I'm not sure I can fit in a theme with my already limited subject pool, but if it fits with the letter, I'd do it :-)

Yeah, I probably wouldn't manage both a theme and a religious-themed post per letter... Could attempt the theme on the 'other' letter, though.

Maybe we could have a blogging theme but not necessarily tie it to the alphabet? Like a Cauldron version of the Kemetic Round Table?

That's more of what I thought.
Leaving the alphabet optional, still can do this, picking your topics how you like and additonally having the theme.

Also I think the theme wouldn't be necessarily specific to the path?
As Elani said, some people might have trouble fitting yet another post in, because they don't have such a broad base of stuff to write about available on their path.

I thought a theme could also be more... well philosophical and mundane life related?
Something like: how do you mark new beginnings, due to your belief? Or: do you practice x-y-z in your mundane life, is it inspired by your belief or not?
\'You had to repay, good or bad. There was more than one type of obligation.
That’s what people never really understood.….Things had to balance.
You couldn’t set out to be a good witch or a bad witch. It never worked out for long.
All you could try to be was a witch, as hard as you could.\'

I would be down for this.

I would find it a bit easier than here's the letter for the week.

Although "C" is always for cookie and that's good enough for me.

Ugh, dare I even try? I love the idea of this, but did NOT make it far last year. Grr.

I will do better next year!  This year I started well, but the wheels fell off when life got complicated and I vastly overestimated how much I was actually going to be able to do once I left work.

I've now shut down a lot of stuff (seriously, if you count individual tumblogs I had over a dozen online projects going at one stage) so I can concentrate properly on the ones that matter.  Like the pagan blog.

Speaking of themes, I'm thinking of sticking largely to symbolism in 2014.  It's something I'm comfortable writing about and might have something vaguely useful to share.  There's no point me trying to bust out big, deep, serious stuff because... seriously?  Me?  What the hell do I know that 11,000 more experienced Celtic-flavoured pagans don't know better, in more detail, with more references?

So, yeah.  Symbolism for me next year.

I'm thinking about it, but I don't know if I can get my thoughts together and reigned in enough to actually carry on in a blog...

The Kemetic Round Table is where a group of Kemetic bloggers are given a prompt, and we all weigh in on it.

It's here if you want to have a look.

I've done this for two years now and I think I would like to continue next year, but I want to spice it up a bit and keep it challenging. I'm considering taking some inspiration from Elani and keeping every week on topic to my personal religious path.

What do you guys think? Is anybody else planning to do it again?


I shall attempt it this year. Don't know how far I'll make it.

that actually sounds cool. Though I am not kemetic, if there was one similar to it that would be cool.

I'd be really into giving it a try. I only found out about the 2013 one recently and really liked it (other than a prompt idea given for G being 'gypsy'... what the hell?).

I think that making it more based around concepts than letters would be cooler, too, so I agree what people have said about it. I'd find it easier to come up with something related to Beginnings (using an example given by someone else) than using letters.
