A-Z Reflections post
Yay! The 4th year doing the A - Z Challenge has come to a close. I'm pretty proud of myself for having all my posts (on 2 blogs!) written & scheduled mostly ahead of time. This was actually a really easy theme - telling sea stories from my Navy days. I even did 2 posts for a couple letters since it was tough to keep them a manageable length. And I still have topics I could write about!
I am rather ashamed at how crappy I was with replying back to commenters in a timely fashion and I didn't visit nearly enough other participants. Sincere apologies being sent out! I don't know why life just seems to get insane during the spring, or maybe just April in general? I don't know. But I promise to still go back and make my replies and I'll be hopping on the road trip to hopefully redeem myself somewhat.
I participated in the Twitter chat each Thursday afternoon. I learned about the fabulous wonders of Tweetdeck and the people I chatted with are the first blogs I'm going to go visit!
Other than that, I think the hosts & their minions do an outstanding job and I can't think of anything that I'd change about the challenge.
~hanging head in shame~ I'd be able to do some blog shout-outs if I'd visited more of them. I was even getting behind in my regular Bloglovin' feed! I really appreciate how many categories there are in the sign up linky. I confess to staying away somewhat from the book reviewers and writer blogs. I blog for shitz & gigglez and they're like hardcore authors, so they are kind of intimidating to me. I don't know why I feel that way!
Yes, I will be doing it again next year. I'll start a new spreadsheet on my Google Drive and jot down ideas and topics as they come to me throughout the year.
