A-Z Reflection

Don't you just love cat pictures? If it's hard to see the picture, well I'll give you a short description. The white cat is jumping up with it's paws out. Then the other cat is just looking at him like...okay? There's another one where the cat is leaning against the window with a gun, scoping out the perimeter...
Well, I'm not here to talk about cats. I should have done that the "C" day for the Challenge. Well, overall, I think that this was a great experience. I gained quite a number of followers. I should have made a goal for myself to compare and what not. But this is a pretty big number.(for me at least) Last month, I had like 7 followers and now I have 52 in a month, that's an accomplishment. Last year, I didn't do the challenge mostly because I was new to it and didn't know what in the world I was doing. This year, the challenge went great. It was fun and interesting to read what others posted for the specific letter. I also gained more strength in writing and the type of writer I want to be.
Now that I think of it, I might be posting on a regular basis. School is almost over and I will have more free time during the summer. On my blog, I posted a poll on the things I can do to improve my blog. Please vote, it is located on your left side. Just two clicks and you requested something from me which I am committed to do.
Another thing I learned from this was my writing style. I can be a serious writer sometimes but as a random person, it's kinda hard. I really learned how to improve it with the challenge. I loved reading comments from everyone because it was nice to know others read my stuff :p
I recommend this to anyone who would like to learn to gain more followers or just to increase more depth in their writing style. Blogging is fun when you have Challenges like this that influence you to keep writing and have fun at the same time. Back then, I would write once in a while but now it's hard to say,"Eh, I'll write next week."
Because of the followers I gained this month, I really want to write more. That's the whole beauty of the A-Z Challenge.
Overall, I think it was great and well done. I would like to thank:
Arlee Bird

That is a really funny photo that you posted and congratulations for getting through the blog. I enjoyed the A to Z Challenge as well.

Your blogis appealing and has a nice design with cute colors and a nice layout. If there was one suggestion that I would have for you, it would be to consider changing the font of the posts to something that is easier on the eyes to read. Readers who come across blogs using mobile devices may appreciate this particular improvement. Other than that, you're blog is pretty cool!

congrats on completing the challenge and gaining all those followers. It was certainly a challenge. I didn't do it last year for the same reasons. I was new to blogging etc.

Re blog improvements: I agree with Nicole's suggestion to change the font. Everything else is fine.

Stephanie said...

Thank you both for the little improvement. I use my iTouch a lot but I zoom in. I used to have the arial font but thought it was a bit boring. Anyways, thank you! :)

Great job in finishing the Challenge this year! You did well and it sounds like you learned much, which is one of the most valuable things to take away from a Challenge like this.
Keep up the good work on your blog and with your writing. I've added your Cupcake Award to my sidebar.

I guess I'll see you Saturday at Abuelo's Birthday party.

Don't forget to pick up your Winner's Badge at my site.
