Reflections of April 2022 #atozchallenge #blogging

This was my first year to participate in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. I posted every day, although a few times, I pushed up against my time zone to get that day’s blog up in time.

I shared hand-me-down family recipes. I got behind on responding to comments, which I will catch up with in the next few days. Life and all that got in the way, and I haven’t replenished my empty cup of expendable mental energy yet. I will, though.

I gained a few followers, which I greatly appreciate. Several bloggers commented and ‘liked’, and that was great, too.

Here is my list of recipes.

One thing I learned was coming up with titles for recipes to fit the alphabet was challenging. “Xtra” for ‘X’ felt like cheating. haha

I’m signing up for the road trip. I’m looking forward to meeting new-to-me bloggers.

I’m also quite pleased with myself for posting 26 recipes and not missing a single day.

Until next time,

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog for the Road Trip. Do you plan to participate in the A to Z Challenge this year? I’m already working on my posts because I find it so much less stressful if I’m well ahead of the game.

    1. Yes. I plan to participate in the A to Z challenge this year. I don’t have a decent topic, though. All my ideas to write about seem superficial. I need to decide soon, because I want to write the articles ahead of time. I scrambled right up against daily deadlines last year. That was stress I don’t want to repeat this year.

    1. Thank you! X, Y, and Z gave me fits. Even the “K” was somewhat of a cheat to come up with an applicable recipe.

    1. Ahh… thanks so much. I posted recipes each evening, and time got away from me several times. Next year, I plan to be better organized and have at least a couple of letters ahead and ready to post.

    1. Thank you! I hope you find a few recipes worth trying more than once. (I don’t recommend “L” hahahahaha)

    1. I know exactly what you mean by taking advantage of the time zone to meet the daily deadline. I pushed right up against my midnight time zone many times. Regardless, we’ll pat ourselves on our backs for sticking with it and making it to the end with 26 posts. Thanks for stopping by.

May the Commenting Force be with you.
