ABC Wednesday Round 20: the last roundup?

ABC Wednesday will likely end with Round 20; certainly it won’t be run by me, or Denise, or assistant administrator Leslie.

One of the best things that happened for me, is figuring out what to post each week. I knew, at least, that one of the topics would be starting with whatever letter we were up to in ABC Wednesday.

About four (or five?) years ago, I became the administrator of 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. #20 may be the last round, starting the week of January 9. 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. Note that we’re VERY flexible with the letter X, with Xmas or eXcellent.

As usual, our friend Troy has done the badge for the round.

ABC Wednesday was started nine and a half 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, 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 likely end with Round 20; certainly, it won’t be run by me, or Denise, or assistant administrator Leslie, because we all are burnt out. Personally, I visit practically everyone who posts. But 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. And whether or not there’s an ABC Wednesday, I may continue my alphabetic journey twice a year.

  1. It will be sad to see an end to ABC Wednesday. I honestly can’t remember how or why I joined back in 2010 and can only assume that a blog I visited was part of the meme. I have enjoyed it though even if finding interesting people to fill the entire alphabet gets harder with every round. But hopefully I can continue through the first half of 2017.

    Thanks for all you have done to make ABC Wednesday such a success.

  2. Hmmm… might need to do it one more time, for old time’s sake. January 9th. I’ll try to remember. Love ya, Roger!

  3. If you just put the link on your post so that we have a meeting point that would be OK for me. Or I can put it on my blog too. But besides the logo I wouldn’t do anything, no introduction, and no rules for who has to comment from one number to the other. Just as free as all other themes too. Putting the linky thing on your blog each Wednesday is not a big thing to do !

  4. I will try to remember to come back next week- I would hate to miss the end of ABC Wed! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and not too chilly where you are.

  5. Funny you should post this cuz I did just what you suggested and had my post all ready for tomorrow. Hope it helps.
