Wrapping Up the A to Z Challenge

After completing the Blogging From A to Z Challenge last week, I took some downtime, but now it's time for a reflections post. My main wrap-up post is at Ellie's Blank Book, but I also have a few thoughts to include here.

1. For this blog, I had everything all figured out before the challenge started. Even though I didn't write the posts in advance, I knew exactly what my topics would be. Well, that didn't last long. I changed my mind several times over the course of the challenge. My Z post is one of the few I was adamant about from the beginning.

2. I started doing research several weeks ahead of time by watching videos. Some were new to me, while I had first seen the others many years ago.

3. The challenge has made me more determined than ever to come up with a regular (and feasible) blogging schedule.

4. I'm behind on return visits and comments, but I'll be working on that now that the challenge is over.

The challenge was fun, and I hope to participate again in the future.

I wish I would have found this blog during the challenge. I love the theme!

Thanks, Dana! Doing the research for this one was a lot of fun since it meant watching a lot of videos.

Congratulation on finishing the challenge. During the challenge I didn't visit as many blogs as I would like to but, cross my heart, I'm visiting every single one with the reflection post! I am so glad my journey brought me here.

Evalina, This and that...

Hi Eliza .. I'm struggling which of your blogs to follow - and then got lost in Yahoo .. anyway I'm here now - is this the right one .. as I'll need to come back and sign in to it etc .. I'm not sure I'm into Pets ..

Cheers Hilary

EvalinaMaria: Thank you!

Hilary: You can follow any or none; it's up to you--no pressure. This one is for arts and entertainment (books, TV, music, etc.). If you prefer something more generic, my catch-all blog is Ellie's Blank Book.
