A to Z Challenge Reflections



Hmmm.... This is going to be tricky. Because I have to write two of these... which means I have to separate my experiences...

Which is sort of hard, since April went by in such a blur... So... rather, I'm going to do an overview on this blog and the stats on the other.

Okay... so...

I met a lot of lovely new people and discovered a lot of lovely blogs. I'm not planning to stop, though, I will work my way through each of the comments and visit the commenters. Can't wait! ^_^

As for writing the posts, I really enjoyed the fact that I only had a few struggles with topics and that, except for the times that I was out of the house for longer than expected, every post went up on time. I was only late twice, and both were on Saturdays, so they went up before the weekend was done.

Furthermore, the Challenge helped me with two things: 1) It helped me realize that I'll have to start planning ahead in order to maintain my current posting schedules and work. 2) It helped me to see what was missing from TCoML, as mentioned on yesterday's post.

Otherwise, there wasn't much to say. My Challenge was remarkably stress-free....

How did your challenge go?

The Challenge went well and I'm happy that you had such a great experience with it. I just wish I had more time for it. Yet I made the most out of what I did have! :)

Glad the challenge went well for you! I enjoyed it, too--even though it seems like I was awake for most of April as I wrote, read, and commented. :)

Yes forward planning is a good idea as I found.
I enjoyed reading your posts very much.

In someways I think the A to Z challenge is becoming sort of like the blogging version of NaNo. It happens during a certain month and you have to get so many words written. Glad you enjoyed it.

Yes, the planning ahead was a revelation for me as well.

Nice reflections post!

I'm all for planning ahead. It just makes life harder if you don't. :)

I loved/hated it! It was a challenge, and tiring, but worth it. I found a lot of great blogs and very nice people and learned a lot. My reflection post is up. Click on my name to get to my blog. Nice finding you!

Didn't participate in the writing part of the challenge but I did in the reading(if that counts) and couldn't keep up with all the posts I wanted to read.

It's nice to meet another blogger who didn't struggle. I had an issue with I but J rescued me. Beyond that I had a plan and scheduled my posts leaving me plenty of time for cruising the many blogs. Somehow missed this one though.

I see you've signed up for the Challenge again this year, hope it all goes as smoothly for you as it appeared to have last year. Good luck ~ Judy (A-Z April Blogging Challenge Ambassador for Arlee Bird)
