The positive outcomes for me were that as I've not been writing for very long it was a good exercise.
I choose a theme (Memories of Sixties and Seventies) although most of my posts were my own memories, I had to do some research, which I had never really done before.
The feedback I had through comments was that everyone enjoyed my theme, the music brought back memories for lots and even younger people not around at that time seemed to enoy it. I think I will add some seventies music to my posts now and again.
I had such a good time remembering my teenage years, the fashion, the pop idols, the TV programmes and just how I was back then before I became a wife and a mum, and best of all sharing them with everyone.
I visited lots of new blogs and gained lots of new followers to mine. I was amazed at the variety of blogs out there and the many different themes I came across. I hope to have made new blogging friends as I have time now to do regular reading of their blogs.
One of my fellow bloggers had a fifties and sixties theme and we put links to each other on our blogs, I really enjoyed the camaraderie between us.
There was a great sense of achievement when I reached Z and knew I had completed the challenge and I display my survivor's badge with pride.
I will be collating all my posts and putting them under the heading of A-Z Challenge.
Let's not say bad, just the more challenging side of the challenge. Time, really that was all, not enough hours in the day to write and edit and visit all the blogs I wanted to. My time visiting blogs was really taken up by visiting people who had left comments on my site, I thought that was only fair. I did waste some time clicking on blogs on the linky list to find the hadn't taken part.
This was the first time I had taken part as I've only been blogging and writing since August, so I didn't know quite what I was letting myself in for. I had seven posts more or less ready before I started and for the rest of the time I was about two posts ahead but I suppose If they were all ready ahead of time it would take some of the fun away.
THE DOWNRIGHT UGLY
I was exhausted at the end and so glad to see the first day of May on the horizon. I celebrated pressing the "Z" publish button with some wine, just a little not a lot.
From 1966, The Good,The Bad and The Ugly, Enjoy.
