The Return of Schedule Woman, Part 1

To My Dearest Blog,
Hello my sweet “Life is Good”! I'd like to apologize for leaving you stranded, all alone, while I was out chasing dreams. Yes, that's my excuse. I'll explain. Dreams.
As my first-born child, you do know that I had no blogging experience before you came along. You alone know how much I've learned and how far I've come. You know how exciting I think it is to meet new people and you do have to admit, don't you like it when new friends stop by to say hello, right? And then they promise to come back! That they don't want to miss anything we have to say!

Yes, it's a we. Without you, I don't have a voice. Without me, you don't have a source. Together we're making this gig work.

Yes, the dream thing. OK, was just trying a little spin-doctoring thing on you to see if you'd fall for it, and be all “buttered up” for what I'm about to say. OOPS. You're just too smart for that sort of stuff now. I should have realized it. But here's the deal. My dream is to write a book that people will read. To be able to do that, I have to practice writing a LOT. Finding stuff to write about each day while you're in your own little corner of the Blogworld can be very hard. That's why the A-Z Challenge was born – to get people to write! Well that, and learn the alphabet ;-) Sorry for tricking you into thinking I'd finally shut UP already about April. I refuse.

However, I do have some new promises. To get in shape for April, I'm putting us on a stricter schedule than we're used to. No more waiting to blog when the mood should (if?)strike. We are going to be working out every other day. It will be fun! Really! At least try, that's all I'm asking.

P.S What??  You don't know about April and the challenge?  No worries.  Click the badge over there to get to the host blog.  There are 13 co-hosts and I'm one of them.  The Blogging A to Z April 2012 Challenge blog is full of tips, ideas, hints, explanations, banners, buttons, etc.  Grab some bling to dress up your place, sign onto the linky to join the challenge.  You can do that all over the world since it's a blog-hop.  That means that if you sign up here (click on the tab between the header and the start of this post) and then later when you go to the A-Z blog, you'll see your name there, too.  A truly remarkable little gadget, and each of the co-hosts has it on their blog.

Good idea for a workout! I will try it myself. I just hope I don't bore anyone :)
