It’s finally time for the Great and Powerful A-Z Theme Reveal Blogfest, in which bloggers share their themes for the upcoming A-Z Blogging Challenge and give their readers a hint of what to expect from it.
Keep reading to find out more about the A-Z Challenge and discover what my theme for this year will be!
What is the A-Z Challenge?
For those in the dark about the A-Z Blogging Challenge (seriously, where have you been?), it’s a blogfest that takes place every April. The challenge is to write a post for every day of the month except for Sundays, with each post representing a different letter of the alphabet.
It’s a great event to take part in if you want to stretch yourself to blog around a theme and get back into a habit of regular posting. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to meet other bloggers, discover new blogs and grow your own audience. Most participants find they have an increase in followers and commenters during the challenge and some make life-long blogging buddies. The challenge grows every year and so far there are over 1090 blogs taking part this April!
How do I get involved?
1) Sign up with the linky here before April 1st.
A theme isn’t compulsory for the A-Z Challenge, but I’ve found that it’s worked well for me in the past to have a topic to work around. This year I’ve chosen a theme that I’ve been considering for a couple of years now. I’ve decided to do an A-Z of Colours!
This is obviously quite a broad theme and I plan to do a variety of different types of post, including:
- Haikus and poems
- Traditional and digital artwork
- Info about colour symbolism
- Book spotlights
- Fashion and beauty (Polyvore collages, makeup looks)
- Animal/nature related
- Art and craft tutorials
- Colourful recipes
I can’t wait to see what everyone else has picked for their theme, so I’m off to visit some other blogs now.
If you’re taking part in the A-Z Challenge this year, I would love to hear what theme you’re doing. Feel free to share the link to your theme reveal post below!
I've been revealing my theme today as well, there may be a few colours in there too but I haven't decided yet… I set out with good intentions to prewrite all 26 before the start of April and then I didn't… oops!

This sounds like it will be a fun theme! I'm looking forward to seeing your posts. My theme is mental health. I'm so envious of your time off. I haven't written any of my posts yet..eek!
Very nice blog. I look forward to your A to Z posts. (smile)
What a fun theme. I look forward to following your posts.
I'm not doing A to Z this year, but I look forward to seeing what you'd post. I love colors and am always looking for creative ways to describe things without showing the same things all the time or naming the same cliche colors (e.g. sky blue, duh!)
Sounds like a fun theme! Good luck with the #AtoZChallenge!
This is my, http://www.thechinesequest.com first Challenge, and I'm excited to be participating!
I did a color theme last year and it was a blast! Sounds like you will have a lot of fun with this one 🙂
Multicolored Diary – Epics from A to Z
MopDog – The crazy thing about Hungarians…
Colors is one of those ideal theme topics where you can never run out of ideas. Best of success filling the blogger world with colorful thoughts.

Oh my God I love your blog design and the theme! 😀 Can't wait to read your entries and I am totally book marking you!
Find me at http://www.saraallie.blogspot.com
Thanks, glad you like it. I’ve bookmarked yours too. 🙂
That’s good to know. I’ve bookmarked both your blogs, thanks for sharing!
Thanks, Lonnie-you two! Hope your first challenge goes well.
Me too, Cynthia. It’s easy to keep using the same, staple colours but it’s good to mix it up with some different ones. My mind was blown when I was researching and discovered how many colour names their actually are!
Thank you, Ann!
I’m very lucky to have so much time off, it has been a godsend.
Oh well, sometimes ‘pantsing’ works well for this kind of thing. I’ve not always planned in advance, just lucky I have time off this year!
