A to Z Reflection Post
This was my first A to Z Challenge. So I came to the task with no preconceived ideas. I have written this post in response to a request from the organisers of the Challenge, who have asked participants to provide feedback and thoughts on the Challenge.
What did you like best?
I liked the feeling of camaraderie, of doing something with a larger group. It also encouraged me visit new blogs which is something that I don’t normally do unless they come up in a Google Search when I am on the hunt for something.
I have had a Blog for a number of years but have never really understood the mechanics of social media. The initial coaching emails for the AtoZ Challenge from the moderators were great as they helped me to learn the ropes quickly. From this base, I was then able to find other resources to supplement my learning which was fantastic.
I didn’t do anything I didn’t like.
As this was my first time to participate, I will probably approach things slightly different next time but how I’m not yet sure. I wished I’d allocated more time to visit more blogs, I just ran out of time.

Romance Spinners which did a fabulous series on a tour of the universe, everyone should check them out.
There were so many I’m not sure where to begin
A to Z Challenge - Z is for Zero is one of my favourite blogposts where I pull the whole challenge together into one place and can see what I’ve achieved, and where I need to go next.
I belong to the wider genealogical community where there has been a lot of discussion about whether bloging is dead see a very recent post by Amy Johnson Crow her conclusion is Blogging Isn't Dead; It's Just Different.
Much to think about.
A big thank you to the organisers of the A to Z Challenge who did a wonderful job coordinating and supporting those who participated. Looking forward to participating next year’s challenge, once I’ve recovered from the 2017 Challenge.
