Some of My Favorite Blogs
1. Stories Mary Grace Ketner shared observations and anecdotes about the traditional tales found in the 398.2 section of your library – Folktales, Fairy Tales, Legends, Myths and Fables – as well as their protagonists and villains, collectors, illustrators, and scholars. Mary Grace is a professional storyteller, author, friend. Each post was 100 perfectly placed words that flowed. You'll want to find the 398.2 section of your library and discover these treasures listed in each post!
2. Pam Faro and her StorytellerStory Crossings blog was amazing. Her blog is all about making connections through storytelling. She is an amazing storyteller, storyteller presenter, and educator. I'm so happy to have another storytelling friend.
3. Life, the Universe and Everything - Each day's life experiences with Megan was such a delight to read. She is a storyteller and a fantastic writer.
4. The Multicolored Diary - Each day of folktales, legends, and myths held me spellbound. Zalka Csenge Virág's writing is beautiful and so are her tales. Here are her words: "I love colors. I love colorful things (in case the blog's title did not cue you in). This year, I am going to be posting about folktales, myths andlegends that have something to do with a certain color of the day. The A to Z will be given by the colors, which is fun in itself: there are more colors (and especially names of colors) in the world than you could possibly imagine."
5. Stephanie's Studio - Stephanie's blog is inspiring and her writing is flowing! I've loved each of her posts and will continue to read and learn from her!
6. Finding Eliza - Awww, the letters, postcards, and anecdotes written down by Kristen Cleage's grandfather to his wife Pearl - priceless! Extensive photographs and research are throughout with fantastic recounts of her grandparent's days together (1907-1912).

Tips on How to Make the A-Z April Blog Challenge even better
Tip for next year:
1, Blog Categories. The directions state: "There are categories for those looking for like-minded blogs. Select ONE category code and enter it after your blog’s title/name. The code applies to your blog, not your theme for the Challenge and is purely optional. However, if your blog has adult content or strong language with liberal use of swearwords etc. you MUST mark it (AC) or it will be removed from the list."
My suggestion would be for those that wish to use a category code- have a pull down window to select that code. If bloggers would like to visit those like categories then there would be a way to click on that particular code and see those blogs. I bet we would visit more blogs if we had them in order by categories.
2. Possibly place blogs in alphabetical order under their categories
