Well, I did it - two years in a row. I must be a couple sandwiches short of a picnic, because after barely getting through it last year, I voluntarily signed up for it again this year. *shakes head*
I'm glad I did it again, though. I had several posts written in advance, and some I re-wrote later because I felt like it, or I wanted to get something off my chest, or fill y'all in on my life, because I know you're just dying to know what's going on. Right? Of course
I didn't do any "themes". I'm not sure I'm that creative to come up with something that would work for the alphabet, but if I start thinking now, maybe I can come up with something that's not lame enough to make even my horse's eyes roll into the back of her head.
The first week I had a lot of new traffic, people stopping by to leave a comment. Each week, though, brought fewer and fewer passersby, but they were still there. I gained 17 to 20ish followers I think. So, I'd love to thank y'all for stopping by to at least give me a shot, and I'd love to say "welcome" to all those that hit that cute little follow button on the left. Those that followed finally put me over the 100 mark - I'd been sitting just below it months, just waiting to see if I could actually hit it. lol
I tried to visit everyone who visited me, and went through the entire list on the A-Z page and tried to visit 5-10 blogs a day. I followed a few new blogs, but I was careful not to follow everyone simply because there aren't enough hours in the day read everyone's stuff! Especially for someone who has three jobs, blogs in her spare time, and attempts to keep up with the ones she follows. Plus the stack of books I have on my counter hasn't moved much recently (maybe it's because I keep buying more??? Didn't think so.) . . . And then of course there's my fairly recent Castleville obsession on Facebook.
Yes. I need a life. I'm aware, thanks.
Anyway, I will probably voluntarily sign up again next year because I'm about as nutty as squirrel poo.
