Blogging A to Z

I'm joining the Blogging from A to Z challenge this year. There's still time to sign up if you're interested!
The challenge involves creating a post for every letter of the alphabet in April. It can be about anything you want, starting Sunday April 1 with "A", all the way through Saturday April 28 with "Z" (all Sundays except the first Sunday are skipped).

You don't have to choose a theme - the posts can be about anything. But I think my theme will be TV shows since I write about TV for It's a fun topic that most people have an opinion on (even if it's that they never watch TV - usually those people are even more opinionated!).

So look for a TV-themed month of April and probably a break in book reviews.

If you're participating in the challenge, do you have a theme?


  1. Love this idea, though I don't really blog anymore. Maybe I could turn it into some sort of writing challenge. Like microfiction. Write a story a day about a topic beginning with A through Z. Might be kind of fun. Guess it all depends how I feel April 1st... Looking forward to seeing your updates!

  2. I've signed up to the challenge. I keep thinking of, then discarding, themes. I should make my mind up soon!

  3. Paul: it does take some prepwork, and I'm purposly making the posts pretty short. It's been fun though; I'm featuring a different TV show for every alphabet letter, focusing mostly on shows that are currently on and are scripted rather than reality. "K" is giving me some trouble; I didn't watch The Killing, that would fall in line best with my other choices. I think I might go retro with that one with "Kids in the Hall." So I have to make a few excpetions.

    Although "Z" is also an issue. Apparently a show called Z Rock was on IFC a few years back, so I might check that out.

  5. I'm participating in the challenge as well and currently working on two possible theme options

    1/ A to Z of Blogging & Blogging Tips
    2/ A to Z of Dating / Relationships

    Although I think I'll go with the 1st one - I'm 8 titles short for my full 26 ! aarrrghhh

    p.s. for your TV show theme would love to see 'Vampire Diaries' featured :)

    Looking forward to reading your posts during the challenge

  6. Television sounds like a fun theme. Glad to have you along for the ride in April.
