W is for...Winning & Warriors

As Charlie Sheen would say...Winning!  (Geez, that's SO two years ago...)

We're almost to the end now. Hang in there. You've got this!

Congratulations on making it this far. And if you didn't? You still deserve congratulations for going outside your comfort zone and giving a challenge like this a try. Either way, don't let yourself get discouraged. Let's make it through these last few days together.

You're all Warriors for taking on this challenge. Let's keep that momentum going!

How are ya'?

May you find your Muse.

Has it really been 2 years since he said that? Wow time sure does fly. Kind of like this challenge. How can it be over already?

Danielle said...

It's been a blast and I can't believe it's almost over!

Tammye Honey said...

Wow it is so hard to believe we are at W.

Thank you for a wonderful opportunity to Explore YouTube for music that I had never heard of before.

JoJo said...

Hanging in there!

Rhonda Albom said...

I think next year when I pre-write I will do a few for each week, so when I get this close to then end, there are still some left.

Hi Shannon,

You probably realise that even though I would never participate in the alphabet challenge, I've been promoting it via my anarchic alphabet alternative.

I do wish you and all those who involved themselves in the A to Z, much positive interaction and fulfilment.

I'm a warrior for being a non-conformist. I'm well, thank you. How are ya?

A peaceful weekend to you all.

Gary at the Z to A...

My post today was actually all about warriors!

John at The Bathroom Monologues

Ann Hinds said...

As a non-blogger who had no clue, this has been interesting. What is even better is the blogs I've found that interest me and I will follow beyond the challenge.

liz young said...

Why is the end so damn difficult - ask you - UVWXYZ - can't we just cut them off? Some of us have got other work to do!
and nobody's looking at my blog any more which is disheartening.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

I feel like a winner. Congrats everyone who got this far.

Ali said...

I'm totally set to win (aka complete the challenge!) Huzzah!

I sooo wanted to quit last week, but I pushed through the week and this one, too. So close now!

Andrea said...

Hanging tough for a big finish!

Jo said...

It's not the blogging it's the visiting.


Rebecca M. Douglass said...

Just about there. . . Z is okay, but Y is going to be a stumbling work in progress by Monday.

And visiting? Well, I've been back to most of the ones I subscribed to early in the month, and I'm returning visits. That's something. I can keep visiting people after the Challenge ends!

Yvonne, woo-hoo!

Stefani, I think so. Funny how fast things shoot into the past, isn't it?

Danielle, it has!

Tammye, I hope you found some great things!

JoJo, keep going!

Rhonda, you mean you pre-wrote them all and wish you still had some to write?

Gary, I'm doing okay. Thank you for asking! :)

John, because warriors rock!

Ann, I'm glad you've found some good ones!

Lizy, ha! Wouldn't it be easier if we did? Why are most of the hard questions crammed onto the end? I'm sorry no one is visiting. At this point in the game, I think a lot of people are just struggling to get their posts up and trying not to burn out entirely.

Sheena-kay, you are!

Alison, continued good luck!

Priya, I'm glad you did, too!

Rowena, after the challenge and other things I've been frantically up to this month, I feel like I'm going to go into stress withdrawal!

Jen, I agree! So many great people participate each year, and there are so many new blogs to discover.

Bill, you can do it!

Desert, I feel ya'!

Mel, it is, isn't it?

Melissa, now that's a good "W"!

Pheno, we are!

Joy, I don't know, either, LOL!

Kristen, that's wonderful!

Dawn, it's too late to quit, keep powering through!

Andrea, yes!

Shannon Lawrence said...

Jo, true!

Rebecca, that's the best time to do it! We'll have a follow-up challenge just for that, but one that is far more laid back. ;)

The challenge flew by so fast for me. I can't believe it's already over, but at the same time, WHEW! It's almost over! It's been a challenge keeping up with all the blogs I've found.

Lisa said...

I'm sorry it's almost over, but so glad to have participated. I love the A to Z challenge, helps keep my head on straight!
