The Reflections Post List Closes Tonight!

        You still have a few hours to put up your thoughts about the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.   We appreciate all of you who have taken the time to tell us what you think.   Let your voice be heard--good or bad we want to know what it takes to make this Challenge the best it can be.  The Linky list will close at midnite tonight Wednesday May 4th.  Sign up below.




The Linky list is now ready for you to add your link.  Please add the link that goes directly to your Reflections post since we well be referring to it in the weeks to come and we don't have to search for the proper post.   The list will be open until May 4th.   This is a blog hop so you will easily be able to add the list to your own blog site as well.


 Please use discretion and courtesy if you add your name to the list.  We invite all participants of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge to join us to express themselves.   Others who feel like they have something truly relevant to add to this discussion are also welcome to participate with their thoughts so long as they are constructive in their intent to help and enlighten others.  Those who merely want to offer negative rants that have no constructive value are asked to refrain from joining the list.    We don't mind hearing your negative thoughts just so you are not trying to tear down other people or hurt the reputations of those who mean well.    And please don't add your name to the Linky list if you have no intent to participate and merely want to be seen on the list.  The list is intended to benefit others and not waste anyone's time.

  3. I am having problems getting the linky list I have been 2 hours trying and still no luck.
    Technology and I don't mix.

  4. Lee, not signing up and NO I have no rants. It was a wonderful challenge just a bit overwhelming for me. We all have different boats to float :)

  5. *ahem* Apparently I'm not a small print reader. I entered my home page link (which will change today from my A to Z challenge reflection to a new post), so feel free to delete if necessary. :(

  9. More than 30 great reflections so far, Lee; though, I am glad you are closing the list, lol. I'm meeting some more fab peeps but still have a ways to go to make it to the end :)

    Thanks again for all you and the A to Z crew have done to bring us together :)

  11. This was a great opertunity for me to know my own extent and limitations I have with writing, It was a great experience reading every one's blogs. I do not know much about creating a link. Also I am kind of busy with different things in my life right now. Hopefully I will catch up.
    Have a blessed Day:)

  12. Hi, Lee,
    This has been a great experience for me and just what I needed at the time. I am trying to play "catchup" with a lot of blogs that I signed up to follow last year. What a job! Ha.
    Thank you so much for hosting, and also to all the other hosts! What a fantastic job all of you guys (gals) did for us. Can't thank you all enough. Love, your friend ruby

  14. I think I did about half the alphabet as the Challenge fell right as my family was falling into crisit with my son's health.
    Though it didn't turn out the way I expected, I did get some very thoughtful and sensitive commments to some of my posts, which I appreciate very much.

    Thanks for all your hard work and the opportunity for the big bloggers and the very small bloggers (that's me) to join in.

  15. Well I wrote a long post and it didn't post! So - thanks Lee for hosting this challenge and taking so much time to visit my blog, read and comment. I had no idea blogging could be such a social thing.

  18. I didn't get around to writing a reflection post, but I am looking forward to visiting everyone who did. Two hundred posts is a lot more manageable than 1200!

  28. Wow, the list grew in a few days....and I thought that I finished reading them all after going through 93 (well, like maybe 90, since I skipped blogs after visiting only to find out that they were home pages or old posts, so I mostly only read the reflections posts)! LOL.

    I'll have to got back into the list to read up on those that I didn't get to.

    Thanks for posting the updated list of the reflections posts :)

    I'm finding some nice blogs that I missed throughout April, :)

  29. Elizabeth -- Thanks and I did see your thoughts on A to Z--appreciate it.

    Karen -- So far I've seen some great suggestions on improving things and an overwhelming amount of positive comments.

    Nicole-- I'm finding new ones as well and it's good since most of these actually did the Challenge. I love reading these and getting ideas from them.

  30. Thanks for letting us talk about the experience, which, for me at least, was overwhelmingly positive.

    I'm swamped with life right now, but am working on the A-Z book, and did some writing-prompt-practice on my blog today.

    Thankyou, and hope to see your consolidated views/ strategies for next year A-Z soon!
