Is it May already? April flew by, but I have to say, the A to Z Blogging Challenge was a lot of fun. I visited many, many new-to-me blogs and hope to continue to do so. For anyone who participated by posting, reading, or commenting, here is my A-to-Z A-to-Z:
Accomplishment: Three cheers for everyone who made it through!
Books: I have a long list of new books to read.
Comments: Leaving them and reading them is integral to the experience.
Deadlines: Six posts a week = a lot of deadlines.
Enough: Not enough time in a day.
Followers: Also a big part of the experience.
Gamers: I had no idea there were so many game blogs.
Honesty: So many tales truthfully told.
International: The blogging community is truly a global one.
Jewelry: I wish I had your talents, beaders.
Kind: Every single comment I read was positive.
Laughs: I always appreciate a daily dose of humor.
Men vs. women: I think women accounted for more blogs, but I might be wrong.
Next year? You bet!
Opportunities: Networking, connecting, making new friends…
Planning ahead: An excellent strategy.
Query letters: Good luck to everyone trying to master them. Including me.
Recognition: There are a whole bunch of nice blog awards circulating.
Surprise Me!: I love that blog-surfing button.
Thank you to everyone who visited The Writing Bug!
Unique: Every blog is different. Isn’t that great?
Voice: Wise, poignant, funny, irreverent…again, each one is unique.
Writers: Even if you don’t consider yourself a writer, blogging means you are one.
X posts: Tricky letter X resulted in some of the most creative posts of the month.
YA, romance, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery…genres were well-represented.
Zzzzz: Now, a well-earned rest for all the hard-working bloggers.
