Are You Signed Up?

I just signed up and...

wow, I'm number 1321!  

I don't know how many bloggers were involved in the A-Z Challenge my first year, but I'm pretty sure it was around 300.  I'm blown away that it has grown so much!

Thanks to Arlee, the creator and all his wonderful co-hosts for putting it on again this year!  If you're not signed up yet head on over to A-Z Challenge, to sign up and read what it's all about.  Every year I meet so many great new blogging buddies through the Challenge.  And it's a lot of fun to see what everyone comes up with.

Last year's challenge took a lot out of me.  My theme was What My Grandpa Taught Me, and it was right after his passing.  There were many mornings I left my laptop in tears.  By the time May rolled around, I just didn't have the strength to post anymore.  I had used it all up.
I think I maybe wrote ten more posts the rest of the year.

But this year I feel refreshed.
I have a theme all ready (not telling yet!) and it won't bring on the facial waterfalls.  So I'm excited to get started.  I've started planning my posts, but I haven't written any yet.  Hopefully, I'll get to that tomorrow.  In the past, I haven't pre-written posts, but this year for me is all about trying new things.  I'll let you know if it works.

Are you signed up?  Is this your first year or have you been in it since the beginning?
Do you have a theme yet?

Have a great Wednesday!

Kathy :)
