A to Z Challenge 2020 – Theme Reveal
As it is the last day of March (at least it is here for another couple of hours), I thought I’d better rush and do the theme reveal for my 2020 A to Z challenge! I have done the challenge before, but on another blog of mine, one that solely focuses on mental health. And I found it quite challenging.
I usually don’t have an issue with writing and publishing posts every day. Although it might not always seem that way, I am quite an organized blogger, and I often plan my posts ahead of time, checking different memes and prompts, constantly writing down ideas. I even have a notebook (one out of paper, not a tiny laptop thing) that I use for just that: scribbling down ideas and planning things like blogposts, taking pictures, projects, pitches and so on. I didn’t have all that last year. So I am way more organized!
But what I think I most likely did wrong last year, apart from not being organized enough, was that I picked a theme that was too big. Each post ended up taking hours of research and I had to write over 2000 words every day. I am surprised I even managed to finish the challenge, late or not! And this year I don’t want to pause all my other blogging activity because I focus on one challenge. But after some thought, and some detailed planning, I think I can get it done!
So I am doing the A to Z challenge this year! If you don’t know what that is, click here! It is a huge project for bloggers of all genres, where you publish a post a day, and the topic of the post needs to start with the letter of the day. So day one is A, day two is B and so on. And it is easier to do so when you have a theme! My ambitious approach last year was to educate others about different mental illnesses, to spread knowledge and information. This year, my posts will be more personal, more reflective, and will definitely not take hours to write!
My theme this year is BODY LOVE
I have struggled with my body image, my sexuality and accepting my needs for as long as I can remember. I have been fat shamed, I have fat shamed myself. There are so many parts of my body that I still have difficulty looking at, and a lot of times, I am not even able to connect to physical sensations. So I want to explore that this month. I am going to express thoughts and feelings around my different body parts, my sexuality and the way I look at it all. There are going to be appreciative posts, and those that show that I still struggle with accepting all of me. And I am going to talk about pleasure, sex, self-care, masturbation, perspectives, gender identities and how I look at other bodies. It is going to be a month of self-exploration!
