Blogging A to Z

Maine A-Z | Blogging Challenge 2016

I thought a good way to get my blog off the ground would be to participate in some blogging challenges. One particular challenge that caught my eye was the “Blogging from A to Z Challenge” scheduled for April 2016.

I have always loved A-Z challenges. The first scrapbook I ever made was an A-B-C one. I love the creativity that comes out of working with constraints. I also like that this blogging challenge requires daily posts, other than on Sundays, for the entire month of April which will help me to build a strong foundation for my blog.

While I actually revealed my theme earlier, as I didn’t realize there was a “big reveal” day as part of the challenge, I thought today would be a good day to update and highlight my theme a little further as part of the theme reveal.

Since this site focuses on my love of all things Maine, I plan to keep the challenge posts connected to Maine in some fashion too. While my theme is Maine centered, the posts themselves will take a variety of approaches to highlight different aspects of the state. I am really looking forward to mixing things up and trying out new things.

Please check back to this section in April to see all my official A-Z challenge posts. I’m looking forward to seeing what other people are going to do with their A-Z challenge too.

    Hi, I’m just stopping by from the big reveal on A to Z. I’ve never been to Maine, but it’s on my list of places I really want to visit. I’ve done the A to Z challenge for the last 4 years, and it’s lots of fun. Thanks for joining us.

    Interesting! My blog is also just starting. Hopefully a-to-z can generate some interest, and hopefully I can keep posting regularly after April. I know very little about Maine, but my other blog that isn’t participating is a travel blog and I’ve heard good things about Maine. May need to check in to see what you’re posting.

      I love the idea of using the challenge to get to know other bloggers and to check out their sites. It’s really helpful to a newbie like me.

      Good luck with your new blog and with the challenge. I’ll be sure to swing by and check it out.

      Thank you for visiting. I have a good friend who moved to the west coast over a decade ago, but she still considers Maine home. It stays with you!

      I’ll be sure to check out your posts too. I’m really looking forward to connecting with other bloggers.

      Maine is a wonderful destination. I hope you’re able to get back here some day. I’m new to the challenge, but definitely working my way through the a-z participants list. I’m excited to visit other bloggers and learn some things. I’m new to this world. Looking forward to seeing which first paragraphs you highlight during the challenge!

      Thank you! I’m having lots of fun getting my posts prepped and am looking forward to visiting other blogs.

      I love your site. My youngest is a writer and I’m going to have her checkout your resources for teen writers.

    Welcome to the Challenge and kuddos for wadding in! Through the Challenge a person could, over the years, literally see the world I believe. People have highlighted certain states, certain cities, certain countries. They done libraries around the world and churches. It’s wonderful!
    Revisit the Tender Years with me during the #AtoZChallenge at Life & Faith in Caneyhead!

      Thank you for stopping by my blog! I love to travel and it’s so fun to get a feel for a place through other people’s blogs.

      I’m excited by the challenge and will be sure to check back to your site during April. I have a section on my site for childhood memories too. It’s always fun to look back on wonderful memories from the past.

    Welcome to the Challenge! I did a theme on Michigan (where I’m from) last year and its a lot of fun to learn about places in your home state!
