A to Z challenge - Blogging, Writing & Creativity

April Come She Will #AtoZChallenge

‘April come she will….’ go the words of Simon and Garfunkel’s lovely song.  For me and my blog/s, April now means Blogging From A to Z . This year, however, I think I’ve overstretched (did I hear someone ask, “What else is new?” ).

Okay, so I’m blogging from A to Z through April here and From 7Eight, managing a Facebook Group we created for this purpose and being one of Arlee’s Ambassadors for the event. Additionally, I’m keeping Write Tribe going with the usual writoning prompts and features!

But most of all, we have loads of personal stuff to catch up on and accomplish….so, I’m starting to feel a little like Stan in the cartoon below! 😉


But you know what? I often think that blogging is a lot like dancing (so what if I don’t dance?)! Why? You have to take one step at a time, go with the flow, let your hair down and just enjoy being you! No one talks about life and dancing better than one of my favourite poets:

Three Things to Remember
As Long as you’re dancing, you can
break the rules.
Sometimes breaking the rules is just
extending the rules.
Sometimes there are no rules.
Mary Oliver (A thousand mornings)

So here I am stretching and overstretching to break the rules!

Team Damyanti, part of the organizing group for the A to Z challenge, came up with a superb idea. To encourage bloggers to have a theme for the challenge, they’ve organized the Great and Powerful Theme Reveal today. You’ll find the link on Vidya’s blog – do visit to see all the wonderful ideas people have come up with.


This is the time that I finally reveal my theme.

It’s “Keeping Life Simple, Authentic and Holistic“! In case you haven’t noticed that’s the tagline of my blog! Gotcha, didn’t I?  😉 Yes, I’ve decided to stick to my usual mix of blogging about life, books, relationships, spirituality and if you’re lucky you’ll see some guest posts here too!  🙂

So if you heard the sound of several drumrolls around the blogging world today you’ll know who is responsible for this – yes it’s us! If you’re a blogger, and if you haven’t already, do join the band

  7. Life itself is a vast topic, you have relationships, books and spirituality there as well. Wonderful choices, best of luck for the challenge.

  8. Hi Corinne

    I admire your ambition. Too many other “irons in the fire” for me so I shall not participate, but will stop by to see what you are up to on your blog in April.
    I scramble to get 4 posts out a month now. Doing too much research on subjects and studying now. Also the usual domestic stuff, including yard work.

    Good luck on your challenge.

  10. I’m sure you will do great justice to your theme Corinne! 😉 Looking forward to your journey…and can I just say I’m in awe at how much you are doing!

  11. Love it, Corinne! Our themes go somewhat hand in hand, you know… No one like dogs to teach us how to Keep It Simple (though I’m not sure about their ideas on holistic lifestyles 😉 ). I’ll be a frequent visitor!

    Thanks for stopping by Life In Dogs earlier, and sorry it took me this long to return the visit. The Theme Reveal turned out Greater and way more Powerful than expected–all due to wonderful bloggers like you and your team 🙂 Thanks for joining the party!
