A-Z Challenge Reflections Post

The people at A to Z Challenge posted some questions to help reflect. I’m using them as my brain has gone into hibernation following the long month of April.

How did your journey through the alphabet go? Did you meet new bloggers with similar interests? Are there any you would like to feature and share with others?

Some bloggers expressed an interest in reading about Jerusalem. Of those, J.C. Martin was the most vocal.

What were the highlights for you? (lowlights too…we want to hear it all)

The highlights were the comments. Lots of lovely comments from friendly bloggers. Lowlights? I don’t think so….

Did you enjoy posting daily? What was your biggest hurdle? What was your easiest task?

I tried to photograph every place I mentioned. Sometimes time got in the way, but mostly I succeeded. Describing the places was quite easy, as there is no lack of information out there.

Was time management an issue? (I know, silly question, when isn’t time management an issue – but, it is worth reflecting on)

Er… yes.

And what about your content – did you have a theme or did you wing it? Was it easy to come up with ideas for each letter, or were some harder?

I had a theme and plenty of choice for most of the letters. The only hard one was X. I cheated a bit there. There was one place I wrote about and scrapped at the last minute. I was afraid the stories surrounding the place would turn out to be too controversial.

How about commenting – did you stumble upon lots of sites still using word verification? Did this prevent you from leaving a comment? What worked for your blog?

Most sites were easy to comment on. My problem was finding something to say. I read a lot more posts than I commented on. I didn’t visit enough blogs – it was hard to find the time.

What will you do different next year? (Yes, you are doing this next year, you know you are, even if your brain is telling you to run for the hills – it appreciates the exercise)

I’d like to say I’ll schedule all my posts in advance so that I have more time to visit other blogs, but I doubt that will happen.

What pearls of wisdom do you want to share with the Co-Hosts of this event? (We would love to hear from you and know what you think would make this awesome event even better)

Thank you for organising it. It was fun.

Thanks for the mention, Miriam, but I wouldn’t visit so regularly if I didn’t really enjoyed your posts! Your series is listed in my Reflections post as one of my faves. πŸ™‚
