So, this is it...The A-Z Blogging Challenge is finished.
To all my fellow A to Z-er's: We made it. We've crossed the finish line!
First of all, I have to give another shout out to the hosts of the A to Z Blogging Challenge:

These people all did an amazing job of putting this challenge together!
I really enjoyed participating in the A-Z Challenge. My blog was only a few days old when the challenge started. I was excited to be joining, but a little nervous at the same time. I had (and still do have) very little experience with writing blog posts. Could I write a blog post every single day? Could I come up with something interesting enough to write about for each letter? I didn't know! But I did write every single day (okay, I did miss W and X due to illness, but I made them up!) I still don't know I I came up with interesting enough topics, but I don't think I did too bad on that front.
I started off trying to write something I like and something I don't like for every letter. Turns out I couldn't always think of a don't like for certain letters! But then, I had a couple of posts that were only "don't like" letters. Some days I wasn't sure I was going to get my post up before the day was over, but I made myself sit down and write my post.
I've met some new friends and found some really great blogs through this challenge. I've also gained a few new followers who have left me some very encouraging comments.
I'm a bit sad to see this challenge come to an end (but a little relieved that I can relax too!), but I'm excited to do it again next time! And in the mean time, don't worry, I'll keep writing! Whether you want to hear what I have to say or not! ☺
As for the April 2011 A to Z Blogging Challenge...
