One of the questions doing the rounds:
What do I blog about? Does it all have to be about the same thing?
Short Answer: No, but it helps to have a theme.
You can just post on your blog 26 different things for 26 days of April, and you've still won the challenge.
Some folks do it each month of the year (-- they even do 31 posts a month, don't ask me how, I do about 8. Ok, maybe 10 if I'm feeling productive).
If you're one of those daily bloggers, and have an established audience, I would still recommend an A to Z Blogging Challenge Theme. If you're not, I'll recommend a theme.
- Because a theme sticks in the minds of people, aka, your visitors.
- A blog challenge is about building community-- so if folks remember you from you challenge posts, they'll be blog friends for longer.
- You also have to do less work in some cases, because once you thoroughly research a topic, your posts come that much easier!
- Niche audience: It is important to attract the core audience of your blog, because they'll remain loyal due to their interest in a particular topic-- and if you blog on that topic for the #atozchallenge , you can be sure to attract a regular band of followers.
So, if you wish you can blog without a theme. I'm only saying Blogging for A to Z challenge might be so much more effective for your blog if you have a theme!
And if you do have a theme, you may choose to reveal it on March 21st through the A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal 2014, hosted by Anna Tan Csenge, Zalka, Guilie Castillo Oriard , Samantha Geary Jones and Vidya Sury.
