Well we're now into May, the challenge has expired and it's time to reflect.
What went well? I completed it and posted every post on time. I also managed to add my link to the daily list on 29 of the 30 days. (I think! I know I missed one deadline but I'm pretty sure it was just one.)
What went badly? I wasn't as prepared as I'd hoped to be. Posts for the second half of the month were often rushed and I wasn't that happy with some of them. Mainly because my theme didn't give me a lot of wriggle room on some letters. I had to get creative but I didn't always have the time to do that.
What went really badly? I was rubbish at visiting new blogs. I did try and make sure I visited people who took the time to leave me comments and I think I was pretty successful at doing that. Apologies if I did totally ignore anyone. But I didn't work my way through the list of participants as I have done in previous years.
What would I do differently? I would try and be more prepared so that all my posts were pre-scheduled, giving me more time to visit other blogs, plus keep up with the regular posts and memes I usually follow. I'd also think through my choice of theme to be sure it would work for all the letters or at least how I could get around any difficult ones.
Will I be back? Definitely.
