It's a Party!!!

As part of my introduction to daily blogging, I have joined a variety of challenges to "get me going." First I joined the Slice of Life Challenge in the month of March. That went well. I managed to make it to my 80th consecutive day blogging (it was soooo exciting to reach that milestone).  So the challenge ended and I sought out the next challenge.

I found not one, not two, but three challenges to enter for the month of April. The first was The A to Z Challenge where every day's blog post starts with the next letter of the alphabet. Well, every day except Sunday. You can read my A to F posts below this one! I also entered the The Ultimate Blog may or not see the results of this is for me to help improve my blog and the traffic coming through. I also entered the GBE #2 (My girlfriend Rosemarie and I just named it Great Blog Experience), which has a weekly prompt. I must admit that I didn't finish last week's topic yet, but will integrate it somehow this next week!

So....I wanted to celebrate! I am pleased with my progress. I decided to join the The Ultimate Blog Party. Why not? Who doesn't like a good party? I have never attended a blog party, but why not? I can do a little blog hop over to check out some other sites and maybe they can hop over to see me too!

Blogging has become one of the greatest things I have done for myself in a long time! I have enjoyed the time to myself, thinking and reflecting and I enjoy the feedback from others. I have to say that the blogging experience has been an incredible one...

Thank you to all who have encouraged me on this journey! Here's to happy blogging...


  1. Lovely post, Shannon. I have to say that the best gifts I ever gave myself were to start blogging in 2009 and the commitment to write something every day in August of 2012. It is an amazing way to clear your mind, get feedback on problems that plague you and sometimes, just vent your spleen. Good luck with yours!

  2. I'm glad you've discovered blogging. I love it too and am now your third follower.
