This was my second challenge. Last year I learned about the challenge from a friend at just the right time for me. I’d recently stopped working and needed something to motivate me to get back into blogging regularly. I survived by the skin of my teeth. But I loved it.
This year I decided to plan ahead. I’d chosen my theme before Christmas (London Underground stations) and even planned a schedule for getting out and about to visit the stations and get some photos.
So far so good.
I even began drafting the posts.
I was feeling so pleased with myself.
Then life intervened, a bereavement and illness pushed my schedule way behind and then the weather wasn’t kind to me either. But I was ahead enough to get through.
I had some lovely feedback on my posts and I really enjoyed doing the research. I even took myself to the London Transport Museum to get information for those tricky letters of X, Y and Z. This was great personal development for me, especially as there was a time, due to depression and anxiety, when I wouldn’t even contemplate using public transport let alone travel around it on my own.
Lots of plus points there and of course I’ll be back next year. Hopefully even more organized and therefore with more time to visit other blogs. I managed to keep up with responding to those who left me comments but found it hard to visit new blogs and maintain contact although I have found a few new blogs to follow. Now I’ll be going back to check out some more.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by and a HUGE thanks to the organisers and their minions for making this such a great challenge.
