When I decided to join the Blogging from A to Z challenge, I knew it would be a busy month! I usually post a blog once or twice a week, and here I was committing to posting Monday through Saturday for the entire month of April.
It was a lot of work, but I had a good time writing the posts, visiting other blogs, and making some new blogging buddies.
I heard some bloggers actually wrote many if not all of their blogs ahead of time. Not me. I did have a theme—creativity—and I did have some of my topics figured out. It wasn’t difficult for me to come up with each topic, though, and often I changed to different topics than the ones I had planned.
Some of the topics required research, so those took longer to write than others. But I like doing research, so that didn’t feel like a chore. And I hope my readers enjoyed the posts and maybe learned a thing or two!
I didn’t have any real technical issues with the challenge. The only thing is I did have trouble posting to some of the blogs. The A-to-Z Challenge Team suggested that bloggers turn off certain tools that restricted comments such as the captcha. Personally, I find this can be irritating when I don’t get it right the first, or second, or third time…well before that I’ve given up and moved on. On other sites, I had a hard time seeing where to leave the comment. Maybe I missed something, but on some sites, I figured out if I “liked” the blog (which I don’t mind doing per se), the comment section would appear.
