The Second Annual A-Z Challenge!

In the March 27, 2010 post, Lee over at Tossing it Out,  issued a "double dog dare you" challenge:

"In April I've decided to do a Blogging from A to Z theme and I'm inviting any of you who think you have what it takes to join me. In other words, I challenge you to join me--I double dog dare you! The challenge would entail that each day participating bloggers post at least 100 words based on the letter of that day, starting with "A" on April 1 and ending with "Z" on April 30. Does that sound too difficult for you?"

That challenge or double dog dare was the catalyst that catapulted myself and several others to accept and participate in that A-Z Challenge. Needless to say it was a mountain of fun and a huge success! It turned out to be a little easier than I first thought and I met a whole bunch of bloggers whom many became both my friend and follower of my blog.

In early February, Lee from Tossing It Out invited all those who participated to step back up to the plate as he challenged us to be a part of The Second Annual A-Z Challenge in April of 2011. But wait, there is more! He also has challenged us to help him and several other "team leaders" to recruit 500 or more participants in this years A-Z challenge. We have reached that number and more! Can you believe it? Some 700 or more bloggers will take the challenge and blog 26 letters of the alphabet in 26 days in April. Now he is pushing for 800 + Are you up to it? How about joining in? It is easier than you think.

So, beginning Friday, April 1st, I am going to begin this second annual double dog dare challenge with a post that begins or is related to the letter “A.” I hope to remain informative, inspiring, and encouraging to my readers and followers during this month. 

Please share the Gospel Driven Disciples with those whom you know and maybe they can join in this great experiment. You can also find a fan page on Face book now for the Gospel-driven Disciples, stop by there and click on becoming a fan. I hope that you will drop byTossing it Out and see how he is doing with his blogging from A to Z theme!

Let the games begin, again!

Yes it 's going to be fun, someone have already posted their letter "A" I think she lives in NewZealand so perhaps the time zone may effect why she has already posted.
God Luck to you Gregg with your entries.

I'm just going to throw in the towel and declare we're going to shoot for 1000--why not?

Thanks for this great post and hope this year is even better for you than last.

Thanks for the challenge. My blog has been dormant for a few months and I miss it. I'm all in.

My first one was posted today (4-1-11). It is "A is for Fool."
