I do not remember what I was looking for (something blog related I’m sure) when I hit the search button on Goggle and there it was, the link for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge website. It was the first website in a long list of search results. Was it fate? I think so….
I am a new blogger who had just started a blog on January 1, 2014. I had never heard of a blog hop or a linky list before and I was quite intrigued. After reading all the information on the Blogging A to Z Challenge I decided to participate as it sounded not only challenging, but fun.
I decided my blog theme would be emotions. Some of the letters were a real challenge! And well, some posts fell a little short of being an actual emotion.
I am proud to say that I blogged every single day of the challenge without missing a day or having any blogs written ahead of time. With the medical problems that I deal with on a daily basis just being able to be on the computer long enough to write and post a blog every day was a challenge in itself!
My main focus was on making sure that I posted each day. After that I was busy visiting, commenting, following, whatever I could do for fellow A to Z Bloggers. My medical conditions, however, did cause me to fall way behind in this part of the challenge. I am still working on catching up though….and then I am hoping to hit the list again (as long as it’s still there) and this time I will be able to spend more time liking Facebook pages and following on Twitter. So you will be seeing me around : )
This blog challenge also allowed me to not only connect with other bloggers but to read blogs from very talented and creative individuals. I read many blogs that made me laugh, made me sad, made me think, and taught me things…
The A to Z team and participating bloggers who I had the opportunity to interact with during this challenge were all very nice and super supportive. I obtained many followers, many likes, and many comments, of which I am extremely grateful.
A HUGE thank you to all those who took the time to visit, comment, follow, like or tweet a blog post of mine, liked my Facebook page, ect….It was all very much appreciated!
Being this was my first year I do have a question. There were times when I came upon a website that no longer existed or my virus protection detected a threat. Should we be informing someone of this, and if so who?
The Blogging from A to Z Challenge was an awesome experience! You’ll definitely be seeing me again next year!
