Let’s start with some of the NEW blogging buddies I found doing A to Z...
The High Cost of this Low Living – Bushman is hilarious! His A to Z was about his life experiences. Seriously people … you need to follow him. He can write his a$$ off and it flows so brilliantly! My fav post: Possum Puppies.
Geek Daddy – He was my daily dose of Star Wars and this I was grateful for. He posted about characters I’ve never even heard of like Zett Jukassa.
Spirit Called - You wanted movie quotes? Well there were movie quotes! Not only that but Huntress comments back and has the best things to say.
Pensuasion - You want Sci-Fi? You got it!
How about some oldies but
Bouquet of Books - Jackie was a panster. She posted about stuff that appealed to her. But I guess plotting to be a panster is still being a Plotter anyways. Right?
Geeky Tendencies - I'm now a pro at everything Final Fantasy and still have no idea how to play. Now if we were talking about Zelda then I'd be all over like bees to honey.
Groundwire - What an amazing chick! She's cool (like frozen yogurt - Kiwi Loco! check out her NEW store!) and chic designing dresses, and plain ol interesting.
Miranda Hardy - What a dream. No literally. She featured the different dreams one can have and what they could mean. Some were sweet, some made sense, and some scary the bejeebers out of me.
The do's, don't and wtf's of my 2012 A to Z experience...
I’m fairly new to the whole blogosphere. Started blogging in August of last year so when I signed up for this I thought it would be a great way to meet new bloggers and gain some new followers, etc. So in doing I thought what a great way to post about my top 5 favorite things. Zombies, Movies, Books, HP, and Norse Mythology. Norse Mythology is my current passion ‘cause it’s my newest WIP's setting. I totally plotted the whole thing in Excel. All 26 letters, all 5 topics, equally a total of 130 posts. AAHHHH!
Then came the Saturdays. I usually don’t blog on the weekends so when the 7th, 14th, 21st, & 28th came along I was sleeping in late on purpose and two of those posts where made up on the spot ‘cause I didn’t want to do my originals. Letter Y was to be done on the 28th but I posted that I would do it Monday with the Letter Z. You know, because it’s Y&Z not Y … Z. They go hand and hand.
What am I changing for next year? It’s only going to be one focus for the whole duration. Whether it’s about me personally or about my writing, or nature, it’s only ONE topic.
What was something that drove me nuts? People posting on the wrong days. I get that you missed a day like I did on the 28th but some were off one or two letters the entire month. People have their pet-peeves and this is one of mine. I’m planning to see Letter F and you posted about Letter H. How in the heck did you get two letters ahead? No – I get it – you posted on Sundays.
And the comments! I tried to post on your blog if posted on mine so if I missed anyone and I’m sure I did, I’m terribly sorry. I was disappointed when I commented and never got a response back so I’m sure others were disappointed with me as well.
