Z to Adieu - See I sort of Cheated There... Okay I did!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here we go the end of another challenge as it comes to a close, another door opens... we can reflect, reflect on a couple of things. A matter of a success, finished a task, found yourself surrounded by new and old friends. What are some of the things you had seen, did you find yourself gravitating towards one or two sites everyday...

Also, did you finish the challenge... do you feel like a winner, well gosh darn it you are winner and what better way to show that. TELL SOMEONE!

May we suggest "AtoZ Challenge Gear"... well okay it's like a t-shirt but there are a few other things to choose from, for all the information please "CLICK HERE".

For now, until next time...

Felt like a winner when I started, it was an achievement to sort out and submit all the posts ready to go out on schedule. I just sat back and watched. Well done every one who finished, many did not

was apprehensive when i started, one post every day and what of Q, X, Z. but managed to finish and enjoyed the journey.

Dee said...

I feel like a winner indeed! I signed up at the 11th hour and somehow managed to complete the challenge. This is my third time! Congrats to everyone who crossed the finish line! :D

Rosie Amber said...

Thank you A to Z for another fantastic round the world trip. Well done everyone who took part.

This was the second year I participated, and this year, AtoZ gave me an outlet that I desperately needed. I will successfully finish the challenge later today, and have especially enjoyed the other blog posts I read with subjects like beer, Island words, special-needs learning, and cats.
Thank you, Mary Wallace, for introducing me to this blog challenge, and thank you so much, AtoZ!!
See you all next April =^..^=

This one was crazy! Work got really busy. I got sick. I didn't write a single post ahead of time!
Yet I made it to the end and never missed a day or letter.

This is my second year to complete the challenge. I learned some ways to improve myself for next year and during it all I think I found a new focus on how to do things on my blog. Oh, it won't be too far from what I'm already doing, just some tweaking mainly. It was a fun ride. Congrats to everyone who finished the task with flying colors! Whoo-hoo!!

Moonie said...

I have finished each year and enjoyed this year the most because I was realistic. I will continue to visit A to Z folks and comment thru next month.
Thanks to each of you who takes the time out to host this event.

Just posted my Z post. I feel like a winner now! I made it through the challenge, and my blog is not even 2 months old now!
I miss it already and am so looking forward to next year's edition.
Now it is time to get my reflections post ready and visit a to z blogs in the days, weeks and moths to come.
Thank you all!

Hoping someone is making an "I survived" badge this year. ;)

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Heather - congratulations and I love that poster, picture, you dressed up .. the zombie Zs ...?!

Fantastic another .. whoever thought the A-Z would take off as it did .. I couldn't do it the first year ... life was too difficult - but now .. it's a matter of course and such fun and meeting wonderful old friends and newbies ...

Congratulations on all the hard work .. cheers Hilary

I loved participating and the process of daily writing. Thank you so much for all the hard work here. :) And Congratulations to all fellow A to Zers for winning this challenge. :)

Trudy said...

This was my first time entering the challenge and I feel pleased that I managed to post for every letter. Whew! It definitely got my creative juices going... my mind has already come up with ideas for the next *three* A to Z challenges.

Ranveer vishal said...

I did, I did and it's the second consecutive year. I am a survivor. Congrats to all participants. And, I was backing out until two good friends saved my life:)

djinnia said...

Congrats everyone! I had so much fun this year.

I made it by the skin of my teeth . . . Again. I will get the hang of not doing down to the wire posts. Maybe next year.

Had a good time and I finished without a problem. Read hundreds of blogs and kept tabs on 50 or so regular ones.

It was a fun challenge. This was my third year participating.

Livia Quinn said...

yeah, you cheated but do we care? I honestly can't believe I made it the whole month. Learned a lot and met some bloggers. Thanks for the challenge.

betty said...

Can't believe it is over! A fun filled month; hectic at times, but lots of good blogs out there; found a few good ones to continue following and even have a theme for next year :)

It is kind of sad to see it come to an end, an end I wasn't so sure I would get to. But I'm so happy I did it and I met some great bloggers along the way. I didn't have a set theme, unless you call Randomness a theme, it is what my blog is all about, so I'm quite impressed that I was able to knock out all the posts. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Marie Moody said...

Thank you for letting me join your challenge, but I guess the party is over! I MADE IT! WOO HOO! I enjoyed myself immensely & I shall be looking forward to the next one.!

Deepti Agarwal said...

This was my first A-Z Challenge (other than OctProWri) and i loved it the core.. it was exciting to read so many variations of thoughts and information .. Yes indeed i found myself inclined towards few blogs which i checked regularly..
Looking forward to another challenges.

This was my first time doing this challenge. I found out about it on March 28 from an online friend's blog, and I was crazy enough to sign up with only 4 days' notice. But I finished!

And some of the other participants have really cool blog topics.

Would be nice, instead of a t-shirt, to have an icon that said "I finished the 2015 A to Z Blogging Challenge!" or something similar to include on my blog, to show I was crazy enough to finish.

Megan Herbert said...

This was my first time doing the challenge and I'm happy I was able to finish. And yes, I did have certain blogs that I had to visit each day and it was interesting to see all the creativity with each blog that I had the chance to get to. Can't wait to do it again next year.

Michelle Wallace said...

-----that's a wrap-----
My fifth A to Z and it was hectic.
It's been the most challenging.
But I made it!
Thank you to the A to Z hosts/team and to all the participants!

Sorry that should have been to Jeremy ... post post fatigue ...
