I saw a tag on Twitter — #AZApril — with people linking to blogposts. I didn’t really follow it up though to start with but it gave me what I thought was a fun idea (until I started) of doing a kind of personal A-Z of influences and interests Buzzfeed ‘listicle’ style ☺
So this post is loosely inspired by the A-Z April challenge but for better or worse is something quite different now…and more than a little self indulgent!
