Spanking From A to Z Blog Challenge FAQ
What is the Spanking From A to Z Blog Challenge?
The Spanking from A to Z Blog Challenge is a group event for any spanking blogger who would like to participate. The challenge is to blog for 26 days in June, 2014 using a different letter of the alphabet as a theme for your blog posts.
Can you explain that a bit more?
Sure. Each letter of the alphabet corresponds to a day of the month. On June 1, your blog should have A as the theme. B on June 2 etc.
Does each post have to be about spanking?
No! This is an opportunity to share all sorts of things. Got a great recipe for Apple Pie? You could post it on June 1 with A or on the 16th for P or the 4th (D is for dessert) or 25th (Y for Yummy). Use your imagination!
Do I have to post every day?
It's not required to participate, but it is encouraged. We are more interested in participation than in making a bunch of rules.
There are 30 days in June and only 26 letters in the alphabet.
Excellent point. One option would be to post June 1-26. Another option would be to take the 4 Saturdays in June off from the alphabet challenge, thus leaving 26 days for blogging. If you do that, then instead of blogging the letter that corresponds to the day of the month, just continue on from where you left off.
Can I still participate in Saturday Spankings or other weekly events?
Sure. You can either skip Saturdays (see the question right above this) or incorporate the letter for the day into your post. For example, the letter for Saturday June 7 would be G. Just think of the possibilities---giggle, gasp, grab, grip, goose, girl. Get the idea? If you want to participate in another weekly event or you have a weekly event on your blog, please don't let that keep you from participating in the alphabet challenge when you can or, incorporate it into the post.
For example---On June 13 Spanking Stories Book Club will be discussing Terran by Cara Bristol. M is the 13th letter of the alphabet…and coincidentally the hero of the book is named Marlix. Ta-da! Easy peasy.
This is meant to be a fun community event, not a homework assignment that gives you headaches. J
Is this a blog hop? Do I have to offer a prize?
No, this is not a blog hop. It's more of a community event and a way to challenge ourselves as bloggers to post more often and maybe a bit more creatively. (Not that there aren't plenty of creative bloggers out there.)
Do I have to visit all the other blogs?
No. That would be quite a burden (we are hoping for big participation, after all). But, we do suggest that you take this opportunity to visit some blogs that you don't usually visit. Maybe you could visit one new blog each day, though that is not a requirement.
Do I have to be a writer to participate?
No! This event is open to all spanking bloggers. There're no criteria other than that you have a blog (or maybe this will inspire you to start one) and that you consider yourself to be a part of the spanking blogger community.

Other than using letters of the alphabet for the theme, are there any other requirements for my posts?
Yes, if possible please include either the linky list or a link to the list of participating blogs on Spanking Romance Reviews to encourage visitors to your blog to stop by other blogs. We'd also like you to include the logo in your posts and if possible post the logo on your blog with a link to the sign up at Spanking Romance Reviews.
Is there a deadline for signing up?
June 30th would probably be too late to participate.
I'm sort of new to blogging and I have some technical questions. Can someone help me?
