So you're thinking that it's time to wind down with the blogging? April has been grueling for some of you. Some got stuck a ways back and linger on a letter from earlier in the alphabet. But you who endured are ready to hang it up and give it a rest...
Not so fast! The A to Z jig may be up but now it's up, up, and away with better blogging!
Do you feel like your blogging and writing has gotten better during the month of April? I hope so because that's partly what the Challenge is all about. Did your follower numbers go up? They should have if you were networking like you should have. Did your comments go up? Again it's a matter of networking in the proper way.
Bottom line is did you learn anything new in April? About yourself or about blogging? Or how about all of the great information presented in the participant posts? There was a real wealth of learning experience to be had on all accounts.
What's up next? How about the Reflections Post coming up on Monday May 5th. If you choose to participate in this event--and I encourage you to do so--on May 5th you can sign up your link to your post reflecting on your A to Z Challenge experience.
Tell us about how your April went. Offer your suggestions for making the next Challenge better or just let us know what's so great about the way it is now. You can link to your favorite posts on your own blog or those on other blogs. Tell us about blog discoveries you made during the Challenge. What you say is up to you. It's your Reflections Post.
Later you'll want to be watching this blog to hear about the A to Z Post Challenge Road Trip. The Blogging from A to Z Challenge doesn't have to end at the beginning of May. You can stay with the community for the rest of the year. Stay tuned to this blog for more information.
In fact you'll want to keep coming back to the A to Z Blog throughout the year for more updates, more useful blogging tips, and more fun. We will be accepting proposals for guest posts as well. See the contact page for information on how to reach us.
Don't feel down because the April Challenge is almost over. Keep looking up! There's still more to come.
