A to Z Reflections Post | #AtoZChallenge

Congratulations on another 26 A-to-Z Challenge blog posts (Blogging from A to Z, April 2018).

May 7th is the date of the Reflections Post. I’ve included mine below.

From April 1-30, 2018, I participated in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge for my second year in a row.

My theme this year was Haiku Poetry about Life and Nature (includes all the post links). It was a good decision to write meaningful but very short posts this year, since last year I spent a huge number of hours on most of the posts, lost a lot of sleep, and spent too much time sitting on my butt instead of being active (my work is a sitting job as well). The 2018 haiku poems received a positive response.

The master sign-up list and the daily letter lists were a good idea. They made it easier to search other people’s blogs for themes and letter of the day. I also filled out the survey on May 3rd.

Coming up in the second part of May and in June is the Road Trip. Read about it here. Included is the link to the Reflections Posts.
