|Tina's sunflower as it appeared on April 25th, 2015|
I'm guessing that more than a few of you are feeling a bit like the sunflower pictured above. This flower has managed to make it through April and looks like it will make it to the end of the Challenge. I'm also pleased to report that the majority of those who began the Challenge on April 1st are still hanging it there and will be crossing the finish line at the letter "Z" on Thursday of this week.
At my last count we had lost 328 links from the opening count of 1888 when the list closed for sign-ups. Over 1500 bloggers will finish the Challenge they set out to accomplish. You all are to be congratulated. A few might come up short for one reason or another--we understand that things can happen to derail participants sometimes--but many of those have indicated that they still plan to continue blogging the letters even if it takes them until sometime in May. We honor everyone who at least tried. If you didn't meet the Challenge this year you can still give it another try in 2016.
Hang in there those of you who are blogging until the end! On May 1st be sure to check this site for information about the A to Z Reflections Post on Monday May 4th. This is the annual event where you have a chance to reflect on your A to Z experience and tell all of us what you think of the Challenge. Full details coming up on Friday, but be sure to reserve May 4th on your blogging schedule.
Let's make this final few days the best ones of all. Get your posts up on schedule and try to make as many blog visits as you can. Four more days! Can you believe the end of April is so near?
Do you have your last posts ready to go? Will you be joining us for the May 4th Reflections? Are you just a wee bit weary as we reach the end?
