Reflections, A to Z, 2014

I had it easy. My simple, fun theme of Guess the Movie was
a breeze because I loved every post.

Since I scheduled way in advance, there was no need to scramble for the next day’s post. I was able to visit nearly 300 blogs. 

There were many comments during the first week of the Challenge. Few at the end. I noticed my participation dropped off as well. I still visited many sites but if the blog was too wordy, if I had trouble finding the comment icon, or the color scheme made my eyes bleed, I moved on.

If the blogger was a day late, I was okay with that. Several days without a post though meant that I took the exit ramp and went to the next entry.

Sometimes I simply didn't know what to say.

My greatest delight was in meeting Sophie DuncanShe made my day.

A big round of cheers for all the participants, the new friends and old. 

And High-Fives to the hosts. 


  1. Hi CD .. congratulations on finishing .. I can quite see you and Sophie and her sister Tasha would all gel - loving the vampire worlds ... and that's what this challenge is all about ..

    Cheers and have a good summer .. Hilary

  2. Your theme was fun! And you visited way more new blogs than I did.

  3. Wow! You visited a LOT of blogs. I bow to you *dipping into a deep curtsy*

  4. 300 blogs? Wow.

    I also didn't bother with blogs that were a few letters behind. I noticed a lot dropped off somewhere in the middle. But a day or two off... at least they were still trying.

  5. I also found a few blogs that I really enjoyed. Unfortunately, the ones I found that were not participating, too wordy, too personal (about politics or religion), or just plain too weird were many...

  6. I guess a solid month of blogging takes its toll by the time we're rolling toward the end of the month. I did meet a lot of good folk along the way.

  7. Egads! 300 blogs? That's really impressive.

  8. i loved sophie too! and i agree on the reasons i didn't comment... thats how it goes. met so many great new bloggers! crazy that there are so many of us!

    you have really transitioned into professional author seemlessly - like you were meant to be here! i'm impressed! and so happy for you!

  9. Wow, that is so impressive!! Congrats on finishing AND on visiting so many others.

  10. Well done for completing the challenge.

    I took the same tactic for visiting as you. There were a few that were behind but which had interesting and engaging posts so I stayed and commented on them. I also felt put off by really long posts. I know I have a tendancy to waffle on a bit on my own posts so that's something I'm trying to work on during my everyday blogging.

  11. Hello there.
    Congratulations on completing the challenge! Thanks for sharing. I'm just stopping by briefly as I try to navigate the twists and turns of the AtoZ Road Trip…don't forget to wave when you see me drive by. (lol)
