Z is for Zest
Z is for Zest. One of the definitions of zest according to the Merriam - Webster online dictionary is 'an enjoyable exciting quality. I joined the A to Z Blogging Challenge with zest. I knew it would be a difficult task for me to write the posts each day (excluding Sundays) but I really wanted to try hard. I was right, it wasn't always easy, but it was mostly rewarding. My blog had been mostly a solitary thing with only a handful of followers. I wrote mostly book reviews with a very few posts about life in between the reviews. I've finished this challenge with 44 followers. Wow! That astounds me. What is most incredible to me is that these are people who have absolutely no connection to me except that they stumbled on my little blog through this challenge. It's amazing to know that some of them will continue to stop by periodically to see what I've written. My goal is to continue to write about all sorts of things. Oh, I'll still be posting my book reviews and I'll definitely be joining some other challenges. So, I started this challenge with zest , I feel like most of my posts have been written with zest , and I've finished it with zest. I look forward to the challenge next year and I look forward to my visits to some way cool blogs I found while surfing the challenge sites. Thanks!!!
