I Survived the A-Z Challenge!

I completed my second year of the A-Z Challenge! I had a general topic in mind this time around unlike last year. It wasn't the initial idea I had immediately after I finished my first year of the challenge. Maybe I'll mull over that topic again and see if it's doable for next year. It was definitely easier to have a broad topic and have a rough draft of the day's post. I was usually a day ahead in my posts but sometimes I would change my mind on what to post on the very day of the deadline. Since I sleep late, I frequently posted 2 letters a day, one before midnight and one after for the next day's letter. I've also realized that the last few letters are the toughest to get through specially x, y, and z. Scientific terms or other jargon are really the way to go for those letters.

I was slightly better at commenting on other blogs this time. I didn't like the ones that required me to sign in to comment though. Word verification was fine with me. I found the link list with the button a little too late but I visited as many blogs I could throughout the month. I've bookmarked many interesting blogs to visit again.

For next time's challenge, I'll try to have a topic pinned down by the end of the year.

This looks like a nice challenge. I am sure that this would somewhat help us to learn much more things. Is the challenge only available on April each year?

Visiting from A/Z post challenge reflections; congrats on finishing the challenge! And congrats that it was your second year to do so! I agree with you; X, Y, Z are challenging letters indeed! I think it would be fun one year to do the challenge in reverse, start with Z and work our way to A!

I hope you have a great weekend!

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

Evalina, This and that...
