A to Z Reflections

Oh my, I thought I was done!

I mean, I wrote 26 posts about my thoughts about blogging, one for each letter of the alphabet.

Wasn't that good enough?
{Obviously not!}

Now they want me to write my thoughts about me writing 26 posts about my thoughts about blogging in the A to Z Challenge.  Whew, that was a mouth full!  But, not only do they want my thoughts about me blogging in the challenge, they also want to know how I felt about visiting other bloggers, commenting, if I enjoyed the challenge, and if I would participate again!

 So here goes my A to Z Challenge Reflections:
  • I really enjoyed the challenge.  I did get a little behind, especially at the end because I went on vacation.  So, on Monday night, April 30th, I ended up writing 6 posts for the last 6 letters, but I did finish!  And, I do plan on participating in the challenge again next year!
  • I enjoyed visiting other the other bloggers.  I was not able to visit all of the participants through the month of April, but as long as the participant list is up, I do plan on continuing to visit the other blogs.
  • For every blog that I did visit, I did try to comment, although sometimes it was a pain.  I hate the word verification, although I did find a way to make it more interesting through a blog that I follow and read regularly {although she did not participate in the challenge!}. You can find the post here.
  • I loved receiving all the readers, new followers, and comments on my posts throughout the challenge.  I tried my best to respond to all comments that I received either by e-mail (my preferred way to respond to comments), or by visiting the blog of the individual that commented and returning the favor!
 Here are some great blogs that I found to read and follow somehow because of the challenge {either they were participants or they were reading and commenting on posts or they found me or something}:
  
Now, you may have noticed I didn't post descriptions of these blogs.  Well, that is because they are all great, and I want you to go read them for yourself!  I really do think you will like them!
And, if you missed any of my A to Z Challenge blog posts, here they are:

I enjoyed your April postings. I had to work a few days a week and got behind a little. I am hoping to go through the entire linky list, but I think that's going to take me to next April to achieve. :) Thanks for the shout out.

Congratulation on finishing the challenge. During the challenge I didn't visit as many blogs as I would like to but, cross my heart, I'm visiting every single one with the reflection post! I am so glad my journey brought me here.

Evalina, This and that...
