#atozchallenge: G Is for Great Job So Far!

 
            We're finishing our first week and so far the A to Z Challenge is a gigantic success.  Heads are swirling with blog posts everywhere to read.  It's been like entering a theme park for blogging this week.  The pulls of where to go next are strong, but one thing is guaranteed:  Wherever you go you're going to find something good.

        Hope everyone is having a grand time with this 2012 edition of Blogging from A to Z.  This will be a busy weekend for many of you and blog visits may be down.  Those of you who are able to spend some time blogging this weekend can perhaps take up the slack for those who will be spending time with family and holiday events.  We've got  a wonderful community gathered together here.

         You all are doing a great job so far!

  8. Where'd the linky list of bloggers go? I was using the signup sheet for the blogs to visit, but it's gone now.

  9. We could do this challenge on more than one blog? Ooh, that would have been fun. I have book blog, too (under a different username). Maybe next year!

  10. I'm having a Grand time with the challenge - my first time, too. And yes - it's like a blogging theme park. I've been visiting about 10 blogs per day + the blogs of challenge bloggers who visit mine + my regular blog buddies (who are delighted with this, too.) So lots more time spent on blogging, but it's worth it. Thank you to the organizers for making this so fun.

  11. Rubye, I just checked, and the list is still there. It took a long time for it to load, though, so you probably just need to give it more time.

  21. Hi: Having fun but noticed that not all of my comments are published. I try hard to make the connection and write something personal and yet, it can be disheartening.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Glad to hear so many are still keeping up energy and staying power. Still a few weeks to go.

    Lover--not sure about what's happening with your comments. Are you talking about the ones that need approval from the blog owners? Hopefully your situation will be resolved with satisfaction.

  26. Guaranteed, I am having a grinning good time with the A to Z Challenge. This first week ended so quickly but I have visited many interesting blogs already. Can't wait to see what next week will bring.

  33. My followers and my page views have increased tremendously. This is the best thing I could have done for my blog. (I plan to get caught up reading lots of blog posts this weekend.)

  36. yeah, can you believe the first week is over already? Now to get busy with next weeks letters...
    Have a blessed Easter!

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's been a great week - but we're slowly coming up to the letters I have no posts for yet! Argh!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Its terrible I hate the alphabet even more now. I knew it was full of letters but dam it there are a whole 26 or is it more?

    Still I've started so what can I do but carry on. It will be horrible on Monday and incredibly horrible on Tuesday and then on Wednesday it will be jolly incredibly horrible. You see it just gets worse the longer it goes on.

    Still it could be even worse and we could be using the Chinese alphabet and I would be trapped for the next ten years.

    The only redeeming thing is everyone is avoiding my blog so PHEW ...... NO dont look, just stay away.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am enjoying myself too! It is all going great!

  40. My first year and almost have all posts written. Fun to see other words than Easter for E, lots of Goals for G but I am learning stuff and making lots of new friends, thanks

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wish I'd known about the Challenge earlier so I could have had some posts written ahead. But despite the crazy pace, I'm keeping up and loving the challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Help! Again!
    I tried all the links provided to me to assist in getting to the complete blogger list and none of them take me to a complete list, just promos, links to the facilitators, etc. How are other bloggers getting there? What am I missing?

  43. You can do it! I know you can. Just remember that it's all for fun and networking.

  44. Wisewebwoman -- It sounds like you're at the right site. Go to the top of the main page and under the title header, click on the tab that says "2012 A to Z Sign up List". You should be taken to the page with the list. There is more helpful information on the other tabbed pages as well.

  46. Well, I made it to the end of the first week. OK, everything should be easy from now on, yes?

    *I wish*

    Still, I'm having fun on this, my second year. Having a theme should have made it easier - but then my theme mutated on my very first post. Ack!

    But it's been a lot of fun visiting other members of this crazy tribe.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I didn't get in the linky, but I am loving this challenge. Thank you for doing it!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I survived but not without a little pain. For some reason today's post wouldn't allow comments. I deleted to template, built a different one, same thing. Finally deleted and re-added the blog post, now folks can finally comment. Never a dull moment.

    Okay, off to write my N entry...gotta stay ahead to keep up!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I've noticed a great response at my blog since I started this challenge. I used to think that blogging 5 days a week would annoy my readers, but they seem to think it's "Great," too! What fun!

  53. I love this challenge so much. Not only is it increasing my knowledge of women in literary history via my creating within my own challenge, it is stretching my creativity in other ways, too. Very very grateful... (and I love connecting with everyone else!)

  55. Indeed am having a grand time so far (if I haven't said so already, lol...I may have. What I am enjoying most is expanding my horizons and reading blogs I might not seek out and therefore find, but love the content and want to keep reading. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Finding something to blog about using the letter prompts has been easier than I expected so far. I just hope it keeps up as we get further along in the alphabet!
