It's officially 2016, which means, it's time to gear up for the April A to Z Blogging Challenge!
26 Ways to Die in Medieval Hungary" - was super fun (and also fairly popular), I am definitely doing another MopDog challenge this year. The only question is: What will my theme be this time?
Since it is fairly early yet, and I have time to plan and ponder, I wanted to post my ideas, and ask for your input.
Here we go!
"26 Ways Hungarian History is like Game of Thrones"
Exactly what it sounds like. More wacky Hungarian history tidbits. Now with a GoT flavor.
Pros: GoT + Hungarian history
"26 Lessons You Learn from Hungarian Cartoons"
Each post introduces a beloved (and, to foreign eyes, no doubt strange) Hungarian children's cartoon, and draws an important life lesson from it.
Pros: It introduces amazing Hungarian animation to a wider audience. Also, supplies a whole lot of useful phrases, like this one.
Cons: Most cartoons are not available with subs/dubs. Although maybe this would put the call out to the Universe.
"26 Flavors of Fake Hungarian History"
Each post introduces a crazy theory about the (much debated) origin and early history of the Hungarians - from sources that actually claim to be scientific and have been published on paper. Includes puli dogs from Mars, and Hungarians building the pyramids.
Cons: I don't know how appealing this is to non-Hungarian audiences.
"26 Hungarian Saints (?)"
Saints, Blesseds, and Honorable Mentions produced by Hungarian history. With all their not-so-saintly laundry.
Pros: We have some fun ones (I grew up Catholic, saints are out main form of entertainment)
Cons: I'd have to finagle quite a few (8-9) of the letters.
"26 Badass Hungarian Women"
For the feminist in your life who wants to have an international perspective.
Pros: Women's history!
Cons: Again, not sure about the international appeal. Also, needs some serious research.
NOTE: If you have any other ideas for Hungary-related themes that you'd enjoy reading, let me know! Just... for the love of God, please don't make me do recipes.
