Theme Reveal – #atozchallenge

April A-Z Challenge

One of the highlights in the blogging year for me, is the April A-Z Challenge. I have participated every year since 2015 on each of my three blogs. One year, I even took the challenge full on and participated on two blogs. This was a huge committment and I really didn’t enjoy it that year, as I was constantly under pressure, for the entire month. But every other year, I have loved this challenge and found so many positives in being involved.

The 2020 April A-Z Challenge is now almost here. Starting on April 1, the challenge is to publish a post every day in April, except for Sundays. That makes 26 day, so one day for each letter of the alphabet. April 1 is A, and so on through the month to Z.

Using this premise, you would start beginning April 1, with a topic on something with the letter A, then on April 2, another topic with the letter B, and so on until you finish on April 30, with a topic based on letter Z. The theme for each day is the scheduled letter for the day.

This challenge started in 2010, when it was first presented to bloggers, who didn’t hesitate to get on board. The number of bloggers participating every year has grown and is now huge. Also huge, are the variety of blogs and blog topics.

Theme Reveal 2020

Most bloggers choose a theme for the A-Z Challenge, but it’s not necessary. Today, there is much excitement amongst the participating bloggers, as today is ‘Theme Reveal Day.’

My theme is Book Reviews. Each day in April, I will post a new book review from A-Z. Books reviewed will be all genres. My only stipulation is that they are books that I have read. My policy is that I don’t review books that I have not read.

I am very much looking  forward to reading about the themes that have been chosen by other bloggers. This is part of the fun of the A-Z Challenge.

I would love you to join me. To keep up with the latest book reviews, please pop your email address in the box on the sidebar. This will ensure you are notified of updates.

Theme Reveal – Blogging April A-Z Challenge 2019

What is Blogging April A-Z Challenge?

The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is for bloggers who wish to participate by publishing a new blog post every day in April, except for Sunday. Each blog post will focus on a letter of the alphabet. For example, April 1 will be A, April 2 will be B, and on it goes. By the end of April, a blog post for every letter of the alphabet will have been posted.

Bloggers can choose a theme to blog about. My links, at the end of this post, to my previous A-Z challenges show examples of themes. Some bloggers choose not to have a theme, and they post on different topics every day. It’s up to the individual blogger, as to how they wish to participate. I do prefer to have a theme as it gives me focus and structure. You can find more information here

My previous A-Z Challenges

This will the fourth year that I’ve participated in the challenge. But this year it’s especially exciting for me, as 2019 is the first year that I participate on this blog, which is very new, having been launched in January 2019.

Theme Reveal

This post today, is my Theme Reveal post which is where I announce my theme for the Challenge. Bloggers who choose to have a theme, usually write a ‘Theme Reveal’ post, which is published in late March.

My theme for 2019 is Book Reviews. The theme continues on with the usual content of this blog, but by the end of the month there will be 26 new reviews published. One for each letter of the alphabet. Reviews will be both new releases and older publications. They will be both fiction and non-fiction What they will all have in common, is that I will have read every book, so you can be guaranteed that all reviews will be my honest opinion.

If you are after a recommendation for that next book to read, or just want the enjoyment of reading about books, do join me in working through the alphabet of books in April.
