An A-Z Journey through the Challenge: Q

As we may have mentioned once or twice ;), we’re both great fans of April’s A-Z Blogging Challenge. Set up by Arlee Bird back in 2009, it’s grown like topsy since that time. As neither David nor I are able to participate again this year, we decided instead to highlight one (or more) blogs each day, to encourage you to visit, to make new friends, and to find some entertainment during the current crazy world we’re in.

Some of these highlights will be old friends we’ve made during previous challenges, but some will be new. We don’t plan to stick to any theme other than maintaining a (possibly tenuous) connection to the letter of the day.


So, we kick of the start of a third week with today’s letter – Q


A reminder that you can find participants via the Master List, but in order not to miss any of April’s blogging riches, you may also seek participants via the hashtags #AtoZChallenge and #A2ZChallenge on Twitter.

For today, I’d like to add:

The Quiet Writer is the blog of author Rachel Walkley where she wisely states “this blog is for me, as all blogs should be”. Rachel is another A-Z veteran, with 2020 being her sixth year of participating in the Challenge. Her interest in history led to previous themes of stately homes of the wealthy, the enduring gardens of Britain, and the Medieval structures of cathedrals and castles. This year she’s providing wonderfully detailed tales of buildings associated with entertainment – which will undoubtedly form a tremendously useful archive of research material for fellow authors.

If you’re catching up, here’s our previous highlights …

    1. It’s a tricky question for sure. My feeling is that unless you gain pleasure yourself from the blogging process, you’re onto a losing wicket. That said, there’s no greater feeling than feeling “your people”.
