My A – Z Challenge Calendar

test_calendar2I have laid out my April A – Z Challenge posts using a calendar. My over all theme will be, as usual, my family history. I have a mix of Individuals who I will profile, names and careers that I will trace through the family, a family mystery and my kindergarten career. On Sundays I will do the Sepia Saturday challenge a day late.

Although I have my month planned out, I have not written any of the posts ahead of time. I may get a few done but probably I will be writing and posting as I go along. Of course I will visit other blogs to see the different ways the challenge is handled.

    I love your theme! I’m a genealogy buff myself, though I’m not sure I’d be able to come up with an ancestor or relative for every letter of the alphabet.

    • Kristin says:

      I probably could, except for X, but I’m doing some other family history related posts that don’t involve individual names, too.

  9. It looks like it will be a buy but fun month! I’m looking forward to reading. Love the calendar plus pics.

  10. Mina Lobo says:

    That’s a lovely way to pay tribute to those who came before you. I’m in similar shoes: I’ve picked something for every letter but have yet to get writing! :-)

  11. Interesting topic you have chosen.

  12. Sharon says:

    I look forward to reading your posts Kristin

    I do like (and admire) your approach. The great delight of blogging is that you can use challenges and memes as a framework for pursuing your own interests. I always enjoy your posts and with your writing YOUR family becomes our family. I look forward to what is to come in April.

    • Kristin says:

      That’s just the way I use them and I’ve found that the meme’s give me a chance to explore bits of family history or my own history, that I might not have thought of doing otherwise. That’s why I enjoy Sepia Saturday so much.

  14. This looks fun! Have a good time with it and I look forward to reading your posts.
