April AtoZ blogging challenge 2012 reflections
April came and went in a blink of an eye
Blogging became my life, my world, my everything
Commenting, commenting commenting please please do, Ooh, I popped by and forgot to let you know, shame on me
Daily routine went out the window
Easiest task? Some wrote themselves
Felt love and hate about April AtoZ 2012, more love than hate
Going to do it again? Never. Not really, well, we’ll see, maybe.. hmm…
Highlights-seeing my writing prompts being used by others & hurdles-trying to comment, enough said…
I am a robot!
Jewels in the crown-those that kept going when they weren’t able to by roping in friends and family, well done you
Knowledge gained, I learnt lots about writing and flash fiction and all sorts of things, it was like flicking through an encyclopaedia
Lee, what would we do without Lee
Mornings spent hoping my blog had miraculously appeared at 00:01each day, it did!
N eventually.. wrote itself and was much loved
‘O idea what possessed me to sign up, never doing it again (hmm.. see g)
Posts that especially moved or impressed me – there were a number, I should have kept a list, those that managed a triple AtoZ were astonishing. Drat, I should have done an A2Z of Olympics.. how did I miss that one? (britain’s gone Olympics mad)
Quasi is how I felt during the AtoZchallenge
Ruled my life for a month, that’s what April AtoZchallenge 2012 did
Scheduling was a lifesaver when I was ill and took a holiday (not together), I know, how did I have time? Pre-scheduling was the key, a fantastic invention
Themes, I kept forgetting to say what my theme was, I did like the themes
Underestimating how long it takes to read and comment on blogs, I kept doing that
Verisimilitude, any excuse to repeat that word (very pleased I finished)
Wisdom to pass on, with all the wisdom out there? What can I offer? I’ll need to ponder that one
x-rated posts made me pink
You and me, we’re blogging friends now, yes?
Your reflections post gave me a chuckle. I didn’t realize you were running through the alphabet until I was half-way through the post. Excellently executed.
An A to Z Co-Host
Tossing It Out
Thanks Lee. There was me thinking it was way too obvious and corny.. Never assume what others will think about your posts. That’s my wisdom.
Like Lee, I was halfway through when I realized what you were doing, had to back up and read it again. LOVED IT!!!! So glad we got to meet through A-Z….
Thanks Donna. So glad to meet you too. I assume you all thought I’d forgotten some full stops.. It was a deliberate choice, I just left out the bullets.
Now that was a reflections post I enjoyed! It was a pleasure to get to know you during A-Z 🙂
If you’d like to guest post for us over at http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com to talk about your writing, or blogging in general, let us know at 2012AZinfo at gmail dot com.
#atozchallenge co-host 2012
Many thanks Damyanti.
Nice getting to know you too.
Always happy to guest post. Oops you’ve just reminded me I’ve got one overdue. Must do that one first.
Many thanks for your continued support, comments and of course tireless work as a co-host.
You made me laugh too. Well done. A highly entertaining feeback.
Thanks Rosalind. Just caught up with your posts I missed while ill and on hols. Must get a Helen Shapiro cd!
Funniest reflection post I’ve read so far. Like the others, I didn’t realise until halfway through. Brilliant.
Thanks Lily. I read one much funnier. Will have to go find it again now! Tee Hee.. Just realised! It was yours! Yours was way funnier than mine, I loved it!
As for not working out mine, I’d like to say I planned it that way..
Unlike Lee and Donna, I was well over halfway before I realized you were doing the alphabet, lol. Great post. I missed a bit of your challenge posts, so I’m going to go catch up. Have a great day 🙂
Thanks Kela. I’m on catch up of quite a few too. work and leave and AtoZ=too much of a challenge
Congratulations on completing the A to Z Challenge and then taking the time to offer your reflections on the experience. I was exhausted for about a week after, even though I had composed all of my posts before April! Love your alphabetic recap! (I did that in Z is for …)
By next year, you will be chomping at the bit to prepare for the 2013 Challenge!
Glad you like it. You don’t realise, going in, how much energy keeping on top of comments and reading and commenting on others takes. I hadn’t written all of mine and also decided to ditch and change a few. Chomping at the bit? Never. Not really, well, we’ll see, maybe.. hmm… 😉
Reflection is a good thing, You have done a great job on the A to Z Challenge…
A to Z Co-Host
My New Book:
Retro-Zombie: Art and Words
Thanks Jeremy. Congratulations to all the co-hosts. It’s been a great AtoZ and wouldn’t have been without all of your hard work.
Thanks Jen. This one wrote itself very quickly.
Well done! I follow. Bummer I didn’t find you until now. http://tonjasmusings.blogspot.com.
Thanks Tonja. No worries, I’ve only been blogging since Jan. We’ve found each other now and we can buddy up in nano12.. maybe.. We survived AtoZ2012! Well done us!
Of course we are friends now, I’m following your blog. Congratulations on finishing the challenge, hopefully we will do it again next April!
congrats on finishing! cute way to reflect
I too was half way through the post before I realised how clever you were being, well done. I enjoyed your posts through the challenge ,your blog was one I kept returning too. I think we all deserve a pat on the back for getting through it. Half way through I thought I had done the wrong thing by starting but I’m glad I stuck it out.
Many thanks Ann. Me, clever? Never conciously! Unconciously maybe, as I had no idea it was that hidden.. I kept returning to yours too. yes, patting on back!
I had the halfway dips too and like you am glad I stuck it out. Well done us!! xx
Very clever, Lynne…well done! Sounds like you had a fabulous time during the Challenge…
Thanks Jarm. Fabulous time? It had more ups than downs. Overall, I’m really pleased I did it. An amazing challenge.
I see what you did there. Nice.
Brilliant post! It was a pleasure to have found you and read so many of your posts during the challenge.
Perhaps we will meet next year in the A to Z.
Thanks Teresa. Perhaps.. 🙂
Love the continuation of the A-Z with your reflection! I also underestimated the amount of time it takes to read and comment on blogs. I am nowhere near complete with visiting all the blogs.
I’ll never visit all the blogs. Thanks for commenting and glad you liked my A-Z reflection.
