#AtoZChallenge 2019 – Theme Reveal #BlogchatterA2Z

#AtoZChallenge 2019 – Theme Reveal #BlogchatterA2Z

The month April gets its name from the Greek Goddess of love, Aphrodite. The Roman calendar also spells it as ‘Aprilis’, which means ‘to open.’ People in Northern Hemisphere usually associate April with spring, which suits it perfectly as it is the season when new flowers and plants bloom. I, being the Joker, associate it with fun since it begins with the April Fool’s Day.
The blogging community for the past decade celebrates it for the A to Z Challenge. This year celebrating its 10th anniversary, it is a global blogging challenge scheduled for the month of April.
About the Challenge
One is supposed to post on each and every day of April, except Sundays i.e. 26 posts for 26 days. Each post should have a title highlighting the alphabets from A to Z. For example post 1 should have ‘A’ as its hero, post 2 should have ‘B’ as its hero and so on. There are no strict rules how you want to use the word in the title – it can be anything, from a name to a place…from a noun to a verb. Everything is fine until the Alphabet compliments the day and is in continuous order.
Blogchatter has soon become the home of all the major blogging campaigns and challenges in India. A to Z Challenge, in India, is also orchestrated primarily by them. These challenges and campaigns are a perfect way to explore, meet and build on your reading fraternity. It, not only, exposes you to the community but helps you build an international audience too. I got associated with them last year during the Blogchatter Ebook carnival and since then have participated in most of their online events.
These carnivals have definitely increased my reader base, along with improving my Alexa rank dramatically. It has egged me on to be more consistent in writing and form newer bonds, which contribute in so many ways.
I want to keep it short and head straight to the Challenge.
So finally, going to reveal my theme. Ohh! I wish I could have some background music.
I guess I am the last person who would be unveiling his theme for the #AtoZChallenge. Nonetheless, would be still giving it my best shot. Do remember this is my first attempt at the A to Z Challenge.
I have decided to go ahead with not one but two themes. Yeah! You read it right. I am going ahead with two themes. Considering this is my first attempt at the A to Z Challenge, I might be overestimating.
I believe the Joker just needed this sort of push to spread its Jokerophilia and create its own CirqueDuJoker.
The THEME
The themes are:- Travel and Politics.
Why these themes:
I was confused till today morning with which one I should go ahead. I even did a small poll with my friends and got blurring replies. Hence, finally decided to go ahead with both of them. (At least will be able to come up with one post 😉 )
For Travel theme: I choose ‘Dubai – the city of Gold’ as the location I would be posting about. It is only place apart from India that I have stayed for a year and have visited it most number of times.
For Politics theme: IPL is on and just like before the 2014 General Elections of India I think it would be appropriate if I will be able to contribute my bit before the 2019 General Elections. For me; IPL carries two meanings – Indian Premier League and Indian Parliamentary League.
Do let me know what you think about my themes?
Now, all I need is support and encouragement from you all so that I can successfully survive the #AtoZchallenge. Keep me in your prayers 🙂
