At the last check the blogroll was up to 318 participants in this year’s A-Z Blogging Challenge. Remember sign up continues until the first week in April so many more will join before kick off 1st April. This has been an annual April event started in 2010 which means this is the tenth anniversary. Impressive.
I haven’t participated for a couple of years now because I’ve been too busy but this year I’m a little more organised (bwa-ha-ha) and have a little more time. Plus, it will be a good distraction as we make our way first north and then west towards our new home. We take possession early May.
So, I’m posting today to reveal my theme. This year, I will once again be blogging about one of my favourite activities when I take you with me as we continue our Big Fat Aussie Road Trip. We have been on the road nine months and join other retirees who travel the highways and byways of this great land in their caravans.
Having packed my “proper” camera (Canon DSLR) into storage (complete brain fade) the photos have been taken with my smartphone – an HTC Desire Pro 10 (20MP camera) – which I love.
To get something posted 6/7 days each week during April, posts will be short with photos: perhaps an intro to the place followed by a selection of favourite photos of that campsite or town. Because we can’t travel the country in alphabetical order – how bizarre – posts will be dated appropriately when we spent time in those towns. It may be disjointed if you’re trying to make sense of chronology but I’m going with the flow of the alphabet.
You can appreciate internet coverage is not always reliable in the more remote areas – we use mobile data – in which case posts may be delayed until we have coverage.
I hope you’ll join me on this venture and if the idea gels with you consider joining up here … there’s still time.
