Reflecting upon this latest A to Z Challenge, I'm satisfied with how it went and disappointed all at the same time.
I'll start with what I am disappointed in this time around, as I'd rather end this entry on a positive note.
Once again circumstances prevented me from getting all my posts done ahead of time and this in turn limited my time to explore, read and comment upon other blogs.
I made the choice to post entries that let readers get to know me better, but I wish I'd have stuck to a story telling theme as I did in the past two years as that is my strong suit. Visitors didn't get to see me at my best.
Somewhere along the way, and I don't know when exactly, my link disappeared off the AtoZ Challenge linky list! I have no idea why. I left a comment inquiring, but received no reply.
Now, on to the reasons I'm satisfied with this year's Challenge.
I met several of my personal goals for this year! One was to have one hundred followers on my blog, which I now have 102! Another was to get over 50 on my Facebook page, and as of today I have 58. And though I set no goals for it, I also picked up several new email subscribers! Also found my twitter followers increase and picked up a couple of new people on Pinterest. A great big THANK YOU to everyone who begun in some way to connect with me here at Caneyhead!
I did manage to get the 1st week's posts and the last week's posts done the weekend before.
I found a few new blogs that I think I'm going to love following. I was looking specifically for blogs whose writers seemed to have a quirky sense of humor similar to my own.
This year I actually was able to get in on a Twitter chat when I was on lunch break at work. I enjoyed that.
The hosts, as aways, are proficient, courteous, helpful and inspiring. Thank you all!
I have already made a regular post since the end of the Challenge, so perhaps this year I will actually stay engaged in blogging.
To surmise, I enjoyed this year's Challenge and have every intention of being in on next years'. Even have a couple of ideas in my head for a theme, sticking more to a storytelling vein.
The Challenge may be over, but you can still visit the blogs through the Survivor tag on my sidebar. With over 2000 blogs involved, you are sure to find something you enjoy.
