A to Z Challenge: Reflections

A-to-Z Reflection [2016]And now, 9 days after the end of the 2016 Great Blogging from A to Z  Challenge, I am ready to reflect briefly on the experience.  http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2016/05/2016-to-z-challenge-reflections.html

This was my third time participating in this challenge, and as usual, I had a great time.  And also as usual, I didn’t spend nearly enough time commenting back on others’ posts.  I did some, don’t get me wrong, and I read a LOT of posts and added a lot of blogs to my Reader, but I didn’t comment as much as I had been intending.  I won’t posts links to any favourite challenge blog sites or individual posts because I enjoyed them all and don’t want to leave anyone out.

As usual as well, I wrote many of my posts on the fly.  I didn’t settle on my final theme, the A to Z of learning how to use my new-old DSLR camera, until the last moment, and kept a day or two ahead of the letters as I went.  That being said, I learned a lot about my camera and had a great time researching and posting bits and pieces of what I was learning.

What did I learn from the challenge itself?  Just that I will absolutely be doing it again next year.  I won’t promise to post in advance or plan more, because in all honesty I know myself enough to know I won’t, but I will try to comment more and let all you wonderful A to Z bloggers out there how much I enjoyed your posts!!

And now, to close, here is one last picture of my DSLR which I am looking forward to continue getting better at using!

My new toy

And, for good measure, a kitty – because that’s what I do!

  1. I added about 20 people to my reader thanks to the A To Z Challenge. This is the first year that I tried it and will probably do it again, although next time I’m doing more advanced planning. ‘Ya know?

  2. It’s the same thing everywhere, isn’t it? Not enough time to comment. I hear it everywhere in the Reflection posts.
    I suppose this is obvious. With more that 1500 active blogs in the months and with tens of blogs each one of us follows for the chalelnge (I was following some 40 blogs this year), there’s no way to keep up, just only if you have a day job (not to mention when life happen, as it happend to me).
    But then, there’s a lot of time afterward to try anc catch up, which is what I’m trying to do these days.

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Did you really read my entire challenge?

    • Exactly – now I can take some time and go back and read at my leisure. And yes, I did read your entire challenge! I loved it (I love jazz, and reading about this history of jazz, so it was right up my alley!)
