The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge Reflections Post 2014 #atozchallenge

The A to Z Reflections Post is a post presented on your own blog site giving the A to Z Team, the other Challenge participants, and any other readers your thoughts about this year's April Challenge.

We are looking for feedback about the Challenge. Tell us what you liked and didn't like, what worked and what didn't. If you have suggestions about making future A to Z Challenges better, this is a good time to let us know. You can highlight other bloggers who you felt did an outstanding job or direct us to specific posts that particularly impressed you or that you found to be very helpful.

In other words, we want to know how the A to Z Team did and how the Challenge worked for you. If you'd do it again, tell us why. If you would never consider A to Z again, let us know what would make you feel that way.

Please put up your Reflections post between now and Friday, May 9. AFTER your post has gone live, add the link to the Linky List. Enter the link that goes DIRECTLY to your Reflections post and not your general blog address. The list will be accessible for the remainder of this year. Be sure to grab the badge.

The list is intended for A to Z Reflections posts only. Any links to advertising sites or non-relevant posts will be removed from the list. General links added before you actually post will be removed. And remember that these posts will be directed to a diverse audience of varying ages and sensibilities so please respect others by refraining from posting obscene materials or hurtful attacks upon others. We want a productive interchange of ideas that can lead to positive innovation.

Add your link below AFTER you have posted your reflection post!


  1. I was planning not to do one, but I have had an idea this morning but it involves drawing a picture. . . . . . . . do I have time . . . .. we will see.

  2. I had done a reflection post on alphabet 'Y' day itself, so posted that :D its no.59

  3. It has been a treat, now it's time to reflect... thank you all who made the journey! [no.90]

  4. What time did this Linky show up on this blog? I was all ready at midnight CST time, but the Linky was not up. I had to go to bed. I couldn't stay up waiting for it to show. Oh well, now I'm no. 98.

  5. Not sure I quite understand ? I will have to reread it sounds simple but I'm not clear on the directions.

  6. Had my post written and scheduled ahead and am now enjoying visiting and visiting.
    Sandy at Traveling Suitcase where a-z in May continues...hoping I don't run out of gas

    by the way will their be a road trip? I could work around that date if I knew


  8. i will post mine wednesday, with stats of course


  10. Road trip? Did someone mention that? Is it real? I am busy June 20-July 10, but outside those days, I'd love to do that.
    Alex, I would like to edit my title for the reflections, #142. I did not think that my entry would look so milk-toast (haven't used that ever). Let me know if this is possible.
    So you liked Spider Man 2. Okay, I will give it a chance. I forced going to see The Other Woman. Lots of laughter, unwilling husbands. I heard male snoring, even.

  11. My reflection post is up... #158 on Mr. Linky.

  12. I think the A-Z Challenge team did a fabulous job. I think this gave me what I needed to redirect my thinking of where I want my blog to go. It has taken me nearly 4-years to discover what I want to my blog to be about. I guess it's better late than never knowing what to do, right? Will I do the challenge again? More than likely, I will. I had lots of fun joining in and pushing myself to come up with a creative post for each day. Right now, I find that's precisely what I need. Thanks for allowing me tag along. I had already planned to visit those on the A-Z Challenge list now that the hop has ended. Thanks for the reminder to do just that. Have a terrific week!

  13. Can you possibly remove my link so I can redo it correctly? I'm #207 on the list. If not, that's cool. Guess I should've paid more attention to how I entered it. Thanks.

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny, the cordial host of The Alphabark Challenge, 2014! :)

  18. I came. I completed. I reflected: And it was good.

  19. Ah! Too late.... My reflections post is here:
