New Year 2024 Bucket List of Blogging Goals #AtoZChallenge


Happy 2024!

Blogging proclamation for 2024: 


That's the challenge put forth to you, a suggested New Year's Resolution, a goal, or a Bucket List item. 

What do you want? What would make a blog your favorite? Is it just the blog, or is it the blogger behind it? 

Do you love blogs with daily, weekly, or monthly posts?

How about blogs with lots of pictures?

Maybe your favorite spots are where someone replies to comments? Or reciprocate by visiting your blog in turn? Perhaps it's where a blogger has created a community? 

There is no right or wrong way to become a favorite blogger. Make a list of what you'd want in an ideal blog, and then do that. 

Maybe you'll find that your favorite blogs are ones that review products or recommend books. Or blogs where authors are interviewed. Perhaps your favorite blogs will be ones that normally get more than fifty comments a post. It could be blogs filled with poems. 

Refer back to the 2023 Master List. Look at the different categories. Check out what other people are doing. Take notes about what you love most. 


It's a new year. That's the best time to remake your blog. Turn it into your own favorite. It's a great way to renew your passion and get the attention of your ideal audience.

Looking Back...

This is my first post of 2015. I love that I am sharing it with you, my fellow A to Zer’s. As I sit here, propped up in bed after a day on the road, the last of my “holiday travel” I have no clue what to write about. I want to give amazing advice, wonderful words, be a meaningful model but all of that falls short of what my heart is full of right now. What my heart is still “digesting” is how lucky I am. I had a wonderful time with my family over the last few weeks, and with loving friends. Connections were made and previous ones renewed. I go into this new year with a feeling of hope and of being loved after some really hard moments in 2014. I know that I am not alone in my hopeful feelings, but I am also aware that not everyone was as lucky as I was in 2014. So if I have one thing I will take away from last year and all its trials and joys, that one thing is that I am grateful, I am honored, I am aware and want to share the blessings I have been given. I know we are often told, "don't look back," but I hope that as you begin your new year you do have a moment to, instead of only looking forward or making new year’s resolutions, look back and think on what you have learned from the last 365 days, what you might have to offer to the universe for the blessings you had, or if your year was not so great, that looking back might give you the strength to make this year better. A new year is upon us. 365 chances to make good. I’m going to do my best to make something I can be proud of with those chances. This post is, I hope, a good example. Because for someone who didn’t know what she wanted to say here this time, guess I found something to write about after all.

Happy New Year!!!   2012 Is Here!

A to Z Blogging Challenge
Day 26 - Z

We’re finally to ‘Z’ in the A to Z Blogging marathon. I wasn’t sure I could pull it off – don’t go there – but here I am, at Zee. One thing is for sure - Zee is not final. It’s not an end in and of itself. It’s a stepping-stone to another level, one that I feel challenged to attain. Zee is having kept the commitment to complete the challenge and looking forward to next year.

The 2011 A-Z Blogging Challenge brought bloggers from all over the Internet together. I stopped by the blogs of writers, gardeners, movie lovers, chefs, moms, music lovers - you name it, the bloggers were there. How wonderful to have a glimpse into the lives of so many and see how the things I love are shared by others.

Sadly, the A-Z 2011 Blogging Challenge has to end. Zee must be met for this year and I must get back to zee writing. Thanks to everyone who stopped by Between the Keys, especially those who decided to click the follow button. I hope you’ve gotten a smile or two, or at least been entertained in some fashion.

Will I do the A to Z Challenge in 2012? It depends on where I am in my life to some extent, but I plan to regardless of those unexpected things the future may bring. I'm already plotting and planning, on the lookout for interesting topics for all the letters. Perhaps I'll even blog on one central theme. Check back and see.

I need to keep going toward my goal of a better me, to remember that no matter how hard I work or how much I learn, it’s likely my best will always be out there ahead of me, in the undiscovered country. I’ll make it there, someday. Rest assured I travel a path that allows me to enjoy the journey.
