A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal Day! #atozchallenge

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!

Three 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.

Here is how the Theme Reveal Blogfest works:

Sign up on the Linky List below. On Monday, March 21 (TODAY!) reveal your theme on your blog and give us a hint of what to expect from it. Then, once your post is up, use the Linky List to visit all the other blogs announcing their themes.

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 lure in wandering participants with your awesome theme. This way, by the time the frenzied posting begins on April 1, you will already have an audience eagerly awaiting your posts.

Be sure to visit others on the list and find some awesome themes!

I don't do the Theme Reveal as my theme doesn't change - food related again.

Great to see so many people participating today! :) This is my third year. It's challenging to come up with a different theme each time.

I got mine up! Stop on by to see what I have this April.

It was fun being on your team last year, Jeremy. Can we do that again, with Cusack too?

Deborah R. Hawkins said...

I definitely forgot to put (GA) on this linky list!

Patricia Lynne said...

I'm pretty sure one day the theme will be as along as the main challenge linky list!

Michelle Wallace said...

I do love how the reveal helps get the abc moving!

Alex - Thanks for doing this again this year. I'm signing up multiple blogs. Just noticed I typo'ed my email address in a few of my blog links for Mr Linky.
I left out an "S" in the address. You will see where, if you have a chance to look. It makes a lot more sense with the S (as in SAY). ;-)

Hi everyone, I'm No 486. I'd forgotten today was the A to Z reveal for April's fun Challenge. So I've added it on the end of my Star Trek movie post which doesn't make it very visible because of its length. Word to the wise - short blog posts are winners!

Linda Ann Nickerson said...

OK, I think I am ready now. Thinking FIVE blogs may be enough this time. (I know. Cutting back.)

Theme reveal posts appear here:

A-Z #466:
Coming in April: Job Picks from A to Z

A-Z #470:
April theme reveal: Dandy dog names from A to Z

A-Z #481:

A-Z #503:

And you know I forgot to post on one of my blogs. Time sort of sneaks up on you.
Oh well, I'll spend my week checking out as many as I can. Cheers.

I have tried a couple of times to enter my name/blog on the list and it isn't taking. Can anyone help?? :-)

Beverley Baird said...

last year I used the blog I listed for 196. But since I am focusing on art again, I thought I would switch blogs. Here is my reveal: http://bunnysgirl.blogspot.ca/2016/03/today-is-a-to-z-theme-reveal-for-april.html

I didn't link up as I didn't know if I was goin' to do this year. I did one other time and man it challenged me. But, I think I will do this year. I have been in sort of a bloggin'/writin' slump and this'll be just the thing to help push me out. My theme will be Texas since this is what I mainly write about

Posted my theme reveal late but it will be A to Z reviews of young adult books.
