Gab’s A-Z Two CentsPosted: May 2, 2011
I loved this challenge. I seriously had great fun doing it and am looking forward to next year already. Not having done a blog before, and literally using this challenge to kick start it (I’d only done one post previously), my page is very vanilla, with no fancy trimmings, links (I don’t even know how to do them), colour, etc.
Maybe because of this I don’t have any followers, or maybe it’s because my writing really is shit and I should take the hint. I did not prepare any of my posts (except for the letter P), but rather typed them on the fly. I usually blog after 8pm at night, so time is limited in that respect. I’m happy that I got up the courage to post my stories even if the response (at this stage – I’m forever hopeful), hasn’t been huge.
However, I’ve had a decent number of views over the course of this challenge and of the comments I have received on my blog have all been genuine and very encouraging and I thank those people for leaving them.
A couple of times I struggled with content and towards the end, my enthusiasm did wane, but having come so close, I knew I just had to finish. One regret is that I didn’t get to read enough blogs during the challenge, much less comment on them. I hope to rectify that in the coming weeks.
Thanks again for the challenge and for the encouragement both from new people I’ve met online and my existing friends. I’m grateful to you.
