R is for Reflection on the A to Z blog challenge

As is most unusual for me, I have nothing but positive things to say about this challenge.

For me personally it achieved this:
1. I learned how to blog technically much better and still have a way to go, but can post pictures and everything.
2. I read more than I wrote and found so many blogs to follow that are so great and will continue to follow many of them.
3. I met some great people, some I had already known a little bit from YCN, but now got to know them in a different light.
4. I got some new followers and hope I can live up to their expectations of Pirate Knitting.

Finally, it was fun, not always keeping up, but I felt a real thrill when I finished last night. I want to thank the organizers of this event for all their efforts and please let me know of any future ones. BTW catch us crazy bloggers that are going backwards on the Z to A challenge.


  1. Missed you during the A to Z but found you on the blog hop list! My mom was a big knitter - she made the most beautiful sweaters. Nice to meet you!

  2. Congratulations for finishing the challenge and for your victories in learning the technical stuff with blogging.

  3. Never thought about the techie skills I've learned from blogging. So true!
    I've enjoyed reading your posts and I'll keep dropping in to see what's on the needles - or whatever.

  4. I am with you. Rarely do I have only good things to say about anything. But the experience of this challenge and the people I have had a chance to find through it fall in that category.

    I am following up with the Z to A challenge AND the A to Z article challenge. Hopefully I can say as many good things about May as I did April.

  5. Congrats on finishing the challenge. Didn't find you until the reflection posts but I think that counts as part of the challenge.

  6. Congratulations on a job well done! I'm very impressed that you're so tech saavy and are ready to jump into another challenge! I'll be looking for you! Julie

  7. I like the positive attitude I read here and I'm glad not to find otherwise. It speaks well for the Challenge and its participants when we hear so many good things. Sounds like you had a good learning experience and took advantage of the Challenge to improve your blogging skills. Congratulations and thank you for participating.

  8. I FINALLY got to HERE. Whew. Should have been sooner and I'm sorry it wasn't sooner :) As I hop through the reflections, I'm "meeting" so many fab people...

    ANYway, so glad you're doing MA's Z to A; enjoy it and keep on writing, I like your style :)

    Cheers :)

  9. Congrats on finishing and learning so much! I didn't get around to as many blogs as I'd liked to during the challenge, so Shannon @ The Warrior Muse and I are joining forces in another challenge. We're going to visit and comment at each of the participants, starting with the reflections post. We hope you'll join us!
