Up for a Challenge?

It’s that time of the year again

It’s that time of the year again. That’s right. April is so near, so if you’re a writer or a blogger, it’s time to put on your thinking cap once more and write, write, write, for the A-to-Z Challenge is so back!

In case you have not come across this until now, “…the A to Z Challenge is posting every day in April except Sundays …On April 1, blog about something that begins with the letter ‘A.’ April 2 is ‘B,’ April 3 is ‘C,’ and so on. You can use a theme for the month or go random – just as long as it matches the letter of the alphabet for the day.”

Wait, there’s more! You get to meet other bloggers and gain new followers, too. I know I did. To know more, just click on this link right HERE. Then sign up yourself, if you’re up to the challenge. Do make sure that you do it properly and get signed up successfully. I only just got listed today because when I first did that, I think that was more than a week ago, I was led somewhere else. Good thing I checked today.

The A-to-Z 2015 Schedule

Writing for the whole month could really be a challenge. I know because I struggled last year. If you have lots of time in your hands and enough creativity or zeal, there probably won’t be any struggle at all. My problem was lack of time and a tendency to be OC. I did try to finish even way past April. The funny thing was I was not able to finish — funny because all that’s left was the letter ‘Z,’ LOL!!!! And that’s because I couldn’t think of any other good way to end except with “Zombie.” More LOL-ing!!! Very predictable, unoriginal, if not redundant on my part.

Currently, I am not sure how I will fare this year, considering my situation. But the key point here is to try and have time to write. So come on, let’s try!!! (Do check out the calendar at right for your guidance).

My comment they most probably won’t approve

I just posted this comment on a page where MY writeup How To Improve Site Performance? Audit, For Business’ Sake! can be found:

Excuse me. I wrote this through MyBlogGuest. Kindly put my name back or delete the post entirely…Thank you.

Why? ‘Cause I just got fed up waiting for them to put my name back as author. It’s bad enough that they didn’t put my name back, but somebody else’s name and mug is there. I sent them a message already ages ago, to no avail. Just because Google messed up and they probably got hit by Google, it doesn’t change the fact that I wrote it.

Talk about taking credit for other people’s work! It would have been acceptable if it was some ghost-writing job that I or our company got paid for, but it was a guest-blogging thing that did not involve money, only a chance for exposure, that of the writer and that of the publisher. It’s supposed to be a mutually beneficial thing.

Let’s see what they’ll do next. IF they do what I’ve asked them to do, I will take down this post. If not, sorry, tough luck. Maybe I’ll do something else and then we’ll also see what’s going to happen.
