I’ve done the A to Z Blogging Challenge for six years now, and enjoyed it every time. I’m proud that I’ve finished them all, because learning to finish a writing project was my main goal. I was especially grateful this year to learn that I could take a theme, caregiving, and make a cohesive body of information, based on my own experiences. That’s almost like writing a book, and I did it! (A very short book however…)
I truly felt “cheered on” by a group of readers who read most all of my posts. This was valuable since it showed me that my topic did have an audience, and was possibly serving a need. All the comments were kind and helpful, and they weren’t even all from my family and relatives! So good. (That is not to say I don’t appreciate comments from family too – that didn’t come out quite right.)
I think the challenge was well managed and designed this year. The sign-up, master list, badges were all easy to access. Perhaps the smaller number of blogs participating made it seem more streamlined – it was easy to go down the list to find topics I was interested in. I was surprised by the number of blogs I went to read and found they weren’t taking part.
Thank you so much, organizing team and readers. Appreciate you all and hope to read more of you on the Road Trip.

I know I’m extremely late, but I still wanted to congratulate on finishing the challenge.
It happened to me too, you know, the first time I took part: the challenge showed me there is an interest in my topic and that’s a valuable discovery for a blooger.
Let’s see what next challeng ewill bring and let’s hope to take the challenge in more cheerful circumstances.
Thanks for commenting on our shared experience. I appreciate the A to Z and all the different ways it can be done. See you next year?
Well, that’s my plan 😉
Your topic was excellent and timely. Thank you for the great advice and heart.
Thanks Antoinette. I enjoyed your comments too.
