Theme Reveal – Blogging from A to Z

Today is the day for bloggers (1,152 participants as of this writing!) to reveal their chosen theme for the 2015 A to Z Blogging Challenge. A theme isn’t required, and many bloggers choose not to have a theme, which is perfectly acceptable.

I’ve always picked a theme – it helps me maintain focus for the month of blog posts. And I have deliberately kept my posts short, as the idea of this event is to visit as many new blogs as possible.

This year I’ve titled my theme Listen Up! If you know me, you know I love travel, food, music, and literature. In 2012, I blogged about writers, essayists, lyricists, and poets. In 2013, it was Oh! The Places I’ve Been! And last year’s theme was Smile and Say…. (an alphabetical blog about cheese). This year we’ll visit musical instruments from A to Z, with a post each day except Sundays in April.

So I hope you’ll tune in! If you don’t already follow my blog, you can sign up right on the main page.





I was going to do that too b/c the family has been in a lot of musical. Now they are professional ballet dancer’s. I don’t want to steal your idea. What should I do ??? Blessings ❤

What a great theme! Looking forward…

This is a great theme! It caught my eye on Alex Hurst’s roundup. Your past themes seem really interesting too (a whole month of cheese? sign me up!) and I’ll definitely be around in April for your A-Z.

Looking forward to your orchestral movement! 🙂 This is my first year to play!

Wow, sounds like a challenging theme! Looking forward to reading (hearing?) more.

This is going to be fun. I’ll look forward to your posts!

And you will play all of them too, right?
Looking forward to your challenge. I’ve wailed on a saxophone a time or two!

That’s the theme I chose last year. I’ll be interested to see how you tackle it. Sue

Paula, I always make sure I can cover those letters before I begin, because I know they can really derail the best intentions for a theme. I’m already thinking about next year and will probably lay it out (Excel spreadsheet) over the coming months. Either way, I hope you do it!

I now have two musical themes to follow! Kinda sorry I missed the cheese though – might have to go back and check that out once the current challenge is over.

This is a fantastic challenge and one I can look forward to! As someone who is musically illiterate, this will help me get some fun knowledge in bite-sized pieces. Great stuff!

A-Z Blogging in April Participant

Martha, you are a pro at this, but is there a way you can make your Comment, Leave a Reply easier to see/find? It is in small red type under the likes, which isn’t prominent. Since the point is to encourage comments, maybe something larger will help people who are in a hurry trying to read a lot of blogs. Just a thought.

    Hi Stepheny – And thank you for pointing that out to me. I work on a desktop with a huge monitor, so it’s not an issue. But I should be mindful that many people read blogs on a smaller mobile device. I don’t think I can change the theme now, since all the April posts have been written, but it’s something to consider. Perhaps it’s time for an update to the WordPress theme!

That is fantastic, Martha. I will never forget your theme last year and the current one promises to be very good. I am looking forward to listening up.

Looking foward to this, Martha!

I have been racking my brain for a theme but nothing is coming to me at the minute 😦
