I've been completely intimidated since agreeing to participate in the A-Z challenge. For those of you who don't know what that is, Arlee Bird and Alex Cavanaugh have teamed up with several others to challenge other bloggers to blog Monday through Saturday in April, starting 4/1 using each letter of the alphabet.
More than 300 bloggers have already signed up. There is no way one blogger can visit each other blogger and post their own blogs and respond to comments and have any semblance of a life.
So, on Friday, I came up with a theme for the challenge. I will blog about what I always blog about - this journey called my life. But each letter will be either a lesson learned or about something I'm dealing with. I pre-scheduled titles and dates, so all I have to do is go back and write the blog for each one. That way I'm not stressing during the month about what to write about on a particular day.
Where I'm stumped is how to visit so many bloggers and develop connections.

Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here on Monday and Tuesday. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair.

"The way to do is to be."
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs..(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."
