It’s time for the #A-Z Blogging Challenge and for all those who are participating, preparations are already under way. This is going to be my second year of participation and even though I was not going to participate even until yesterday, I’ve had some inspiration and am now on it (much to my own surprise!!)
It’s a hectic month usually but I do know I’ll enjoy finding and connecting with new bloggers and of course, reconnecting with scores of bloggers from last year. Yes, I know there are zillions of things that might get in the way, but I’d still like to be a part of it and challenge myself.
My theme this year is going to be Life Lessons (what better than that- since I’m still reeling under the wheels of life, getting knocked down and picking up the pieces ever so often) I suppose it’s all part of my eagerness to experience life in all its varying shades, and every time, garnering nuggets of wisdom that continue to guide me, that I feel I ought to share some of that learning with the rest of you!
Of course, the more life I’ve experienced, the more lessons I’ve accumulated over time. And, needless to say, some extremely valuable lessons have also come from other quarters. Some I learned from reading great thinkers like Eckhart Tolle and Byron Katie. Others were passed on from friends, family and sometimes, even strangers (believe it or not!)
So, there goes my theme. Let me confess the real reason why I’m in this challenge -From a writer’s perspective, this challenge is a great way to promote your blog and I’m seeing it as a great tool and a great learning experience. But even more than that, I’m looking at the chance to interact with the many expert and awesome bloggers out there and visiting their blogs, something which I might never get to do, otherwise.
I have no doubt that this is going to be very challenging for me, so do wish me luck, dear friends. It isn’t me if I drop out half-way, so praying things don’t get too difficult. I’m hoping that no matter what comes, I should be able to stick to the challenges until the very end. See you over the coming weeks.
Are you a part of the# AtoZChallenge this year? What’s your theme? Can’t wait to see you in April! 🙂
