#AToZChallenge 2016 Theme Reveal time!

Jai Bajrangbali! Hallelujah! Talk about last minute decisions...I seem to be becoming a pro at them! 
Well folks, I am proud to present my theme for the #AToZChallenge April 2016 as:

***DRUM ROLLS****



“Home &Interiors”

(In brief the #AToZChallenge is a daily blogging challenge where you blog every day of the month except Sundays, based on a theme and corresponding to the sequential letters of the alphabet)
This theme should actually have been a no-brainer for me, but still I decided on it only a couple of days ago! You know how it is....when something is well within your reach, it is the last thing you will think of!

After pursuing a certified course in Interior Design and Decoration, I practiced for several years as an Interior Designer both with an architectural firm and as a free-lancer, primarily focusing on residential interiors.
Currently I have taken a backseat from active field work to devote my energies to home and also to explore and enjoy other passions like art and writing.

Join me on my journey through the month of April on an exciting roller-coaster ride of the A to Z Challenge as each day I take up a new topic relating to my theme of Home & Interiors.

I'll be sharing my insights, tips and tricks on various aspects of interiors, aesthetics and decor that will definitely help those on the lookout for ideas and hacks on the same.

The world of Interior Design and Creative ideas beckons you this April....

Only at Relax-N-Rave!!

Why I am taking up the #AtoZChallenge?



This is a question that I have been asking myself and in turn one that many of my friends in the blogging world are asking me! Especially since I enrolled my name in the list pretty late, second week of March (I am signed up as Relax-N-Rave: No 1047)! What pushed me to do that, especially this late?

Well, I had been hearing a lot about this challenge since quite some time, but never gave it further thought after I learned it was to be month-long daily posting challenge. 

Given the fact that I have never published more than two posts a week, I consider/ed it to be a next to impossible task for me to pull off!

Believe it or not I signed up for the challenge on an impulse when all I could see and hear around me was A to Z on Twitter and Facebook.

The buzz and the excitement surrounding this challenge is tremendous and mighty contagious I tell you....how else do I explain my decision, especially when I had no intention to pursue it in the first place!

As typical of me, jump first, think later....I signed up and only later ventured to check out the rules! Not sure all of 'em have registered with someone so rule-allergic as me!

The theme reveal has to happen on March 21st...gee, I am not sure I want to take up a theme!
Folks are talking about pre-scheduling posts, many have in fact already written all the posts and waiting for the gunshot to go off on April 1st!

Some wonderful platforms for bloggers are helping out many like me at sea with their insightful and helpful tips and tricks with their past experiences with the Challenge to help us tide through the exciting month of Apr'16! Thanks people!

Folks wish me luck to persevere and pull this off! 

Fingers crossed, pounding heart, AToZ here I come!
