Last year, I participated in the A to Z Challenge for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily it fit into my schedule. (I think that planning ahead was definitely key!) I wondered, though, if I would be able to participate this year. I didn't have a theme idea, I was struggling to post much of anything on my blog, and I knew April was going to be busy.
Blogging friends to the rescue! Ivy, from Uncharted, gave me an idea for a theme that would definitely work for me. I am nearing my 1000th post on my blog, and Ivy suggested republishing some of my earlier posts for the A to Z Challenge, thus celebrating my milestone and participating in the challenge at the same time.
I looked at the labels I've given my last 995+ posts, and found that there are labels that start with every letter of the alphabet--except for "X". (I obviously didn't label last year's X post with "xylophone.")
I have a friend, who instead of serving her family "leftovers," serves them "buffet!" Borrowing her terminology, my A to Z theme for 2016 will be "Blogging Buffet." It is all-you-can-read, and I do hope you'll stick around for all the offerings. With a variety of topics, there's bound to be something that appeals to you, though. And if not, you're always welcome to make yourself a PB&J!
Thanks for good friends, with good ideas!
