Tomorrow marks the start of a month-long global blogging challenge. Bloggers will write their way through the alphabet, one day at a time, six days a week. Sundays are post free unless you’re scrambling to catch up or still have something left to say after the week.
The A to Z April Challenge started in 2010 and this is my fifth year of participating in this global blogging event. Each time I sign up I question myself about why I’d willingly put myself through a month of stress and commitment like no other. It’s the commitment that hooks me each time; that and to get motivated to write again. It takes courage to front up six days a week to post and something sane and plausible.
We are once again on the road, to complete our loop of Australia. We started in 2018, got part way around before heading southwards in a mad dash to visit our new grandson and his parents in Melbourne. After that, things went haywire, we purchased a home and settled down – which not part of the plan. However, when the east coast bushfires rampaged through our small village of Lake Conjola, followed three weeks later by devastating floods, we figured it was time to make a break for it and head for the hills. Anywhere away from mayhem.
… and here we are with the truck, Coddiwomple and each other heading westwards to complete the loop. Most posts for the challenge will feature places we have visited during this second part of our Australian ventures. At other times there will be captioned photo posts and I’m thinking about writing a couple of Stream of Consciousness posts … always fun.
I hope you’ll join me on the journey through April. 398 have signed up so far and more will be added until 5th April close off. If you’d like to know more about the challenge or maybe sign up, all the information can be found here.
