In April of 2015 I took part in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. For the entirety of April I published a blog post once a day with the exception of Sundays, twenty six posts in total, one for each letter of the alphabet. I toyed around with a few different ideas for themes but ultimately decided to stick with my first love of Scottish mythology and folklore. If that’s not your thing, 1508 other people signed up to do the challenge so you’re bound to find something that interests you in there. 

I tackled a range of subjects with my twenty six posts, from mythical beasts and heroes and heroines to interesting historical bits and bobs and my own retellings of Scottish folk and fairy tales. There was even some tartan thrown in there as well – any excuse!
