#AtoZChallenge Reflections


Another year, another AtoZ reflection, this one’s my fourth.

Before I start I’d like to thank the co-hosts and Arlee without whom this challenge wouldn’t happen.

Chuck together a few words with some sketches I’ve done during the year and job done was my theory for this year.

Draw and write about drawings.

Easy, no?

Far from it, since I took ill and didn’t get many if any posts prescheduled.

Goals are great but be prepared to miss them.

Hours disappeared as I caught up with some amazing blog posts.

Individuals graced me with their presence, not as many as I’d hoped but I didn’t get around as many others either.

Janizary got me out of a hole for J.

Kind comments were left by those visiting me.

Largely an enjoyable experience, everyone was very supportive and played nice as expected.

Mystery surrounding when I tried to comment and wasn’t able to, that put me off visiting as I never knew how successful it would be.

Numbers of participants were lower than expected and I haven’t yet found as many blogs as I’d usually be drawn to.

One by one the numbers dropped off, no idea if more than usual disappeared throughout the month.

Pre-scheduled is definitely the way to go to help engage with others and be more ‘visible’ with comments, I probably said the same in previous years.

Quieter than the usual buzz but I still had quality visitors.

Reflecting if I’m a robot or not.

Stats were much lower for me than previous years though steady for most of the month.

Tina’s sunflower story helped inspire me to keep going.

Unique writers are out there, as usual.

Valued visits from co-hosts and their volunteers.

Waiting to fall into the trap of doing it again next year although at this point I’d say ‘no way!’.

X is always a tough letter to blog about though this year some of the easier letters were harder than the usual harder letters.

You can take me off the lower than 100 followers (broke that barrier) list if that’s still there.

Zombie seemed to be the in-word to finish this year, it would be good to have a list somewhere of the titles each day allowing us to find ones we’re drawn to more often, no idea how you’d do that other than by a hashtag maybe.
