This entry is part 1 of 26 in the series Blogging from A to Z

Prior to now, all of the Internet memes we participate in have been exclusive to sex bloggers. Scavenger Hunt, Sinful Sunday, Kink of the Week, and Wicked Wednesday are the prime examples, but that list would also include the past Feb Photo Fest, Boobies & Bondage Across America, Boobday, and TMI Tuesday, among others.

For the month of April, we’ll be joining in on a little bit different meme, Blogging from A to Z Challenge.  The concept is pretty simple, there are 26 letters of the alphabet, and 26 days in April without counting Sundays (which are Sinful anyway!)  Here’s the background of the concept, for those who are interested:

Blogging from A to Z Challenge    It all began with my post from Saturday March 27, 2010 when I set forth a challenge to all bloggers for the month of April.   Can you post every day except Sundays during this month?  And to up the bar, can you blog thematically from A to Z?

Most of the time if you subtract Sundays from April, you then have 26 days–one day for each letter of the alphabet.  When April 1st lands on a Sunday you begin on that day which will be the only Sunday you would post during that month’s challenge.

Using this premise, you would start beginning April First with a topic themed on something with the letterA, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until you finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z.  It doesn’t even have to be a word–it can be a proper noun, the letter used as a symbol, or the letter itself.  The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day.

Most of you are probably familiar with Sue Grafton and her best selling series of detective novels known as the “Alphabet Series” that started in 1982 with “A” Is For Alibi up to her most recent “V” Is For Vengeance“.   She has made a franchise with the series and there have been  other authors who have taken similar approaches.  This Blogging From A to Z Challenge will be in the same vein.

A2Z-BADGE-0002014-small_zps8300775cI can’t take credit for finding this meme, proper acknowledgement of my sources will require a nod to alluring Catherine “Sassy Cat” Martinique and her You Won’t Tame This Sassy Cat blog.  I was there commenting on this week’s Wicked Wednesday post, when I saw a banner in her sidebar about the A to Z Challenge.  I knew almost immediately that Serafina and I would need to participate.

If you are a fellow sex blogger and you’d like to join in on the fun, make sure to register with the symbol “(AC) ” at the end of your blog’s title, it’s one of the contest’s few stringent rules.  We are participant number 1652.  While I was writing this post another participant added their name to the list.

So, there are lots of folks taking part, and there’s still at least a little time left to to register.   There are some nice banners to go along with the challenge, as well as a calendar to make coordinating posts that begin with the proper letter very easy.
