DRUM ROLL – #ATOZCHALLENGE -THEME REVEAL 2017

#AtoZChallenge 2017 Theme Reveal is here !!!!

Yipeeee!!! My second year into blogging and my second time in the #AtoZChallenge and I can’t tell you how much i had to convince myself to take this up this year as well. Not that i hate anything about the challenge but more on the other side that is I love the concept of A to Z challenge and being the perfectionist kinda person i am, I wanted to do complete justice with the challenge.

I had my own reasons for being doubtful about it more so because I was not into blogging for the last six months for valid reasons Click here to read I was not sure if I could commit to myself 26 days of continuous writing and that too when i had no theme in my head. And even if i ended up on a theme , alphabets like Q, X and Z alone would make raise the bar of challenge to a whole new level 🙂 I am sure most of you would agree with it. But, i have learnt not to give up and so i wouldn’t this time as well at any cost.

What is the #AToZChallenge about?
Now #AtoZChallenge is all about blogging for 26 days, one day for each alphabet during the April month except for Sundays. It not only helps in networking with many new and old bloggers but you get to learn a lot about yourself while taking up this challenge. Most of us would do a #Reflections post once we “Survive” – yeah that’s what we tell once you finish the challenge. Trust me it seems easy to blog 26 days but when you get into it you fall short of words, you fall short of time, you even fall short of interest. Its not just about writing, you even need to read other blogs which are participating which is essentially the idea behind this challenge.

Does a theme help?
Having a theme is totally up to the participant. While having a theme filters down your ideas about posting it also makes it tough (majority of the times) when it comes to specific alphabets. Many people chose a theme in order to come up with an ebook later on. Some write stories which is good if you have a script in mind; some write poems, some do DIY, some receipes all in all you would find everything under the sky in this blogging world during the challenge.

Theme Reveal
I was certainly wanting to have a Theme as it filters down my random thoughts running all over the place but i ended up banging my head as i would fall short of words for few alphabets and then give up on that idea. Does that happen to you as well ?? (~~ wondering ~~) So today on my way to work i had this Eureka moment of an idea and surprisingly jotting down words for this was the simplest things i have ever done in my blogging life. Sometimes you underestimate the simple pleasures of life.

So let the drums roll while I present to you this years theme of #AtoZChallenge2017 on my blog Life as a Potpourri which is extremely close to my heart and that is 

🙂 🙂 🙂 I am so happy with my theme that you guys have no idea right when the day is about to end here in India. It would be an honor and pleasure to talk about my hometown Andaman and Nicobar Islands where i have been born and brought up with all you people out there. Many of you am sure wouldn’t even have heard the place but just to give a sneak peak here are some facts about #ANDAMANS 

  • It’s one of the Union Territories of India.
  • It’s an archipelago of about 300 islands.
  • It’s has a history related to Indian Independence.
  • The island’s #Radhanagar beach has been rated Asia’s best beach and World’s 8th best beach by Trip Advisor
  • The waters of Andamans have been rated as the 6th best blue waters all over the world
  • It has the only active volcano of India – Barren Island
  • The 26th December, 2004 Tsunami had majorly affected the islands at it was just about 30 mins from Sumatra the origin of the earthquake which measured about 8.9 to 9.1 on Richter scale
  • Your blog friend – Sneha(that’s me) was born in these islands …just kidding, need to save the info for the blog posts ❤

If those details got you glued and thinking then you should definitely check out this blog cause these islands have a lot to offer, only if you ask 🙂 Also i would be using the hashtag #AmazingAndamans  which is the theme as well along with #AndamanswithSneha and #Galfromtheisland

It would be really great if you could give your feedback, comments,suggestions and keep visiting my blog during the April month. Please feel free to connect via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Google +
