2016's A to Z Blogging Challenge ended April 30 and in it's wake are all kinds of emotions both from those who took part in the challenge and those who were just spectators. For myself I have a mixed sense of elation, tiredness, and relief. Elation from being a victor and completing the challenge. Last year I did not take part but was a minion to The Joy Brigade. This year however I was determined to take part and also ended up being a minion to a variety of blogs. About two or three ended up being removed from the challenge and another one or two stopped writing challenge posts. But there were those who went to the end even if they didn't get every letter. I send congrats to all of them as taking on this challenge is not easy. Then there is tiredness. April took a wild turn when I was hit by a bad flu. If I had not made notes of the movies I wanted to do in advance I am not sure if I would have made it after sickness hit. A lot of the post I ended up having to do day to day because the flu as well as my exhaustion issues and everything else that comes with having a life took hold. Yet I still persevered and that's what matters. Lastly there's the sense of relief. As much as I loved going from day to day proving I could do the challenge as well as enjoying my movie theme. It was a relief to post the letter Z. It's kind of like writing a book. Of course you want to write it. But you also want to finish that book eventually and move unto something else. No one wants too much of a good thing.
At the end of the day I'm very happy with A to Z this year. My only gripe is that there are some on the list who join with zero interest in visiting others at all. But that has nothing to do with those who organize the event and is up to the individual. It was fun sharing my love of movies with both regular visitors and new alike. Kudos to all who worked so hard to organize the event and to all who took part thanks for making this year's challenge so many flavors of wonderful.
