My A-Z Blogging theme was to cover 26 touch-me-not categories of fiction writing. Overall, it went better than I expected, especially since I had to write a fiction section and a nonfiction, reflection section for every post (and I had none of them done ahead of time…what was I thinking?).
The biggest change from last year, for me, was the lack of a list. Some bloggers had running lists of A-Zers who were doing a fiction story as their theme, but it was hard to keep track of what story was where, for me, since I didn’t have a list to work from. I couldn’t scan down the same page, day after day, and remember “Oh, I want to look in on this site that’s above my own entry by about ten or twenty blogs” or “I want to visit my neighbors” because every day, the list’s order and the “neighbors” would change. I understand that the list was hard to maintain and full of broken links and false blogs who were really interested in advertising, but I missed it all the same.
I’m still trying to track down all the blogs I enjoyed and wanted to catch up on. (But some of that may be my fault, as this April, I hardly had time to write my posts, much less visit everyone as I wanted to.) What with kids not feeling well and my dog eating butter, it was not the best of months, but it was still fun, and I plan to be back next year. 🙂
