Blogging from A to Z April Challenge Reflections Post 2013


Can you believe April is over already? What a fun month it was. I managed to blog for every letter from A to Z in the April 2013 A to Z Challenge. My goal for the rest of this year is to read at least one blog post of everyone that participated. This might take me awhile because there were 1656 entries! Fun times! :o)

I really enjoyed this year's challenge and I hope to play again next year.  As a matter of fact, I am already thinking of a theme for next year's challenge.  Knowing me I will probably change my mind a million times between now and then, but we shall see.

Thank you to Arlee Bird over at Tossing it Out for coming up with this awesome challenge and for hosting. Also, thank you to the following hosts:

  2. Congrats on completing the beast that was A to Z! I did "free-style" my first year but was glad I had a theme to stick to this time around.

  7. I'm thinking of next year too. It might be easier to space this out and prepare posts as they happen. The alphabet has never held so much meaning for me, I tell ya! Congratulations on finishing the challenge:)

  9. I always end up doing the A to Z, even though it always exhausts me too :) But it's such a great chance to meet new bloggers!

  14. Hey Shannon, thanks for participating in this year's challenge and kudos to you for continuing to visit participants by aiming to read at least one new blog post on the list between now and next year's challenge. Time is flying by so fast it seems but I'm glad to have come across your blog while I do this A-Z Road Trip thing. Your reflections are short and sweet and I love it! You'll likely settle on a theme when you find one that speaks to you. I've thought about a few for next year but I'm probably going to change them several times over myself, lol.

    Cheers!
