You may have noted my blog post regarding preparation for the Blogging to A to Z Challenge in which I shared the notebook I had created specially for the occasion. As the challenge has already started I will assume that you have already covered themes, A to Z Brainstorming, and drafted and scheduled your posts.
So today I am discussing how to make the most of visiting the blogs during the challenge and keep track of your progress through the blogs.
Over 1000 blogs have now signed up for the challenge. That is a lot of reading. I find that if I visit a blog in the early days and enjoyed it I want to make a note to go back and read it which is where this insert comes in.
The latest addition to my Free Filofax Inserts is my daily checklist for the A to Z Challenge. See the image below for an example:
This is based on the daily checklist set out in my full download (available here) in which I set out one for each day (and a catch-up Sunday). However, for ease this quick little insert is available as an alternative.
On my checklist I note how many blogs I visited and note the ones that I like. The challenge brings together a wide collection of blogs. Some of them I will enjoy for the duration of the challenge but wouldn’t necessarily read outside of April, others I would like to visit on a more regular basis, and others are not really my cup of tea. I like to make a distinction between these different categories and note which blog falls into which category – especially if I want to visit it a few times during the challenge before deciding whether to subscribe or follow on twitter etc.
How do you remember which blogs to revisit after or during the challenge? and how do you keep track of them all? Share your process in the comments.
