My participation in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge was a bit different this year. I was in the Ninja Captain’s army, one of a group of people who checked on a specific number of bloggers to see if they were posting, or were just ad sites.
I think that was a good move by the organizers in that it stopped A-Zers from wasting time at sites where owners signed up to advertise things that were no way related to the Challenge.
I met bloggers with some interesting concepts, including the kid’s learning site that tracks Flat Stanley’s activities and a series of short stories by Fictitious Amo with a little character by the name of Lizzy. Loved C. LeeMcKenzie’s sometimes funny foray into words and their meanings and Lexa Cain’s blog that has some super-interesting information on Egypt. (Can you tell I’m fascinated by the land of Eygpt?) There were others, of course, way too many to list, but I hope to keep the links going.
If I was disappointed with anything it’s that some blogs didn’t get a lot of comments or follows, which makes me wonder if they were visiting and/or whether people weren’t making reciprocal visits. The Captcha sites slowed me down a bit. Some of that stuff is hard to read and takes multiple attempts to get the words right.
Each year, I try to write as many of my posts beforehand as possible, but never get them all done. Next year, God willing, I’ll get those suckers done in a timely manner.
I’m happy the Challenge is at an end. My tail feathers were dragging near the end. Once more, I proved to myself that I can get stuff written if I concentrate, but more than that, the Challenge always brings me some wonderful people I eventually get to call friends.Many thanks to Arlee Bird and his team for putting on the internet’s biggest and best blogfest
