2021 A to Z Blogging Challenge Recap

In April, I participated in the A to Z Blogging Challenge again. This year I opted to highlight women writers. I thought I’d share the list so you wouldn’t miss out on this amazing list of ladies who have taken up the challenge of the mighty pen if you don’t follow me at Content Creative. I hope you enjoy the recommendations. I know I did! There are a wide variety of genres represented in this list. I added a few more books to my to-read pile, and reviewed some others.

2021 A to Z Blogging Challenge Theme Reveal and Open Invitation to Female Authors and Illustrators

#AtoZChallenge 2021 Theme Reveal

Last year being what it was, I didn’t participate in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. This year, however, I’d thought I’d take up the gauntlet once again. I will be featuring 26 female authors and illustrators on my blog in April. 

I have a few lined up, but I’d also like to make an open invitation. If you (or someone you know) falls into the category of female author or illustrator and would be interested in being featured next month, use the contact form below and I’ll send you more information. 

At the end of the month, I’ll post the complete list on Surviving Mexico or you can follow along daily at

Happy Blogging!

The History of Moroleon for Kids in Paperback and Other End-of-year Improvements

The History of Moroleon for Kids is finally available in coloring book format! It took forever and a day because I had such a hard time formatting it. However, that long editing process resulted in uncovering more information about Moroleon, Guanajuato and the inclusion of some activities in addition to the coloring pages. 

There’s a delay between when I publish a book and when it’s available to be shipped to Mexico, so I haven’t received my proof copies yet. That makes me a bit nervous to announce its availability since I haven’t seen the final version, but online anyway, the book looks fine. 

In other news, I’ve redone Surviving Mexico’s home page. If you haven’t taken a look at it lately because you get your update from me delivered directly to your inbox, you should! I’ve tried to make the site easier to navigate with the dropdown menus but I’m sure I’ll probably keep tweaking things as I go along since there’s a learning curve to all this technical stuff. 

I’ve added an About the Author page with an interview with me! The About Our Lives page now has the video my son made a few years ago about La Yacata. That was fun to rewatch.

Anyway, these items were the last of my yearly Improvements. Stay tuned for a recap of how my 2020 goals panned out (or didn’t).
