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.
