Writing for the A to Z Blog Challenge

Writing for the A to Z Blog Challenge
  • Last year was quite productive, so I signed up again for the A to Z Blog Challenge. Over 1500 bloggers participate in this challenge to write a new post daily following the alphabet. If you’re a blogger and haven’t tried a challenge, it’s a marvelous way to build a habit of writing.

It started April 1st, so my first effort was A Is for Aviatrix. It’s posted on my Discovering Mom blog where I write about my mother. I started that blog after her death as a tribute to her and to store my memories

On the 2nd day, I wrote B Is for Big Rocks. The blog gives me a place to share photos from the family album so my sisters and cousins can add them to their albums.

Day 3, the post was C Is for Company’s Coming. It’s an essay that Mom wrote that hadn’t been published before.

D is for Depression Era Cooking features another of Mom’s essays that I tracked down on the Wayback Machine. I’ve had fairly good success finding some of her articles previously published on eHow. Hopefully it finds a safe place online with the blog.

For Easter Sunday, I pulled out some of my 1950s memories and some of Mom’s 1930s stories to share in E is for Easter Memories.

A concern of mine matched up with an old article of Mom’s in F is for Fear of Falling. You don’t have to be old, as any age can benefit from her recommendations.

Did you know that there is such a thing as a ghost cat? Read about the one that lived with my parents in G Is for Ghost Cat – Little Cat and TC.

I worried about keeping up with the daily posts. My sister came to the rescue with this recipe and memory H is for Hash and Other Economies.

Here’s the 9th post for the challenge, I is for In-the-News. Check it out to see what Mom did that was newsworthy.

There’s more to come, so if you’d like to follow along, you can subscribe to the blog, Discovering Mom, or join her Facebook Fan Club where links are posted.

Here’s the rest of the alphabet:

    What a beautiful line up, Virginia, I love how you honour your mum. Your love and care shines through. And what a beautiful gift for the younger generation in your family. You inspire me. Thank you.
