A-Z Reflections


Just titling this email gets the Diana Ross & the Supremes song stuck in my head.  Did I mention that last year?  Or is this just deja vu?  Either way it's in there and it's stuck, but on with the post.

So, I finished the challenge last week and I intended to post this reflections post quickly, but life got busy quickly and here I am now, almost a week later.  But still well within the parameters of the guidelines so let's go!

I finished!  A second year!  Woo hoo!  It was a lot of fun and I again enjoyed it very much.  I signed up with the intention of scheduling the majority of the posts well in advance.  That didn't happen.  However, for most of the month I did write them the night before.  Some the morning of, and a few (mostly toward the end) the night of.  But I did it!

My favorite part was, again, the interactions with readers.  I love getting and replying to comments.  It is so interesting and fun to see what people around the country and world think.  It always amazed me just how far reaching technology can be.  So, that was by far my favorite part.

Getting around to visiting many other blogs was the biggest challenge.  I didn't make it to nearly as many as I'd hoped to, but I plan on going back to the list and continuing to work my way through it.  That way I won't feel so bad about not making the rounds in April.

Overall though I am so glad that I participated again this year.  It always serves as a reminder to why blogging is so much fun and just one of the reasons I love it!  I hope that if you found my blog through the challenge that you have enjoyed it.  Thanks to everyone who visited throughout the month!

All is well, reflected, in Drosche Land.
