After the success of the blogathon (at keeping me entertained, teaching me about two really cool girls and making me think on a daily basis) I was more than keen to get involved when Katy and Fi suggested starting a similar project for 2012. After a few weeks of umming and ahhing we have come up with…the Alphathon!
For the next 26 working days Katy, Fiona (and anyone else who wants to play!) will be writing blogs based on a letter of the alphabet. However not wanting to leave it that ambiguous the three of us have each written a list of potential topics from which we will choose one everyday. Some days we might all choose the same one, some days three entirely different…roll of the dice!
My list of potential topic titles/ideas runs thus:
A – Alphabet soup – describe the other bloggers using only words which start with the same letter as their name.
B -Bad habits
C – Certificate of awesome – make one for yourself
D – Diary of a mobile phone/keys/pen
E – Ever followed a rainbow?
F – Fill in the blanks (story to be provided)
G -Guilty pleasures
H -Happy thoughts – If you met Peter Pan which would you choose?
I -‘If’. Write your own version of the famous poem.
J – Journeys – tell me your most memorable
K – Killing time – How do you do it?
L -Ladles and Jellyspoons – Do you have a favourite poem?
M – Mistakes – good or bad?
N – Never say never, or no way no how?
O – Overcoming challenges
P – People call me ****, explain a nickname!
Q – Quotes – tell us some you use often.
R – Risk taker, are you?
S – Somebody has to say it….
T – Teleport yourself somewhere – where did you go?
U – Unusually, I don’t…(finish this sentence)
V -Victory!!! Tell me about a time you ‘won’.
W – Who inspires you?
X – X marks the spot – blindly point at a map, write a postcard as if you were there!
Y – (A) Year ago today…
Z – Zoooom…we’re in 1998, describe you and your life.
Hopefully the girls will see some in there which inspire them to write some lovely blog posts. Can’t wait to see what they come up with!!
