The Big A to Z Reveal Bloghop

Did you see the new banners in the sidebar? Are you shocked that a once a week blogger is attempting the A to Z challenge? Well, I am too:D
Now I know you just read The Big Reveal, but I'm cheating a bit. Below is a teaser of the 4 different options I considered (at least seriously) this past month. In the comments guess which one will be my theme for the....

1. Publishing Houses from Arthur A. Levine to Zondervan. Demystifying the many imprints of the big 5 and other big players in the publishing world.
Why I chose: because all these publishing houses and bazillion imprints were a complete mystery to me not so long ago (and at this point they still are to some degree) and maybe some of you are confused as well. Is Hyperion part of the big 5? Is Roaring Book Press an imprint of Penguin? With all these mergers who are the big players today?

2. Grammar A to Z from adverbs to your vs. you're (still working on a Z). Not that I'm Grammar Girl or will ever have her excitement for studying the English language, but I would link to her:D
Why I chose: One of my 2013 goals is to write cleaner. I thought that other writers might also be interested in learning grammar on a non-boring (read funny or at least ridiculous level).

3. Favorite Reads from Anna and the French Kiss to Zombies vs. Unicorns.
Why I chose-My favorite A to Z of last year was Kate Scott and her 5 daily recommendations in categories from Adventure to Zoink. Many of my 2012 reads came from her top picks, so in wanting to have a theme that others would be interested in, I thought it might be a winner. Besides, I LOVE talking about books.

4. Interviews of writer friends from my sister Amanda to Sara Zarr (okay, she's not my friend (yet), but if I'm lucky, maybe she'll answer a question or 2.) The plan, if I donn't know a writer with the letter, I would open it up on twitter and if i don't get any takers, I'd find information about my favorite writers (under that letter, of course) and share that.
Why I chose-Because I enjoy learning about other writers, making connections, and realizing I'm not the only crazy writer out there. Also, this would guarantee at least 1 reader per day since *hopefully* they would check out their posts.

Okay, now to decide, which one am I doing? Let me know in the comments.
Also, which one are you most interested in and why? (Not that it will change my choice, but maybe next year :D )

  4. I think I would pick Grammar if it were me. However, when it was me, I went in a different direction completely.
