An A-Z Journey through the Challenge: Y

As we may have mentioned once or twice ;), we’re both great fans of April’s A-Z Blogging Challenge. Set up by Arlee Bird back in 2009, it’s grown like topsy since that time. As neither David nor I are able to participate again this year, we decided instead to highlight one (or more) blogs each day, to encourage you to visit, to make new friends, and to find some entertainment during the current crazy world we’re in.

Some of these highlights will be old friends we’ve made during previous challenges, but some will be new. We don’t plan to stick to any theme other than maintaining a (possibly tenuous) connection to the letter of the day.

We’re on the home stretch now with today’s letter – Y

A reminder that you can find participants via the Master List, but in order not to miss any of April’s blogging riches, you may also seek participants via the hashtags #AtoZChallenge and #A2ZChallenge on Twitter.

For today, I’d like to add:

How Would You Know – a little bit of a cheat this one, but the letter Y does appear in the Blog’s name 🙂  This year’s Challenge sees the return to blogging of Frewin55 after 7 years. Like my first Challenge, he leapt straight in on 1st April without knowing about the potential for themes. Nevertheless, a couple of posts in, a theme emerged organically – that of both personal and societal responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. Among the subjects covered are the more heavyweight examinations of Blogging and why we do it, and whether Death gives meaning to life, as well as the lighter-weight topics of the role Music is playing in our Covid-19 experience, and Sugar – a word association game with a musical theme. In all honesty, it doesn’t feel right for us to complete 2020’s Challenge without visiting a blog taking a closer look at Covid-19, and this one is a fine example.

If you’re catching up, here’s our previous highlights …
