Go, go, go!

Good job, team, we've finished an octave-worth of the Challenge! (Yeah, yeah I'm a music Geek - forGive me!) How is it Going?

Here are some G things we hope are happening for you at this point in the Challenge:

  • Growing as a writer. How have you challenged yourself? Can you feel yourself Growing?
  • Gathering resources and followers. Who have you found that is really Great? Are you Gaining readers? (and if not, have you been visiting lots of people to help foster those connections?)
  • Gumption! Sometimes it can be a little intimidating to go out and meet people, even online. But we hope that you are Growing in Gumption and becoming more comfortable making bloGGing friends!
  • Goofiness - Have you seen some of the silly bloGGers on our list? We've certainly got some Goofy folks in this Challenge! Hint: Many of them are using the (HU) tag :)


Alright everyone, Go Gallavanting, find some GREAT Guy and Gal pals, and Give it your all!

I am a little shy about “meeting” new people. But, I have been slowly making my way down the list of posts. What I find interesting is the variety and mixtures of blogger personalities. Thanks for the encouragement.

I am really struggling to keep up this year, even as a minion. :(

I am gaining confidence. This is probably the biggest difference from earlier years. Perhaps it is because I changed my topic to be one almost exclusively focused on assisting my blog visitors to become better writers themselves. I didn't expect so many people to be so outwardly appreciative and truly taking action to continue to grow themselves creatively. VERY fulfilling to me to say the least.

Grateful for that!

Go, G, Go!

I'm really enjoying meeting so many new bloggers, both as a Minion and as a Participant. It always blows my mind how many interesting and creative people there are in the world. :)

Hi, stopping by via the A to Z challenge from Petnet.io. We write about pet food, fitness, and heath.

You really made "G" the "star of the dish" as the foodies might say.

Going Great, still under 20 followers but that's okay and visiting plenty of sites each day. Find it hard that some sites have no comments box and I would love to say hi and something about their content but they don't want them it seems. :) Trying not to post too early after being politely told off. I forget we are at least 12 hours ahead of the northern hemisphere. shrug, it's all good. I just blog later in my day. Happy H tomorrow day

I aced goofiness years ago.

Going good so far! I think I've gained around 10 new followers and I've also started following several great new blogs as well :) Having a lot of fun with this challenge so far!

It's really challenging to do return visits to those who visit your blog, plus add 5 new blogs a day... and then what becomes of the regular blogs you follow, you can't just leave them by the wayside... but I'm doing my best!
Having a blast too!

I am participating but don't have you linked to my header or side bar. I am sorry, but don't know how to do it. Just saying so far it has been a challenge coming up with the letters

Jennifer Skutelsky said...

It's a challenge to keep up, but fun too, and I love that we all get to connect and read each other's posts.

Hello again from www.writeonsisters.com:)

ilakshee said...

Enjoying every bit of it. Especially pushing myself. Hope I survive

I am loving every bit of the challenge. All of the amazing people I have come across so far. It's absolutely marvelous!

Joanne said...

very fun and enjoying the creativity. Gobs of gumption, and gazillions of words to read. April is going by quickly. Thanks

Damaria Senne said...

I'm meeting new people, making new friends, finding people I have things in common with beyond our blog topics. I'm also learning a variety of things from blogs I visit. It's fabulous. But also exhausting.

Melanie Stanford said...

I love the word GUMPTION. It's awesome. This is my first year doing A-Z and while it's a lot harder (and more time consuming) than I thought, it's been fun so far!

I'm enjoying this challenge a lot. Sometimes I do go blank, but it is inspiring me :). http://worldruler007.wordpress.com/

Kevyn Knox said...

This has been a fun challenge so far. Lots of new readers stopping by my place. Oddly enough these new visitations abruptly ended today (not a single comment left on G-Day) but I'm sure they will be back tomorrow. I'm always the optimist.

See ya 'round the web. All Things Kevyn.

I had some posts written in advance now I've used them all up! I had a very busy week though so it was a good thing I did that.

Stephanie Faris said...

I've been visiting a lot--I'd say about 1 out of every 10 I comment comments mine...but that's normal. Once someone comments mine, I keep reading theirs and commenting, so I forget about those who don't reciprocate pretty quickly.

Manjulika pramod said...

I have been growing, wanting to become a writer and ofcourse the challenge is helping me to make online gal pals.. Cheers!

Its been a awesome challenge so far!

Sheena-kay Graham said...
