I've signed up for an April challenge called the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. On every day except Sunday, I have to blog - on April 1 on a topic beginning with A, on April 2 a topic beginning with B, and so forth.
After I signed up, I had a moment of doubt. April, 2015 is the 150th anniversary of a special month in United States history.
In fact, some historians consider April, 1865 as a turning point in our
history - the fall of Richmond, Virginia (the capital of the
Confederate States of America, Confederate General Robert E. Lee's
surrender to Union General (later President) Grant, the assassination of
President Abraham Lincoln, and so much more. Lots of human interest.
But I've made my decision about what to do for A to Z.
I've played around with different themes. Some people have written stories on their blog, 50 words at a time. Others post photographs. The challenge asks that we write at least 100 words a day. This post is a tiny bit more than 250 words.
Just think - photos (and just a few words) from my 3,600 plus photo library on my iPhone. (My son, who calls me a digital horder, would be so proud!) could be another idea.
Places I have visited.
Photos from my guest photographer
Garden Bloggers Bloom Day (April 15) and yes, I've found a way to fit it in.
The ending of the American Civil War.
I've made my decision, looking through my photos. My theme will be Charleston, South Carolina, with a selection of other posts.
Do you plan to join the challenge?
