A to Z and Captcha

So Monday was fun right?! I got to meet a lot of new, cool, people and be re-introduced to many more. Those blog hops and fests were awesome, if I do say so myself - and I do.

And I'd like to answer a question from the Re-Intro fest... Yes, I talk fast! Lol.

Last night when the kids and I got home from grocery shopping - UGH! - I sat down on the couch that insisted on giving me static-y hair and about eat me alive. After I found a comfy position I opened my laptop and my blogger dashboard materialized on the screen. Low and behold! - the A to Z Challenge was already accepting participants but this year they are adding a slight twist - Categories! Just add ONE behind your sign up name/blog. You don't have to but it's encouraged.

1. WRITING:                          (WR)
2. BOOKS:                              (BO)
3. FILM:                                  (FM)
4. PHOTOGRAPHY:               (PH)
5. GARDENING:                     (GR)
6. CRAFT:                               (CR)
7. ART:                                    (AR)
8. MUSIC:                               (MU)
9. CULINARY:                         (CU)
10. LIFESTYLE:                      (LI ) 
11. FASHION:                          (FA)
12. PERSONAL:                      (PR)
13. SOCIAL MEDIA:                (SO)
14. GAMING:                           (GA)
15. EDUCATION:                    (ED)
16. POLITICS:                          (PO)
17. HISTORY:                           (HI)
18. SCIENCE:                          (SC)
19. HUMOR:                             (HU)
20. TRAVEL:                             (TR)
21. MISCELLANEOUS:            (MI)
22. ADULT CONTENT:             (AC)

I signed up at #48 using the category (MI). Hurry up and go sign up! I'll wait...

Ok, now for those of you that are going to sign up, or those of you that already have, I have a favor to ask...

Shhh, come here. A little closer. A little closer. That's it. Just a little - OUCH! Not that close - sheesh!

Can you make sure you have your CAPTCHA turned off? That thing sucks meatballs during regular blogging hours, it sucks even worse during A to Z Challenge, especially when we are trying to visit hundreds of blogs a day. Even if you shut it off for only the month of April would be appreciated. Click here or here to find out how to make this happen.


I'm excited to meet new bloggers, get to know the ones I've recently made, and visit my established blogging friends. You guys make me excited to visit every day!

  1. Bless you for reminding people about CAPTCHA! I hate it so much, and it really slows things down!

  2. YES YES YES about the CAPCHA. Those things drove me nuts during Monday's blogfest. Heck, they drive me nuts any time.

    That's very smart about the catagory thing for the AtoZ. Then you can visit the categories you are most interested in.

  3. Bless you for this post. :)

    Stopping by to welcome you on board the A to Z Challenge April 2013.
    Look forward to your challenge posts!

  4. CAPCHA is so evil! I think it tries not to be legible just to be irritating. ;)

  5. Yay for the A-Z! I'm excited and so excited to see what everyone is going to do. I can't believe how amazingly long the list is getting. This is going to be great.

    CAPCHA drives me crazy...I can never get it right, and sometimes I just give up and not leave a comment. Note to everyone- it might be set as a default and you may not even go and check your settings to make sure it is off.

  6. CAPTCHA makes me insane. It doesn't stop me from commenting, but I do get annoyed because it slows me down. Thanks for sending out the reminder!

  7. Please...please....please...please....please...please....please...please....please...please....please...please....please...please....please...please....please!!!

    With sugar on top! :)

  8. I can't stand captchas. I try to be quick commenting since I follow many blogs, and those things slow me down.


I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
