Upward and Onward, A to Z Challenge

I’m upgrading and expanding my blog activities. In March I signed up for a blog activity: http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/   Participants agreed to post daily in April, either on a theme or random topics, titles to run through the alphabet in order.  My theme was “Places I have Lived or Visited” –  http://atozmcr.blogspot.com/  My posts were brief and simple at the start, but I soon began adding my pictures.

I then moved to researching places and adding pictures and/or videos from the internet. There were about 1,800 entries, and part of the challenge was to “visit” a few others each day and leave comments. That opened up a world of ideas for me and resulted in return visits, some “follows” and even on-going dialogues. Those are linked under Blogs I Follow. I now post regularly, adding to my skills while developing a “community”. Blogging has opened a new window on the world and become an exciting educational venture.

Update, April 23, 2014

My first A to Z was so sucessful that I joined again this year. Have a look: Variety, the Spice of Life   It incorporates much of what I have learned during the year and I think it’s a better blog. Again I created a Blogger blog for that sole purpose, but next year I’ll add it to this blog, with access via a Menu Item at the top.
