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.
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!
