Zipped Up! (A-to-Z Challenge completed)


Well, it’s the last day of April, and I’ve now zipped up my 26th blog post of the month to finish the 2013 A-to-Z Challenge.

At the beginning of the month, blogging about a different alphabet letter each day seemed fairly do-able.  I wrote out a list of various words for each letter to give me blog topic ideas, and most of them were RVing-related.

But as you readers know, just as soon as those plans got made, life decided to revise them.  Most of the RV topics flew out the window, and my daily posts began to get delayed into small batches of posts at a time.

In the end, though, I’m glad that I continued to see this project through to its completion.  It’s been hard to prioritize the mountains of work that have hit me and the family since my mom’s death.  So, this little blogging project has often times seemed like the one thing I could comfortably manage and maintain control of.

I’m going to try and continue blogging more often in the future.  Probably not up to a daily level, but hopefully more than the 2 or 3 posts per month I’d been doing previously.

Who knows where I’ll be next year, but I’d certainly like to try the A-to-Z challenge again next April, and encourage my fellow blogger friends to do the same!


  1. Good for you, you did it! Next year I'd like to try, but my posts would sure be shorter than the ones I write now!

    When I started blogging I noticed someone had an icon on their blog from


    I clicked on it, and saw it was a badge for blogging every day that month. I did it three times, but even in the beginning it was hard to post every day. For me, at least.

    I like the idea of using the A to Z letters. I might try that next April, too. I'd love to earn that badge. Every time you look at it, you'll feel a sense of accomplishment. I still do when seeing my badges, and that was a long time ago. :)

  2. I'm sure glad you told us you published them in bunches. I was only getting one at a time so I got to have the fun of going back and reading the ones I missed. Thanks.
