It's time for our A to Z Reflection post. I have to say the A to Z Challenge was so enjoyable this year. I participated several times back in the early years of the challenge. I was still working full time and had a very hectic schedule back then. I always enjoyed it and always completed it, but the struggle was real, it left me worn out by the end of the month This year it was great. I had more time to put into it, and I was more well prepared. I can't wait to do it again next year!
I decided on my theme, Life in Florida, back in March. Before the challenge began, I selected the photos and topics I would use for each letter and then uploaded them to draft posts. I also set the date, time, and title for each just to make things a little easier and more organized. All I had to do once the challenge started was write the actual post each evening and schedule it to post early the next morning. It made the whole challenge feel stress free.
The very best part of the A to Z Challenge is making new blog friends. I have added several from the challenge to my regular blog list. There are others who I visited regularly during the challenge that I'd like to revisit over this next month or so to get a feel for what their blogs are like outside the challenge. Some may simply become yearly A to Z friends, which is great too. I tried to visit a few new blogs from the master list each day, but I didn't get close to visiting all of them. There's lots more visiting to be done during the A to Z Road Trip.
I'd like to thank everyone who followed along or stopped by during April for a visit, and of course I'd like to thank the entire A to Z team for all their hard work and dedication. It was another fun and successful year for the A to Z Challenge!
