The Yes Game #atozchallenge

#AtoZChallenge 2021 April Blogging from A to Z Challenge letter Y

Can you keep your blog going all year? YES
Can you spend the rest of the year visiting every blog that signed up in April? YES
Can you use what you learned this month to make your blog more appealing? YES
Can you promote your blog by giving readers more of what they want? YES
Can you double-down on more self challenges for your blog this year? YES

Yes, I continued with the challenge through painful hands but also to say "Yes" to myself that even during a world crisis I can still do some normal things in life.

Have a good day.

Susan Sanderson said...

Yes, unless there is anything of higher priority to do. Already mulling over what I might do for next year's A to Z.

Frewin55 said...

Yes! I have those intentions, though I realised that writing the blog posts and promoting them takes me 1.5 to 2 hours each day and finishing the book went out the window, so I will spend more time writing the book with the ongoing energy I have gained here...
Meanwhile, perhaps appropriately to these promises.

Going to be hard... but yes. Will try my best. :)

Crackerberries said...

YES YES YES .... I'm so excited to challenge myself to all of these Yeses.
Y is for YOU and even though you try sometimes, You Are Not the CHRIST

Cathy Kennedy said...

Okay, YES, I'll be back next year for another round of the challenge and I'll be better prepared, too. :)

Great list, and YES I will be back for next year’s A to Z! Meanwhile, Y is for Youth job at the Altamont Fair

Trudy said...

Yes, I plan to keep my blog going (not daily though!), and I plan to do the A to Z challenge again next year!

My post today is about the same topic!

Movies reflect human needs: Yes to opportunities.

Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes is my answer. It has been great being part of the AtoZChallenge.

Yes, YOU Matter.. I learned this the hard way after growing with a list of things that never included me.

Lisa said...

Yes! I'll be back next year. I have a question for other bloggers -- if your comment comes into my inbox and you have an email address, I have been replying that way. Do most people prefer that way or should I be replying to every comment on my actual blogpost rather than email?

Beth said...

I have really enjoyed my first A to Z and YES, I'll be back next year!

Pr@Gun said...

Yes, I will be back for the AtoZ challenge next year... hopefully

My answer is Yes to all. And hopefully, I will come next year as well. This year's challenge was a greeze. :)
