The A to Z of My Sonoran Desert

The Blogging from A to Z Challenge begins in just a few hours.

This will be my 4th year taking part in the challenge. But it will be my first year actually choosing a theme to write about. In the past, I never chose a theme because I don't really think I am an expert at anything. So, I didn't really know what to write about. 

My "theme" for the last 3 years of the challenge has been ALL about Me. But this year I decided I should write about something else, because there is just so much that I can write about myself before it starts to get really really weird.

So, my theme for this year's A to Z Challenge will be... All about the Sonoran Desert.

I was born in the desert and raised here so I have to know something, right? But because I am me, my posts will be more like My Sonoran Desert.

Blogging from A to Z

I can't believe that I am doing this AGAIN!!

I signed up at the beginning of the year, but I have been on the fence about actually participating. I have enjoyed the challenge for 3-years now, but there was something about last year that made me feel like I just couldn't do it again.

The first year I did the challenge (2011) I had a blast. I wrote my posts by the seat of my pants and had a great time visiting other blogs and responding to comments (both on other blogs and on my own).

The next year I participated (2013) I planned out my posts a bit more. There was a lot of activity at the beginning of the challenge but it sort of petered out towards the end of the month. Even so, I still enjoyed the challenge enough to want to do it again the following year.

Last year (2014) had the largest amount of people participating in the challenge but I noticed very few people visiting my blog, much less leaving comments. From what I could tell this seemed to be happening just on my own blog though because I saw lots of comments on other blogs when I was visiting other challengers from the list. I didn't find 2014 to be as much fun as previous years. I decided then that I probably wouldn't participate in the next year's challenge.

But then I read the sign-up post for this year. And for some unknown reason I put my name on that list.

I think I may actually have a theme this year. I am starting to get a little bit excited about it all. April will soon be here. Oh boy, what have I done?
