Reflections of A to Z...

I noticed that there was a reflections post for the A to Z challenge, so I thought I would chime in...

I have some new followers, others now have me as a follower, that is a nice thing. (I really need to do some updating on my blog roll, I realized, two or three of the blogs haven't been updated in a year?  Oh... Kay...)  I am hoping that others joined because they liked my blog, I guess some folks are "Wow, I have X number."


I hope the people reading my blog, ENJOY my blog, if it's 5 or 500... But it is nice to have people interested!

I learned that I can make a blog in less than several hundred words, and that my photos aren't half bad, most of the time... I like doing the longer blogs, but the method of letting the pictures do the lion's share of speaking was a pleasant change.

I find it's very hard to keep an "everyday" blog.  First, I don't always have a topic on hand, unless one wishes to hear about cleaning chicken houses and feeding... I like the 2-3 times a week a bit better, but everyday is a good motivator to light up a few extra brain cells.

I had no theme.  I might try next time to "theme" my blog, but since I sat down and wrote out what I was going to write on each day, and used... 2 of the ideas...  That might not work. (grin) 

I learned a lot about others places and thoughts, and I think that was perhaps the best part.  I hope they were able to learn a bit about me.

I think I am going to continue looking through the blogs on the A to Z website, I was able to get to a few a day, but slacked off some near the end.  I want to see who all, and what all people are about, so I will keep looking...  I hope that I am not the only one.

And, let's face it, I am a blabber-fingers, and this was a fun way to throw some ideas out there!  My personal favorite was this one from Desert Canyon Living, I love ships, and I really love lions, so this was just so cool to me...

I hope all that participated gained something, I know I did!  


  1. I was not an every day blogger before the challenge, so that part of it alone was making me dig in deep. I hope the list stays up for awhile so we can keep checking out others!

  2. Hear, hear! I agree!


  3. Blogs, unless you are making lots of money from them, are a place to just do what you want, daily, weekly, themed or otherwise. They should serve you, not the other way around.

    That's why i play on mine.

    Congrats on more followers of your blog, i'm sure they like it, i know i do.

  4. I enjoy your blog and find your posts to be enjoyable and refreshing.
    I didn't participate in the A - Z challenge. Maybe next year!
    Daily posts are tough. I try, but I don't always make it!

  5. I always enjoy your blog. Congratulations on reaching a hundred followers. You are obviously reaching into the hearts of many people.

  6. Congrats on finishing the challenge! And it WAS a challenge!

  7. Congratulation on finishing the challenge. During the challenge I didn't visit as many blogs as I would like to but, cross my heart, I'm visiting every single one with the reflection post (and I'm almost done)! I am so glad my journey brought me here.

    Evalina, This and that...
