A to Z Reflection, atozchallenge

Again, this year, I felt under pressure to get the posts completed for the 26 days. I find if you don't write them ahead of time and then post on the day of, it doesn't work too well. I don't believe I put my best creative foot forward with this challenge and I completed it, mostly, to just keep my word and commitment. But that is not what writing is for me. I have a job and a family and I write as a form of expression and creativity. I don't write to get noticed and I don't make much advertising money from blogging. I felt a sense of falseness when other bloggers would visit my blog in a 'scratch my back, I'll scratch yours' gesture. I did make one brief, genuine connection with another blogger, but all in all, this felt too much like inauthentic marketing, and life is too crowded and too busy to pass by opportunities to be genuine, while instead engaging in activities that don't help me grow, flourish or help someone else. I don't think my blogging enriched anyone else's life, and for me, my enjoyment didn't outweigh the nagging feeling that my time could be better spent in a way that connected to others more authentically.
Sorry if my reflection is not very favorable. How could my opinion be changed? I suppose better blog categories could help - I would jump around the list to find blogs to visit, as part of the obligation, but many blogs weren't pertinent to my interests and some had topics that were so diverse and specific, which is totally ideal in the blog world, but not enjoyable for me to visit. Likewise, I bet many of my visitors didn't find mine very interesting! So if all of us bloggers could have a better idea about content, or have a matching system to make blog reading better, and make our own blogs a better experience for readers who are interested, the whole challenge would feel better.

  1. I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the challenge. I like finding new blogs I otherwise wouldn't have found. I know what you mean about the you scratch my back I'll scratch yours but I think genuine connections can come from this if you both genuinely like each other's blogs

  2. Renee I totally agree with you about the preference for organic comments. The topic codes are helpful, but I am interested in so many different topics, I rather enjoyed bouncing around more or less at random. Rather than narrow my focus, I just got more efficient at deciding quickly whether each blog would be something that might entice me to offer an organic comment - like yours :)

For men with confidence problems associated with their body, a great way to augment a change in their body image is Maximum Power XL by using the best natural male enhancers.

  17. slim-quick-keto Studies show that if you have diabetes, pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol, your condition will probably improve if you lose about 10 percent of your body weight.

  20. rapid trim 24/7 What the diet industry doesn't want you to know is that most diet pills, weight loss supplements, and diet programs don't work very well and can even hurt your health more than being fat. If you're interested in being truly healthy, your best option for weight loss is to look at your activity level and the nutritional content of your diet. Work on making fresh vegetables at least half of your diet and take up moderate exercise at about a half hour per day. That's what the U.S. government recommends for optimum health.

  23. horsepower plus Do male enhancement pills work for ALL men? NO...Let me repeat myself...NO male enhancement pills do not work for all men. To date there are NO male enhancement pills whether prescription, non-prescription, or natural herbal male enhancement pills that work 100% of the time for everyone. If any male enhancement product maker claims their product works 100% of the time for everyone, they are making false claims and misleading the consumer that it is going to work for everyone. What many male enhancement pill companys do claim and back is that their products do workfor 85-90% of all men who have taken them. That appears to also be backed by the millions of sexually satisfied male enhancement customers. But more importantly, if you try a male enhancement product and find yourself to be that 1 out of 10 men that the product does not work for, most makers offer a 30 day money back guarantee that states that you simply return the unused product and they will refund your money.

  27. ketofirm forskolin Weight Loss Truth: Although having an intense workout routine is great, there are a few things you should consider: the first being that everyone is at a different level when it comes to their fitness and how much intensity they can actually handle. If you have been physically inactive for a number of years, an intense work out for you might be, walking half a mile a day. After you walk that half mile you notice that you are sweating bullets and that you are tired. However, for someone who has been physically active for many years, walking half a mile can be done without a sweat. Everyone has a different definition of what "intense" is.

  28. biofluxe keto Not being prepared is another reason so many people fail to lose weight. A bit of planning and preparation will go a long way, particularly where food and exercise are concerned.

Keep yourself on track by creating an accountability method-either weigh yourself weekly, set aside an old pair of jeans to try on regularly as a way of monitoring your changing shape, keep a food diary or even organize a regular check in with a weight loss professional.
