Well, I didn’t quite make it to the end of the A-to-Z Challenge, but there’s always next year! Don’t I sound just like a gardener there!
This being my first attempt at the challenge, making it half-way really gives me a goal for next year. Somehow, the challenge really ‘snuck’ up on me. I think that if the reminders started coming sooner, I may have had more time to prepare. I know for next year, I will be starting my posts well in advance of the start date. Trying to keep up with posting daily, and still have time to hop around to other blogs in the challenge, is just a bit overwhelming. And you really don’t realize how overwhelming it will get until you’re in the thick of it!
My stats page proved that participating in this challenge brought traffic in numbers I have never seen before. Over 120 visitors and over 350 views – quite significant for g4t! And for only a half month participation, that’s not bad! I did get to meet a few other garden bloggers who I may never have met otherwise. So all in all, it was worth the half month of stress!
I’m going to have to come up with a really good theme to tie in to my gardening blog, again, thoughts for next year! One thing is for certain, I have a new respect for the bloggers who do it every day, challenge or no!
Whew! Time to breathe! Now let’s get that weeding done!!
