It was good.
It was fun.
It was long.
And, it's over. :)
I have lots of people to thank.
To Alex J. Cavanaugh! Not only did he pick me to be a Ninja Minion this year (squee!) BUT he came to see Stormy every single day AND then humbled us by choosing us during his awesome Ninja theme for the A to Z Challenge! He says the nicest things about us, using my almost favorite show in the whole wide world (Shiny!), and we really love him for it! Go check it out!
Most of the pictures for this year's theme were taken last year. We were able to enjoy some of the nicest places thanks to my brother, Peter, and his wife, Katie (my seester). Katie's family owns the house on the shore in NJ, which thankfully didn't get too much damage from Hurricane Sandy, and they own the house on the lake in NJ. We also took photographs in their own home and of their black cat, Ninja. We are very thankful to all of them for sharing with us.
To Tara Tyler! Not only did she mention Stormy and I on her blog during the challenge BUT she made me the cool Gnarly Gnome picture on the right side of my blog! By the way, her new book, Pop Travel, is going to be released in July!
To all my wonderful visitors! I'd like to thank all of you and your awesome comments for the whole month.
To my son! I use all your stuff in my photos. Thanks.
To my husband! You sure put up with a lot. Thanks.
This was my third year in the challenge, second with Stormy. I still enjoy myself. It's not hard work, just time consuming.
My results weren't terribly noticeable. I didn't see a huge rise in followers or comments during the month.
I did visit with lots of blogs during my minion duties and through other blogger mentions. There are some really talented people out there and I was thrilled to be a part of it.
So, that's about it. I think. If I missed something feel free to mention it.
How do you feel about the challenge?
