A- Z Challenge 2017 Theme Reveal

During the month of April, the A-Z world wide blogging challenge involves bloggers posting using a letter of the alphabet for each consecutive day except Sundays. Last year on my Library Currants blog I wrote about mobile apps each day in April. Here’s a summary post of all those apps reviewed in April 2016.

This year I’m taking a family history focus, recalling My memories of life on the farm in the nineteen fifties and sixties.

Memories fade with time so best to get them down in writing before age or misfortune overtakes. Last year Maureen over at Exploring Family posted her experiences of a rural childhood which inspired me to look back too.

Some stories will be personal, some just fun and memories – short and sweet so I can keep up the pace.  All posts will  be subject to editing as my siblings may have different versions of events or more exact detail. I’ll do my best to report life as I remember with a few diversions in time along the way. Indeed they were Earlier Years.

Come along for the ride, How much do you remember from your childhood? Your comments and memories are welcome too.

  4. I had a similar theme last year, "Memories of a Rural Childhood".
    Finding topics for each letter was a challenge, but it really forced me to remember and record stories of a different way of life. I hope that you also find the process valuable this year.

    1. Ah Maureen, I should have credited you with the idea, I knew I got it from somewhere! Now edited and credited. I thoroughly enjoyed all your posts last year and it inspired me to do the same. I've been compiling a list throughout the year to help keep me on track.

  5. I'm looking forward to your posts. I have been so busy at work in April so I decided to opt out. Annoying however better than stressing out and spreading myself too thin.
