Another Blogging from A to Z Challenge conquered, and I'm happy with my April presentation.
I met some new steady readers and I hope they continue to enjoy my blog. My theme for 2016 was very short poems for the letter of the day and the impending transition to the next day. I wanted a flow from Apropos to Zeal. I meandered from serious to light (and got folks hungry for waffles). All in all, it seemed as if folks enjoyed the journey.
In turn, I browsed the A to Z list the first week and landed on a selection of blogs that I chose to read every day. I had planned to explore more of the list but was time challenged.
Thus - some new found friends and faves include:
www.nilabose.blogspot.com - tremendous limerick, poetry, and mad writing skills. I'm blown away
www.stephie5741.blogspot.com - she explored unsolved mysteries. Good writing.
www.andrea-maybeitsjustme.blogspot.com - a fun look back at movie soundtracks. Oh we must have been music buddies back in the day.
www.viewsfrombenches.blogspot.com - Betty gave us a tour of Arizona. She brought the heat in a cool way
www.rhymetime24.blogspot.com - Pat Hatt's wacky rhyming ass had me laughing every single day
www.lifeafloatarchives.blogspot.com - I sailed away and learned about living aboard a boat
And I have to give a shout out to two steady faves - Al at Penwasser Place and Robyn at Life by Chocolate. Standing ovation and kudos to their humor and presentation. YUGE, Absolutely YUGE.
Another good blog friend is Sue McPeak at Collectin Texas Gal - an artistic mix of pictures and words
And thanks Alex Cavanaugh for being everywhere in blog world - amazing and generous
As far as the A to Z team - thanks for all of the support. I had minions visiting - they were everywhere. I think it's all well presented and well documented as to how to participate. The artwork letters are gorgeous. The only frustration is going to the list and spending time clicking on links where folks aren't participating or give up. I don't know how (in the world of software) you could auto delete them due to lack of activity (?).
I look into the blog pool and reflect on the talent in this world. I am in AWE of April A to Z.
