At some basic level, I don’t much like being in charge of a lot of things. This month, I’m relinquishing the presidency of the Friends of the Albany Public Library, though I’m staying on the board, even as I join the board of the Albany Public Library Foundation.
I’m also planning to give up being the president of the NY/PA Olin Family Reunion next month. That’s been a four-year term, and I’ll be happy to pass the torch.
So too, I’ll stop being the administrator of ABC Wednesday, the meme where one participates with others, literally from around the world, in sharing a picture, a poem, an essay, SOMETHING with the various letters of the alphabet. But it’s not ending right away. We will have two more trips through the alphabet, ABC Wednesday Round 19 starting the week of July 5.
Usually, our friend Troy has done the badge for the round, but this time, Gattina from the team has created it.
ABC Wednesday was started nine years ago by Denise Nesbitt. I’ve been participating since the letter K in Round 5, and became administrator some point later, though I really don’t remember when anymore. I assign 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.
Oh, speaking of that link thing, from InLinkz: I only use it once a week. So if someone I know, who has a Blogger/Blogspot blog wanted to get other people to link to THEIR blogs, for some reason – this means you, fillyjonk, SamuraiFrog, Jaquandor, AmeriNZ, and some others – I could be talked into it.
Or it can a WordPress blog. Like this one. I am inviting you, if you have a blog, to link it below. Because I can.
As noted, ABC Wednesday will end with Round 20, with a badge by Troy. But you are invited to participate, every week, or as you can. I do think it’s advantageous to do so weekly, as it generates a lot of comments for me. Personally, I visit practically everyone who posts. I’m especially looking for folks who will visit others each week, especially since I’ve lost one of our more steadfast members.
Note that we’re VERY flexible with the letter X, with eXit or eXcel.
One last thing: if someone wants to take over ABC Wednesday, email me at rogerogreen AT gmail DOT com. I’ll tell you what it entails. Heck, I might even participate if I don’t have to be in charge. Whether or not there’s an ABC Wednesday, I may continue my alphabetic journey twice a year.
