There were days when I was clueless what to write but in the end, I wrote. It was more of self-challenge. Last year, I stumbled upon some blogs who were already doing this challenge and I wished to participate and 2016 is the year of implementation from dreams.
To be frank, I was doubtful about completion when the challenge was one week down but I kept going with the fabulous blogging community and Blogchatter.
What was in it for me?
The best part of AtoZChallenge is about finding a community. I made new blogger friends. Blogchatter gave that opportunity to interact with few awesome bloggers and even today when we are in May and challenge is over, I still go and read those new found blogs.
Blogging was more like an everyday activity the whole April. It was like the habitual chore and I enjoyed it. Sometimes, with work commitments, it was difficult but I think that is the main challenge. No?
This year my posts were random not around a theme and now I understand why blogging with a theme could be more beneficial. I can say that because there were alphabets when my mind was flooded with topics and I had to choose what interested me most. The theme gives you focus and channelise your thoughts. Next year, I am certainly going to participate with a theme.
The other takeaway for me is to schedule the post before hand. That leaves time for blog hopping.
All in all, it was a fun blogging activity and I am already waiting for 2017 challenge.
