I’d like to welcome two bloggers from last year’s A to Z Challenge, Patricia and Yvonne. I met both of these amazing ladies last year during the Challenge (see – you’ll make some great friends this way!) and they’d like to share their thoughts with you.
The 2010 A to Z Challenge was such fun that I hope to do it every year. In addition to the usual things we say about making new blogger friends and sticking to a schedule, I found the challenge helped me think and plan ahead. I worked to create and stick to a theme for my 26 posts, and I wrote most of the posts in advance instead of the last minute. So come on, April challenge. I'm ready.

And from Yvonne:
THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2010:
Last year I decided to take part
In the Blogfest called A to Z.
It was the brilliant brainwave of Arlee Bird,
And what a difference it's made to me.
You see I had been blogging for a few years,
And followers only a few.
When I had finished the Challenge
They had more than doubled, this I relate to you.
It was the best decision I had made
To get my poetry on a wider scale.
I've made some wonderful friends into the bargain
But that's another tale.
If you're still unsure whether to participate
Take a tip from me.
You'll be pleasantly surprised at the outcome,
This I can guarantee.
For those of you still on the fence. take the plunge! What have you got to lose? Nothing. But you’ve a wealth of friendship, experience, and knowledge to gain…
Oh, and there’s a rumor going around… I’ll address it on Wednesday.
