Get your A to Z Theme Reveal badge!

You have been practicing! We put up a trial post yesterday so that people can experiment with posting their links in the comments, just as they will during the challenge - and everyone seems to be doing pretty great!
So, what's the next step?

Well, if you'd like some more practice - and also, if you are planning on doing a theme! - we are happy to inform you that even though we have no Linky this year, we do have a Theme Reveal! The date is March 20th (Monday), and there will be a Theme Reveal post up here on the main blog, so that you can link your own reveal posts in the comments. 

AND we have a badge for you to display in your post! You can see it below, or download it from here

We are looking forward to all your wonderful themes! Mark your calendars for March 20th!

  2. I've revealed my themes to a few real-life friends, and have dropped some vague hints about future posts on certain topics, though I'm keeping both a secret online until the big reveal. I'm really looking forward to finally revealing them.

  16. This is my first look at the A-Z challenge and it's seems confusing.
    Do we have to have a theme? Can I just start on Day 1 with something beginning with A and then something unrelated beginning with B?
    How do I join? Create Blog? Or sign in. And I can blog from my current Wordpress blog, yes? Thanks, Trish P.S. I'm trying to comment with my Wordpress username, but it comes up with error message URL contains illegal characters

    1. Hi Trish-In case no one answered you, you can blog it however you want as long as it matches the letter of the day.
      Most people do follow with a theme because it makes it easier.
      Have fun and good luck!
