I signed up for the A-Z Blogging Challenge with the hope of getting more traffic to my blog/website for my Family Reunion Keepsake Book. I did receive more traffic, and even some comments. I only got about three annoying spam type comments the whole month, so that was not so bad.
It was a challenge keeping up with the almost daily blogging, as I work full time. Having Sundays off was a relief. I was able to keep up and posted every night after work. What I found most challenging about the event was reading other people’s blogs. There were so many to choose from. The tags helped a little bit, but if I hadn’t just chosen to click on ones with no tag, but an interesting title, I never would have found such great people blogging about all sorts of things that were interesting to me.
When next April rolls around, I may do the challenge again. By that date, I will have significantly more time to devote to it, and would hope to gain more information about how others have their blogs structured so that I can learn from their example and apply it to my blogs. I plan to go back to some people’s blogs I really enjoyed and keep reading their posts.
I appreciate the organizers of this event for developing the idea and encouraging bloggers to join. Your banners were a great addition to all my posts. Thanks to all who came to my Family Reunion Keepsake Book blog during the event. Some even found their way to my other blog, A Movie for Every Mood. I hope to see your comments on my blogs in the future.

Thanks to all who visited my blog during the month of April! I appreciate your comments and support. It was truly a challenge posting every day, but I really enjoyed it. Have a wonderful time planning your family reunions, and come back often to review ideas for making it the great event it can be.

Recording the memories will be easy in the Family Reunion Keepsake Book, offered for sale on Amazon by clicking the link on the upper right side of the blog. Let me know how your reunions went. I welcome comments!
