A to Z Theme Reveal!

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!

  3. I can get behind the idea of a blog buffet, for sure - although it'll make me hungry. Reading makes me hungry, anyway. Look forward to what you're serving up! (Eli@CoachDaddy, #1267.)

    1. I often get hungry while reading blog posts, too! I promise the buffet will include lots of non-food posts. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. "Blogging Buffet" — love it. Great, great idea. (I totally might borrow it for a future April challenge ;) ) It's a fabulous way for people to get to know you, too — I, for one, will be taking full advantage of that... I'm so curious about your involvement with Guide Dogs. So... you'll be seeing a lot of me this April :)

    Thanks for coming by at Life In Dogs earlier, and for your lovely comment. Really made my day :)

  7. Very cool.... I always wish I could find a way to use more posts that I've written before cuz they feel like such a waste once they're gone past. You know like you'll never see them again? I like the buffet !

  10. That's a seriously neat take on the theme. Buffets are great, one can pick and choose. Congratulations on your 1000th! Wow!
