The Great and Powerful A-Z Theme Reveal Blogfest

Sorry for my absence last week, but my work-related-traveling has gone totally cray-cray. In fact, I'll be out of town yet again on business, so my visits have been spotty at best.

But there's always time to take part in fun blogfests, I decided to participate in the A-Z Theme Reveal Blogfest for the first time.

2015 will mark my fourth time being a part of the amazing worldwide phenomenon knows as the Blogging from A-Z Challenge. I'm pretty sure almost all of you know what it is, but for those who are new, it's a blogging challenge where you have to post every day (but Sunday) during the month of April. And your posts must follow the alphabet. So Day #1 will be "A."

If you haven't signed up yet, you can do so here.

Here's my previous A-Z Challenge themes:

2012: A-Z Everything STEAMPUNK
2013: A-Z The 80s
2014: A-Z One Hit Wonders

This year, the 2015 A-Z Challenge is going to be dedicated to fellow blogger Tina Downey. Tina
struggled from pulmonary hypertension, and she passed away in August of last year. Unfortunately, I wasn't a regular reader of her blog (which started back in 2009), but I got to know her from the tremendous outpouring of love and tributes from her fans.

So Tina, this one's for you!



Without further ado, I'm excited about sharing with you my theme for the Blogging A-Z Challenge for 2015...

A-Z World Mythology

Many of you know how much I love mythology from different cultures and how it's influenced my writing. I grew up reading lots of Greek, Arthurian, Roman, Japanese, Chinese, and some African mythology, and I hope to share my love with all of you. Expect many favorites mixed in with the obscure. I'm going to include Norse, Aztec, Arabian, Hebrew, Hindu, and even Native American myths.

Looking forward to being a part of this big challenge. My favorite part is getting to visit new blogs and being visited by new readers. It's going to be a blast!

jaybird said...

Jay- I have always enjoyed your themes in the past and have been secretly jelly that I didn't think of them myself...dang it! How are you are just so stinking clever every year? This year proves to be no different- I love mythology and am stoked to see all that you have in store for us.

Sounds like a great theme! In high school English, I always got the Roman and Greek gods confused, but they were interesting characters!

Hi Jay, I'm looking forward to the variety of mythology, and finding out something new! Good for you doing this for four years - it's the first time for me, and I'm enjoying it a lot already. Happy A to Z!

Good luck in your A-Z challenge, Jay. Should be some interesting reading as mythology is a pretty cool subject. Take care my friend.

Anna Soliveres said...

Sorry to hear about Tina. :( What a wonderful way to commemorate by dedicating your A to Z theme to her.

About your work travels. I'm really glad to hear that you're still able to manage your writing career on top of work-travel demands. I'm in the same boat. Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but it's wearisome at this point. LOL

Milo James Fowler said...

I look forward to your posts, Jay!

Jay Noel said...

Thanks everyone!

Carrie Butler said...

Score! I LOVE mythology. :D

Mark Noce said...

Power to you for doing the challenege:) I'm afraid I'm not much good at these.
