F for Facebook | A to Z Challenge

badge

Facebook is my choice for F, for today’s #AtoZChallenge, for the theme ‘Brands that people identify with’. Obvious, isn’t it?

Launched in 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg with his college fellows, the website, initially meant for use by Harvard students, was later expanded to students at other universities and high schools, and then to the employees of companies, including Apple Inc. and Microsoft.

Starting from September, 2006, Facebook was opened to everyone at least 13 years old with a valid email address.

D for Danone | A To Z Challenge

badge

While Disney is the perhaps the best known brand, starting with D, but my pick for today’s  #AtoZChallenge for the theme ‘Brands that people identify with’, is Danone, as its healthy food products find their way into our homes.

In 1919, Isaac Carasso, started a small yogurt business in  Barcelona, Spain and named it “Danone,” meaning “Little Daniel” after his son. Carasso came from the Balkans, where yogurt was a dietary staple; and so he decided to introduce this healthy product in Barcelona.

This iconic brand, which is sold in over 200 different countries, was launched way back in 1886 in Atlanta, Georgia!

I am taking up the A To Z Challenge

badge

Having read a lot about the merits of a self- hosted blog over a wordpress.com blog, over the last few days I was in two minds whether to move my blog Scribble and Scrawl to a self- hosted blog or to stay put. Finally, after some deliberation, I decided against moving from wordpress.com to wordpress.org, at least for now.

But then, bitten by the blogging bug and ever ready to explore new options, I could not entirely rule out the option of starting a new self-hosted wordpress blog.

So, today when I read fellow blogger Ruby Singh’s post on participating in the A to Z Challenge, it suddenly occurred to me what could be a better way to start this new blog Life11, than to take up a challenge right at the onset.

So here I am, taking up the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Since the blog is all about celebrating Life, the category obviously is Lifestyle. My theme for the challenge will be ‘Brands that people identify with‘.

I am keeping my fingers crossed in the hope that I will be be able to cover all alphabets from A to Z without a break.

Are you taking up the challenge?
