Saddling Up for the A to Z Blogging Challenge


Who feels ready for a challenging ride? (Yep, thought you were.) Want to join us for the A to Z Blogging Challenge?

My writing colleague and friend Marie Anne, of Write Wrong or Indifferent, invited me to join this April blogging event. The Mane Point is ready to get back in the saddle with regular blogs.

The A to Z Challenge is hosted by these home barns (er, blogs):

Arlee Bird's Tossing It Out
Jeffrey Beesler's World of the Scribe
Alex J. Cavanaugh
Jen Daiker at Unedited
Candace Ganger's The Misadventures in Candyland
Karen J Gowen at Coming Down the Mountain
Talli Roland
Stephen Tremp's Breakthrough Blogs

It’s a regular rodeo of blogging!

Here’s how it works:

A to Z Challenge - April 2011
First, go and sign up at the A to Z Blogging Challenge, leaving a link to your own blog. (I’m #672 on the Mr. Linky list.)

Throughout April, publish 26 blog entries, with each post pertaining to a letter of the alphabet (in order). Be sure to leave a comment here, too, with a link to your blog, so we can read one another’s posts.

If you’re really ambitious, you can even pre-load blog posts to publish on certain dates in April. Every sort of blog post counts - journal entries, photos, videos, and more.

Let’s blog!

Midnight the Mini's Heartwarming Horsey Story

Midnight the Mini's Heartwarming Horsey Story

Have you seen the widely circulated video of Midnight the miniature horse?

This four-year-old equine was picked up by Ranch Hand Rescue of North Texas after apparently surviving serious neglect. Born without part of one hoof and leg, Midnight faced a fearsome fate.

However, a $14,000 prosthetic leg, thanks to Fort Worth’s Prosthetic Care, has put Midnight back on his feet, so to speak. In fact, the diminutive horse has actually begun to run.

Here’s the Associated Press video:
