1. Just because April looks pretty clean on your calendar and you sign up for the A to Z April Blog Challenge 2011 doesn't mean all hell won't break loose sometime during the month. My month of chaos began April 1st and threatens to continue all month.
2. Because of No. 1, Alex J. Cavanaugh's approach -- writing his blog posts ahead of time and pre-scheduling them to publish -- would have saved me a lot of grief. Alex, I sure wish with all my heart that I had followed your great example. I'm still hanging on with a wing and a prayer, but I think I'm going to make it to Z.
3. There are so many amazing bloggers participating in the A to Z that it's going to take months for me to visit them all and read their challenge posts. To those who have left comments and followed my blog so far, I will reciprocate.
4. The originator of this challenge, Arlee Bird, and his 2011 team deserve a huge round of applause for their creativity and hard work. Stand up and take a bow, folks!
