Reflections of a Nice Girl Writing Naughty

2016-05-09 A-to-Z Reflection [2016]

This is the second year the Nice Girls Writing Naughty have participated in the A to Z Blogging Challenge, and the first year here at our new home on the web.  When I first proposed it, it seemed like a fun way to get to know our readers and meet other bloggers.  It’s become so much more.

We have, currently, eleven members in our group.  In March, I create a spreadsheet detailing which days go with which letters.  Then we talk about which of us want to participate and divide up the month accordingly.  April was a busy month for us, with two new book releases and the RT Booklovers Convention in Las Vegas, so it was a good time and a tough time to have lots of blogging going on.  It was good in the sense that it let us share what we were doing, particularly with the RT Convention; it was tough because anytime there are multiple balls in the air, it’s a challenge to keep them all going.  Because, you know, gravity works.

Next year, we’re going to do something differently and start our planning now.  I can’t reveal all our secrets yet, because we’re still in the planning stages, but we’re going to involve not only our Nice Girls but our author friends in the fun.  I’m stoked because it will be a way to expand our network and get to know even more awesome authors and bloggers.

Thank you, all my fellow Nice Girls, for participating and thank you, Dear Reader, for visiting!

And for your reading pleasure, I’ve put links to each of our posts, below.  Happy reading!

Thank you for joining us for the A-Z Blog Challenge.  If you’re blogging in the challenge, please leave us a link so I can come visit you too.  If you have a moment, please check out these other fine blogs:

The theme on my main blog, Explore the Worlds of A. Catherine Noon, is The A To Z of the Zoo.  Join me as I explore Brookfield Zoo and finds animals, birds, and insects from A to Z.

My theme on my Knoontime Knitting craft blog is Letterforms In Nature and the Built Environment.

The theme at Noon & Wilder is The A To Z of Chicago.  Since I live here in the city and we have our Chicagoland Shifters based here, I figured I’d share a window into the city, Noon & Wilder style.

The Writer Zen Garden’s brand new website is up and running, and we’re bringing you posts from me, Noony; my partner in crime, Rachel Wilder (the Wilder half of Noon & Wilder); the talented Darla M. Sands – a blogger in her own right, at Awakening Dreams and Conquering Nightmares with a Pen; as well as Grace Kahlo, Evey Brown, and author Tina Holland.  Check it out!
