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?  


  1. Hello again. Thanks for dropping in to my blog earlier. I'm another last minute signer-upper; let's hope I can stay the course. I agree with you that writing for an entire month on one topic is probably a challenge too far! As I said, mine will likely be a pot-pourri of bits 'n bobs. We'll see how we go.

  2. Glad you jumped on the band wagon! Looking forward to reading your posts! For me it was easier to have a theme than to try to figure out what to write. Getting excited!


  3. Bravo on such a wise decision, you're going to have such fun with it. Just let your imagination run free :)
