The End of the A-Z Blogging Challenge 2011

I’m a couple of days late, but here is my reflection post.  In retrospect, I think the picture thing was too ambitious for someone who spends all her time in about three places.  Unless you wanted more pictures of my flowers, I feel almost as though I cheated you.

This year’s challenge was really tough.  Work has been a mean bear, plus the stress, plus the second work, plus a kind of a social life, etc.   I struggled to come up with topics.   I would come home and park it on the couch and vegetate for a few minutes before remembering that I was supposed to post.  The worst part was not having time to read many posts from other participating bloggers.

It got away from the pictures and back into writing again.  I think that is good.  I don’t want to lose focus too much.  If I want to play around with something else, I can always start another blog.  The thought produces a mental “Gah!” right now, but it’s something I’ve been considering, since the current novel is kind of stalled.

I need a break.

In less than a month, I’ll be traveling so hopefully I’ll have more pictures for you.  There’s at least one picture I plan to get that I didn’t get last time.

Here’s a toast to all those who participated in the A-Z Challenge!  We made it.  See you next year!

  1. Don’t beat yourself up over it. You did a fine job. I have to admire those who blogged from A to Z and were working a job as well. Congratulations for making it to the end of the Challenge and I’ll join you in that toast.
