A to Z Challenge: Reflections

I found out about the challenge in mid-February this year and about a week later I signed up. I loved this challenge so very much and am so grateful for having been given the chance to take part.

I met so many wonderful people through the challenge that there is simply no room to list them all. If you go to my followers, on the right hand side of this page, and look through them, the majority of them are dear friends that I have made during the challenge. During the weekend I usually put up a list of fun links to visit, so I'm sure if you stick with me, you will get to meet many of these wonderful bloggers very soon 

The only problem I had during this challenge was finding the time to reply to comments. Unfortunately I'm usually busy with essays and exams during April and had less time than expected to work on the challenge. I'm happy to say that I managed to write a post for each letter, but I would have loved to have been able to visit my wonderful commenters more often. I'm doing that in my free time these days though :)

One thing that really helped was the little calendar that I made. I wrote down each letter and each day on a piece of paper and filled it in with lots of possible topics. That means that I was able to find something for each letter and that you can expect many more Nordic-themed posts in the future, since I have many left over topics!

That's it really, for reflections. I just want to say a great big sparkly thank you to all of you who visited me, supported me, commented me, followed me and encouraged me throughout the challenge. I really value each and everyone of you, my dear friends, and I'm so glad I decided to take part in the challenge in the end. Even if I don't always have time to comment, you can be sure I'm spending minutes with you, here and there, reading about your days and sending you wishes. I'd like to give each and every one of you a warm, squishy hug!

(PS: You can find all of my challenge posts right here :)

  7. I came by your blog a few times and I enjoyed your posts. Looking forward to reading more in the future.

    I have a planner that's only for my blog, and I used that to make a plan for the challenge. Of course, it didn't matter. I still ended up with days I scrambled together, but that's okay it was still fun.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog, hope to see you again soon. Have a great Monday :)
