I am so glad that I decided (yes, that is what we will call that impulsive mouse clicking I did) to participate in this year's A-Z blogging challenge. Setting goals for myself is not a personal strength of mine, but I seem to do well joining in with challenges other people come up with (that do not involve running great distances, of over half a mile). Thank you so much to the hosts and hostesses!
I am not very competitive person, which is not to say that I don't like to win things, but this is the second time I have pushed myself to achieve a blog badge. This amuses my kids. It probably also disappoints them as there is no tangible reward for them to try to
steal share with me.
I got a couple dozen new followers during April, and hope they come back to visit on regular days. I tried to be methodical with visiting other blogs, and then I tried some more. After visiting amongst my fifty closest list neighbors, things just got all willy-nilly. At times I felt badly for judging blogs by their titles, when I decided where to point the cursor. The ipad was a little more random...such tiny font...such large fingers. I think I will actually map out a new strategy now, as hopefully the list will be up for a while still. I was fascinated by the ideas folks came up with for themes! So very creative.
I didn't originally intend to author alliteration avenue adventures (sorry), but for some reason the letter E just brought that on. It was kind of hard to stop, especially since when I asked my mom if it was a bit much, she mentioned she enjoyed it. How could I risk disappointing a number one fan? I used my thesaurus more in those thirty days than in my whole lifetime. It never failed that I would run across, or hear, a really great word within five minutes of hitting publish...every...single...day. It was encouraging as other bloggers commenting started doing so using the letter for the day. It is funny how the end of the alphabet is so tricky...just as you're fighting to finish V, W, X, Y, Z?
Regrets? Not really. Oh, except when I was watching tv late last week and saw a Laverne & Shirley clip talking about "vo-dee-oh-doh-doh". That is letter V gold right there! I'd better write that down somewhere for next year.
