A to Z Reflections for A Faraway View
This is one of four blogs that I had entered in the 2015 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. I have entered four blogs for the past four years. Of all my blogs other than my Tossing It Out blog, A Faraway View showed a performance that was more consistently in line with my normal weekly posts and about the same as the A to Z posts in previous years. In other words, there was neither drastic decline in visits nor any appreciable increase--traffic and comments was essentially business as usual.
My posts were kept very short as I have done in the past Challenges. The quality of the content of my Elements of Dreams theme was rather decent I thought--I was pleased with the overall series as a whole. The general theme of "Elements of" was one that I used in all of my blogs and where I could I used the same element which made it helpful for me to focus on keeping all four blogs active in a parallel sense.
As some others have mentioned on their blogs and in my comments sections, I would agree that this challenge of 2015 is probably the best yet from the standpoint of quality of blog posts presented by a number of bloggers and the smooth operation of the Challenge by the A to Z Team of co-hosts.
For me each Challenge seems to get easier as I learn new tricks and prepare posts in advance. As in the past not all of my posts were completed before the Challenge opened and I was composing some right up to the end, but considering the task of content preparation for four blogs I was not in too bad of shape. Next year if I can manage completing all posts prior to April, I will be sitting pretty where it comes to networking.
So bottom line: Great year, successful Challenge from my standpoint, and congenial visits from a cozy few. My thanks to all of my regular readers as well as to the few new ones who dropped in now and then. I hope you'll come back more often.
