Y is for Yowza!

OK, so it's a bit tenuous but I'm still expressing my surprise at having completed the A To Z Blogging Challenge. Yes yes there's still Monday's post but that's already written and scheduled to post.

I've had a lot of fun doing it, I've met some great new cyber friends and visited some really good (and the odd strange) blogs. I'll definitely be doing it again.

One of the highlights for me has been the encouraging comments and hearing that one or two folk have been eagerly looking forward to see what the next letter would be about. I hope you've enjoyed it too.

I've also enjoyed the discipline of committing to the blog and being intentional in my approach to it. I'm not sure the 'Schedule' facility will forgive me for abusing it as much as I did but without it I would have fallen at an early hurdle. As you can see from my master list I made some changes as I was going and 'I' was definitely for Indecision! I chose not to blog about my boys for E and J as I felt it was a bit unfair on them. Other than that I just blogged about the things that are important to me. Next year I'll try to come up with a more interesting theme.

What to blog about next?

This post is part of a series in the Blogging From A To Z Challenge, April 2012.


  1. "I" was an incredibly indecisive letter for me also. I ended up with "Internet". "K" was another toughy.

    Congratulations on (almost) completing the Challenge, a wonderful achievment. It has been a trip, but very gratifying.


  2. Thanks Judy!

    It's been a great month and I've really enjoyed it. One of the joys has been discovering new blogs and yours is one I'm now following on Networked Blogs.

  3. I love the theme of your blog - I have done a lot of mountain climbing in my life and am tackling the largest one yet.

    I also like your Y summary, since I am new to your blog.

  4. I'm tickled to have found you and your blog, along with many others that I will continue to follow once the challenge is complete.

    I managed to write 26 flash fiction stories, some of which I will flesh out into longer tales (someday).

    Now, like you, I have to figure out the next adventure for my blog. Oh, and I will be back next year and I will write & schedule in advance. I'm a planner...LOL!

  5. It's hard to believe only one more letter left! My only regret is that I didn't get around to visit as many blogs as I had planned.

  6. It's been a great discipline for me as well. I've never blogged every day before and am in awe of those who do that all the time.
    My "Z" is also scheduled to go live on Monday. Now to get back, to regular blogging.

  7. Congratulations! One of the things I love about this challenge is that it helps me get back into a regular writing groove.

  8. Like last year, I enjoyed the challenge---and loved hosting it even further---it inspired me to visit so many more blogs than I did last year!!

  9. I know - yowza is right! What a challenge it's been to find the right kinds of things. Thanks for coming by my blog - I actually had more of a challenge with Y, for some reason. And haven't thought of a thing for Z. :)

  10. You did well on the Challenge. Congratulations on making it to the end. Hope you will stick around for the Reflections and to see what other fun may be coming our way.

  11. Cheers all! I don't think I've ever had so many comments on one post before.

    Thanks for your kind words Lee, I'll definitely be posting on the 7th, it's been a lot of fun and wouldn't miss it for the world.

  12. lol I don't think it's that tenuous! I know how you feel.

  13. I had a plan for each letter, but abandoned it in week two.
