A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal



The 2015 Blogging from A to Z Challenge is right around the corner. So if you haven't signed up yet, you'd better hop to it. Right now though, it's time for the challenge's associated theme reveal blogfest, where participants get to reveal and elaborate upon their chosen themes for the year. You can click here for a full list of participants.

This would mark my fourth straight year participating in the challenge. For the 2012 Challenge, I decided to go with a movies theme, during which I wrote reviews to some of my favorite movies. In 2013, I went with a books theme, highlighting some of my favorite speculative fiction books. In 2014, I had a video games theme, and I got to wax lyrical about 26 of my favorite video game franchises. Which brings us to this year.

For the 2015 Challenge, I have settled upon (cue the drum rolls) a music theme. Surprise, surprise, considering the fact that I have already stated I was leaning towards one. To elaborate, for each letter of the alphabet, I'll be picking one of my favorite musical acts, whose significance/achievements I would then proceed to discuss, before highlighting their music at the end of the post with a YouTube video of one of their songs.

And there you have it, the general layout of my posts. I've been working towards getting everything scheduled by the end of the month, to free up time to visit other blogs come next month, since I have also taken up minion duties. I am presently halfway through my posts, so hopefully I'll have the remaining half scheduled before the Challenge begins.

So here's hoping you visit during the Challenge, and stick around long enough to see whether I feature some of your favorite acts or songs.

  1. Hey, I'm doing Musical Memories. Will be interesting to see if we have any of the same singers, groups, etc. Should be a cool theme for anyone who loves music! And who doesn't love music?! The same odd folks who don't like chocolate or cheese.

  2. Music! Nice :) Every once in a while I tell my students to bring in their favorite music, and we talk about musical genres and culture. Those are my (and their) favorite classes. I always find something new for my playlist :)

    1. That would've been great, Tony. Kinda like in 2012 when we both had a movies theme. But I am sure whatever you do decide to settle upon as your theme would be just as awesome. :D
