Since the first Challenge in 2010 an annual tradition has been established for A to Z participants or followers to provide their thoughts on the Blogging from A to Z Challenge of the current year. The time has come! Now we want to hear what you have to say about the past month's blog Challenge.
The premise is very basic. Give us your opinion about how the 2017 Challenge went for you. Provide your overall observations about the 2017 A to Z Challenge which can include your favorite blogs, outstanding blog posts you read during the month, your favorite posts from your own site, and whatever else might have been particularly rewarding to you.
It's okay to include some bad with the good. We want to know what you really thought about the 2017 April A to Z. Let us know what you liked the most, but also what you liked the least. And most importantly perhaps for this year, let us know how not having a Linky List worked (or didn't work for you). Did you have any problems finding participant blogs in the A to Z Blog comments, the A to Z Facebook page, or elsewhere?
Next year would you like to see the A to Z Challenge be conducted with the same social media strategy or would you prefer us to bring back a Linky List? Or do you have some ideas that might work even better?
Your Reflections Post can cover anything you'd like to say about the Challenge. We are looking for your kudos and criticisms alike and even more importantly, we want to hear your suggestions for making future Challenges even better.
Ready, Set, Post!
Some of you already have put up your Reflections at your sites. Or you still might need to compile your reflections for the 2017 Challenge. Whenever you have your link ready then spread the word just as you did for your April A to Z posts. Please include your link in the comment section below, but don't forget announcing it on the A to Z Facebook page, Twitter (#atozReflections or #atozchallenge) and anywhere else you'd like to tell the world that you have your Reflections on the 2017 A to Z ready to be pondered.
Be sure to check out as many of the other Reflections posts that you can to see how your observations compare with the other participants And don't forget to grab the A to Z 2017 Survivor Badge to show off at your blog site!
Please Take the Survey
Also co-host J. Lenni Dorner has put together a survey where you can tell us what you thought of this year’s challenge: what worked for you, what didn’t work for you, what you’d like to see, etc. It’s open until May 20, so you have a couple of weeks. Take the survey here. This will also be of great help to us.
