A TO Z CHALLENGE THEME REVEAL!!
Step right up, ladies and gents, for my A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal! Of course, if you follow my blog, my theme will come as no surprise because I've already kind of announced it: MY SUPER-SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY. Because I'm a history geek, and because a long time ago I adopted the Sixteenth Century as my century, and because I thought it would be cool to do my April posts about 26 interesting-but-not-hugely-famous people who each spent at least a significant portion of his or her life in the years between 1500 and 1599. But even if my theme doesn't come as a total surprise, I still have more to say about it than I did when I'd first thought it up, because now I've already written 10 of my 26 posts (and I hope to finish at least a few more before April 1st) so now I know for a fact how fascinating some of these people really were. Just by way of example, I'll be bringing you: a real-life pirate queen; a brilliant surgeon; an architect; a mapmaker; an Italian missionary to China; a midwife; and the man who was probably the first violin-maker in the Western world. You won't want to miss this, folks. Prepare to be
AMAZED!! DELIGHTED!! and ENLIGHTENED!!!
and, unlike Mr. Barnum over here, I'm not going to be making ANY of it up! I hope to see you in April.
