Again this year I came to the A to Z Challenge at the last minute. But I am glad I did. I have been blogging for 14 years now (though I keep forgetting my blogiversary) and my enthusiasm for writing it has waxed and waned. I first did the A to Z back in 2012 when there were, I believe, well over a thousand participants, and although the blogosphere has also waxed and waned over the years there are still lots of people out there connecting over the things that they enjoy. My garden has given me much joy in the last couple of years and looking back this April has enthused me ready for the summer ahead.
New seedlings are waiting for the summer to arrive:
I did a lot of blog hopping.
The Girdle of Melian is the only person still blogging from my first reflections post, who I have been following all this time.
Planet Pailly was my first find this year, fascinating posts about the planet Mercury.
Jabblog has also been posting about flora and fauna, some wonderful photos every day.
John at The Sound of One Hand Typing has given us an amazing eclectic mix of music and musings.
Sarah posted an interesting selection of photos, slotted in-between her writing.
Zombie Flamingos gets a mention because I am a sucker for an wacky blog title, and they also post cats and flowers, what's not to love.
And Sharon, who I only found on the reflections list, did Disney music, and going back through her posts has lifted the mood of our afternoon muchly.
Thanks to the team at the A to Z Challenge and to everyone who participated, see you again next year.
Stay safe. Be kind. Blog on!
