#AtoZChallenge | Theme Reveal


This year, I am participating in the Blogging from A to Z ChallengeThis is my first time, and it was Maria who inspired me by completing the challenge in 2015. 

Click the link to learn more about it. But, to summarize: it consists in posting every day (except Sundays) during April, and do it thematically from A to Z.

There is not compulsory to have a theme. But, as they say, it is fun. My posts will be mainly about postcards I have got. Some will be short, some will be more elaborated and containing my usual mail adventures.

I hope you will enjoy it as much as I am. Let me know what you think! And also, let me know if you decide to join the challenge, too.

  1. I love the sound of your theme!
    It takes me back to the days of handwritten cards and watching out for the postman who trudged on foot from postbox to postbox...
    Hop over to read all about your daily dose of inspiration in my theme reveal post!

    1. Hello, Michelle! Thanks for coming. I hope I will keep the posts interesting.

      I am afraid that the link is not working. Can you write it again, please?

  2. Oh, postcards! I like it :) I don't get (or send) as many as I want to, but I am always happy when someone asks me to send one from my travels :) Fun theme!

    1. After my struggle during TFP, I am starting to think that X is not a difficult letter, but an impossible one!

    2. Does it have to be an English word?

  6. What about postcards from Quebec for Q? Z might be difficult... Zambia? Zimbabwe? Looking forward to seeing your postcards!

    1. I wrote it wrong: I have already a word for Z. It is Y that I am still looking for!

      Thanks for your suggestion of Quebec. Let's see if I use it... :)

    1. And if selfmade/drawn postcards count, I could draw you a xylophone :-)

    2. Or what about the famous 'emoji' xoxo ?
      Historical figures: Xerxes?
      A girl named Xantippe?
      Languages: the South African xhosa (not sure if you write it this way but I can look it up if you want)
      A Brazilian song named Xango?! :-)

      Let me know if I can help you to complete with any letter!

    3. To be short: this project is sooo inspiring!

    4. Now that I have scheduled some posts, I have a lot of ideas!

      These are the missing letters: E, G, Q, X and Y.

      For E and GI am sure I will find something soon. But it would be cool if you find any postcard for the rest. I would give your credit on the post, of course!

      Anyway, don't worry. As I wrote to Phillip, a lot of postcards sent by you are already going to appear during the chalenge :D

    The letter X is stumping me this year too. Last year I think I just got away with it. I'm glad it is at the end of the month to give me some extra thinking/writing time.

  14. Postcards are a fabulous idea. I know - x, q and z can leave you feeling desperate. I figured those out this year first, before signing up. It's sooo stressful otherwise. But I'm sure you'll think of something.

  15. I LOVE POSTCARDS! Thank you SO much for stopping by and commenting, otherwise I wouldn't have found you. Regarding your "missing" letters: I'll dig around in my collection. But maybe just a search on The Google will do it for you! Surprisingly, my hardest letter was "Y" this year.

    2. Those signatures can be tricky...
      I have just received a postcard that I can use for Y. This is going to be funny (and a bit messy).
