Theme Revealed!

April 1 begins the Blogging from A to Z challenge. For anyone not familiar with this, bloggers accept the challenge of writing daily posts that correspond with a letter from the alphabet.

Typically, most bloggers select a central theme around which to build their alphabetically oriented posts. I did this last year and focused posts on “enlightenment” — pretty heavy duty and much was revealed. This year I decided to go even deeper with my theme.

Wait for it…

My theme for my Blogging from A to Z for 2017 will be: “The Essential Calvin and Hobbes”.

Yup. Not sure how this will shake out exactly, but climb inside your Radio Flyer and hang on tight because I’m sure it will be a bumpy and thrilling ride.

  1. Oh, this ought to be fun.

    1. Thanks Jennifer, fingers crossed.

  2. Interesting theme. I think I have a Calvin and Hobbs anthology somewhere around this house. See you in April.

    1. Thanks Valerie. That book would be a more than suitable companion for the challenge. See you in a couple days…

  3. You inspired me to pick a theme for my own A-Z series and make a list of post ideas. Thanks! 😁

    1. Do it! and be sure to share it. Thanks Allison.

  4. Good luck! Sounds like tremendous fun!

  5. How fun! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

    1. Drop by and check the posts out! Thank you.

  6. Would you believe I know little about them? I wonder if I’ll get your posts then. What do you think?

    1. Can’t wait to see what you think of the posts. Let me know once they start rolling in. Thank you Carol.

  7. My husband was a huge Calvin & Hobbs lover!! I’ll have to have him check it out along the way since it’ll be right up his alley!

    1. Please do. I’m having fun planning it out.

  8. Love it! This is going to be grand!

  9. Haven’t got a clue who Calvin & Hobbes are but I guess it will be interesting to find out come April 😊

    1. Stick around Linda and we will get you acquainted. Thanks for reading and sharing.

  10. I can’t wait to see what you do with this. I LOVE Calvin and Hobbes!

    1. I love them as well. Can’t wait to see where they take me over the next month.

  11. I do this every year, too, only with the Greek Alphabet. 🙂

    I do love me some Calvin and Hobbes, though. One of my all time favorite strips with Bloom County and The Far Side!

    1. Greek Alphabet — you better forward those posts to me. Or, if you really want a challenge, translate Calvin and Hobbes into Greek.

  12. Yes! True story I had a Calvin and Hobbes shirt I bought on Spring Break in Daytona Beach my senior year of high school. Hobbes was bonging a beer and Calvin was smoking a left handed cigarette, my mother was so proud when I got home!

    1. As a fellow Gen-Xer, this tale brings a tear to my eye… Mother should have been proud.

  13. I did the challenge last year. Good luck with your theme and daily posting.

    1. I appreciate that; looking forward to it.

  14. Well, that’s an amazing theme!
