#AtoZChallenge Reflection

We were asked to reflect upon our 26 days of blogging for the #AtoZChallenge.

I have to say it was a challenge to write each day!  It was my very first structured, what usually works with me, daily writing on unplanned subjects.  There were words written down for each letter but I really had no strategy.  Well, that’s not true.  I had a strategy to just get through it.


Being completely naive about blogging and its culture, I was really in Spanish immersion.  I visited sites every day sometimes two or three but had difficulty in finding a place on Blogspot to like the pieces.  I found myself spending more time reading the variety of sites than writing my own.  Towards the end I found myself only visiting WordPress sites where I could indicate a visit.  Now I am spending time on all the ones I wasn’t able to hit.

As the challenge progressed I found motivation from those who visited my posts.  Everyday I began to see regular visitors who gave me confidence in my writing.  I am more confident but I still don’t sense myself in my writing.  I know that probably sounds funny.  It will change I know as I continue writing.  This has been a very amazing experience.  I have learned how much I do like to write.  I will probably be back next year; maybe a tad wiser and at least more seasoned.

To all who stopped by during this challenge I deeply thank you.  Yes, you were the light at the end of the tunnel for me.  Mostly you were my muse and touched me more than I think you realized.  Through your visits I grew and gained a sense of community in a very large world.  Each of you embodied the essence of “Being Nice”.  Thank you!  To the organizers of this challenge, Bravo!  It was such a great experience to enter an entirely different world, make new friends, and discover more of me.

Congrats to everyone who made it to the end!

    Great reflection post Teri! I’m so glad that you liked the whole process. It is a bit daunting, that’s for sure. And I’m right there with you on the Blogspot blogs. I don’t like that they don’t have a Like button where you can indicate that you’ve been there. Alot in my circle have complained about that so maybe they will institute a Like button. And I’m so glad that you’ll be coming back next year! Congrats. You did GREAT!!! ❤

  2. Even though it is after the fact, I love finding other writers who participated in the challenge! I found the motivation from the community of writers to be incredibly important as well! I love the eclectic feel of your blog and look forward to reading more! 🙂
