A to Z Reflections

The A to Z Blogging Challenge for 2019 is now in the history books. I participated right up until I just couldn’t. I had some deadlines that squeezed between having to adult and my job. I had to make a choice and left the challenge at ‘R’.

The Reflection post is a tradition at the A to Z Challenge. It gives everyone a chance to look back at what worked, what didn’t, what we’ve done, what was learned, and where we hope to go from here. There is a list of 10 questions that have been posed by the A to Z organizers. I may not answer all of them, but I hope, by doing this reflection post you will join us next year, or you will do your own challenge at some point.

A to Z asked: What did you love about the challenge?
This is the second year I participated and what I like the most about it is the push to keep up on this blog. I sometimes forget my readers (how rude!) when I’m falling down the writing rabbit hole. By doing this challenge I am reminded to get back to the important people — YOU, my readers.

A to Z: What would you change about it?
I would like to see a Blog Hop link. Was there one? Maybe I missed it. It would be nice to be able to have a link at the end of our posts (Linky Tools) so readers can easily check out the rest of the blogs participating.

A to Z: What was the best moment for you during this year’s challenge?
I hate to say this, but the day I had to call it to a stop. I know that is counterintuitive, but I was relived. I over extended myself and by stepping away I was doing myself (and everyone involved) a service that benefited all of us.

A to Z: What is the best comment your blog got during the challenge, and who left the comment?
I got so many wonderful comments from everyone who read the posts. I hope they all keep coming back to visit and commenting. It is encouraging to have comments and likes because then I know there are readers who enjoy the posts.

I found several new blogs to follow along the way. Check them out :

A to Z: Will you do the challenge again?
Absolutely!

There were more questions and much more to say, but I think I will close here by saying WOW!! A huge thank you goes back to everyone who worked hard to make this challenge happen. This is one of the best writing challenges I participate in and I’m looking to continue for sometime to come.

Until then? Happy reading!!

  1. Thank you for linking to my blog! 🙂 Sometimes stepping away is what’s needed to save you’re sanity. You can pick up again when you’ve recovered and finish out the alphabet at your own pace.

  2. Life can get in the way of blogging and that’s the way it should be. At least you made it to ‘R’–maybe you could still finish even though late?

    There is the sign-up list which can be used like a blog link up list. There are several ways to keep finding new participant blogs. I mostly used the A to Z Facebook page where each day the letter is posted and many would add their links to it. Also Twitter, the comment section of the A to Z blog, and following comments on other peoples’ blogs.

    Thanks for the thoughts and the participation. See you at A to Z next year (as well as through this year).
