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!
