Another April is over and I’ve completed the A-Z Challenge for the fourth year in a row! This year, my theme was the rather broad idea of my favourites – that included songs, characters, films, actors, and any random thing that I loved a lot. You can find all my posts here.
I received about the same amount of views and visitors as during last year’s challenge but I got almost double the amount of comments and likes, meaning there seemed to be more engagement in what I was posting. This was a nice surprise. My top three posts for the challenge were on Kim Possible, Imagine Dragons and Travelling – showing that I and those who visited my blog really do have an eclectic taste.
I was really very organised this time round and had written and scheduled all my posts by 24th April! I had a whole week when I wasn’t panicking about needing to write posts and could instead focus on visiting and commenting on other blogs. I also followed some new blogs which was great and got a few new followers in return.
As usual, I wasn’t always great at replying to comments (that’s a fact of life on this blog even when I’m not taking part in the A-Z Challenge) and have some I still need to respond to, but I really appreciated every comment I received.
I really enjoyed reading peoples posts this year. There was such a range of subjects written about, from studies on a certain country to old medicine and art and crafting. There’s a lot of talented people taking part in the challenge. Seeing such varied themes this time round has given me some potential ideas for next year – but I won’t get too worried about that just yet!
I hope all those who took part in the A-Z Challenge this year enjoyed it and I hope the challenge went well for you.
