This is my third year of doing the A-Z challenge. I had high hopes of it being my best yet, in terms of getting posts done on time and visiting/commenting on other blogs, although I knew the first part would be tricky as I was due to be away on a cruise. I prepared enough posts in advance to cover the time I was away and had the remainder part drafted. So far so good.
Then the team threw a huge curveball in removing THE LIST!
Of course there was a big debate over this. I would have preferred it if the list was kept but I could understand the issues the team were having. BUT I also knew I would find it hard to post a link on the days aboard ship.
And then life took another turn. My Grandson arrived - 11 weeks early. I let my published posts go live but I opted out of posting a link on the site as I knew I wouldn't be able to visit and comment on new blogs so it didn't seem fair to invite people to visit me either.
Somehow I managed to finish and publish all my posts with nearly all of them going live on the correct day. I also kept up reasonably well with my regular followers. But that was it.
Did I enjoy it? Yes and No. Yes I was pleased that I managed to complete the posts but No sometimes it was hard and therefore not so enjoyable. Did I feel part of it? Not really but that was my own choice. Will I do it again? Probably but that might depend on how much time that little guy I mentioned earlier is taking up. He is doing really well and we hope he'll be home soon.
