My AtoZ blogging challenge reveal 2021 #AtoZChallenge

Mar 8, 2021 | AtoZ challenge 2021, About D Kai Wilson-Viola, Announcements | 9 comments

I take part in the Blogging from AtoZ Challenge every year. I have several of them that I’m taking part in this year, but the main one, the A to Z of me will introduce a lot of the things that are important to me.
Unlike other times I’ve done this challenge, I’m thinking about whether to do short (letter is for) posts as seperate, small entries, or having an overall post and breaking out into it in more detail in the next few weeks and months.
Any days that I can’t find something to talk about, I’ll either do a poem, a flash fiction piece, or something else.

I’m not revealing all of my posts right now, but just to give you guys a taster, and whether you’d like to give me some thoughts.

A is for Alt-worlds.
B is for Books
C is for Cats /CPTSD

M is for Mindfulness/Meditation/Morrigan
P is for psychosis

ZZZ is for sleep disorders

If I were doing a post on any of the ones that have more than one category, would you prefer, do you think, a different post for each concept, or all in one?


  1. Iain Kelly

    Interesting idea, look forward to it. I would suggest an all in one post, as there are so many A to Z posts to try and read!

  2. Lisa

    One concept, and one post for each. That’s not what you asked, but it’s what would make the most sense to me. Otherwise it might be a mishmash of unrelated things starting with the same letter. Maybe all 26 about cats or sleep disorders… or… or the Morrigan and other goddesses! I wrote a poem called The Morrigan not long ago.

      Oh, Morri is a character in one of my books. I do a lot of different things, and work in mental health advocacy. I also spend a lot of time studying – I work on AI and forensic linguistics, so I’m not sure if I should go for A-Z basics here and do a separate A-Z on my books, or do a couple. Food for thought for sure.
      Your poem sounds cool!
      Also, I am sorta going one concept, one post – but I’m running multiple blogs now 😉 It’ll be a blast.

    Looking forward to see what you decide, and to getting to know more about you.

      So far, it’s looking like the AtoZ of Me will be about a main overall topic, and I’m running three other blogs (maybe more). One on mental health, one random tarot card draws, one fiction one around fairytales of some sort and…I’m thinking. I’ll be watching your blog with interest too! Thanks for stopping by!

    That sounds like a lot of fun! Looking forward to learning more about your “alt-worlds” and more!

    It’s been my experience that people want short and simple as they are trying to visit a lot of blogs each day as well as do their own posts. Since my blog has multiple writers I’ve decided to do the challenge on Instagram and attempt to improve my microblogging. I’m keeping it simple too as its a hectic time at work.

    I’d say go with your creative mind. Let it roam.

P is for Psychosis #realmentalhealth #mondayblogs #nomorestigma

This is one of my harder blog posts to write, because though I talk – a lot – about the impact my mental health has on my day to day life, and has done for a while, I’m pretty sure that this is the bit no one really understands, causes the most…misunderstanding and I hope, because I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, they can’t relate to. If you didn’t know that psychosis was a feature of my mental health diagnosis, or didn’t understand if you’d heard it mentioned before now, please…don’t start changing your opinion of me. That’s the biggest reason those of us with serious mental health issues aren’t as open as society needs. Because we lose people.
