Today is the day! It's time for the A to Z Challenge Great and Powerful Theme Reveal. It's the day to share themes for the A-to-Z Challenge for 2015! I'm really excited to get this challenge underway! (As is evidenced by my gratuitous use of exclamation points.)
There are over 1,100 bloggers signed up to participate this year. Incredible.
This will be my second year participating and I look forward to taking things I learned from last year's experience to make this year's journey even better.
The A to Z Challenge is a blogging event held each April. Bloggers create posts from A to Z beginning on April 1st and ending on April 30th. There is a post scheduled for each day of the month, except for Sundays, with each day corresponding to a sequential letter of the alphabet. It's definitely a challenge and it's a lot of fun.
There are bloggers from all over the world blogging about hundreds of different things. There are craft bloggers, book bloggers, social bloggers, history bloggers. You name it, there's a blog for it. It's quite the social event. Last year, I found at least twenty new blogs to follow regularly thanks to my experiences reading their posts for A to Z.
As for my posts, last year I more or less set the trend for myself. The theme was projects...nothing terribly creative given the name of my blog, but it forced me to organize myself and get something out there every day.
I created quite a few projects and had a great time doing it. (You can see all of last year's project posts here.)
This year, I'm continuing the trend. The theme will remain centered on craft projects. I made a pile of new items this past year, many with the plan to use specifically for the A to Z. The list is all drawn up, with the exception of X, Y, and Z. Those letters will get assigned to projects this week. I also still have a small handful of projects that need creating in the next couple of weeks.
I have quite the assortment of crafts ready to share. There are a lot of sewing projects, but there's also some painting, and a couple of new craft skills that I've learned since the last A to Z. Best of all, the skill levels stay pretty manageable for most, so you should be able to duplicate what I've done fairly easily if you so desire.
I'm looking forward to sharing my posts with you! I'm also looking forward to meeting up with a new pile of bloggers. With over 1,100 to choose from, I definitely won't be bored!
The challenge begins on April 1st. Are you joining in? Sign-ups are still open over at A to Z!
