A to Z Blogging Challenge

There’s nothing like waiting until almost the last minute.  Last night I finally signed up for the 2015 A to Z Blogging Challenge.  You can read more about it (and sign up!) here.  Basically, it’s a challenge in which you blog every day except Sundays during the month of April, based on the alphabet:  A on the 1st, B on the 2nd, and so on.  
It’s fun, it’s a good way to “meet” other bloggers, and it’s a great way to help get in the habit of regular blogging.  I’ve actually meant to sign up for a while, but time somehow managed to get away from me.  I do have a few pre-scheduled posts, so I feel like I’m starting off a little better than I have before.  I finished in 2012, dropped out before it began in 2013 due to some health issues, and didn’t finish in 2014.  2015 needs to be a good year!  
Once again, I’m not doing a theme.  I came really, really close, but just didn’t want to fully commit to one theme.  I have mixed feelings about themes.  It seems to be recommended that you have a theme, and it seems like a lot of folks do.  I can see the point; it probably helps with organization, and some of the themes are really interesting.  I just feel like, for me, a month is a long time to write about one topic.  We’ll see how it works out.  
So what about you?  Are you participating in the A to Z Challenge this year?  Are you planning on a theme?
