Z for Zealously #atozchallenge 2023

#AtoZChallenge 2023 letter Z

Blog zealously (with great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or objective).
Zealously definition #atozchallenge

Part of being resilient about blogging is staying enthusiastic, or at least faking it. Resilient bloggers have the same hard lives, stresses, and roadblocks as anyone else -- except they have a blogging community to provide a reason to keep making posts, a reliable audience to leave them comments, and a sustainable list of other blogs to visit regularly. If you've just finished the challenge, you should now have all of those!

In a training session, a doctor said just because your patients are resilient doesn’t mean they aren’t suffering. This concept of coexistence struck me. Resilience is often out of necessity, and doesn’t mean someone is okay.

We hope you enjoyed the challenge this year. Congratulations on making it to letter Z. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸŽ‰
You've earned a nap. ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ’ค

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

Mark it on your calendar now. 

Tomorrow, 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 online social standing, and whatever else you want to share. 

If any brave graphic artists/ talents out there wish to apply to do the 2024 graphics, leaving a potential sample badge 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.

We made it! I wasn't sure if I'd make it to the end or if we'd see the Zombie Apocalypse but all went well and I was able to make the Zymurgy Biscuits
Thanks to everyone for playing along.

Made it to Z with all original content, written every day the night before, and it's my first year:
Warning: 18+

Oh, I NEED a nap after combining National Poetry Month with A to Z and traveling out of the country and having hand surgery and... I need a nap. But I promise, I will catch up on reading and commenting (starting with all who visited me this month - we're all tired, and we all deserve the grace to read and catch up in May and June, I think). It's been fun, and it's been one of the few years I have managed to stick with it, start to finish!

I'm glad I did it this year but admit to being disappointed in the post views. On my author blog, the first couple of letters had in the 90s, the last week, in the 20s. My goal was to increase followers, not sure that translated.

My photography blog was a bomb, but I suspect that's because the photo was auto-shared and no one looked at the post to learn about the photograph.

But I'm still glad I did it. And finished both. And found new blogs for me to follow.

DB McNicol - Small Delights, Simple Pleasures, and Significant Memories
My Snap Memories - My Life in Black & White

Happy Happy Z day everyone!
