April came and left in a flash. I am so amazed at how fast time is flying. I completed the A to Z blogging Challenge without any problems this year. This was my 3rd year!!! My theme was Life's Lessons. I kept the posts short and simple. And most were written in advance so all I had to do was hit publish every night before I went to bed. I think that is one of the biggest secrets to being successful with the challenge. The other is to have a theme!
For the month of April my blog had 6,215 page views. Every time I look at my stats I am blown away. I am so impressed by the number of those who flew in and out the windows of my blog. I picked up 12 new followers; about the same as last year. More important, to me anyway, is I made new friends. Some I will continue to follow as the year progresses. Now if we could just figure out how to get people to leave a comment to let you know they stopped by.
I like doing the challenge. I didn't get around to as many blogs on the list (1500 by the end of the challenge) this year. That is a lot of blogs. But what I did was chose 20 new blogs to follow through the entire challenge. As well as those of my friends who also did the challenge. That was enough of a chore for me to keep up with. I continue to be frustrated with those who start the challenge and then stop. And for those blogs who don't make commenting easy. Otherwise I have no complaints.
And I will be back in 2016. I also have a couple of ideas in mind for a theme. Until then.....
