Mission Accomplished - A to Z Challenge

Mission Accomplished - A to Z Challenge
(posted for the A to Z Challenge)

Old TypewriterThat’s it! May Day is here, and the A to Z Challenge is complete. Whew! We did it!

Here’s my full list of April blogging challenge posts, from A to Z.

·  PB&J Day

I honestly enjoyed doing the alphabetical blog entries, although a few letters led to some serious head-scratching, as I tried to come up with creative blogging topics. On several occasions, I was pleased to offer links to online articles from friends and writing colleagues. (I invite you to read past posts. You never know whose writing may turn up in links!)

The actual rules of the A to Z Challenge spelled out an expectation for six blog posts each week throughout the month of April. This would give bloggers Sundays off. Somehow, I didn’t get the memo on that detail, and I pre-posted several entries for seven days a week. Finally, I just decided to stick with that formula, so I finished a few days early.

The A to Z Challenge was fun, and participating helped me to regain motivation and momentum for blogging at Practically at Home, as well as at my other active blogs: The Mane Point, Nickers and Ink, and the Meme Express. (You can find links to these blogs in my sidebar or on my blogging profile.)

Thanks to all the A to Z Challenge participants, who visited and commented and even became blog followers. Welcome!

  1. I agree. This challenge was just what I needed to get the motivation to blog more often.

    drop by for a visit, and if you do please leave a comment. Thanks.

  3. I am also visiting from A-Z..better late then never. I have enjoyed reading through all of your posts!
    Happy May Day!

  4. I wound up posting on Sundays anyway, just not with A-Z stuff :P

  5. congrats on making it to the end of a wonderfully challenging month!

  6. What a nice positive post. I'm glad you had a great time and you finished before schedule.

    My posts took so long, I was lucky to finish them on time. I did flash fiction with a twist/riddle. Talk about a challenge.

    I didn't get to visit as many blogs as I would've liked by here I am now....

  7. +1 follower from blog hop, cool blog

  8. This is probably my fav of all your blogs but I do love them all :P

    You succeeded above and beyond in this challenge and that's gotta feel good :)

    Cheers :)

  9. I never did make it to your site during the Challenge, but I am now a follower. You had quite an array of interesting sounding topics and I hope to get to some of them eventually. It's going to take me awhile to sort through all of the Reflections posts.
    Thanks for joining us and congratulations on making it to the end.

    Don't forget to pick up your Winner's Badge at my site.

  10. Hi there! I'm visiting from the AZ challenge. I didn't have time with all the posting to read more than a few each day, so Shannon @ The Warrior Muse and I are joining forces in another challenge. We're going to visit and comment at each of the participants, starting with the reflections post. We hope you'll join us!

  11. P.S I love the idea of putting up a table of contents at the end. I think you should email that idea to Arlee for next year. I was intrigued by many of your titles, so I'm your new follower!
