Need Some Direction

Just a quick post to ask for a little help. I've decided to do the A-Z Blogging Challenge this year. Starting April 1, I'll be posting every day in April except Sundays. That will give me a total of 26 posts-one for each letter of the alphabet. If you're interested, you can click on the button to the right to read more about the Challenge and sign up.

Here's where I'd like some help. I'm considering a number of different themes for the project, but I'm having trouble making up my mind. Whether you're a regular reader or here for the first time, I would appreciate some feedback. If you would be so kind, let me know which theme sounds the most interesting, or the least boring, as it were, in the comments. Of course, if you have any better ideas, write-ins are definitely welcomed.

1) Random: just go with whatever comes to mind for a particular letter when I sit down to write.

2) Movies: not reviews, but start with a movie title and see where it takes me.

3) Books: same idea as movies.

4) Music: songs, bands, concert venues, anything music related really.

I have another question about the project, but I'll save it until I've picked my theme. Time to get comfortable on the couch for a big night of college hoops. You know I'll be cheering my Badgers on, but I'll be flipping over during commercials to catch some of the Arizona/Duke game too.

  3. Earlier tonight I though about the many erotic words that started with each letter. However, that won't fly in this clean blogosphere. :D

  5. Random and then you can do all of your choices. If that is too "random" for you, choose a different theme from your list each week. Whatever you choose, I look forward to it.

  8. Have to go with the random choice ~ that way you are not beholding to one topic.

    Go Badgers!

  10. I take the random route myself. I believe some others will take books, movies, or music, but it's fun to do some of the same things as others just to see how different they are. I've also found websites for any of these ideas that have alphabetized listings. Have fun.

    And welcome to the Challenge. I've signed up as a follower.

  11. random madness works for me. OK here's a weird thing. pictures are no longer appearing on my blog but the pic I downloaded does appear on your blogroll - so what's that about? Good luck with the challenge.
