A-Z Challenge Theme Reveal Day!

Hi! Welcome to my blog and welcome to the A-Z Challenge Theme Reveal Day!

My name is Melanie Crouse. I'm a blogger, a writer of young adult fantasy, a gifted and talented teacher, a pianist, a wife and a mother, not necessarily in that order of importance. 

I've been researching for this A-Z challenge all year long. When I chose my topic I thought I would fill up the letters pretty easily, but it ended up taking a lot longer than I'd realized to fill up about half of the letters. I think you'll be pleased with the quality of my choices though. I know I am!

Without further A-Z theme is...


I listen to some great podcasts, and I've found some amazing new ones as well. My podcasts topics run the gamut, from health and science to parenting to writing to reading to self-help to comedy to religion and more! There is something for everyone. If you  listen to a great podcast, I'd love to hear from you down in the comments. Who knows, maybe your podcast will end up on my list!


  1. You know, I have never listened to a podcast? I look forward to being introduced to some! Thanks for stopping by True North Bricks.

  2. Yay! I love listening to podcasts, in fact they've pretty much replaced TV for me, besides a few shows I stream online. I'll be following and hopefully I'll find some new ones!

  3. I listen to few football and wrestling related podcasts, but there are just too many of them these days. Hope to know about few good ones. All the best.

  4. I love your theme. I did a post last year on ten Maine based podcasts. There are so many interesting podcasts out there. WeekendsInMaine

  5. Oh my gosh! What an interesting topic! I would never have imagined that in a million years. Good luck, Melanie! Hope you fill the rest of those letters up fast! :D And thanks for stopping by Promptlings!

  6. Oh, that's cool! I've been thinking of sampling some podcasts, since I don't always want to listen to audiobooks on my walk. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

  7. I haven't listened to a podcast for years. I used to a lot when I was travelling for work. Now I don't do anything when I just stop to listen, including audiobooks. It'll be good to see what you come up with, though. Good luck!

  8. I love podcasts! I'm always looking for new ones. Can't wait to read about your choices. Here were mine from 2017:

  9. I am new to the world of potcasts so I look forward to your theme for the blog challenge. I don't find a place to sign up to FOLLOW your blog throughout the challenge. Perhaps you would let me know about this. My theme this year is Bookstores - a tour of architecture, location, and the wonderful world of books. I hope you have time to visit.
