I was invited (well, not personally, but still…) to join the Fandango’s Friday Flashback!
Fandango scrolls back, every Friday, and gives a second chance to a post he had published on the same date, years before. I thought it was a great way to remember some of the stuff I did a while back, and I decided to participate…
So here it is!
Previously published on March 26th of 2019, here is a little list of theme ideas for any blogger thinking about participating to the A to Z Challenge, in April. I hope you’ll enjoy this (again). And where ever you are, stay safe and well!
You want to enter the famous A to Z Challenge, but you have no clue what theme you should choose?
You are not alone…
I’ve noticed that many bloggers are still looking for the perfect theme. And since time is running out, I have the feeling that some of you are considering just skipping this 10th anniversary of the challenge.
So, I decided to (try to) help you out.
Here are a couple of ideas that came to mind, and that you might find useful. At least, I hope so.
You can play with band (or singer) names, or with song titles here. Why not introduce us to 26 of your favorite songs. You can write a short fiction, a poem or your thoughts about the song of the day… We all enjoy a good musical reference.
Share famous thoughts:
Wether you use the subject or the name of the person who said it, quotes are always inspiring. And if you add your personal thoughts, your A to Z Challenge is sure to gather its share of readers.
Play with length:
Make a list of A to Z words (you can always use our A to Z page on Word of the Day Challenge) but don’t focus so much on the subject. Instead, concentrate on the number of words each day… Start with 25 words, and add 25 more every other day, going up to 650, or be more ambitious, and do the same starting with 50, and ending with a 1300 words long post on the last day of your challenge. Or do it backwards… You are the boss of your own blog, after all!
Pay a tribute a day:
You are one of these bloggers, who follow more fellow wordsmiths than most of us could handle? Why not give a shout out to 26 of your favorites, based on their name or the name of their site?
Oh, you’re on Instagram?:
I’ve come to really enjoy Instagram. As much as WordPress is the realm of words for me, Instagram is the perfect place to drop my favorite pictures without having to say much. Why not pick your fav 26, and give them a second chance on your blog with a little comment?
Cook it off!:
You have to eat everyday too, don’t you? So if you have a little time to make your day to day recipe fit the challenge, why not share it with us? I’m sure that’s not a theme that’s been overused the past 9 years 😉
Be up close and personal:
We all like to get to know the bloggers we follow better. Why not share an anecdote-a-day? I’m sure you have enough memories to dig into. You might think that you’ve lived an ordinary life, but I bet we’d beg to differ!
I hope this can help? Please let me know if you’d like me to search for more ideas… I just would hate it if you missed the April Challenge just because of a lack of inspiration.
