A-to-Z Challenge Theme Reveal 2016


atoz-theme-reveal-2016 v2


Ever since I began participating in the A-to-Z Challenge (this will be my third year) it seems the years have gone by much more quickly. At my age, years going by at an even faster rate is not something you look forward to! So, after much thought I have decided to no longer partake in this challenge.


What’s a little premature wrinkling? It’s the Blogging From A-to-Z Challenge, for crying out loud!

“What is the Blogging from A-to-Z Challenge?” some people who have been living under a rock might ask. Well….just the BEST blogging challenge there is!

For the month of April participants will blog every day, except Sunday. Topics for each day have to begin with the letter of that day. So April 1st would be a topic that begins with A, April 2nd would be a B topic, and so on…..

Today, however, is the day that some participants reveal what their theme will be (you don’t have to have a theme, if you don’t want to).

So drum roll please……

Although I had a few new ideas I have decided to go with the theme that I had last year, which was non-profit organizations. I really like the idea of helping to spread awareness of these valuable resources.

Well I am off to check out themes of other A-to-Zers….



    • I’ll miss you participating in the challenge this year : ( I have so much going on I am not sure if I will be able to do it, but I’m going to be giving it my best shot! Thanks for all your support!

  1. It’ll be interesting to learn about the various non-profit organisations in your part of the world and whether or not something similar exist in my country 😀 Good luck!

    • Thank you Tasha. I enjoyed posting about non-profits last year so figured I’d do it again. I love your theme and have signed up to follow your blog. Can’t wait to read what you will be posting. Good luck!

    • Hi Stepheny. I tried to subscribe to your blog but it wouldn’t let me. Kept getting a message to submit a valid email address, which I was. Maybe it’s a glitch in the system, so I will try again later. See you in April as well and good luck!

  2. I can’t wait to read all the A to Z challenges! This is my first year and I am super-psyched!

  3. That’s amazing that you did the same theme last year and yet there are still at least another 26 new organizations to alphabetically highlight! awesome!

    • Last year it was tough finding organizations with the letters X and Z. Thought I wasn’t going to finish! I’m all set for this year though : ) There are organizations that many people don’t even know exist. Last year I was surprised by some of the ones I found.

    • Glad to see you decided to participate! I remember I found this challenge by accident while googling. I wasn’t sure if I should join but I am glad that I did! And here I am three years later! Have you decided on a theme yet? Good luck!

  4. That’s a laudable initiative, hope you get to raise awareness and reach the people you want to reach. here from the A-Z and wish you the very best for the challenge.

    • I did the same theme last year and actually had people from some of the organizations get in touch with me to thank me for spreading awareness. Best wishes to you as well!

  5. This is such a good idea, Cheryl! I love that you’re using the challenge to inform others of the many great people and organizations doing great work–so many unsung heroes! Good luck with the challenge!

    • Thank you! I really enjoyed finding the non-profits last year as many I had never heard of! As I mentioned in another comment, I thought it was nice that some organizations actually got in touch with me to thank me for spreading awareness of their non-profit. Good luck to you as well!

  6. Thanks for the blog luv 😊
    Luv the theme. I’ve been trying to find a charity to do some volunteer work. I have a suspicion that I may find one in your posts. Looking forward to your posts.

    • Over the years I have really enjoyed volunteering. I think it’s the reason the theme for non-profits came to mind. I hope I can help you out with a charity you will consider doing some volunteer work for. I love your theme and can’t wait to learn something myself!

  7. What a great theme for your readers to be able to learn something new. I liked how you added that audio clip for drum roll. Very cool 🙂 I will see you around!
