I am pretty amazed and kinda sad that the A to Z Challenge is over and that I successfully accomplished it. I am very proud of myself for changing up my topics on a daily basis. Some days I gave you guys an insider's view of my family and my life at home, some days I showed you some crafts, one day I branched out and wrote a poem (really proud of myself there), and some days when I had no idea what to write about, I googled the letter and came up with some great, new words.
I am pretty sad that my followers didn't rise as much as I would have liked, but I also wasn't able to blog hop my way through the list like I thought I would have. I am also not going to follow a blog, just so you will follow me. I also don't want people to follow my blog if they, in return, are not truly interested. I would love to have a HUGE number and know that I am "popular" in the blogging world, but I am trying not to stress over it. I did double my number, and I guess that is good enough for now.
One thing I learned was how to preschedule posts. I think that was the most helpful thing. I preposted up to G, and it was a huge time saver. I wish I would have preposted more, but the days got away from me pretty quickly. I did however like linking up some of my posts to what was going on in my life, for example Y is for Yuck! I would have never known to prepost that LOL
I found some amazing blogs that I know I would not have found with out this experience. It is crazy, a lot of the blogs that I fell in love with, didn't have a huge following either.
In case you missed some of my A to Z posts, you can find them here. I would do this challenge again and again, it was a great experience for me! I am not sure what all I will write about next, but I do know I need to find a new challenge to keep me on my toes and keep my posts exciting! If anyone knows of anything coming up, please let me know!!!!!
What are you going to do with your time now that the challenge is over???
