A Collection

I absolutely cannot believe it’s almost April, which means it’s almost time for the 2017 Blogging from A to Z Challenge! This will be my third year participating; unfortunately, I neglected to save my challenge posts from 2015 and 2016. However, I’m excited about and inspired by the theme I chose this year!

Luckily, I chose a loose theme, which will enable me to write posts for all 26 letters of the alphabet, whereas last year, I missed a few letters, as my topic wasn’t broad at all. I’ve found that after two years of challenging myself to post throughout April for Blogging from A to Z, that a theme encompassing a wide array of personal experiences is right for me, at least this year!

For the 2017 edition of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I have decided to shape essays recounting personal memories, observations, and loves around each letter. Therefore, A Collection of Essays came to be.

I can tell I’m really excited about my theme choice because I’m typing posts ahead of time like a banshee! Writing A to Z challenge posts has never come quite so easily to me; I think the reason is that I’m picking my own brain, as opposed to doing crazy research, for my posts.

All of the posts I have thus far scheduled evoked strong emotions within me as I wrote them, which tells me my material will be interesting, at least to me! 😀 I hope my readers, new and old, will enjoy journeying with me through my brain and will laugh, cry, and maybe learn a tidbit or two while reading my posts.

To all of the A to Z Challenge participants this year: GOOD LUCK and I hope to visit as many of you, and there are a bunch, as possible! Please leave me a link to your blog or theme reveal post if you’re also challenging yourself to write from A to Z; I’d love to drop by your nook! 😀

Love, Maggie

    Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning. And yours is fabulous. Like you I’ve been writing like crazy. I want to have it all done so I can spend April visiting and reading others’ blogs.

    • Maggie | 22nd Mar 17

      You’re so very welcome! 😀 Yes, I’m hoping to get as many posts scheduled as possible! I’m excited as well to visit and meet a bunch of other bloggers!

    Sounds like an interesting and quick way to post. I picked a theme that will require research for each topic and I haven’t even gotten all my letters chosen much less started the posts themselves. Whoops!

      Thanks so much for stopping by, Tamara! Yes, last year I made the challenge so tough with the topic I picked – it required loads of research and I missed posting a few days, which drove me crazy! LOL! Good luck this year! 😀
