2015 A to Z Challenge Reflections

At the end of each annual A to Z Challenge (that’s what the month of April is all about), bloggers write a post reflecting on the experience.

A year ago, I launched launched Loved As If. This year, I reworked the years between escaping the minister and his crazy family and finding healing. In my book, that period is “Attic Clearing.” I encountered many other bloggers and some of their readers. ‘Twas lovely. Blogging two posts each day, one here and one at Glam Of God, a fashion blog I launched during this year’s Challenge, was hard work. And again, ’twas lovely. I’d do it again. Well, maybe I’ll limit myself to one post or write more posts in advance. The A to Z Challenge is a great opportunity to devote a concentrated amount of time to a writing project even when other things are calling my attention. That, along with meeting other bloggers, is what I love.

I do wish it was easier to follow the blogs. Perhaps next year I’ll program a spreadsheet and tick off the blogs I’ve already visited. Except, I happen along an interesting blog and want to return (or, worse, subscribe) and then I’m overwhelmed. It may not be an A to Z Challenge issue but a personal issue. If I program that spreadsheet, I’ll make it available to any who want it.

Thank you for such a lovely challenge. I’m looking forward to next year. Who knows, I might have a theme.


  1. My dear, I think you have a wonderful theme of forgiveness and gratitude from what I’ve read. Bless you. And thank you for sharing about fashion on GlamOfGod, because I need that help. ~grin~ Best wishes!

  2. I so love reading your blog. Your writing is fantastic! I wish I had more time to read more blogs because I always find other people’s lives fascinating. And I usually can find things I relate to when people open up their stories. With that, subscribing to me can be overwhelming if I have a lot of posts I want to read but don’t have time to always get to during the day. BUT… I do it anyway just in case there is that one moment of free time. 🙂

Tell me what you think. Thanks.
