Blogging A-Z 2018 Challenge was my first blogging challenge. I was so pleased with myself when the twenty-sixth day arrived, and there were twenty-six posts! Usually, my attention span to daily tasks that do not impact anyone but myself tends to be short-lived. Therefore, diets and exercise routines easily fall away. This success was a big boost to confidence.
The theme was a perfect fit for me—Food Stories Remembered. The daily blogging confirmed the adage “write what you know”. If I can keep to what I can speak to, there will always be volumes to write. The challenge proved this truth.
I enjoyed exploring other blogs and meeting new writers. Many were very focused on their mission which inspired me to think hard about my blog and where it should/could go. There is so much to learn.
As crazy as it may sound, I can’t wait to do it again. I do have a year or so to come up with a theme with endless possibilities. I am also looking forward to placing a survivor badge on my sidebar widget. Who doesn’t love a well earned trophy?
I’d like to thank everyone who commented and offered kind feedback and musings. I know reading through blogs and thoughtfully responding takes time and effort–a big commodity. Thank you, Everyone. And big hugs of gratitude goes out to the amazing A-Z team who pulled the challenge together. Great work!
Now I need to get back on track with my other projects and responsibilities. My new one is to blog consistently. Happy writing, all.
How did you do during you’re Blogging A-Z Challenge?
Welcome to my Blogging A-Z April 2018 Challenge. My theme is Food Stories Remembered because there is always a story when food is involved. I consider myself a good home cook with a great appetite for hearty food. I have witnessed the creation of favorite recipes in friends’ kitchens and have learned from the best—my mother, grandmother, and mother-in-law. Recipes may be included. I am remaining uncommitted on this because when I cook, I seldom measure. If you try any of my recipes, you are cooking at your own risk. Grab a glass of wine. Hope you’re hungry!
