#AtoZReflections 2017

Procrastination is my middle name...

This year I decided the day before the challenge started that I was going to participate...yeah, I know...not the brightest move. In the past, I've written my posts on the weekend before...this year I flew by the seat of my pants (for me at least) and wrote them a day or two in advance, some the night before. I really don't want to do that again! I burned myself out that way, as I felt too overwhelmed.

The Linky List was gone this year...

I was leery about not having a master linky list, but I did like that I could post my exact theme when I posted my daily blog link on the A to Z blog page. I didn't like having to post my link every day though, so it was a pro and a con.

Feedback and Comments

I did get some great comments this year, and I think it had to do with the fact that people were able to see what my theme was before coming to my blog. At least this is my theory. I was a bit sad that I didn't get more male visitors, but I completely understand why :) It was a priority to respond to all my comments and visit their blogs in return. Thanks to all who commented and for all your kind words!

Pet Peeves...

Anyone else get totally insulted upon seeing the “your comment will be visible after approval” thing? No? Just me then... 
Also, I HATE having to fill out a form in order to comment. I only put up with this when I am replying to someone who has commented on a post of mine. Otherwise, I leave and don't comment. Sorry!

Blogs I Enjoyed This Year

Fangirl Stitches ...I seem to always enjoy Roslyn's A to Z's, and this year was no different. She covered Buffy the Vampire Slayer for her A to Z. 
Dorky Mom Doodles ...put a smile on my face and constantly gave me a chuckle! 
Tales from the Love Shaque  ...my most favorite theme this year! An A to Z of Hair Band Songs!

Noteworthy Post:

Y is for Yoda @Doree Weller's blog  ...I loved this post!

I am still not a robot...

As always, on the blogs that have it, I find it entertaining to check that box to prove that I'm not a robot LOL
