My foray into blogging over a year ago was largely to practice the craft of writing. It’s only recently that I’ve realised the importance of connecting with other bloggers and learning from them. When I heard about Blogchatter’s A2Z Challenge last week, I signed up without a second thought.
WHAT IS THE A2Z CHALLENGE?
In this blogging challenge, bloggers must post every day in the month of April (except Sundays). Each post corresponds to a letter of the alphabet- 26 letters and 26 posts. To make it harder or easier, depending on how you look at it, the blogger picks a theme to tie the posts together. Today, I’m revealing my chosen theme. You can check out other bloggers, and follow them as well, if their themes appeal to you.
MY THEME- A2Z CHALLENGE 2019:
It was really tough for me to pick one theme! If you follow me, you’ll know the diversity of topics I write on. Picking one niche and one thread within that niche seemed impossible. Fitting these topics in the letters of the alphabet, was even tougher. After much hemming and hawing, this is what I’ve come up:
“26 Places, 26 Memories”
I’ve travelled extensively, all my life. Exploring new places, cuisines and cultures gives me immense pleasure. In 31 years, I’ve covered many countries and numerous cities and towns. To narrow the playing field, I’ve picked 26 trips that have a strong memory/ies attached to them. These posts won’t include all my memorable trips (you can thank the alphabet restriction for that!); and they won’t necessarily represent my best memories- only those that have interesting narrative value. However, they’re a good representation of my travel experiences. There will be some memories from as early as 3 years of age, and they will come up to my latest trip in March 2019.
WHY I’VE SIGNED UP FOR THE A2Z CHALLENGE:
I love a good challenge. I thrive on fulfilling short-term goals, even with the added stress. Remember that awfully twee “100 Happy Days” challenge that went around social media a few years ago? I did that even on days there was nothing to be ‘happy’ about! Blog trains, contests, time-sensitive projects? Sign me up!
This one, however, might prove to be my hardest challenge yet. I’m not used to churning out quality content on the daily. I’m also wary of putting too much of myself in these posts. Wish me luck, folks! I really hope you follow my A2Z challenge journey, and I hope I can complete it successfully.
