A-to-Z Challenge Relections

a-to-z-reflection-2014It took me a while to want to write this.

I learned a lot from the A-to-Z Challenge — and probably won’t do it again.

I don’t want to set out to write short blurbs just to collect followers and they don’t necessarily hone my writing skills either.  I noticed that with few exceptions, many high traffic blogs don’t really interest me, unless they post art.  I really love getting The Sketchbook‘s posts daily, for instance.  WOW.  Candy.

I like writing interesting stuff — interesting to me, anyway.

I like writing consistently about art best, so dkatiepowellart is my favorite blog to write.

I can write, consistently.  I did this challenge to see if I could write consistently and I can, day in and day out.  Three blogs, 26 posts.  Yeow.

I want real followers and to connect with  great bloggers that want to share their stories too — I try to visit everyone who come to me unless they are soliciting business.

I didn’t really appreciate the negative feedback from the admin.

I met some GREAT bloggers, new, old, proficient, just starting.  And maybe even a friend or two.  A sampling:  donegallizdoyle, Tarosan, One Art’s Journal, The Sketchbook, Lainyrain, Brian Kasstle’s Blog

That’s all Folks — next year I have other plans for the month of April.  I am going to become a fake journalist!  (Check out The Official Fake Journal Page.)

    I agree with everything you’ve said. The best thing has been finding those few treasures…I was tempted to give it go again, but have decided not to. Thank you for mentioning me – that made me so happy! 😉 x

    I agree as well. I am not interested in chain letter bloggers, but the treasures I found on the way were worth all the stress. And now, through those I met and their comments I am finding more interesting sights, like yours. Thank you for visiting my sight. Yes, I am in between you and the coast. And I will be coming back to spend some time and look at your great artwork and also check out your organic page.


I love hearing from visitors!
