X for Xiexie and Xenium #AtoZChallenge 2023

#AtoZChallenge 2023 letter X


Definition: a remark showing gratefulness 


Definition: something presented to guests as a farewell gift  


The A to Z team is grateful to every blogger who took part this year. The alphabet is nearly over! Here is the badge for anyone who feels they have earned it, as our farewell gift for this year. (Don't worry, Y and Z will still post. As well as Reflections and the Road Trip!)

Winner Badge

#AtoZChallenge 2023 Winner

March 10, 2024, will be our next Theme Reveal.

Mark it on your calendar now. 

On May 1, Arlee will post the REFLECTIONS sign-up. It's important to let us know how the challenge went this year, if you feel the team has been RESILIENT at keeping this international bloghop going, what went right, what went wrong, anything you wish was different, how being part of this blogging community impacts your blog and social standing, and whatever else you want to share. 

Also, if any brave graphic artists/ talents out there wish to apply to do the 2024 graphics, leaving a suggested sample in your reflection would be cool. (It is a LOT of work. There are close to 40 graphics to produce and get approved by the team. Plus the Instagram platform to run.) Our anonymous helper this year opted not to share their information because of the increase in graphics complaints since Jeremy died. It's not a gratitude-heavy volunteer position. HTML and Blogger platform knowledge is a huge bonus. 

Follow us on social media all year, because we have fun posts planned.

Thank you, J for some new (to me) X words! Also thanks to all the team for being organised and planning well ahead. Many thanks also for the graphics, which brightened up my posts and many others.
My X word is not very original:

X is for Xanthic

Great words! My X word today is the most basic one that pretty much everyone knows.

Jennifer (UnfoldAndBegin) said...

Xiexie is a word that I could have used with my motivation theme. I went with Xanadu instead.

Here we go again, X for the X-Men

It's really sad to hear that people complained about the graphics. I can't imagine having that job on top of a regular job and trying to do their own blogging page. Whoever the anonymous person is THANK YOU! I think you did a GREAT JOB with the graphics. I was looking at food that begins with an X but I didn't have any so I made up my own XTREME Chicken and as far as writing the devotion for the challenge I just put on my X-Ray Vision . I can't believe the end is so near.

Congratulations to everyone who has made it this far.
