April has come and gone.
I really enjoyed this challenge! I loved that it forced me to be a bit creative with my posts. I often find myself not posting because I don't have anything to write about. Things get hectic, and busy, and routine, and I say all the time "well it's just like every other day, and it's boring. Who wants to read about that? I was able to write about all kinds of things and draw out some of emotion, rather than just writing about "stuff."
Because of my hectic schedule, I had to do a lot of back dating. I got my posts done, but at times felt like just that. I wrote something down just to say I posted something. Not my best thoughts for sure. I even got to test out the schedule setting. Oh my goodness! I have seen this on the side bar in the post settings, and always just over looked it. I really did think that bloggers posted their posts at 8 am Monday morning at work. How the heck do these people do it?? And then the light bulb went off. Ohhhh they just "schedule" the post for a specific day. Please excuse my blonde moment there.
I visited a lot of blogs and found new sites I enjoyed. While I didn't always have time to read everyday, I enjoyed seeing how different the topics were. I commented and followed, and enjoyed seeing these numbers go up on my own page. I like this sense of community, and have received some great advice/ ideas.
I know this is a "to each is own" type thought, but I am a little confused in regards to responding to comments. As I was exploring other blogs, I found that some people responded to a few here and there, and answered questions that came up from their readers, and others responded to every comment posted. I have read all the comments and I greatly appreciate each and every one of them, but is there an etiquette in responding to comments? Just wondering?
I don't know if I had a favorite posts. There were a lot I enjoyed writing. I am looking forward to participating in the challenge next year.
