A to Z Challenge April 2021: Post #0

This is my first A to Z Challenge, in April 2021. TAG #AtoZChallenge. Host John Holton, has a special blog post introducing this year’s A to Z Challenge.

This challenge involves posting almost daily in April, from Monday to Saturday. Starting April 1, the post would be focused on a keyword starting on the letter of the alphabet A. April 2 will have a keyword that starts with letter B. And etc. Sunday is a rest day. The next posting day repeats the cycle of Monday to Saturday, using the remaining letters of the alphabet.

I’m unsure what to blog about so I choose my theme to be “Other and Miscellaneous”.

If you’re interested to join, go to John’s blog post #AtoZChallenge at the link, before March 20 2021. He collects the list of blogs joining in this challenge. He has a dedicate web form for you to sign up and state your choice of theme you desire to blog about in April.

  1. Welcome to the A2Z community! This is a great way to meet new blogging friends while learning much about many topics throughout April. I’m unsure what your theme is or if you’re doing a random art. Whatever you do, just enjoy it and I shall look forward to popping over to see what you share next month. I hope when you have a moment that you’ll check out my theme reveal in, I’m Making It Official on Curious as a Cathy. Happy a2zing!

  2. Hi Cathy. I visited your blog & read some of your old posts. I tried to comment on your Theme Reveal post but got an error message “Error: Google failed to return an expected code.”

    I like your art and your theme for 2021.
