A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal

I know what you guys are thinking right now. “Your slack ass is going to sign up for a month-long blogging challenge? Ha.”

I’ve done the A to Z Challenge for the past three years, so obviously I’ve gotta get on board for this one, too. Time might not be plentiful at the moment, but I’m gonna do my best with it, anyway.

Always a day or two late to the party…

My theme for the A to Z Challenge this year is:





(Had to be a little bit dramatic with it, right?)

A Blast To The Past

So, for the month of April, I will be choosing certain historical events to create crappy doodles of. The American Revolution? Doodled. Jesus ascending into heaven? Doodled. The Hindenburg disaster? Doodled.

Before you click the “X” and think, “Ain’t no way I’m signing up for this,” this is the part where I tell you that I’m kidding. While “A Blast to the Past” is definitely my theme, I’m staying as far away from historical events and figures as I possibly can. Outside of WW2, history makes me snooze, so no doodles of beheadings or whatever from me.

Instead, I’ll be doodling things that have happened in my life, my kids’ lives, etc. Some of the posts may be doodles you’ve seen already (depending on whether I’m running behind or need something to fit a certain letter for a day), and others will be brand new material. Just so you know, the past can be anywhere from when I was a kid until last week.

So, now you know the game plan. Hopefully it won’t be as tough as last year, when I did the “Things Kids Say” theme and ended up changing half of my pre-planned topics! At the end of April, I’ll reveal something I’m working on blog-wise that will probably make this whole “slack blogger” to “blogs every day blogger” transformation make sense even more.

Now…who else is doing the A to Z Challenge? Where my people?

I’m a SAHM to two kids. When I’m not doing all the typical mom things (diapers, soccer, etc.), I like writing, reading, and playing games. Clearly I live the life of a rock star.

      1. I’m trying to work them in… since it’s memoir, it has to be a story that I can tell that relates to me. I’m thinking maybe a day of guilty pleasures. πŸ™‚

      2. All the kids are doing orchestra concerts now. It’s, like, a thing. I personally don’t like the idea because part of the fun is being able to improvise a song, for instance. With the orchestra playing with them, that’s not going to happen.

      3. I had no idea that’s a thing (but I don’t really keep up with anyone else haha). It’s intriguing, but I wish they’d focus on getting that album out they promised two years ago.

  2. Three years in a row? Madness says I….oh wait, you don’t know me yet….my bad. Except…I searched for this challenge and your post was the first. Another blogger has been persuading me, rather trying to, and yet this was the post I linked to the challenge from and in a rash moment signed up. I lay firm blame upon your shoulders for this ridiculous commitment πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Good luck 😊
