Reflecting on the April A to Z Challenge 2015

A-to-Z Reflection [2015]

A Big Thank You!

Woohoo! I actually finished the A to Z Challenge on time this year. Last year I had some trouble and ended posting late but this April was an actual success. Well, mostly. I was super busy this month with classes, blog posting, and trying to keep my life together.

But I loved visiting all the new and wonderful blogs I discovered during the challenge. Even though I fell behind on commenting towards the end, I greatly appreciate all of the fantastic people who stopped by my blog.

This Year’s Theme

My theme for this year’s challenge was blogging about the most beautiful libraries from around the world. And I had an amazing time researching and sharing all of those gorgeous locations. I was really surprised by all of the breathtaking architecture and lovely book nooks from each library I was able to share.

Some of my favorites were, well, all of them. I really liked this year’s roundup even more than last year’s. You can check out all of my favorites here.

The League of Legendary Ladies

League of Extraordinary LadiesI also want to give a shout out to the awesome A to Z Team the League of Legendary Ladies:

I was an A to Z minion on the team and tasked with my, you know, miniony duties during the challenge. We all had a lot of fun.

What’s To Come?

Next year, I’m starting with an entirely new theme for the A to Z Challenge. It’ll be something bookish that’s for sure, and I hope you’ll join me again. In the meantime, I’ll be catching up on all the blogs I may have missed in April.

And I’m starting on catching up with the A to Z Challenge Reflections Linky List. If you haven’t already joined the list, you can still signup until May 10th. And be sure to check out the other bloggers’ reflections.

So what did you think of the A to Z Challenge?

  1. I really enjoyed yoru challenge, Lanise. So many wonderful palces.
    I can’t wait to see what you’ll come up for next year. I’m already starting to planning myself! 😉

    This is a continuous game of cathing up. I’m still discovering blogs I’d love to read, I haven’t really explored the REflection list (I’ve just beeing visiting the blogs I followed, so far). Work work work… but what joy! 🙂

    I’ll se you around!

  2. Next year I may actually choose a theme…I’ve always just posted photos related to A – Z, and it worked…but who knows what I could come up with?
    There are a ton of good blogs out there, and so little time to keep up with them! At least that’s how it is for me.
    I don’t know how you had time to be a “minion” and do the challenge! That’s pretty impressive.

  3. I too, really enjoyed this year’s challenge. I’m going to have to come back to yours and catch up. There are so many blogs I missed, even though I visited new ones every day! Great job, and wasn’t co-hosting a blast?! I felt more a part of the challenge than in the previous 3 I’ve done. I couldn’t possibly list all my favorite ones, though I know some have… Also wondering if you’re going to post on the #IWSG today?! Came a lookin’. Lisa, co-host #IWSG, @

  4. It was great to meet you through being minion mates for the League of Legendary Ladies. I’ve been referring to it as Team Macha because I think that’s the goddess depicted there? Anyhow, there were many gorgeous libraries, some that were truly palatial. Definitely interacted with more bloggers this year than last and experienced the sense of community.
