From A-Z: A Reflection
And it was! Part of the intended deal is for all us participants to read each other. So, I looked at least five blogs per day. That in itself was an education in how diverse blogs and bloggers are. I saw many design choices I admired and read many interesting things on topics I might never have sought out otherwise. Fascinating.
I found some new people to follow. A few you might want to check out are: Marlene Moss of On Writing and Riding; Chad A. Clark of The Baked Scribe; Holli Moncrieff of A Life Less Ordinary; Colin D Smith's self-titled blog; and Chris of The Pedestrian Writer.
Of course, as someone who hopes to eventually give up her day job and make it as a writer, I was also interested in building my networks. And I did. My twitter following grew substantially. I gained some direct followers of my blog, too. I'm hopeful that some of the people I made contact with will stay in my life and I will hear from them long after this exercise has ended.
So here's a round-up of all the posts I did for this challenge. I'm proud of all of these posts and I'm very proud of some of these posts. It was good for me as a writer to explore the myriad of topics brought up by these evocative words. As E.M. Forster said, "How do I know what I think until I see what I say?"
