Y’all come back now, ya hear!

29 Apr

Tomorrow is the last day of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. It is crazy to think that I might actually make it through this thing- and let’s face it, if I don’t figure out a post for tomorrow for the VERY LAST DAY then I am useless and shouldn’t be allowed to communicate any ways.

Some of you might be glad it is ending. You visit my blog because you like me and don’t particularly care for alphabetically themed posts although I did try to steer clear of making them too nursery bookish. My OWN MOTHER told me that my blog posts unrelated to the challenge are much better than the ones I wrote for the gosh darn thing. She is lucky I know she thinks I am her most talented child, otherwise my feelings might have been hurt.

Others might only have been coming to this blog because of the challenge. To you I say, please don’t go! I have a very fragile ego and would love for you to keep visiting my blog, because I sure hope to do the same.

However, it’s been a real treat getting involved in this whole blogging thing. It’s now been a week shy of two months that I’ve been sharing my life with the ENTIRE WORLD. The folks I’ve “met” through the challenge itself, blog hops and who the heck knows how, have made my days a million times better. It is so fun getting to know and letting you all into a little part of my life.

So this is a thank you for following me thus far and being patient with my learning curve both in the challenge and with blogging itself. Don’t expect me to improve much more anytime soon, though. I’m still new to this after all.


Today was Day Twenty Five (or Day Y) of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge

Hoping you’ll follow me on Bloglovin or Twitter! New friends make me happy! I also recently created a profile with Canopi, so you can check me out there if that’s what you use! If you don’t use any of these things, you can always follow by entering your E-mail where it says “Follow” up there in the top right. Basically, I am giving you no way to avoid me.

    I found you through a RT and love the way you write. I will keep peeking in from the tweets. Congrats on finishing the challenge! (tomorrow)

    I’m with you on this one! It was a good writing exercise, but I’m wiped! Nice job in getting there! (I haven’t even started Z yet.)

    It’s been fun, but I too am slowing down. Z is hard because of my theme. Not many memories start with Z. I don’t even have a good Zoo story! I’ll be stopping by again- I enjoy your posts.

      Maybe having trouble with zippers? Haha! Good luck thinking of one 🙂

    I’ll definitely keep reading your blog!
    I think it’s natural for the quality of our blogposts to go down when we’re writing every day and limited by alphabets.

    That picture is so gorgeous; what a fun challenge! I was already following you on bloglovin’, but now I’m following via Twitter too! Have a great day :o)

    I think I might have found you because you found me. I don’t remember! Congrats to you on completing the challenge – I am doing my first one to blog every day which was a huge stretch, but I think I am going to make it! Its been fun to connect with you…I will be back!!

      I don’t remember either! I am glad it happened though 🙂 Thanks!!

      Thanks so much to you for coming by 🙂 I’m honored to have such pros reading!

    I’m so impressed that you’ve (almost) completed this challenge – way to go Kate! I don’t know if I could do it!

    It is hard to believe the challenge is almost over, but blogging daily is hard to do. I have to admit, I wrote most of my posts ahead of time though, so that helped a lot because there is always something going on in life, as I’m sure all of us can say.

    I did enjoy doing this and met some great new folks, so I will be following them as time goes by. There are still a lot of posts I want to read too, but there is only so much time. I will get to everyone eventually. I emailed myself a lot of A to Z blog links to look at.

      I added several (including you!) to Bloglovin’ so will keep up that way!

    Have been following you for …. can’t quite remember which letter it was, but whatever it was it must have impressed me to follow. I have only been blogging 1 year ( actually 13 months), and the A-Z thing makes me the most busy. I will con’t to keep in touch… hope you do the same. Cheers!

    I found you through the bloppy’s, but I think you found me first the other day. Anyway, glad to meet you and I’ll be back to read more! 🙂

  13. Michelle Liew April 29, 2013 at 10:54 pm #

    Loving the personal touch to your writing! Glad to connect, and will definitely visit. Do post more, so we can follow!

    • Another Clean Slate April 30, 2013 at 7:25 am #

      Thanks Michelle! How often do you think is good for posting?

      • Sunni Morris April 30, 2013 at 3:50 pm #

        I know this posting question isn’t for me, but it is best to post at least once a week. I try to post to both my blogs twice and week. Whatever you do, try to be consistent and post on the same day, so people will get to know they can find a new post at a particular time.


      • Another Clean Slate April 30, 2013 at 3:58 pm #

        Thanks Sunni! I need to do some thinking about my schedule so that I am consistent!

I love hearing what you have to say! Give it to me...
