This was my first time participating in this challenge, and I really didn't know what I was in for. April was particularly a difficult month to begin with. I just started a new job that requires travel, I had a big deadline with my publisher, and my oldest son's dance competition season was in full swing - which drained my weekends.
So there wasn't a whole lot of time.
But literally the day before the deadline to enter the challenge, I read posts from many of my blog friends and they were excited about participating. Michael Offutt was particularly persuasive. And I thought this Challenge would be a great way to a daily post about steampunk stuff.
Although I wasn't as organized as I wanted, it was a struggle to keep it going - but it was so much fun. I got to find all kinds of new wonderful blogs, and many found me.
I'm proud to wear the A-Z Challenge Survivor Banner. Like anything that's both difficult and fun, it always ends up being so rewarding. I plan on doing it again next year.
Thanks goes out to all of those involved with A-Z, especially the team that helped put it all together.
