Blogging From A To Z: Reflections

This was my first year to participate in Blogging From A To Z. If you don't know what that is, click here & you can find out all of the information.

This is my reflection post after completing the challenge. Yes, I blogged everyday in April (except for Saturdays - our scheduled days off.) Originally, I thought "yeah, this is going to be EASY!" As the days past, I realized that it wasn't as easy as I thought.

It's not that it was difficult. I just wished that I had planned a little more about what I wanted to post. Many days I was so busy with other work that I felt rushed & sometimes just uninspired. For next year, I am going to make it a point of planning my posts along with setting them up in advance when possible.

I enjoyed the experience, though. It made me post regularly along with looking for "different" topics & areas of interest that I might not have mentioned.

I had a lot of fun checking out the other participants' blogs, too! I usually only visit "crafty" blogs, so BFAZ introduced a variety of bloggers that I might never have found.

Overall, it was an amazing experience. The only problem was my lack of preparation. Next year, it will be so much better!

It's a miracle that you know how to blog every day! I know I wouldn't be able to! But hey, planning? I think the charm lies in being a bit chaotic every now and then, lol! Happy Sunday!

Yes, it does, which is probably what I'll do anyway. I'm a procrastinator, so I'm sure I will fly by the seat of my pants next time around just like this year.

I think I would probably create 1/2 of the week's posts in advance - This will allow me to be free to do other things, such as my DTs, shop & cleaning up my house :)

I think it's kind of fun to go the first year like you did so you can get the hang of it. I totally winged it the first year and it was a real learning experience.
Good luck with the next one.
