and involves a post a day, except for Sundays (you’re rewarded for good behaviour!). The twenty-six remaining days, once you’ve subtracted the ones for rest, are dedicated to a themed challenge – beginning on the 1 April with the letter A, and ending on the 30 April with the letter Z. In addition to taking part on my own blog, I will be joining the fun over at Sourcerer too. I have been allocated the letter N, joining an excellent line up of contributors *adopts best Louis Balfour voice* (The Fast Show) ‘Nice!’ I’m so excited about taking part, and will share the theme with you in a future post.

You may have noticed I’ve been posting inspirational quotes on Mondays, in preparation for the #1000Speak project – an event which will take place on the 20 February 2015. If you don’t already know about the project and would like to find out more, click here.
Over the past few weeks, during the course of my adventures, and chatting with Gene’O, I’ve been introduced to some pretty fantastic bloggers. Diana, for example, at Part Time Monster, runs the weekly #WeekendCoffeeShare, which I’ve enjoyed taking part in. I also met Heather and Robin from Writeonsisters.com and have enjoyed exploring their site. A few of my friends have set themselves reading challenges this year, and I’ve been meaning to since I read Callum’s post. Today I found just the right one, inspired by Robin in her Top Ten Tuesday post. So, I’ve joined Book Riot’s 2015 Read Harder Challenge, which I’ll tell you more about next week. I will mention that the list involves a collection of poetry, which is great for me since someone I know is about to publish a collection (isn’t that right, Callum?).
Needless to say I think I’ve found a great starting point this year and I’m really looking forward to taking part in the challenges ahead.
Thanks for stopping by, and please let me know if you’re taking part in the A to Z challenge – it’s my first year so I need all the advice I can get!
