X-Cellent Finish! #atozchallenge

We're celebrating our Tenth Anniversary here at the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge.

#AtoZchallenge: The blog hop that made an online community by asking bloggers to spend the month of April using the English alphabet as inspiration for their posts. We're glad you stopped by today.


X-Cellent!

This is my last contribution to the A to Z Challenge blog for the 2019 season, so I wanted to take a moment to congratulate all of you for making this year the best one ever. Okay, that might be hyperbole, but if the increase in activity on my blog is any indication, you've all done a terrific job, not just with your posts on your own blogs, but with visiting other blogs and leaving comments, or at least leaving some indication that hey, you were there supporting them.

This has really taken off among a dedicated group of bloggers (that's youse guys, as we say in Chicago) since the first time I participated in 2012. Every year it's gotten better, with more bloggers connecting with other bloggers, making a bigger and better community. A community you've helped create.

There's a link to the Master List for the Challenge below. Be sure and take a minute and make a copy of it for yourself. Most of the bloggers on the list are active all year, some posting daily. Between the end of this year's challenge and the start of the next one, visit some of those bloggers, both the ones you made contact with and the ones you didn't get to visit.

Thank you for making the A to Z Challenge the highlight of my blogging year!

Thanks for helping organize this event. I think I was able to get some creative book photos. There are not many book titles that start with X so I issued a challenge to my followers. Chime in today at Girl Who Reads

My theme for this year was Bollywood cliches. And letter X is always tricky.
But I had a great topic to write about. Read X : XL sized egos of Bollywood Stars

My fisrt time participating at the Challenge, and I loved it! So fun to figure what to say starting with tricky letters (boy, X wasn't easy)!
X = X & +
