Alice, I need your help.
And why would that be Wendy?
Because I've got to do a Reflection post for the A-Z challenge and it would be good to have your input.
Oooh goody! It's about time you did a new post. Your readers must be thinking you'd fallen down a black hole and taken me with you.
No such luck Alice.
Anyway the A-Z team have given some pointers on things to include so I suggest we just work our way through them together.
Hmm that sounds boring and a bit like hard work Wendy.
Don't be rude Alice. The A-Z team put a lot of hard work and effort into making the challenge a success and they are to be appreciated. Anyway this is the list:
Hmm well some of that is easy Wendy although there won’t be any meditating going on here. And the challenge had no impact on your social media as you don’t do Twitter and you keep your blog completely separate form Facebook and Instagram.
As for chats? Do you mean to tell me now, when it’s far too late that we could have been chatting with other people about the challenge during the challenge?
Well yes Alice but I felt that was a bit beyond me and I’m not sure if the timing was right.
You just didn’t want to let me have a voice did you?
Well that might have been a bit tricky Alice as only I can hear you.
Ok. Point taken. Now what about your stats whatever they are?
Short for statistics Alice. The blogging platform provides details on things like page views, comments etc and mine were definitely up for April but as I really only blog for my own satisfaction I never really take any notice of them.
Right. Moving on. I think the new graphics person did a good job. Hard stepping into someone else’s shoes. Actually Wendy you’re right. The whole team do a great job. But how do they find the time? You’re retired and have lots of time but still struggled to get the posts done on time once you caught up with yourself.
Well taking a holiday during the first week of the challenge wasn’t ideal and yes I was winging it most days after that. And once again I haven’t managed to visit as many other blogs as I feel I should have. I did manage to visit people who’d left me comments and I have started working my way through the sign up list. There just never seem to be enough hours in the day.
Gaining more grandchildren hasn’t helped Wendy but at least you had me to provide your theme and give suggestions, even if I was just resurrected from 2019.
Yes but now I’ve resurrected you I don’t think you’re going back into the recesses of my mind anytime soon Alice.
Oh no Wendy. I’m here to stay which I know will please many of your readers.
So there you have it. A reflections post done in the style of my A-Z posts. This is my 8th completed challenge, once again by the skin of my teeth on quite a few days. Forward planning is still not my strong point. However, enthusiasm for blogging has revived and satisfaction gained from doing more than just waffle or doing regular memes.
Thank you to everyone, old and new, for your visits to my blog and the lovely comments. Apologies if I haven’t made it back to your blog yet, I’m working on it.
As for Alice…..well you definitely haven’t heard the last from her.
