Working on a Challenge - Care to Join Me?

I've not done much crocheting this week, just started another basic granny baby blanket similar to the one I did for a fellow writer.  Too early for pics, but you can see the other one in my Etsy Shop. I'm leaving out the yellow this time to see how it will look with just the honeydew, white and lavender.  So far so good!

Now about the challenge ... I ran across a blog a while back that told of the A-Z Blogging Challenge and was intrigued so signed up to give it a go.  The idea is if you post in your blog every day in April except Sunday, you will have blog posts for each of the 26 letters of the alphabet.  I knew I wouldn't be able to do that with just a blog about crochet, so I signed up all four of my blogs and am committed to posting on at least one of them each day.  I've started a list of topics and think it'll be a lot of fun (That's my real WIP this week!).

If you need motivation to keep your blog fresh by posting more frequently, this may be just the incentive to keep you going.  I've got over 50 of my freelance writer friends to sign up and I'm throwing down the gauntlet to the rest of you now.  You can join me on the challenge by signing up here, then leave me a comment that you've done so.  I'm going to start a blog roll of crocheting bloggers who are in on the challenge, so you can come back here each day and easily see who's posted so you can support them.

So, are you in?

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; I leave each WIP up until the following week. Copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted here.

Make sure to click 'You are next' below to add your link so my readers can follow it to your blog post.

Ooh, that challenge sounds really fun... I'll have to think about whether or not I'm able to do it!

I keep seeing the challenge around....wasn't sure if your blog posts have to be something specific or not.
I have loads of review posts to get completed with more products coming in to review.

Are you no longer doing the WIP every Wednesday. I am not faithful with posting every Wednesday, but really like the idea of it.
