#AtoZChallenge Theme Reveal 2017: Happiness @AprilA2Z @BlogChatter

And it is time for the madness to begin again... the April A to Z Challenge!

[Drumrolls]



If you don't know what this challenge is about, read the post A-to-Z.

In 2015, I joined in at the very last minute, with my series on A to Z of Blogging. I intended to turn that series into a kindle ebook, and, after procrastinating on it for a whole year, I finally managed to do that before the April A to Z last year!

Please check it out on Amazon Kindle! You'll surely find it useful if you're into blogging. Alternatively, you can also find the entire series right here on this blog, at the link given in the above paragraph.


A to Z of Blogging: Buy from Amazon

So what's in store this year?



Actually, this year, I'm going to complete the series I started last year, i.e. in 2016.

As many of you might remember, I injured my shoulder last year, and couldn't continue beyond 'E', with all those extensive physiotherapy sessions multiple times a day.

So revealing the theme once again, albeit two days late...

This year's series is going to be on the A to Z of "Happiness".


"2017 A-to-Z: Happiness"



That's the whole point of living, isn't it? To be happy. And happiness is nothing but a state of mind. So how do we achieve that state of mind? What do we do that puts our mind in the state of happiness?

This is what this year's A to Z is going to be about.

I sure hope to complete it this time! I mean I've already got the first five posts written! Only 21 more to go! Seems doable. And hopefully, I'll get another ebook at the end of it.

To my fellow participants...

All the best, bloggers! Let's pace ourselves, so we don't burnout midway into the challenge. And let's all have fun!

As usual, I will be updating this space with links to each day's post as I complete them. So stay tuned.

Sounds interesting...looking forward to reading your posts. I've decided to not participate this year around --- too much going on, not enough time, lost my mojo. But will follow everyone else :)

A couple years ago a friend did a similar theme and I loved it so much. It was nice reading something uplifting every day. Great theme. =)

Shilpa Garg said...

Aha! we are working on similar themes. It would be interesting to compare our ingredients of happiness from A to Z. Looking forward to your reflective posts, Kadambari :) Good luck!

Nibhz said...

Tamara Narayan said...

Happiness. Seems simple, but can be so elusive. Too tempting to put limits on ourselves and think, "I would be happy only if . . ." Great idea for the challenge.

Chicky Kadambari said...

Thanks Elizabeth!

Hi Chicky - should be a brilliant A-Z - especially with quotes attached ... I enjoyed the Lennon one ...

I see you put your 2015 posts into a book form - that's brilliant .. so well done ...

Thanks for visiting and good to meet you .. cheers Hilary

The Solitary Writer said...

I have read almost 70% of your April 2015 blog posts and I should say that it was indeed useful to me. And I was thinking that you would be posting something similar this year too but glad you have some different dish to offer to your readers. I will be back soon:D

Claire Annette said...

Hi Chicky - what a great topic! I love the quote by John Lennon. I'll be following you to see what you come up with for each letter.

Richa Singh said...

Great to see such a joyful theme. Will be hopping along through the month to read more of you here :)

Chicky Kadambari said...

Hi Hilary! Thanks for dropping by! Yes, I finally managed to get the ebook out on kindle.

Chicky Kadambari said...

Oh Ste, last year's A to Z was a diversion from my usual blog content. I don't normally write about blogging here. See you around...

Chicky Kadambari said...

I love it too, Claire! At the moment, it doesn't look like I'll be participating after all though! :(

Chicky Kadambari said...

Hey Richa! Thanks for dropping by. I guess you might have to wait for the next year though, to read my posts on this theme.

Melissa Sugar said...

What an inspirational post. Happiness seems like such a simple concept, but it's rather complex. People make it more complicated than it is because happiness is what you make of it. I think it's a choice unless a person suffers from depression or some medical condition that makes happiness seem harder to achieve. I'm really looking forward reading your posts. I'm super excited that you accomplished your goal and published your e-book. I'm headed over now to check it out. I will be on the road all day tomorrow, but I'll do my best to catch your A post. If not , I will catch up on Saturday

Chicky Kadambari said...

Thanks Melissa! You said it! And you know, I had withdrawn my name from the challenge yesterday, but then I got this beautifully encouraging comment from you, and I signed up once again! So thank you for that!
-XOXO

Suzy said...

An uplifting theme. Will look forward to some happy inspiration each day.

the little princess said...

Great! The start to last year's theme was wonderful and it's a good idea to complete that! who knows yo'll have another book ready by the time you finish this one! I'm in too!! Let's do this together!

Chicky Kadambari said...

Thank you, Sulekkha!
