This is my third year to participate in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Whether they have taken this challenge or not, most bloggers know what it is all about. Every day, with the exception of some Sundays, during the month of April, the challenge is to publish a blog post for the letter of the day. So, April 1st, I will again be taking up that challenge, too.
Today, we officially begin our frenzied mission with our “Theme Reveal”. Many bloggers choose the have no set theme, preferring to just go with the flow. However, most seem to choose a theme to keep them channeled. That is part of the beauty of blogging, doing it your own way.
Two years ago, I chose poetry as my theme. April is National Poetry Month. I shared some of my favourite poems. Some poems were well known, while others were not. I chose poetry by well-known poets, as well as by poets who were not very well known. Some of the poems were written by myself.
Last year, I shared a Soundtrack of Lifeblood Songs. These were songs that had lyrics that are meaningful to me. Some of these songs went back to my childhood, while others were newer, yet still powerful to me. As a writer, words are important to me.
May 2017, Bill answered my list of songs with his own soundtrack. He chose songs that had special musical compositions. As a guitarist, he speaks through music. After he critiqued my list, I challenged him to create his own. He did. That may have been a first for the A-Z Challenge: Non-blogger blogs A-Z Challenge Rebuttal. He had fun!
I have contemplated my theme for the past year. I knew what it would be, having decided last April. But, each post has been an ongoing evolving plan. And, it may very well continue to evolve.
My 2018 A to Z Blogging Challenge Theme Reveal is… “My Writeful Heart”. This April, I will share things that I have written. I will share musings, poetry, and stories. Some pieces will be older, some will be new. Some of these have been shared before, some have never been seen. I hope whether you have read them or not, you will still enjoy what I share. I always share my heart and soul. After all, the message and motto of my blog is: Live. Laugh. Love. Share.
