Last year around November, Elizabeth Mueller asked me a question that changed my blogging forever. She asked if I would be interested in Co-hosting the A to Z April Blogging Challenge. . . I said yes. 412 followers later, the challenge is over for this year and I cannot believe it! The months leading up to the challenge, the entire team e-mailed back and forth constantly. Working on setting things up, making sure our posts were ready and getting the word out.
I was so nervous at first. I had no idea what I was doing. It was terrifying. But there was no way I was backing down. (Although, I did think about it a couple of times). Now that this years challenge is over, I am terribly sad. This has been the most amazing experience I have had in the blogging world and I wouldn't trade the experience for anything!
I made tons of new friends! Found some amazing blogs, learned about better blogging and being a better blogger and I learned tons of fun facts during the challenge. Was it easy? NO! Was it worth it? Every minute. Will I participate in the challenge next year? YES! I won't miss another A to Z challenge as long as I am blogging. Would I join as a Co-host again for next year if asked? Definitely!
And I want to Thank a handful of awesome people. Starting with Elizabeth for asking me to Co-host. Arlee, Alex, Tina, Damyanti, Jeremy, DL, Jenny, Shannon, Matthew, Karen & Stephen for welcoming me into the group of Co-hosts and allowing me to have this amazing experience! Please give these wonderful people a round of applause!
I would also like to thank All of you! Thank you for supporting my blog, taking the time to read what I post and comment and for participating in the challenge! Without all of you, the challenge wouldn't work!
And now, it is your turn! Tell us what you thought of the challenge, what you would change, what you liked most and your thoughts on the whole experience! Post your Reflection post and link that post directly on the linky list!
