Just a few Thoughts on the A-Z Challenge

As some of you dear readers of my little blog will note, I started this about 3 years ago, maybe posting 1 or 2 a month, one month I did 7 posts. Then Arlee Byrd from tossing it out stumbled into my little blog. He became a follower (scary term…follower…as Paul would say, follow me as I follow Christ…save that for another blog…LOL). Anyway, back to the subject at hand. Then he challenged me to join his A to Z Challenge. I didn’t think I was up to the task, but that’s just me.

Anyway, I jumped into the challenge head first…I think I bumped it on something. I’ve met a lot of new people…hello everyone. Gained some new followers (see note above about that. LOL) Became a follower myself of many enjoyable blogs.

With much encouragement and the many responses, I’ve managed to pull from within me blogging thoughts that I hope weren’t to tedious and boring. But also some fun stuff that I’ve posted. Hopefully, I’ll have more stuff worth posting to share, and maybe I’ll even get more awards…thanks Wolfie. But, I want to make this known, I don’t do this for the awards, but it’s still nice. I write because I like to write. It’s just nice knowing someone is reading, and as Mark Twain once said, “The compliment that helps us on our way is not the one that is shut up in the mind, but the one that is spoken out.”

Having a full time job, plus a DJ business (my fun job) on the side (this is getting to be my busy season again) I’m finding I can’t spend as much time blogging (reading and writing) as I would like to, but I will try to post (and reply) as often as I can. I hope everyone gets a chance to read some of my posts. Wish I had the time to read everything everyone writes. I try to respond, but can’t all the time. Thanks everyone for reading. Thanks everyone for blogging.

This past month has been fun. I will make an effort to post at least a couple of times week if I have time. Then again, I may post so much you may get sick of me…LOL…

Be blessed everyone. Be a blessing.

hey bro! just think about it. by Christmas you might have a hundred followers and will decide to follow Lee's example by having an A to Z blog challenge:) you might even expand it to a once a week/26 week challenge having a 5000 min word count...

congratulations though for completion!!!

I'm surprised I'm up to 14...LOL
100 by there's a challenge. That means I'll have to keep saying things of actual interest...

Thanks for the encouragement bro.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

It's been great getting to know another brother in Christ! And a fun one at that, LOL! :O) Glad you joined us for the challenge and I look forward to reading more from you!

GADS!! The pressure is on...LOL.

Hopefully in the days ahead I can share some more of my concept album and some more of my poetry too.

And some of my thoughts as well.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.
Loves me some Floyd.
Gotta gig on Friday Night, May 7th.

Yeah, that follower thing always bothered me like that, but that what they called them so I guess we need to separate one from the other. I am really glad you joined and especially that you are getting in the blog habit. You were like Lazarus in the tomb -- wait there's another Christian analogy that might be taken the wrong way, but you know what I mean.
I enjoyed your posts and will be looking forward to the future because that's the only way I know to look at it.

Tossing It Out

Oh and you're the first one that I've seen have the blog hop thing. At least now I know I did that part right and it works.
