[For the bloggers that want to skip the A-to-Z Challenge explanation and get right to the good stuff, my Big Reveal is just below the “Read More” button]
The first day of April is a day for fools, which is very appropriate considering it also is the day I start the “A to Z Challenge”. The challenge is just that, a challenge, and one that may make a fool out of me.
What is the “A to Z Challenge“?
It’s a blog challenge within a community of approximately 2,000 bloggers, where we will publish a blog everyday in April (except Sundays) with each day’s blog being associated with a letter in the alphabet. April 1st is the letter “A”, and the second is letter “B”, and so on.
Most of us will have a constant theme for the month. Some may have the theme of politics, or food, or God, or, or, or, or.
As explained on a-to-zchallenge:
To provide an example: My “A” topic in the first year’s challenge was a debate using April Fool’s Day. In 2011 my “B” topic was Blog Boggled–a regular feature on my blog. For the letter “C” one could use candy or cake and post a recipe. D could inspire a post about the letter grade “D” as you might receive on a test in school. Maybe F could be represented by FE, the symbol for iron.
Today is the day that we reveal to our readers, and the other bloggers that have accepted the challenge, what our month long THEME will be.
Admittedly, I struggled with a theme idea. I mean, it’s hard enough finding ideas for one post, let alone 26 posts on the same subject… daunting to say the least.
Then it came to me like a big glorious beacon of light, ready to cast away the shadows of doubt!
Now, I am excited!
I actually cannot wait to write these posts, because at the end it can be made into a book for someone that fills my life with joy. This person makes my heart swell to uncomfortably new levels with abundant love, smiles, and giggles.
You will understand in a moment.
My Theme for the A-to-Z Challenge is…. (Drum roll):
Letters to My Daughter
Some post’s will be passed down wisdom. Some posts will be funny, or endearing stories that I want her to know about. Some will be about her mom (aka my hot wife). Some will be about me. Some will be about her.
All of them will be for her.
When April has passed, a few quick clicks will take place with the posts becoming one and she will have a book of love from her dad.
For that reason, I could not be more excited to complete this challenge.
I’m anxiously awaiting the labor of love that will be the A-to-Z Challenge, and I hope that you will join me on the journey starting April 1st.
Thank you for reading!
