A to Z Challenge [Letter Schedule] [2015]Okay, this is it, my theme reveal for the Blogging A to Z Challenge 2015. I think I spent more time trying to decide on a title, than I did writing an outline for the posts. I could churn out a two thousand word essay on the subject, but a title. Nothing, nada, diddly-squat. So, because I don’t want to be accused of stalling, I’m calling the theme my A to Z Fantasy Squad – A Creature Feature. Try fitting that into a discernible hashtag…on second thoughts, don’t, because you’d probably do a much better job! *Note to self; next time ask Diana.* I swear, titles are my kryptonite.

I will be exploring mythical and fantasy creatures in media, which includes; literature, film and television. For each member of my fantasy squad, I will compare different interpretations and share these findings with you!

Most of my research is done, so all I need to do now is prepare the posts and the fun can begin 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing you on the road from A to Z.

Open to suggestions

I’ve been thinking about increasing traffic to the site, and adding the type of content readers want to see. As a relatively new blog that’s not always easy, and as Laura and I both have a personal site as well, it’s an even bigger challenge.

I’m not sure what you think, Laura, but the theme is a little uninspiring. It’s clean and well organised, but does it grab you by the throat – that’s a no for me!

Do you have any suggestions/comments on the current theme or layout? Both Laura and I welcome feedback, and the advice of experienced bloggers. Do you have any tips for us; the things we should be doing with the joint site that we might have overlooked?

One of the suggestions I read online was to host a guest blog. This sounds intriguing, but also a tad complicated, but like I said, we’re open to possibilities.

I’ve utilised the poll button for this post – I wanted to see what would happen, and determine if it’s a useful tool. Forgive my experimentation with the feature.

We look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Thanks in advance
