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.

  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.

    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.
