I hear you. You're right. And if you just keep on moving, or realize in this moment that you need to unsubscribe from my e-mail list I'll understand completely. This mommy has been a bad, bad blogger. However, in a fervor of inspiration, when I thought I had truly figured out how to blog along with all of my typical mommy duties, I went ahead and signed up for the A to Z Challenge for the month of April. For the uninitiated, what that means is that I have committed myself to writing one post per day, Monday through Saturday during the entire month of April, where each day's posts corresponds to a letter in the alphabet.
I had toyed with the idea of pulling my name off the sign up list. Then it occurred to me - this challenge is exactly what I need to get my blogging back on track. Once I prove to myself that I can handle this kind of neck-breaking schedule, I will have no problem maintaining a leisurely - but consistent - one throughout the rest of the year.
With all of that in mnd, there was really only one theme that seemed appropriate to tackle this April:
Reviving Your Blog From A to Z
Each post will focus on some aspect of blogging necessary to keeping a blog afloat for the long haul. I'm not talking about monetization here, simply keeping the conversation going. If you have aspirations to make money off of your blogging, that's wonderful, this month will focus on good blogging practices that you will surely need to employ. For the tools needed to translate that all into making money, however, you will need to seek further advice. Consider this the prep guide for what you need to do before you can even think about legitimizing your blog as an income grabber.
I hope you all enjoy the journey and that you stick with me to see what happens once Rivera Runs Through It has been fully revived by the end of the month!
