A to Z theme reveal

I quit NaBloPoMo in December on 20th day and I couldn’t gather up the courage to take up the Ultimate Blog Challenge in January. But with spring setting in, I got enthusiastic again and signed up for the A to Z challenge for April.

The deal here is to blog on every day, except Sunday of April on something from A to Z. Now, having signed up in enthusiasm, I have been stuck with the theme.

Almost everything that I decided sounded either too boring or too challenging. Therefore in the end, I decided to do what I love doing the most.


My theme for A to Z challenge is Reviews. Yes! Reviews A to Z. It could be a shop, a product, a website, a place, etc.. I will be reviewing 26 different things starting from A to Z. (In case you have any suggestions, please write to me) Also, I got my little own logo made for this A to Z with a little help from Google images.

It is a busy month but I see many taking up this challenge while they are busier, which in turn gives me a lot of motivation. Let’s hope I sail through it.

What’s new in the store?

Alright! In case you haven’t noticed, I am back. Of course with me, back are the contests, stories, tales, rants and much more.

So what’s new with this return?

It sounds like a bit late to plan for 2014 but it’s just 15th day of the year and we still have 350 days to go.

I have been racking my brain for about two weeks to find out what’s the best way to do it and couldn’t find any. But what I could come up with were some plan and targets and of course some themes.

1. Richa did a travel week and I did a post for her. It was hilarious, and response I received was great. I guess I am going to do more of those. I will now have Travel tales on Thursdays. Alternate week, two tales a month, I am going to do about 20 tales in this year. And if you think you have got a tale to tell, please go ahead. Let me know and I will plan a guest post for you.

2. Tell a tale weekends is going to be a weekly feature. It is going to contain all my narrations based on prompts and contests. This is what my blog is and I will continue to do it.

3. And Blog features – is going to be pinned post for a month where a blogger friend will be interviewed and featured. Time to get some limelight all you guys there :)

4. I am also going to have a special section for the times When a non-blogger blogs. I have come across a few, and am sure you have too who read a blog and are inspired to write something. However, they aren’t ready to blog it yet. Please direct them to my blog. I have a space reserved for one post by a non-blogger guest per month.

Excited, aren’t you? Of course I am now going to write to you personally to be featured, write a guest post and various other helps. Wish you all a wonderful 2014.
