Since this is my sixth Challenge that means I've already done 5 years worth of Reflections and in some years those Reflections were broken down into a multi-part series of analytical posts about the Challenge. Anything I would say this year would only be repetition of what I've said in the past. If you're really interested in some of my A to Z thoughts then please go back to the Reflections of previous years.
As with every year there have been the detractors and naysayers about A to Z. Some of their issues I am empathetic with while some are decidedly silly in my opinion. I'm always willing to discuss these negatives but mostly these are something to do with the complaining blogger and not to any inherent deficiency of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. This Challenge remains a mighty event that many love, some accept, and more that a few benefit from.
Also I would be remiss in failing to thank the extraordinary efforts put forth by our dedicated A to Z Team of co-hosts as well as my own Ambassadors and all of the rest of the Minions, Muffins, and other volunteer helpers who put hours into trying to make this Challenge of 2015 run smoothly. It's still not perfect, but it's still pretty excellent.
So instead of me saying the same things I usually say, I'm going to let some you in the A to Z Community speak. Here are some quotes gathered from comments and other sources:
I started blogging again because of this challenge. I abandoned my blog for far too long, but I had not previously connected with other bloggers. I only shared each new post with my friends, so I hope I didn't disappoint too many visitors. Participating in this has reminded me how much I enjoy writing and it has also given many great ideas about posting more regularly.Thanks for being such an excellent host, Arlee!Elizabeth @ Liz's Random Ponderings
