Welcome to ABC Wednesday, Round 14

Bloggers, consider giving ABC Wednesday a try

Don’t know why I hadn’t thought of this before six months ago, but consider this my now semiannual plug for something called ABC Wednesday, in which people, literally from around the world, post an item – pictures, poems, essays that in someway describe each letter of the alphabet, in turn. I’ve been participating since the letter K in Round 5.

The meme was started about six and a half years ago by Denise Nesbitt from England. At some point, she recruited a team of her followers to do some of the intro writing and visiting, which eventually included me.

Then three rounds ago, she was getting a little burned out. So I became the administrator, assigning who reads which posts, making sure somebody is writing the introductions (and writing them myself, when necessary) and inserting the link that allows everyone to participate. The team is pretty good at noting when someone grossly violates the simple rules.

Read about the significance of this round’ logo by Troy here. He’s designed the logos for eight or nine rounds now.

The Netiquette for the site is this:

1. Post something on your non-commercial blog/webpage having something to do with the letter of the week. Use your imagination. Put a link to ABC Wednesday in your post and/or put up the logo.

2. Come to the ABC Wednesday site and link the SPECIFIC link to the Linky thing. It’ll be available around 4 p.m., Greenwich Mean Time each Tuesday, which is 11 a.m. or noon in the Eastern part of the United States.

3. Try and visit at least 5 other participants…and comment on their posts. The more sites you do visit, the more comments you will probably get.

Bloggers, consider giving it a try, if this sounds interesting. We’ll be starting with A again in a couple weeks. And I actually will have a theme for the posts this time through, which will become quite evident soon.

  1. So if I understand this correctly it’s something like an electronic chain letter. Sorry think I’ll pass.

    But in keeping with the season hope you had a wonderful christmas.

  2. Well, no. Everyone posts something starting with the letter A one week, then the letter B the next week, et al.
