I am pleased to say that I completed my second year of the A-Z Blog Challenge. This year, I chose to share “My Lifeblood Songs”. These meaningful songs focused heavily on lyrics.
Some of my songs dealt with memories, moments in time that shaped me. Some songs shared my beliefs or feelings. But, all of my song choices shared part of me. I shed many tears choosing and preparing my posts to share here. Sometimes the tears were joyful, sometimes they came from a place of pain.
Words are important to me, as they offer connections and can be empowering. It is why I write constantly, in poetry, stories, and in so many journals. Music often brings words to life. I often say that my life has a soundtrack because it does. I am not a musician, but music has always been a part of who I am. I believe many people connect with music because it is universal.
I am already contemplating next year’s A-Z Blog Challenge. I have a theme that will take a year to pull together. But, I really want to do it. I like the focus and discipline that this challenge takes. I like to meet like-minded people and hope to meet more. I will be going back through the posts to read, visit, and hopefully meet more bloggers to connect with. It would help to know the genre of the blog because there are so many listed. Perhaps we should list our genre next to our blog name at sign up each day.
I would also like to thank the hosts of the A-Z Blog Challenge. You guys rock.
