For the first time, I’ll be joining the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. The challenge takes place throughout the month of April, and each day (except Sunday), you write a blog focused on each letter of the alphabet in sequential order.
So, on April 1st, the blog topic will have something to do with the letter A, for instance, write about apples. April 2nd, the topic must be focused on the letter B, for instance, write about bananas. You get the idea.
The organizers of the challenge suggest you have a theme for all your blogs, for instance, fruit! They also suggest making your blogs short—100 to 300 words–so you aren’t burned out by mid-April.
Hundreds of bloggers have signed up for the challenge, and there’s still time if you’re interested.
I think it will be hard work, but also a lot of fun. Another advantage is you meet other bloggers, which is nice to have more blogger friends, interesting blogs to read, and more exposure for your own blog.
My theme for the blog challenge is Creativity. As a writer, I believe that’s an important characteristic to have and to nurture. But you don’t have to be a writer, or an artist, or an actor to express your creativity. Think about it. Creativity means, to me, expanding your mind, digging deeper into whatever talent you might have. Even mathematicians and scientists express their creativity as they search for new solutions to problems.
So I’ll be exploring different aspects of creativity during the blog challenge. I hope you’ll join me in this April adventure!
Hi Just popped in from the A to Z Challenge, good luck.
Thanks, Rosie! Same to you–following you now 🙂
Good luck! It sounds like a great (and important) theme! Looking forward to reading more in April. It’s my first year trying it too, and I’m taking full advantage of prescheduling posts…. so far, up to J! Going to try to have them all finished before April begins. Good luck!

Wow, Alex, you’re on top of things! I’m trying to get some written ahead; we’ll see how far I get! Good luck!
Good luck to you, too, and thank you!
Creativity, I like it. Very important indeed. No matter our profession, we all like a good story and that’s where creativity comes in.
Looking forward to reading your posts, Linda.
Thanks, Slivia! I’m looking forward to writing, and to seeing other posts, including yours!
We can all use more creativity. Looking forward to your posts.

Thanks, Leanne! Looking forward to your Pride and Prejudice posts 🙂
I think you’ll find a lot to pull from the creativity theme. Very interesting! Enjoy the challenge.
My A to Z Theme Reveal
Thanks, Stephanie. Following you now, so enjoy it, too!
Creativity! I think its perfect. It’s like an homage to the actual challenge which is a creative outlet all on its own. I’m excited to see what you have to share with us 😀
Thanks, SK. Looking forward to your “silly” words, too!
Hallo, Hallo fellow A2Z’er!
I had a bit of a “late, late” like the Rabbit of Alice in Wonderland start to the A to Z Reveal today! Thankfully, everyone has been posting their Reveal posts to Twitter, and thereby, I am able to visit & hop! 🙂
I personally LOVE your theme about Creativity! As your quite right: science & art blend into each other, especially if you not only consider how theories of quantum physics are purported into existence, but what about the mathematics involved with fractuals!? I find inspiration for Creativity everywhere I go, including whilst walking in nature with a camera in hand! The stroke of creativity outside our own doors and homes is beyond incredible! Just look at the hues of colours represented in the trees!? I cannot wait to drop by regularly and see where your muse leads you!
How a wicked sweet time blogging!
I’m quite excited myself! 🙂
I’m a first timer btw!
