IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Tenth Anniversary of the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge after survey opens on May 3, 2019. Reflections open on May 6.


Monday, April 29, 2013

Yep, that's all folks!

Tomorrow is the last day of the challenge. Did YOU survive? YES? Oh good, but wait, there's more!!!!! 


The A to Z Reflections Post!

        This tradition started with the very first Challenge in 2010 and has continued every year since.  Some of you may be wondering what this Reflections post is all about, so I will tell you.

        On Friday May 3rd an A to Z Reflections Linky List will go on line for you add the link to your post of your Challenge reflections.  This is the time when you can share your thoughts about the Challenge.  Tell all of us your likes and dislikes.   Let us know how the Challenge benefited you and what aspects bothered you. 

         You can also share highlights such as new blog discoveries you made, certain posts that you enjoyed, or things you learned from other bloggers.  The Reflections post is your time to tell us what's on your mind about A to Z so we know what we did right and what we should change next year.  Also you can feel free to provide any ideas that you think might enhance future Challenges.

          When the list goes online, please wait until your post is up before adding your link to the list.  Unlike the Challenge itself, for the Reflections list we want you to link directly to your post.  This list will remain open for the week following May 3rd so you'll have plenty of time to add your link and you can post your Reflections any time during that week.   You can post your Reflections any time after April 30th, but list will not be available to you until May 3rd.

          We look forward to hearing from you.  And this gives you an added week of doing some more visiting.  We hope you have fun and we all become more informed.  Any questions?  Just ask.

Only survived because I read other people's blogs who participated. Great resource of new words :-D

The Reflection Post is actually like the 27th Letter of the Alphabet for me, and since I'm a 'Panster'...thanks DL for that word...it will be written last.

Thanks for the reminder.

A reflections post is a great idea. Lots to think about...

Tina said...

I'm with Jeremy...one of the toughest months of my life health and family wise, but the Challenge and all that work gave me something else to focus on, and it's been a VERY good thing.

Really busy month. Therefore, the challenge was indeed a challenge. However, thanks for offering A to Z. It was fun!

Happy to oblige! It's been a fun and surprisingly smooth challenge. Will type things up for Thursday/Friday.

Almost there indeed. Thanks to the A-Z team for the encouragement along the way.

I bucked a societal norm today :P

Check it out!

Mark Means said...

It's been fun...and challenging...thanks for organizing this thing and I can't wait for next year...

(wait, did I just say that???)

Rebecca Douglass said...

I'd already begun planning one, even before I knew there was an official project!

When do we get our survivor buttons? :D

Rowena said...

yeah... only 'Z' left to go. I will start writing my reflections today. My main gripe is those bloggers that just leave a comment saying 'visiting from A-Z, visit me here and follow me'...with no comment about my blog post!! why bother? (no names mentioned, you know who you are) rant over :)

Christine Rains said...

I can't believe it's over with already! I'll be posting my reflections post. :)

Susan Kane said...

Just finished writing the draft, and now will follow directions! Thanks!

Rinelle Grey said...

Oh yes, I'm looking forward to this. I really enjoyed looking over last years reflection posts when I was trying to decide whether to attempt the challenge or not.

I've been looking forward to the A to Z Challenge ever since last year. It went by really fast! I kept up and learned a lot--about myself and others. Many thanks to Arlee Bird for A to Z, and everyone else who participates!

I knew it would be a problematic month for me this year, so didn't sign up for the challenge. I've been blogging A-Z at my own pace though which has been fun!

I must say I've missed the excitement and camaraderie of beng part of such a large and enthusiastic group of bloggers and would like to contribute my reflections on how this has worked for me. Are the team members ok with that?

nice computer tricks

Kristen Dyrr said...

I had so much fun with this challenge, it's difficult for me to put it into words. It gave me a way to have fun with my writing outside of article writing for work.
