  5. Yeah! What a day for celebrating! Jeremy sure made us some awesome art! Be sure to grab your Survivor Badge before you leave, and the Reflections one, too, if you'd like to help promote that. Once the linky is up, you can link the badge to the list for everyone's easier access!

  6. Yeah I was finally able to complete the challenge for both of my blogs and I yet I had to do a lot of catching up as I wrote 21 posts in a day to catch up with the challenge. Up to the mid way through I was regular, posting daily and i did make new friends too.

  8. This was my first year participating in the challenge and wow, what a wild ride it was :D Had a lot of fun and can't wait to do it again next year!

  9. Learning from previous survivors sure helped me out--I had never thought of pre-scheduling posts--that sure helped to keep up and have time left over for visiting and making new friends. Thank you, to all the co-hosts. Great job to keep us going. I just hope this isn't the end of a beautiful friendship! Just as my "Z" says...

  10. Yes, I met new friends....and I'll be doing a cover reveal for her on Monday, so hmm, perhaps I can tie that in w/ a refelctions post.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yay! I made it, and this year was easier than the last because I was prepared!! Met some wonderful new bloggers along the way!

    ReplyDelete
  12. YAY!!! Now I believe I will be taking a slight breather from my blog ... until reflection day of course. :)

  13. I almost thought I wouldn't make it through the whole challenge but I improvised and here I am, done! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yes, it was one of the best things I did on my blog! Totally enjoyed it. Just one more post to go. But this time being my first, I think I achieved the first: posting everyday. Networking and making new friends, I definitely could have done much better. Lesson learnt for next year!

  15. Hi Alex and all co-hosts - great to have participated once again ... and apart from a squishy last few days with a dying C drive ... I'm here having posted Z ... and yes I'm pleased my theme worked.

    Wonderful new friends made .. not too many but plenty to read up on and enjoy their blogs and comments .. congratulations one and all ... Hilary

  19. This was such a great experience! I learned so much from so many people and so much about myself. I still need help though--how do I replace my badge to the survivor one? I used a link last time but I don't see one.

    Thanks!

  20. I honestly have no idea how you get around and comment so much. You must be very organized, or never sleep Alex. I appreciate all the comments you had for me and for Faith, as well as all the encouragement.

    Congrats to everyone who finished the A-Z 2014!!

  21. This was my first time here.And I joined in late by 12 days.I did try to compensate by posting 2 posts a day...and boy, it sure was worth the effort!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Very memorable and a definite challenge for myself as I work 11 hour days. Was a good thing we had Sundays off ;)

  42. This was fun. I probably wouldn't have succeeded by posting every day. Instead, I posted several batches. Over the next few months, I will be revisiting some of the bloggers and checking out new ones.

    Thanks to everyone who hosted.

  43. It's been a great ride and all thanks to the team of the A-Z! Thanks so so much. You've all been so great with your encouragements all along. Now for some zzzzz's - at last!
