THANK YOU! I did it! I loved it and will be back. The only thing that disappointed me was when I visited someone and they were far behind the letter of the day. But, that is their journey. Is there a designated day for our Reflection Post? THANKS!

Last year, I didn't think I would make it, but I did. I can say with more confidence that I survived this year's challenge. A lot of it I owe to preparing posts and writing ahead of time. I had some issues with certain topics, but I have to thank social media, specifically Twitter, for their help. This has been a fun journey the second time around.

This was my first year doing the challenge and I had a great time. I laughed, followed on adventures, learned a bunch of new stuff! I wish I had time to read more blogs but I was very happy to follow and interact with the geneabloggers I found and now have some great friends.

Awesome! Here's lifting a glass to everyone that finished—and to next year's Challenge! (This is me in the first stages of A2Z withdrawal :D )

Congratulations, all! It was one heck of a marvelous month.

The month flew by so fast! It was great fun, even though I wasn't fully prepared and had to write many posts on the fly. Congratulations to everyone and a big thank you to Arlee and company. ☺

Right when do we start . . . . . . . . . AH DAMN

Nilanjana Bose said...

The badges just get better and better with every challenge. Thank you to the creator and co-hosts for a massively fun month, and thanks to Jeremy for the ubercool badges. Just awesome!

Patricia Lynne said...

I survived! A few times I wasn't sure, but I did. Until next year.

Ann Bennett said...

It was a fun challenge. You get something different out of the challenge every year.

The t-shirt looks great. I'm at the age where I am downsizing. I hate to buy something to send out to charity. Is there a way participants can donate to offset costs of the website, etc. I have donated to the Downey Education fund.

One thing I have learned when you come across something good is that you need to support it. What I like about A to Z is it is not a commercial, can you bring the high number of hits I want to my blogroll. It's come as you are.

Kala Ravi said...

What a great badge! I will remember the challenge everytime I see the badge. Yayy! I survived! Thanks AToZ for a fantastic month!

D.G. Hudson said...

Love the colour in this badge for 2016. Great work Jeremy! Yes I made it again, although the last 10 or so posts weren't prepped in advance so I stayed up late for those. I'll catch up on sleep now. . . I always collect these A to Z posts into a page and a tab at the top of my blog. Thanks to all who ran the show (hosts, cohosts and minions of every ilk). You guys help make this a success. I still plan to cruise that list a bit. Congrats to all those who finished and those who tried. . .

Woohoo! I made it! Now to read others' posts!

Alice Gerard said...

I managed to finish the challenge! I did manage to fall behind during the third week of April, due to a super busy week. I had to write two articles for the local newspaper, and I worked as an election inspector (5:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.). I don't write my posts in advance. I write and post. I didn't have the energy or the eyesight for two days to write blog posts as well as write articles or do the the election inspector marathon. But still, it was good, and I caught up on the 29th! I'll write more in my reflections post.

martine said...

I coaxed, cajoled and gently persuaded my partner to join in this year... and he finished, and it's more posts than he has probably done in the last three years, and, I like to think, he even enjoyed himself. And I think I know more about him than I did before too.

Pat Garcia said...

I survived and I am happy that I got through it. Thre was a lot going on with me during the challenge. Can't wait to get my tee shirt. I've already got a message that it is on the way.
Congratulations to all who made it through and thanks to all of the team that was responsible for keeping us highly motivated. Many times your encouraging words were exactly what I needed to keep moving.

All the best everyone.

Shalom,

Lori said...

I am a Survivor. What a wonderful experience this has been. I am a first-timer and kicked off my blog by taking the Challenge. I checked out as many other blogs as I could fit into my computer time and made friends and learned about all kinds of things I would have never known about. A great big giant thank you to all behind the scenes who made this possible.

Caz Greenham Author said...

Mine is ordered... Smiles....

I only made it to "M" and then life took over. I am, however, determined to make it through the alphabet so I will press on though April has waved good-bye until next year! Loved the challenge.

This was my first year G R and I must admit to preparing a lot upfront over the Easter weeknd. Learnt a lot although forgot to add links back to wherever I was supposed to, so will do better next year.

Jo said...

Do we have a Reflections logo yet? As I never wear t shirts, not much point in my getting one.

Anoosha said...

We did It . I am so glad I survived this Challenge as I could n't Complete it last time. The feeling you get completing the Challenge is priceless.

sage said...

I did it! I have never done so many posts in a month, but they were all up by 6 AM on the scheduled day. Thanks. Now to figure out how to post the survivor logo--It doesn't seem to want to just fall into where I had the challenge logo at.

J Lenni Dorner said...

Woo hoo! Woot woot.

Liesbet said...

The survivor badge does not copy and paste like the other badges did, which is too bad. I cannot grab it.
