The Many Works of Pat Hatt
May 9, 2016
The cat is always too far ahead with something else to say to do any reflecting on the a to z. So I figured I could do it here.
I found it basically to be the same as any other year. A few new followers and commenters who actually read and comment. We’ll see how long they blog for, but they seem to be ones that are around. Besides that, learning more about followers, and it makes the cat’s month easier post wise, not sure what else to say positive wise.
There seemed to be a lot of spam ones on the list there for a while. A lot of quitters half way through, if that, as well. Then of course there were those who think they are holier than thou and never return a comment. I’d say if you visit 100 new blogs, maybe 15% of them comment back, if that. And there are lots who come around and copy and paste the same comment everywhere, pfffft to them. Like I can’t tell. Riiight.
Finding actual quality bloggers like those I interact with now is few and far between with the a to z as few seem to get blogging is a social thing. Not just a throw something up and hope people will magically read it with no effort on your part thing. Then of course there were a few with crap comment systems, big long drawn out posts every single post and font that is hard on the head. Those are always out there though as they never learn.
Also the A to Z lite I think is a good idea for many, but does that really count as a challenge? I’m not sure it fits the definition of the word as it is not very hard. Even if you have a lot to say, 5-10 posts is a lot easier than 26. So I do think it is a good idea to maybe take the stress off some, but I can’t say I buy it in any way as a challenge.
Did you do the a to z? Notice anything that I didn’t along the way? Think the a to z lite is challenging?
Enjoy life, forget the strife.
