I think this year was my fourth doing the A-to-Z Challenge.
The first two years were more of a challenge because I did not have a theme.
From now on there will be a theme! So much easier.
Having a theme, this year ” There was a little girl who”, gives a focus to what I write.
In the first two years without some starting point or focus I spent a lot of time just trying to come up with something to write about.
I think my posts weren’t as good.
I did visit a little over 200 blogs on the list but did not read the whole post on many
and only commented on a few. Posts that were loooong I passed over because of time.
This is not unusual for me…I rarely read any post over 500 words. There just isn’t enough time. As for commenting, again the time thing and then sometimes I just didn’t have anything to say.
Of the blogs I read most were very good. I am impressed with bloggers!
Some seemed to have nothing to do with A to Z. Those I simply skipped over.
I did find some blogs I bookmarked and I will go back and visit a while to decide if I will follow. I do not subscribe to the “I follow you so you follow me rule”. I don’t expect blogs I follow to follow me and those who follow me shouldn’t expect me to follow them. Once again the time thing…I follow many blogs and there are only so many hours to spend on the computer and still have a life.
I don’t have any suggestions for y’all.
What you are doing you are doing very well.
Thanks to everyone on the A-to-Z Challenge team! What a lot of work…and that time thing! I appreciate the work you do for this hop. It is a great way to see blogs I would never see without the list. It is a challenge and it is a fun challenge!
In the back of my ditzy mind I am already thinking about 2015.
For a while she had nightmares about people
who were wearing wooden shoes.
It was all because of Howdy Doody.
There was a story on his show about some bad
puppet people who wore wooden shoes.
She told her mommy about her fear of
these puppet people with wood shoes.
Mommy assured her that where they lived
there was no one who wore wood shoes so she was safe.
One day the little girl and her mommy were taking a taxi home.
They lived in a small town with only a couple of taxis
so people often shared a ride.
On this day the driver stopped to pick up another lady.
She smiled at the lady but the lady didn’t smile back.
She seemed mad and a bit mean.
The little girl scooted over closer to her mommy.
Then she looked down and had the fright of her life.
The lady had wood shoes on just like the ones
the bad puppet people wore on Howdy Doody!
