Today is theme reveal day!
This is my third time participating in the A to Z challenge.
I confess I have never used a theme. I have always been a spur of the moment type of guy and for me it was fun. I admit I did get in a bit of trouble once in a while and had to generate some posts “Johnny on the spot” but in the end it all worked out.
This year I was invited by Arlee Bird to play a supporting role in the challenge as an Ambassador so I decided it would be in my best interest (and yours) to involve a theme as well as some scheduled pre-posting.
I am extremely busy this time of year so planning and scheduling are going to be paramount for a successful challenge as well as performing my duties as Ambassador.
So with all that said, (I know, I know, get to the point Mr. Rambler) I sat down one day to decide on a theme. That didn’t work out so well – so I stood up, that didn’t work either.
I had a tough time trying to come up with a theme. Everything I like is already on my blog and some of it is posted heavily. Plus I wanted to be original, or as close to it as possible. Last challenge I leaned heavily towards gardening, so much so, it almost turned into a theme, so I couldn’t really post about that.
I’m sure there is going to be plenty of food based challenges, as well as books and writing and photos and so on and so forth. So here is what I came up with. A little bit of everything!
My theme is a MYRIAD.
It will consist of 6 different categories or sub-themes. Each one posted on the same day of the week as the last. Like so…
Monday – Photos
Tuesday – Informational/DIY
Wednesday – Fiction
Thursday – Memoirs
Friday – Poetry
Saturday – Recipes
I put all the sub-themes in a hat and drew them out one by one and assigned them to a day, starting with Monday. I wanted it to be as random as possible. It worked out decent enough, although there are a few tough ones in there I haven’t figured out yet, but that’s what makes it fun.
I will be restructuring the layout on my blog and as such it will shut down sometime this coming weekend to prepare.
I look forward to reading all of the theme reveals when I get home from work today.
Cheers and happy blogging,
