Editing the A to Z Challenge

5 Apr

During this Blogging from A to Z April Challenge, I began to think about what other challenges we could do from A to Z in upcoming months and blog to share our experiences. Some of my favorite challenge edits are:

  • Eating my way from A to Z– Some people could do this with full course meals, cereals, fruits, exotic foods or cutting their food into shapes. I can imagine their families would be thrilled for “Frog Leg Friday.” Although, I’ve had frog legs on several occasions and they really do resemble the taste of chicken.
  • Falling in love from A to Z– Did you ever see the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days? This would be along the same lines but the goal would be just to have a date with a day whose name starts with a letter consecutively from A to Z. It might backfire when you meet your future first ex-husband at the bar and decline a date just because his name is Mike and you already are all the way to P- searching for Peters, Pauls and Pasquals.
  • Hobbies from A to Z- This would be good for anyone who wanted to have a chance to try being an acrobat or zoologist. They would be able to join this challenge and spend a day going through each of their potential passions by letter. Beekeeping anyone? Ghost hunting?
  • Send a gift to Kate @ Another Clean Slate from A-Z– This is my personal favorite. Everyone could use their creativity to send me gifts- anything from Alcohol to Jewelry to Zumba soundtracks.

What are some edited challenges you can think of? Maybe one of ours could go viral like the Blogging from A to Z Challenge! Imagine the possibilities!

Today was Day Five (or Day E) of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.

One of my college roommates has been in town, so my creative juices are moving more slowly than usual. I will have a recap of this upcoming amazing weekend once my brain cells are again fully functioning. Hoping you’ll follow me on Bloglovin or Twitter! New friends make me happy!

    Those are such good ideas, lol!

    Hahaha this cracked me up! Those are all great ideas that would require a ton of effort. Maybe I should try the falling in love from A-Z challenge! But where would I find a guy whose name starts with X??

    Other edit ideas… Hmmm… How about pictures with celebrities from a-z? You have to actually be in the pic with them, no photoshop please. Or you can just do a series of photos contorting your body into the letters a-z. And nothing mainstream easy like the YMCA dance moves too.

    This is funny….I like the gifts to Kate!

    Those are really good ideas!

    I love this idea!

    Haha. These ideas are great! What about wining from A-Z. Each day you try a different brand of wine?

    LOL Gifts. I like that idea. Though the the food idea is fun too. I am only doing story and other book-related stuff though.

    Following from the A to Z Challenge. My personal favorite is the same as yours, although I might suggest one small change….;) Can you guess what that would be?

  9. Me April 5, 2013 at 1:28 pm #

    Great ideas. Esp the gifttt.:) nice post.

    Haha! So clever- I think you should definitely pursue one of these for the next challenge. The dating one sounds like particularly good idea. Lots of free dinners, but it may be a little exhausting, and it’s probably hard to find a guy for X,Y and Z.

    I’m so down for the Eating my way from A to Z. As long as the next month is a weight loss challenge 😉 I enjoyed this.

    • Another Clean Slate April 5, 2013 at 5:06 pm #

      Hmm… I didn’t think of that- we’d definitely need a follow-up weight loss challenge!

    How about learning a new word A to Z? Each day you learn a new word and use it (appropriately) in a conversation. We’d all be super smart by the end!

    You win for E. That’s all. 🙂

    snogging from A-Z …kiss people from countries, although it might be tough later on in the alphabet. I’d like eating challenge.

  15. JulieYouJest April 5, 2013 at 5:30 pm #

    Sign me up for the ones with wine and food!

  16. Kelly @ Dysfunctionally Functional April 5, 2013 at 5:31 pm #

    I love the gifts from A-to-Z! Wonderful idea!

    • auntyamo April 5, 2013 at 8:28 pm #

      sorry, hit the button too soon ;D

      firstly it’s lolz YOU’RE funny
      then I was going to suggest…
      AtoZ driving laws – break one in a state of each letter… you guys got a Z state?

      • Another Clean Slate April 6, 2013 at 8:51 am #

        Ohh… that’s a good one. We could improvise with a city!

      • auntyamo April 6, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

        Yes! I’m liking this more and more 🙂

  18. Leslie Lormer Symmonds April 5, 2013 at 11:18 pm #

    Love the eating idea! Sounds like fun! 🙂 Stopping by from the SITS Sharefest!

  20. mrkelly2u April 8, 2013 at 8:32 am #

    Haha – if nothing else, you’ve put me in the mood for some ghost hunting! Mine would probably be an A-Z of personality improvements starting with Asking more questions and ending with Zipping up my trousers properly before leaving the house.

    Good post – hope you’re enjoying the challenge as much as I am.

    New follower here and I love the creativity of this post! Alcohols A to Z anyone??? No judgment, I swear I’m not an alcoholic… just a connoisseur of fine liquids 😉

    • Another Clean Slate April 8, 2013 at 4:43 pm #

      Thanks for following 🙂 I definitely think that would be fun if we survived the first week- I can’t keep up anymore!

I love hearing what you have to say! Give it to me...
