The A-Z Blogger's Mantra for Victory Lane

V is for Victorious!
Victory Lane is where the magic happens. It's that last stretch of road where you start to realize you have what it takes to master the art of blogging everyday....and through the alphabet, no less. It's where you begin to feel proud for signing up for such a huge undertaking, in the first place. It's where you realize that most other things on your to-do list and other people in your life that were neglected, just to keep up with everyone else in this April blogathon, are what helped you get this far.

You’re not alone.

More than 1,500 people are in victory lane, including some who are managing to rock this year's A-to-Z challenge with two, three or four blogs. We're all in this 24-hour cycle together, trying to make it through blogging, visiting and commenting without going nuts. Be proud that you’ve been able to get to this point and remember, there's nowhere to go but upward and onward from here, until it's time to grab that 2015 A-Z Survivors Badge!

If for some reason you feel like you're at your wits end, just read the following mantra:

The "Survivors" Mantra for Victory Lane

You're a survivor.
You're not gonna give up.
You're not gonna stop.
You're gonna work harder...because you're a survivor.
You're gonna make it.
You will survive and keep on surviving.

If these famous words helped Destiny's Child reign on the Billboard Charts, then they can get you through the remaining days left to blog April. So, pat yourself on the back because making it to victory lane is an indication that you're strong enough to be in this for the long haul. It's a sign that the blogging muscles you've been building up so far are what will help you continue on to the very end of the alphabet.

How well are YOU flexing your blogging muscles this month?

Are YOU starting to feel Victorious yet?

    This A to Z has completely ruined my commenting technique . . . Ho Hum

  2. Trial three with this comment.

    Having been warned, I did not get my posts done early. I'll whip out or polish the last four tomorrow and hopefully browse and rebrowse many posts. Gone is my wish to make it to all. Maybe next year.

  3. Yes, I am feeling very victorious! Thank you! Thank you all!


  5. I thought of posting about our victory for making it this far. Glad you did it though. I feel inspired just from reading the combination of your words with the Destiny's Child song. Nice!

  6. I was worn down and pretty beat this past week, but a good twelve hours of sleep last night has given me new life! I am having more fun this year, my first as a minion, then ever. My T-shirt should be here any day and I can't wait to proudly wear it to work!

  7. I feel triumphant to have participated in yet another A to Z Challenge, but I really should have planned out my posts a month in advance. Next time I will do that.

  8. Nicole, that picture of you is awesome!
    Just four more days.

  9. I'm feeling a little beat up but the finish line is in sight.

  10. I'm almost spent for this week. Luckily, tomorrow's our break and I already did a couple of next week's post. Not much longer now.

  11. I will finish, I will finish, I will finish - thanks for the words of encouragement!

  12. I'm always a bit sad and happy when the challenge is over. It's not the post writing since I get that done early, but the visiting that wears me out.

  13. I'm very pleased with myself, lol. I've got Y & Z waiting to be typed hopefully get them written and scheduled tomorrow...

  14. I truly enjoyed this year's challenge; got my last 4 posts ready to go. I slipped behind on visiting as many as I wanted to but had more work commitments than expected. I'm even starting to work on my theme for next year's challenge and have a few thoughts mapped out :)


  15. Thanks fr your Survivor mantra..
    Victory is what I am looking at for myself..

  16. Been great this far. Hank is here

  17. Hi Nicole .. I think I might be in your MadLab!! But I will be victorious ... cheers Hilary

  18. This A-Z Challenge is one of the hardest challenges I encountered in my entire life! I knew it won't be that easy, but I faced the challenge and did the best I can not to cheat, but I kinda did in the end (hehe sorry) but I'm still proud that I made it! I've already done the last 4 posts, and I'm really happy with what I did.

    Thank you for making this blogging challenge happen, and I'm glad I found it!
    Cheers to all of us! ♥

  19. I was about to ask, "Isn't that Survivor by Destiny's Child?" lol

    I was victorious in that I scheduled my posts, and though I fell off a little on visiting more bloggers, I'm glad I made it this far!
