AtoZ Theme Reveal

Sign-ups for the 2015 A to Z Blogging Challenge are already under way. If you have done it before, you know how much fun it is, but if you have not, you should at least try once.

You can sign up to participate during the month of April, here.

When joining AtoZ, have you ever asked yourself, "Should I have a theme?"
Themes are not mandatory or needed if you are a panster, but if you're a plotter... I'd recommend it.

Two years ago, A to Z participant 
Mina Lobo
started the Theme Reveal, and the fore"fathers" of AtoZ thought it was such a great idea to make it a tradition.

The forefatherspeople:

Arlee Bird @ Tossing it Out
Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh
Jeremy @ Hollywood Nuts
Nicole Ayers @ The Madlab Post
Author Stephen Tremp
Heather M. Gardner
AJ @ Naturally Sweet
Pam @ An Unconventional Librarian
Matthew MacNish @ The QQQE
Zalka Csenge Virág @ The Multicolored Diary
S. L. Hennessy @ Pensuasion
C. Lee McKenzie @ The Write Game
Joy Campbell @ The Character Depot
Susan Gourley @ Susan Says
John Holton @ The Sound of One Hand Typing
Lisa Buie-Collard, Author

Are you wanting to reveal your AtoZ theme too? Sign ups are found here.

My theme: 411

What is 4-1-1 you ask? Well the Urban Dictionary says: Another term used for "information". Hence dialing 411 for information.

Example: "I totally just got the 4-1-1 on the new girl."

Soooo, I'm gonna give you the 4-1-1 on:
  • 4 random words/descriptions/tools about myself,
  • 1 blog I adore so much I would like everyone else to follow (it's only 26 new amazing blogs to add to your list if you haven't already),
  • 1, 2015 novel.
  • Which all start with the letter of the day (Or close enough to it)!

Simple right?! Yeah, I thought so too.

That's the key; K-I-S-S - Keep It Simple, Stupid!
(Disclaimer, I'm not calling anyone stupid, it's only a saying.)


  1. Doesn't sound simple to me, sounds like you have been thinking very hard :). It also sounds most interesting. I look forward to seeing what you have come up with in April.
