It's Kind of Funny..

Title inspired by the book (and movie): It's Kind of a funny Story by Ned Vizzini.
By the way, I thought it was a great YA novel.

Anyways, I was looking through some of my older posts. Kind of like walking down memory lane, you know?

Well, as it turns out, my last post A New Beginning, is my 100th post!

Yeah! Woo!


My blog isn't even a year old.
I've got almost 50 followers.
And 101 (including this one) posts!


Well, that was my good news, now on to a few other things.
First off, the A to Z Challenge in April. Yes, it's two months away. But an event as big as this? You need some time to prepare.
So, here's how it goes:
February- Get used to the idea that you HAVE to squeeze out a blog post every day Monday through Saturday for the whole month of April.

(Hiro Nakamura from Hereos. C'mon, Hiro, bend that space-time continuum!)

March- Prepare you hands and eyes for a bunch of typing and reading. You need to type your posts. Read other people's blogs. Comment on their posts. They will comment on yours. You reply to their comments. March is about preparing yourself for the new friends and blogs you will be encountering next month.

April- YOU BETTER BE READY! FORGET YOUR LIFE! All of your life now depends on your blog and the blogs of the other 500+ people that are participating! (No, you don't have to follow all of them. But find the ones you like, follow those. They might follow you back.)

But, most importantly, HAVE FUN!

Throughout the entire month of April, you will be forming friendships. Your hopes are that they last for however long you blog. It's a chance to read other people's work. To find people with the same interests as you. And you know that at least someone will be reading your posts and commenting on them.

It's about building a community where you all have one thing in common:

You love to blog.

*dramatic pause.*

I really hope you admired that, right there. I had to take advantage of the moment.

But, it's true. I participated last year, and I am totally looking forward to doing it again this year. It'll be fun, so let's do this....

Good luck! :D

  1. I love reaching random times like these. I just recently passed my year-long blogging mark and I was so surprised! It goes by so fast. Congratulations on blogging for 101 posts! Woo!

    And ohmygoodness April. I don't know if I'll be able to do it. I've been barely able to blog once a month! We'll see. I definitely had fun with it last year. ANyway!

    Have a good day! :D

  2. @Naomi: Well, congrats on the one year! I know what you mean. It's hard to believe that a year ago, I had no idea what blogging was like.
    But here we are!
    And, yeah it's hard to even blog every now and then. But I'm excited for April. :)

  3. Good luck with the A-Z blog challenge! I'm doing it too, and I found you off the linky tool list over at Arlee Bird's blog.

    Congratulations on the 100-plus posts too! *Blows a noisemaker.*

  4. Good promo, Wolfie! By the end of April you should be well past 100 followers if not 200.

  5. @ kelworthfiles: Thank you! Good luck to you, too! It's nice knowing people actually READ my stuff :)

    @ Lee: Thank you! I try. :)
    And I hope so. Hopefully I be able to keep them, too. I have a tendency to forget to comment on other people's posts. :(


Thanks for stopping by! I do read every comment and I reply to all the ones that elicit some sort of response. So if you want, you can check back in a couple days to see if I replied.(:
