The Great and Powerful A to Z Theme Reveal Blogfest!

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 (good for you!) and if you have not, this is your chance to give it a try! You can sign up to participate here.

One of the most burning questions participants ask themselves every year is: "Should I have a theme?"
Themes are not mandatory, but definitely fun. They let your visitors know what to expect, and help you create posts that line neatly up from A to Z. They also have an added bonus: They let you participate in a whole separate blogfest!

Two years ago A to Z participant Mina Lobo started the Theme Reveal, and we thought it was such a great idea that we made it tradition. It is now our very own, grand and festive way of rolling out our themes together!

Here is how the Theme Reveal Blogfest works:

Sing up on the Linky list below, and on March 23rd (Monday) publish a post on your blog in which you reveal your theme, tell us why it is exciting, and give us a hint of what to expect from it! Then, once your post is up, use the Linky to visit all the other blogs announcing their themes. Enjoy!

This is a great opportunity for all of you to get a jump start on your A to Z experience. You can link up with fellow bloggers, scout out and bookmark themes that you look forward to, and set out delicious themed bait on your blog to lure in wandering participants! This way, by the time the frenzied posting begins on April 1st, you will already have an audience eagerly awaiting your posts.

Sign up below, ready your theme, and post March 23rd on your calendar!

1. The Write Game 2. The Multicolored Diary 3. Tossing It Out 4. J. L. Campbell 5. Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh 6. Susan Says You are next... Click here to enter This list will close in 36 days, 7 hrs, 18 min (3/23/2015 10:00 PM North America - Eastern Standard Time)

  1. I got a basic theme besides the rhyme this year for once, but I still stray along the abc way

  10. Sadly I won't be participating this year due to a pre-scheduled vaca in a warm sunny place. But I'll be checking in on everyone else...

  11. I'm way too busy this year to commit to posting six days a week. The years when I did participate in full, it was always fun.

    At this moment, I'm looking at the list and it's on #96... four more to #100.
    Seems like the excitement is mounting!

  14. I'm not doing A to Z this year. I just don't have it in me. I did it the last two years (and know what it is/how it feels). I will try to read as many posts as I can, but I may just take April off from blogging to focus on my writing (which needs a lot of attention!). However, I wish everyone who's participating to get what they want out of it. It's a wonderful thing:)
