Apparently I can’t resist a challenge.
It’s that time of year again for the A to Z Challenge which starts on April 1st. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the A to Z, it involves a daily post – with the exception of Sundays – throughout the month of April. Each post revolves around a letter of the alphabet. Twenty-six letters, twenty-six days.
I’ve participated in the A to Z for the past 2 years and through the challenge I’ve met some amazing bloggers, but I was going to take a pass this year. I have a very busy spring ahead of me and I didn’t want to have the additional burden of daily posting and visiting new blogs.
Yet, I couldn’t resist the siren call and signed up in spite of my better judgement.
Today is Theme Reveal Day. It is the day that bloggers who will be following a theme for their A to Z posts, reveal that theme if they chose to.
My first year of the A to Z, I blogged just random stuff from day to day – no advance preparation, just a daily dash. It was both exhilerating and exhausting.
Last year I prepared most of my posts weeks in advance. Each letter of the alphabet was a personal story from my past. It was still exhilerating, but in spite of the advance prep work, it was also still exhausting.
I can’t believe I’m doing it again.
This year my theme will be based entirely on my travels. These upcoming A to Z posts will focus mostly on photos and less on words … assuming of course that I get my laptop back from the Geek Hospital and my external hard-drive will give up my photos still being held hostage.
Some of the posts will feature photos that are relatively new. Some will be very old. I’ve tried to avoid the this-is-me-in-front-of-the-Eiffel-Tower kind of photos and I hope I’ve managed to select ones that are a bit different – even if the photo quality is a rather iffy.
I apologize in advance to those of you who will cringe everyday in April when you see my name pop up YET AGAIN, day after day. My only promise to you is that I’ve tried to keep these posts short.
On the other hand, I hope that you will enjoy my photo journey down memory lane.
