Go to Take the Challenge in the menu above to sign up by midnight tonight (CST).
We have participants from around the globe playing and their music tastes are as diverse as they are, which is exactly what I was hoping for! We have heavy metal rockers, ladies singing the blues, indie and alternative, classical and jazz. We have a lot of country music fans as well as electronica dance music. There is a healthy dose of 80s music lovers (it will be a walk down memory lane!), and even some new-to-me music genres like kirtan, which I found out is a call and response sort of chanting performed in Indian devotional services.
Now I don't know exactly what each of the 36 (so far!) participants will choose, but I can tell you that on February 29th we will have one heck of a dance party!
I am delighted that you have had such a great response to my Challenges and this one in particular is so wide open to your interpretation. I am already thinking ahead to the next quarterly challenges in May and August, as well as thinking about how to shake up the 3rd Annual Challenge of Color in November. If this one is well received, I will consider making it an annual as well. And as always, if you have suggestions on how to make the experience better for you, or ideas for future Challenges, feel free to email me.
If you would like to help spread the word and show your participation, please feel free to grab my button and post it on your blog.
I searched high and low to find a way to make a blog button with a grab box. I found a lot of tutorials and copied a lot of code and tried in vain to make this work. Then I stumbled on the coolest little thing... a "Grab My Button" Code Generator! Check it out!
Remember that sign-ups end tonight at midnight (CST) so if you know someone who is interested, please send them over and encourage them to Take the Challenge of Music with you!
