  5. I still have to complete R-Z and am feeling slightly panicked! This is my first time participating. In hindsight, I should have written ALL the posts ahead of time, to allow for busy periods off line.

  10. I felt fairly overwhelmed and panic stricken for the two weeks leading up to the challenge and then the first two weeks of the challenge... But I realized how doable and great this is, I feel like a born again blogger! Can't wait to do it again next year! :-)

  14. Woo-hoo! There is no way I will make it through all of the blogs on the list but I'll be back here to keep checking them even beyond the challenge. It has been tough but I have enjoyed this and have learned a lot about others and.... myself. :)

  15. Last year, my O was for Obsession, because this challenge really is! Gonna finish this thing, who needs sleep, anyway?

  16. I have all those posts written and ready!

  17. Of Course! Panda ON!

  18. Oh boy! One is not the loneliest number when you are doing A to Z challenge with thousands.

  19. Almost there....I have to say, this was much easier once I had a theme in mind. Glad I tried my first A to Z! I've stumbled upon so many interesting blogs...this has been WAY fun :)

  20. Thanks for the encouragement, MJ! I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, and it's not the train heading my way...probably because my theme is that I'm on a train ride...
    All systems still go...all posts still needing to be written, but one day at a time! Just keep swimming...
