The A-Z Survival Challenge

Announcing the A-Z Survival Challenge. The challenge is to skip all A-Z blog posts. It's only the first day but thus far I am doing well. Can you hold out for 26 days and avoid reading a single A-Z post?

Sign in under the comments and let us know when you slipped up and read an A-Z post. Survivors of this challenge will have their names posted here in recognition on May 1st. Or thereabouts.

PS: This is not an Olaf Priol kinda thing. No offense to any of the fine bloggers who I appreciate that are doing the A-Z thing. Your challenge is to get me to read an A-Z post and thus fail my attempt at survival.

Does this post count?

Funny, but the answer is of course no you silly man.

I'm thinking of taking April off completely until the whole sorry mess blows over. I doubt I can stand an entire month of this and I'm well aware of the irony of me saying that.

ChicagoWiz said...

Wow. :( Two bloggers that I highly respect saying the same thing. :(

Ha! I will now consider it my personal challenge to have such curiosity-provoking titles to my posts that you will have NO CHOICE but to sample my alphabetical wares...consider your gauntlet picked up, sir!
; )

tough... I don't think I can go whole hog - maybe just limit it to one or two alphabet reads. It is kinda weird seeing SO MANY "A is for..." titles in my reader list...

I wouldn't worry too much.

Just how long do you think this much of the OSR crowd can keep going in the same direction?

But it is like an old school See-and-Say toy...

I do of course plan on going back come May and reading Vaults of Nagoh. I like the stuff Chris posts. I predict nearly all of you will be sick of this A-Z thing well before we hit the letter E. And I will probably read JB's because he kinda gets the whole survival thing. I am still resisting!

All mine have boring names but funny content.

ARE YOU MAN ENOUGH TO SAVE THE PRESIDENT?

JJ said...

I messed up and read Planet Algol before I realized that there was something going on. Here's to being out of the loop!

Sham aka Dave said...

I may have just failed my own challenge. The fact that I am unsure means I couldn't have possibly done so, though!

Talysman said...

Actually, you did. You commented on one of my non-challenge posts, but you read my post for the letter "K" to do so. Oh nos!

I swear I didn't do that to trap you. Your comment was useful, too!

Sham aka Dave said...

Argh! Ah well, following so many bloggers and reading posts while trying to avoid the A-Z thing is like tip-toeing through a mine field. Looks like I followed a link that was Talysman's land mine. Boom!

No worries - now I can go read a few knowing that I've failed to survive and been kicked off of the island.
