Reflections on the A to Z Challenge

Well, it was challenging. First I had to figure out how to make a blog as I had never created one before. Getting the A to Z badge on my blog was a bit challenging as well. Then thinking of something to write about almost everyday was challenging, but it was good because I managed to create a blog and write one from A to Z.

Thank you to the person who told me about the A to Z challenge and has helped me with instructions on how to improve my site (which I have not finished yet, but I will!)

Thank you to all the bloggers. I enjoyed reading many many of your blogs. Some gave me quite a chuckle which I needed and appreciated. Thank you to those who chose to follow me and I will try
to not walk over a cliff or into an alligator infested swamp and shall try to refrain from too many rants that have been simmering inside my fingertips for quite some time. Wait....maybe I need to get them out. But I do not mean to offend anyone, they are just my expressions on the contradictions I see in life.

On reflection, the challenge was a good thing and it got me to write when I usually only send emails about gnomes to one of my friends. I used to occasionally write poetry when I was younger, maybe it is time to haul those out and try to fix them. But that is my problem, I seldom want to edit or rewrite anything to any great degree as I think that what flows out and spills onto the paper first is the essence of what you wanted to say. I must learn to rewrite and improve.

Thank you for hosting the A to Z Challenge. Good luck to all of you wonderful and talented writers!


  1. i find ranting on my blog to be very therapeutic, even though I have far less to rant about these days. Which I guess is a good thing! :)

  2. I know how you feel! A blog - what was that all about but we sussed it, we did it and we feel proud of our achievement. Look forward to reading your blog.

  3. I couldn't believe I managed to write that many posts! It's so much easier to drop down to three per week now.

  4. It was nice to meet you, best regards.
