Arlee Bird and his A-Z Blogging Challenge. April was a whirlwind of blog posts, commenting, and site hopping. I loved it. I met people from all over the world and learned about their interests, passions, failures, and aspirations. From Greece to New Zealand...India to California, the people on the other side of my monitor lifted my spirit with beautiful poetry, moving photographs, verses, and prose.Thank you to
If I had a problem figuring out what to blog about before, I've been cured. I posted more times in the month of April than in the past two years combined. I learned how to grab photographs from Flickr, self edit, manipulate HTML tags, and use the Mr. Linky...all in one month!
It was definitely difficult to keep up with all the comments, but seeing yours in my email motivated me to spread the joy. Someone out there was reading my posts...someone that didn't share my last name, or genetics, or was otherwise cajoled into "checking out my blog". If someone came up with a "post every odd day" fest or something similar I'd definitely throw my hat in the ring again.
Thank you for sharing all of your rants and praises. For letting me into your world for a few moments while you celebrated and hoped and even grieved. I had a wonderful time...and will contiue to follow you all.
