Well here we are on May 2 and while the big A to Z Challenge is over for most of you, I am still slogging through, determined to reach Z. Though I have not finished yet, I still got a great award from Elizabeth Mueller. Isn't it pretty? I know I posted it yesterday, but it's great I had to put it up a second time. :)
Arlee over at Tossing It Out, one of the big hosts asked us all to participate in a Mega Reflections post. So I'll share with you my experiences from this month long fest.
It has been a fantastic, daunting, amazing, difficult, magnificent experience. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I signed up. I have met so many brilliant and remarkable people that I can't even begin to tell you. I also saw another side to friends I already had at the start of this. It was a joyous discovery to see what they had put together each day. There were films, excerpts, anecdotes, songs, words of wisdom, writing tips... a treasure trove of wonders to read about.
I reached deep inside of myself and shared some things that surprised me, memories I had put away. I appreciate to the bottom of my heart and soul all the wonderful comments I received on these various posts. It was so amazing to connect with others who had similar experiences, tastes in movies, songs, etc. My blog is not even a year old and the number of people who have kindly visited, commented and followed, especially during this challenge, leaves me speechless. I had no idea so many would respond to words I thought I would be posting for myself mainly.
It was very difficult trying to navigate through all the participants and I am disappointed at not being able to visit as many of the blogs on the list as I wanted. I got kind of lost, actually, and wasn't able to keep track of where I'd been. I'm going to try and hit as many more as I can because from the names they all sound intriguing and I don't want to miss a thing.
I hope you all had as much fun as I did and I can say without hesitation that I am ready to sign up again for next time. Thank you Arlee, Alex, Stephen, Jen, Talli Candace, Jeffrey and Karen. You did a brilliant job co-hosting and for giving us all this opportunity to connect. I wish you all out there a wonderful week and I hope you'll stick with me for the final letters. I'm planning something special for the big finale. Peace!
