Did you notice my new outfit? I decided that it was time for some spring cleaning, and some new clothes. I've moved some buttons around, I've deleted some blog-hop ads that are no longer current, but most importantly: I got a new banner, custom-made, just for me, by the ultra-cool, Retro-Zombie Jeremy Hawkins himself!
Jeremy is one of the A-Z Challenge co-hosts, and badges, buttons, and banners are his bread and butter! I know that's an old cliché...but I'm a nerd, will always be a nerd, and I wanted all those words to start with B.
If you're in the mood for a new outfit, or just some new gadgets, here are some ways to find A-Z bling – you ARE joining the April Challenge, aren't you? The sooner you say yes, the sooner you can start planning, and the more fun you'll have. What have you got to lose? Nothing. What can you gain? Readers. Followers. Blogs to read. Blogs to follow. FRIENDS!
Jeremy's post at the main A-Z Blog has excellent instructions for installing all the cool "stuff" he's made for the challenge. If you click on the tab "A-Z Badges and Banners" you'll find his work, free for the taking IF you're joining the challenge. We need all of you to help us spread the word, so we're offering it all for free to you!
If you want to visit the Retro-Zombie at his own house, go here. Of course, there are 13 total of us co-hosts, each with our area of expertise. I suggest you visit us all at least to say "hi" and that you're joining us. It would be extra good to follow each of us since we're your guides. You'll find all the links in my side-bar under the badge.
To answer your unspoken but very clearly heard question: NO. I'm not only going to be blogging about the challenge from now on. It's just that our prep is taking a large share of my blog time, so I've just been throwing stuff up that's been rattling around in my brain taking up bandwidth. If I write it down, at least I know it's safe and retrievable! Information in the correct place is a sanity saver. I need all the sanity I can beg, borrow, or steal right now...
