2017 A-Z Blogging Challenge: Theme Reveal

While the A-Z Blogging Challenge has been around for several years, this is my second time to participate - and I am thrilled!

For those who are unfamiliar with this annual event, the challenge runs from April 1-30 and encourages bloggers to write a post a day (except for Sundays) - each day focusing on a different letter of the alphabet.

Last year my theme was Paris A-Z - to tie in with a middle grade novel I was writing that focused on the French Impressionists. (As an addendum... I did complete the first draft and am now working on revisions).

This year I will focus on another personal passion: Journaling.

I've taught a journaling class for a couple of years, which led me to write a non-fiction ebook about Journaling Towards Wholeness, which I plan to self-publish within the next two months. These blog posts will serve as an overview of that book.

While I may change these daily topics as I see fit, this is the current timeline of April's blog posts. I will provide links as they become available.

There's still time to participate - if interested. You don't even have to have a theme. It is simply a great way to meet new people and develop a blogging routine.

I hope to see you back here on Saturday, April 1st. I'd love to connect with fellow journalers, or perhaps inspire some of you to give it a try.


  1. What a wonderful theme! I don't journal, but it's something I've toyed with from time to time. Looking forward to learning more about it through your A to Z posts.

    1. I bet you would be a great journaler! Don't worry so much about complete sentences, but rather, just getting the thoughts down on the page.

  2. I did this for many years until I discovered blogging...look forward to your posts!

    1. I enjoy blogging and journaling - bviously I'm not short on words :)

  3. Interesting topic. I'm looking forward to picking up some tips :)

  4. This is fantastic. I'm really looking forward to this as I have always been someone who is interested in journaling but have never really figured it out!
