A to Z Challenge — Reflections

9659909C-5156-4B0C-9250-F2280DBF771ASo this is where we’re supposed to reflect upon our experiences during last month’s A to Z Challenge. Here goes.

Even though April has only 30 days. I published more posts in April (108) than in any previous month. And I also got more comments than in any previous month, as well. So that was good.

As far as the challenge itself, I sort of winged it. I didn’t have a particular theme, other than “other,” which seems perfectly appropriate for a blog titled “This, That, and the Other.”

I also composed most of my posts either the night before, or on the day, they were “due.” None of this composing posts way in advance for me. Who has time for that?

I did end up following a few additional bloggers who also commented on my challenge posts and I think I gained maybe a dozen new followers during the month, but I can’t specifically attribute that to my challenge posts.

To be honest, there were so many participants in the challenge that I only read a very small fraction of the posts associated with the challenge, most of which were from bloggers I already follow.

But bottom line, even though I said “Yay, it’s over” once the month came to an end, I’m really glad that I participated. It was fun coming up with a post each day based upon a different letter of the alphabet.

If you’re interested in reading all of (or any of) my A to Z Challange posts, just click on the “A to Z Challenge” category on my blog and then take your pick.

By the way, my two most viewed and commented on Challenge posts were:

D is for Doppelgänger and M is for Masturbation.

      I don’t have any good answers for you, Sight. We’re all different and we each perceive the world in our own unique way. Humor and music have always been important to me. I try to see the humor in everything, although that’s getting harder and harder these days. But I’ll never stop looking for it and trying to recognize the best in others, rather than assuming the worst. And music does, indeed, soothe the savage beast. I know you’re a big “bah humbug” guy when it comes to music, but you might want to try to just close your eyes and let it wash over you, allow it to transport you to perhaps a happier, or at least more content, place.

      If you want to express happiness and humor, you need to genuinely FEEL happiness and humor. And in order to do that, you might have to have an attitude adjustment, to experience a paradigm shift. Try to focus on the light and not the darkness, the good and not the bad.

      But what do I know? I’m not a shrink and I don’t play one on TV. But if you honestly can’t feel or express happiness and/or humor, you might want to talk with someone who has the credentials to help you.

      And by the way, for what it’s worth, I have found many of your comments on my and others’ blogs to exhibit humor.

          Just remember that my insight was free. And you know what they say about free advice.

      Thank you, BDC. I’m glad you find my posts entertaining. But please, if you start feeling the urge to masturbate to them, I don’t wanna know about it.
