a to z challenge reflection

i really enjoyed this. i was able to get into things in my own head that i'd not been able to. besides this, i decided today was no caps day. so i won't be using any. i found lots of neat blogs and got to know one friend that lives in my real life a little better. another thing i learned was all the different ways folks use their blogs... there were so many out there. some used pictures every time they posted...(i'd really like to know how they did it...i've got some pics...but i don't even begin to know about where to find images that match what i'm saying.) others had a special task assigned to a particular day, like 10 things, menu planner, debate thursday. this was especially helpful to me as a way to think of creating more writing...a structure if you will. ummm i found out too that it is a lot easier to blog about something than to really talk about it in real life and that that bothers me some. as a blogger i have a persona or something like it that gives way for me to be able to 'fake it.' perhaps you all have me figured out already, but i feel a little funny about the whole talking the talk but really am struggling at the moment with walking it all out. and granted, i realize that because of the nature of blogging, it is easy to do this. what i want to do is strike the balance between too much and not enough.

at any rate, thank you Arlee Bird for the challenge it's been a fun ride.


  1. You did a wonderful job on the challenge. It was really nice getting to know you, too!

  2. No caps day, eh? Just so it doesn't become no punctuation day-- then we'd be in trouble.

    Congratulations for reaching the end of Blogging From A to Z April Challenge. You won, so don't forget to grab a winners badge from my site if you want to display it on yours. You did a great job and was a pleasure blogging with you.

    Tossing It Out

  3. Congrats on finishing the challenge, you did an excellent job.

    Take care.

  4. I so understand what you are saying about it being easier to blog about something than talk about it in real life... I wish my real life lent itself more to having those kind of conversations, but I can't figure out how to make it be so... and it isn't all up to me either. I don't know... but it is nice to know that others out in blog-land feel the same way. I am so glad that you decided to join in on the challenge and have loved getting to know more about you along the way. I hope you will be blogging a little more often! :)

  5. Congrats on completing the challenge. Although I didn't find you until afterwards. There's lots of places to find pics like flickr, stock.xchng. Having only been blogging for two months prior to challenge, I've learned lots of tricks by searching for blogger tutorials.
