April 2016 Blog Challenge: Ancestors From A to Z

Molly’s Canopy will feature daily posts on Ancestors From A to Z, one letter per day, during the April 2016 Blogging From A to Z Challenge. Wish me luck and please join me on the journey!

Later this month marks the Second Blogiversary of Molly’s Canopy, the family history blog where I have shared my ancestors’ stories, beginning with my Union Army ancestor Arthur Bull.A2Z-BADGE [2016]

To celebrate two years as a genealogy blogger, I decided to shake things up and accept the Blogging From A to Z Challenge to see if I can write daily about my ancestors throughout the month of April 2016 — one letter of the alphabet per day with Sundays off.

Because this is my first Blogging From A to Z Challenge, I missed the the earlier deadline for the Theme Reveal. But I still plan to write short, daily blog posts on the theme Ancestors From A to Z.

New format, new inspiration

Typically, blog posts on Molly’s Canopy unfold in a serial format that tells interconnected stories about a particular ancestor or family and historic events, geographical locations or occupations that influenced their lives — as revealed by my family history research.

The Blogging From A to Z Challenge will let me try a new approach — shorter, less connected posts and a chance to highlight ancestors and side-line relatives who don’t fit into the longer, serial format.

More than 1,700 bloggers are signed up so far! So visiting and commenting on other A to Z Challenge blogs during the month will also help me connect with fellow bloggers and get inspired by fresh ideas for the future.

At midnight tonight the fun begins! Wish me luck and please join me on the journey.
