A to Z Reflection

Posted on Thursday, 8 May 2014

This was our first year participating in the A to Z Challenge and we thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, we're a bit sad it's over! 

We think we sailed through it rather successfully. We started off very well, getting most of our letter themes jotted down before the challenge began. We mostly wrote our posts the night before and even managed to get L, M, N and O written in the same day, ready and scheduled well in advance. We did start to flag towards the end (once we hit 'R') and found it quite difficult to find inspiration for our posts but we did it! We survived and we managed to get every post out on the day.

We've discovered a tonne of new blogs in the process and we're pleased to see lot's of new readers finding us too. Thank you all for leaving such lovely comments and feedback on our posts too.

We thought we'd be moving house in the midst of it all but the dates got pushed back which meant we weren't stressing too much over our posts - although we're still waiting to move in now! (Paws crossed it's this weekend).

This challenge has made us think a lot about how we blog and we feel it has brought our blogging on in leaps and bounds. We actually can't quite believe how many daily views we were getting! We got super organised with our posts thanks to a special blogger planner to help with post ideas and for logging the sharing of our content across the different social media platforms. Check out MamaMiss to get your own cute organiser!
