Reflecting on the A-Z 2016 Challenge
I finished the A-Z Challenge this year. Actually, I’ve always finished. Is that bragging? My theme was dying an odd death. I’m not sure what this says about me, but I’ve never enjoyed researching something so much as I did this topic. I had no idea the amount of people who have died crazy type deaths, until I researched it. I felt sorry for all of them, even the woman in the chimney, although when did climbing down a chimney ever go right?
During the A-Z, my real challenge wasn’t posting every day, but commenting on Blogger posts. I think it was my Internet. Our rural Internet provider stinks big time, so that could have been it. I could read the posts, but couldn’t always comment. Maddening.
The first week, I decided to work from the bottom up and wham many of those bloggers were not participating. That was disappointing. Then there were bloggers that, by the time I got to them, had run out of steam. (I totally understand.) But the bloggers that I did visit, who were still trucking along, were awesome.
I gained a couple of followers. I saw some interesting blog posts. I didn’t feel like people participated as much as they did in the past. Sad.
Over all, it was a good experience.
Did you participate and read or were you read only? What did you think of the whole A-Z challenge? What did you think of dying oddly?
