  11. What a great month! This was year 2 fr me, and while the third time is supposed to be the charm, I can't imagine topping this year in terms of organization, punctuality and therefore the time to visit other participants! Always interesting to see what some of the folks talk about in other months!

  14. We made it!!!!!! What a month...
    But the party isn't over! We do what we call a "road trip" where we keep on trucking, visiting blogs (the links stay live) for as long as we have gas. Nicole, Shannon, and I will be heading up this adventure. You'll hear more about it once the Reflections posts are done. Don't forget to link your profound thoughts starting May 3. We really need your feedback - this year's categories were generated by overwhelming opinion that the list needed them. did that work? What did you learn personally? Etc.

  20. Made it to the end and enjoyed visiting a lot of blogs I wouldn't normally have come across. The project has also revitalised an interest in maintaining the blog going forward - so many thanks for that. I may have a few days off first though.

  21. All posts made on time, a few days delayed making visits and comments while out of town, but was able to catch up. Need to make rounds from 2 more blogs (just finished 1 of the 3)..preparing posts for reflection. Met some good folks, but sure seemed there were lots of folks who just simply didn't visit.

    ReplyDelete
  22. This was my first time doing the challenge and I am experiencing a great sense of accomplishment. I was able to schedule every single post by 8 AM on the corresponding day. Thanks for the challenge!!! Great to meet some new blogging friends and grow in my writing.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I met some very friendly people and enjoyed all the rounds of the challenge. Thank you for organizing such a broad and wacky blog hop!

  24. Huzzah for surviving! I didn't get to visit as many new blogs as I'd hoped, but I enjoyed every minute of the challenge. It's always a pleasure to write myself crazy with all of the amazing bloggers who participate! In a way, I'm sad to see the challenge end if only for the accountability it held over me to post!

    Here's to more great blogging ahead and to next April!

    Cheers,
    Jen

  29. Thank you Lee and everyone involved in creating this challenge. The road trip is over, now it's time to unpack and reflect on the journey. Perhaps even think about preparing for a new one. My theme was healing with words, it is no surprise that the greatest healing of all happened within me. I gained more than I bargained for - thanks

    ReplyDelete
  30. I had a blast and met my goals of visiting and commenting on blogs.
    Thanks for another awesome challenge.

  31. My first A to Z challenge, and it was certainly that -- a challenge, but fun all the same.

    Thanks for hosting! See you again soon!

    ReplyDelete
  32. It has been fun! I can't believe it went so fast!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oops, sorry Jeremy. You do a great blog and I admire you and those involved in the challenge that brings further awareness of the alphabet. However, I hope this is the last one. Personally, I think it's way too much having a month long challenge.

    My best to you all.

    Gary :)

  34. It was fun, it was a challenge and I will certainly do it again. There are some many great blogs out there and I think it will take until next April to get through the list.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've enjoyed it, meeting new people and reading lots of new blogs, and will be carrying on after the challenge is over moving my way through the linky list just to see what I missed.

  36. This was a great challenge. The themes really helped. It was nice to travel to some new blogs and see what interests people.

  61. A huge highlight for me was making it through to the end of the challenge without falling on my head and concussing myself as I did last year. Any challenge that passes without a head injury counts as a win in my books.

    I met a lot of great people this time around, just as I did last time. Thanks for making it all possible.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Yep, had a great time, as always. Visited a lot, always left a comment (when I could locate a place to leave it , also refused to prove I'm not a robot - Please!) I never can read those illegible letters and faded numbers - how about you? Met lots of lovely people. Thanks for being such a great part and supporter of the Challenge. I've been a participant every year, too. Loved every minute of it! Best regards to you. Ruby.
