Reflections from a sort-of A to Z Challenge survivor

survivor-atoz2b255b2017255d2bv1I had every intention of completing my posts ahead of time despite the fact that I would be off on a holiday for two weeks in April. However, those intentions turned out to be pipe dreams.

Nevertheless, when I realised that I’d be posting according to my own schedule and not the planned schedule for the challenge, I tried not to panic and reminded myself that this challenge is not meant to add stress to my life.

So, I plodded on, and was happy (and not anxious) at posting some letters many days later. One of my motivations to keep going was that I really liked my theme this year – Malaysiana! I was happy to write about the culture, food and other interesting facts about the country I live in. It was equally awesome to read the comments!

So, post A to Z, I want to catch up on blogs that I’ve missed from the folks that did this year’s challenge! Also, I’ve been toying with the idea of perhaps doing a post focused on Malaysiana perhaps once a week so we’ll see how that pans out!

  1. I know how good intentions can go. I did similar to you again this April. Your theme was excellent and you accomplished it very well. I agree about not getting overly stressed about A to Z. Frantic is okay as long as you keep it fun.

    Thanks for blogging from A to Z with us and for giving us your Reflections about the experience.

    • Thanks Arlee! Yep, I think it’s important to remind oneself not to get too stressed out if you miss a day (or two, or five) of posting! I’m already thinking of next year and hope this time I can write the posts already! ๐Ÿ˜€


  2. As you can see I am behind also in checking out the blog posts of others who participated in the challenge. I am glad that you continued to blog on….and that you didn’t get stressed out. I enjoyed your blog posts. They were fun and educational.

  3. Well done completing the challenge – and happy that you were able to do so on your own terms and not get stressed out about trying to keep to a timeline that wasn’t going to work for you.

    I enjoyed your posts – although missed the later ones – and I like the idea of a weekly feature on the same theme. It sounds like a great take-away from the challenge.

    • Thank you Louise! I’m catching up on all the blogs I missed during the challenge and am quite excited to read everyone’s posts. Appreciate that you think it’s a good idea to continue with a weekly (hopefully) post along the same theme, I can’t wait to start ๐Ÿ˜€
