A to Z Challenge Reflection

We survived, we got there, we succeeded.
Completed the A to Z Challenge for April that is.

Have you enjoyed it?

I sure have.

I have had to think outside my box for posts, although I did try where possible to keep them on subjects I normal mention, no major history lessons or weird and wonderful explainations of things neither of us were really interested in!

I have read some awesome posts on some awesome blogs. Checked out 1 or 2 that were a little boring or strange, but then not every blog you come across is going to suit your style or personality. At least I checked them out.
I have truely learnt things that I never knew I needed to know and some things that I wonder if.......
  • Did I really need to know that?
  • Will I ever use that information again?
  • Why did people not manage to understand the concept "don't have word verification on!"
I guess the biggest question that may get asked is.........Would I do it all again next year?

Hmm lets see.....
  • 26 posts in one month
  • In alphabetical order
  • With no theme attached unless you want to
  • The ability to check out at least another 1900 blogs
Sure why not, I can possibly see a photo month coming on, maybe even a stitching month or a poem month. Who knows I now have a 11 months to plan it.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who took the time to come on by and visit. I enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you better by visiting back. I have gained some new followers and way more blogs to follow than I am sure I can manage, but I will give it a great go.
So I look forward to getting to know you all better over the coming year and seeing how we do next year in the A to Z Challenge 2013.

And to totally understand what the challenge meant then go visit Transitional Woman who managed to sum it all up so perfectly.

Catch you all again tomorrow....!

I love New Zealand! I travelled through the North Island, and the South to Christchurch, visiting missionaries I had worked with in Papua New Guinea.
Congrats on completing the Challenge...I plan to do it again next year!
