Reflections? I got some.
So, the developers/creators/MEGA-MINDS behind the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge are asking all of us to reflect on last month. To give them our perspective on the challenge.
Here's my take.
I had a freakin' blast.
Sure, I had some doubts about the letters and whether I was gonna come up with anything for all 26 days. It wasn't easy.
It also wasn't rocket science. I was hanging out with a gnome for goodness sake.
Pros: Stormy is just funny.
Cons: Stormy became a permanent fixture in my life. I had to make sure I brought him and the camera every where I went. Just in case.
Pros: Posting pictures each day was a lot easier than writing. I mean, his face did most of the talking.
Cons: Posting pictures each day was a lot easier than writing. Which kept it from actually being a challenge. I do think next year I will pick a theme that doesn't rely so heavily on photos.
Pros: Stormy has all kinds of new fans, and not just on the blog. Every where I went people wanted to know what I was doing with a gnome.
Cons: I hate talking to people. I tried to be as covert as I could but sometimes its just not possible. You pull a gnome out of your bag and set him somewhere for a photo shoot...people want to know what the hell you're doing.
To sum it all up:
I'm glad I did it, just as I was last year.
I'm thankful so many people came to visit me, old and new.
I'm happy I convinced my MOM to do it. I think she had fun.
I'm thrilled I found so many new and interesting blogs.
I'm amazed at what some of my wonderful blog friends came up with to surprise us each day.
A giant THANK YOU to our wonderful hosts for all the hard work and long hours they put in on the challenge.
But...keep a weather eye on the horizon...you never know when someone might come out for a visit.
