Unsolved Mysteries from A to Z

Today is a big, big day in the blogosphere. More than 1,500 people have signed up to participate in the A to Z Challenge.




And today is the day we all get to reveal our themes.




Each year, I choose a topic that I consider interesting. After all, this is something we'll be writing about for an entire month. This month, I chose something that innately fascinates me...

Ready?

Here it is...




No, not the late-1900s TV show--although the theme is similar to the stories Robert Stack introduced every week. 



All month, I will be sharing my fascination with unsolved mysteries. From missing persons to strange historic phenomena--hopefully you'll find it as fascinating as I do.



The fun will begin April 1st. If you don't know what A to Z is, I highly recommend it. I made so many great friends last year. Sign up here.

  4. Good theme... I didn't know I was supposed to have an 'introduction" post as I have already introduced my theme.

    1. Sage, today is theme reveal today--there's a sign-up list, but I don't think you have to reveal your team. Only a small percentage of people who participate actually do theme reveal day. Just another day to get more people to read your blog, since I personally go through and find new blogs to read from the list.

    1. I do, too. Disappeared was one of my favorite series ever. I was so disappointed they ended it.

  14. You chose a fascinating subject for sure. For some these unsolved mysteries are still tormenting them. I'll be waiting for your daily listing.

    Some people start writing a long time ahead so they won't get behind.

    1. I write a month ahead always...I'm on R now! And yes, it's tough to write about these subjects because while they're fascinating to us, they mean heartbreak to families.

  65. I do, I do ... I find it as fascinating as you do. OMG, I do. I'm so intrigued I might just camp out here right now and not leave, LOL. I'm so obsessed with unsolved mysteries, all of them, including the television show that was hosted by Walsh. You can count on me reading every single one of your posts. I'm an avid mystery fan and unsolved mysteries really fascinate me. As a prosecutor, I was obsessed with cold cases that had been closed for decades. Just reading your theme reveal makes me wish tomorrow was April 1st. I'm so eager to get started with your posts.
    I'm number 244 on the theme reveal list if you get a chance to stop by. I will see you in April.

  66. Unsolved mysteries is a very interesting topic! Looking forward to your posts...

    I always got spooked by Robert Stack's voice, so I never watched the series. There was just something so unnerving about it to me. Just looking at his pic sent shivers up my spine. Weird, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Cool theme. This one takes some research, but it should be facinating. Good luck to you!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I am going to love this theme! Looking forward to this and hey, you may be responsible for one or two cases being solved.

  69. Awesome theme! I'm curious about that too!

  70. J here, stopping by from the #atozchallenge - where I am part of Arlee Bird's A to Z Ambassador Team.
    Excellent choice for an A to Z challenge theme. Good job. My theme is the craft of fiction writing. Tips, lessons, and prompts from various writing reference books. I follow it up with a sample of my work.
    Your theme made me hear that guy's voice in my head. Ha ha. Looking forward to these!
    April should be exciting. I'm looking forward to the event. Best of luck to us both on meeting our goals of posting and hopping to other blogs.
    My blog has a giveaway. There's a bonus a to z challenge each day to encourage people to visit more stops.

  72. I love this subject, and will make a point to visit your blog every day. On an unrelated note, Unsolved Mysteries was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. Like 5 or 6. No, I don't know what my parents were thinking. :D
