The Great and Powerful A to Z Theme Reveal Blogfest!

A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal List

Sign-ups for the 2015 A to Z Blogging Challenge are already under way. If you have done it before, you know how much fun it is (good for you!) and if you have not, this is your chance to give it a try! You can sign up to participate here.

One of the most burning questions participants ask themselves every year is: "Should I have a theme?"
Themes are not mandatory, but definitely fun. They let your visitors know what to expect, and help you create posts that line neatly up from A to Z. They also have an added bonus: They let you participate in a whole separate blogfest!

Two years ago A to Z participant Mina Lobo stared the Theme Reveal, and we thought it was such a great idea that we made it tradition. It is now our very own, grand and festive way of rolling out our themes together!

Here is how the Theme Reveal Blogfest works:

Sign up on the Linky list below, and on March 23rd (Monday) publish a post on your blog in which you reveal your theme, tell us why it is exciting, and give us a hint of what to expect from it! Then, once your post is up, use the Linky to visit all the other blogs announcing their themes. Enjoy!

This is a great opportunity for all of you to get a jump start on your A to Z experience. You can link up with fellow bloggers, scout out and bookmark themes that you look forward to, and set out delicious bait on your blog to lure in wandering participants! This way, by the time the frenzied posting begins on April 1st, you will already have an audience eagerly awaiting your posts.

Sign up below, ready your theme, and post March 23rd on your calendar!


  1. I'll be cheering you all on from the hiatus hidey hole I crawl into every April. :)

  2. We have a lot of people signed up now!
    I'll always go with a theme, especially after that first year without one.

  3. I got my theme all ready. Looking forward to the reveal.

  4. I like a theme. It helps me organize before April. I love to find out more things in depth and this a great opportunity.

  5. I'm going commando...which means no theme for me. :)

  6. Love your thoughts on the theme reveal! I'm still making some last minute decisions with my post planning - and haven't written them yet, but I'm getting ready. :)

  7. I've got all my posts written and mostly edited, for both my blogs. The theme on my secondary blog is one I've been wanting to do for a long time, and the theme for my main blog wasn't something I'd even thought about until I got an idea from my Z post last year.

  8. I'm sharing my duties again this year with the IWSG admins. The thought of doing it alone is a bit overwhelming. I know I should try one year. Maybe next. Thanks, Lisa.

    Getting geared up for A to Z! I have a theme, just need to get writing.

  10. Personally, I think themes make it more fun :-)

  11. I've picked my theme and am all set to go! It will be my first year--can't wait!! :D

  12. My themes are set, but not set in stone. I could change my mind at any time between now and reveal day.

  13. Hi Lisa - I never know why it takes me a year to actually write up my posts, when in May the previous year I've decided on my theme! I'll get there .. and it's fun ... cheers Hilary

  14. I'm looking forward to seeing the variety of the themes :)

    320 people signed up for the Theme reveal ... that's awesome :)

    WOW :)
