A to Z Challenge Reflection


I'm pumping my fist in the air for making it through all 26 letters.

Now I'm fist pumping for everyone else who made it.

Worth it...absolutely.

I met some wonderful, creative folks and forged closer relationships with others who I already knew.

Difficult...absolutely.

I approached each letter post the way a designer would approach their daily sketch diary. One new picture/post a day to sharpen my blogging skills.


Thrilled with my new followers...absolutely.

Suggestion:
It would be cool to have a code to identify the flavor of the participating blogs. 
W for writing, C for cooking, B for book review etc.

Thank you to the hosts who lit up Bloglandia with this fabulous opportunity.

  5. Great idea, Leslie (about some code to ID blog flavor). Of course, then you might not stumble onto a delightful surprise--a blog that you might not have visited, but turns out to be well-written and interesting.

    Congrats to you for crossing the finishing line.

  12. I'm still amazed at how many bloggers participated, especially since they had to blog almost everyday. I'm just exhausted thinking about it.

    Congrats on finishing in one piece, Leslie! :D

  15. I like that idea of a code, so you know what you're getting into. The problem is with a blog like mine, I have no idea what mine is. Ha! I'm just a writer, but I don't always talk about writing. So maybe I'd be WBR, like writing and Books and random. Hehe.

    Congrats to all who succeeded in the challenge!

  16. Congrats on finishing! I am in awe of all you guys who took this challenge. And I agree...knowing the type of blogs would be good. I think all the ones I visited were all writer blogs, tho.

  17. It was work and fun. It would be interesting to sign up under categories. That said, I'm not signing up again! I'm STILL tired.

  18. Good idea about the codes. I agree. Especially if A-Z grows even bigger.

  19. It was crazy, Leslie, but worth it as you say. Made lovely new friends & reconnected with bloggers I hadn't visited in awhile.

    Unfortunately I gave up early and did not reach Z :-(
