We Did It!

We Did It! - We Finished the Blogging A to Z ChallengeWhew! We finished the Blogging from A to Z Challenge yesterday. We had a few glitches, like when mom went out of town for a few days, but mostly, we did it! Will we do it again next year? I’m not sure. It was very tedious challenging writing six days a week (seven if we did Sunday Selfies with The Cat on My Head) and finding topics that applied to me. I guess that’s why it is called a challenge, but it may be too much for this cat and her old mom. Mom says maybe we need to learn to think outside the box more! I’m not sure why — all kitties know that the best place is INSIDE the box.

Some days, we could make current events fit that day’s letter. Some days, We Did It! - We Finished the Blogging A to Z Challengewe really had to reach to come up with something. What I didn’t like is that it kept me from posting about some current events because we couldn’t figure out a way to make it apply, like the lovely Easter card I got from my friend Billy, the Time Travel Cat. There’s that box again!

Our main reason for doing the challenge was just to see if we could do it, but another reason was to get new readers. I don’t think that happened. We had a couple of new visitors who commented but our readership did not go up noticeably. And I can’t blame anyone or anything for that. There were, in the end, 1516 participants, and we didn’t visit many of them either. Mom said something about not enough time. I think mom needs some time management courses. What’s that mom? You’ve been to many of them? So, what’s the deal then?

Now, I don’t want you to get the idea that we didn’t have fun with this. Here are some of our favorite posts from the A to Z Challenge:

There is something on this floor that smells so intriguing!

I hope you enjoyed some of these posts. We sure appreciate you taking the time to read them and comment. We will now be back to our regular routine, or so we hope. We usually post Friday through Monday and on Wednesday. Mom is going to try to get back to writing on her other blogs on Tuesday and Thursday. I’ll let you know if that happens!

Have a great day filled with things from anipals to zoomies!

  1. ConCATs! we finished the A-Z Challenge too, and so understand your ‘challenging’ comment – maybe if I didn’t work full-time or have any other commitments.

    That is amazing work – congrats. It takes a lot of hard work to complete that challenge and you did it wonderfully. What’s really cool about it is seeing all the different sorts of posts that come out – sometimes having to narrow something down breeds some awesome creative ideas.

  3. Good job! That’s super impressive that you were able to post 6 days in a row. I have a hard enough time keeping up with 2 times a week. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  4. Great job with the challenge! I would love it if you would link up to Happy Caturday at Sidewalk Shoes!

    Great job! Congrats on making through it! 🙂

  6. We are behind with reading all of your post.
    Thanks for mentioning me.
    Kisses & purs,

  7. We appreciated all of your posts but then again we normally do. A – Z would be quite the challenge and we must salute you as we didn’t attempt it.

  8. Yeah, that’s the thing. To get new, regular readers, it’s best to visit others’ blogs and comment regularly, too. That’s the best way I’ve found to get new regular readers. 🙂

    Congrats on finishing the a-z challenge! I know it is a lot of work.

    That is quite an accomplishment, finishing that challenge! We didn’t do it, for all the reasons you mentioned. BUT my human and I are considering doing NaNoWriMo in November (where you have to punch out a 50,000 novel in a month) – I’d post snippets of the work regularly on the blog. We’ll see…
