REFLECTIONS ON A to Z BLOG CHALLENGE…APRIL- 2014
Here it is the month of May already. April flew by in a flash, thanks to my participation in the Blog Challenge. I’d just learned of the challenge shortly before it began, so I signed up not one, but two blogs. Yes, I jumped in with both
feet blogs…one I’d posted on pretty regular, the other almost brand new. There were a few kinks to work out, and I received excellent set up tips from some very kind bloggers. I’d like to thank the founder of A to Z Blog Challenge, Arlee Bird, for his most encouraging words, and for creating this most amazing challenge. Thanks also, to Sue (suesconsideredtrifles.wordpress.com) for your helpful tips, and continued support, and thanks to anxiousgeek (the firstname.lastname@example.org) for stopping by with technical knowledge. I appreciate you all.
The challenge was lots of fun…the writing and posting of a subject for each letter, each day. I didn’t have much trouble thinking of something to write about…in fact, most letters, I had too many ideas. I probably will continue awhile with them, just because I’ve enjoyed it, and since most were taken from some personal experience, it brought back great memories.
Since the challenge ended, I’ve been feeling a bit at loose ends. What do I do now? I really liked the challenging aspect of a deadline. Knowing I had to publish something every single day, was just what I needed. I will certainly be accepting the challenge next year.
The best part, for me, was realizing that people were actually reading my blog! Thank you to all who took the time to visit here, to make comments, to follow, and to say you liked what I have been doing. You all have given me a great boost in confidence! I so appreciate you! I also enjoyed getting to read other bloggers entries, and will try to continue to visit and comment on yours and others I’ve seen on the list for the challenge.
I’d like to congratulate everyone who participated in the A to Z Blog Challenge this year. Yay for us…we did it!
Thank you so much! Until we meet again in blogland…all my best to you!
