February 6 is the big day – the A to Z challenge 2017 will be revealed.

As you might now be surmising, changes are coming in the upcoming 2017 A to Z Challenge!
           In this current post, I am laying the groundwork for the very important announcement post that will be appearing here next Monday February 6th.  There will be some vital information that we want you to be sure to read and to help us promote in order that all interested parties can be informed and provide their own input and suggestions.  And of course, there will undoubtedly be questions that we can answer for you.
Can you help us get the word out?
So that the maximum number of bloggers can get this very important news, we are asking you to help us get the buzz going by announcing the upcoming post on your own blogs as well as tweeting, Facebooking, and sharing today’s post as much as you can.  Let’s get the word out!
We want everyone who is planning on doing the 2017 Challenge to see what is in store by checking out the February 6th post.  So, those of you who have already completed your A to Z posts for this year or have them in the planning stages, never fear!  The 2017 A to Z Challenge will be here once again in April.  There will be much more information to come on the A to Z Blog after next week’s announcement so plan on visiting regularly. . . .

Alex J. Cavanaugh @ Alex J. Cavanaughthough no longer a full-time active team member due to his many other commitments including the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (which he founded)– will continue acting in an advisory and supporting role with his additional assistance in promoting the Challenge on his blog.  My many thanks to Alex for his years of service to A to Z from its inception.
I would encourage you to visit all of the blogs mentioned above to get to know the A to Z Team and give each member a big virtual hug.

So, visit the A to Z page and pass the word along – April 2017 = A to Z challenge. I folded last year, have no ideas for this year, so I’ll wait and see what the big reveal has to say. I like monthly challenges where you can skip a day or three . . .
