Yes! Almost there!

Letter Y: Twenty-fifth of twenty-six posts in the April 2016 Blogging From A to Z Challenge. Wish me luck and please join me as I cross the finish line!

Yes! One more day and Molly’s Canopy will cross the finish line of the April 2016 Blogging From A to Z Challenge — to the roar of a virtual crowd and the sound of imaginary hands clapping (or tapping, as they finish up that last challenge post)!

Fireworks. Yes! Tomorrow I will make it to the end of my first April 2016 Blogging From A to Z Challenge, crossing the finish line with the Zinsk family — my Swiss ancestors. By: Nigel Howe

Now that I am nearly there, I confess that I did not do the sort of pre-challenge preparation one should do before a marathon — even missing the Theme Reveal.

Because it was my first time blogging from A to Z — and I only decided at the last minute to accept the challenge — when the flag went down on April 1, I wondered if I would be just an April fool or make it all the way to the end.

So I sprinted through week one, getting a bit winded and sleep deprived. Then I settled down during week two for the long haul — writing and commenting and meeting new bloggers as I went.

And that turned out to be the best approach — even allowing me some spare time to weigh in at the weekly #azchat on Twitter to see how others were doing.

Tomorrow I will dash across the finish line — hand in hand with the Zinsk family (my Swiss ancestors) — to round out my theme of Ancestors From A to Z.

But today I just want to enjoy the feeling of knowing that I am almost there and Yes! I will finish.

Up next: Swiss family Zinsk. Please stop back for my challenge finale.

  1. Hands clapping Down Under!! You’ve done a great job and yes, that first challenge is an exercise is learning isn’t it?

  2. Satisfying to be almost done, and congrats on being a blogger who accepted the challenge last minute and managed to keep up. It’s tough – the posting is only part of the challenge, the blog hopping is the other part of the challenge. Great job! Maui Jungalow

    1. That means a lot coming from a fellow challenge blogger! I’m still getting caught up on blog hopping. Had a wonderful time visiting yours and congrats on reaching Z.

  3. It’s my first time doing the challenge too! I am so happy this month has passed and I successfully completed the challenge. I signed up early but then I procrastinated and didn’t get any posts scheduled. My husband was consulting in Chile the first week of April so I took advantage of that and pre-scheduled the posts for the hardest letters.

    I just scheduled my Z day post about an hour ago.

    Congrats on successfully finishing the challenge! It’s a pretty big deal.

    1. Thanks, Shelly, same to you! Happy to have completed my first challenge successfully, particularly given my impulsive start. Thanks so much for stopping by throughout 🙂

  4. My first time too, and I also missed the reveal. I wasn’t sure I would finish, but it has been great. Some adventures, some laughs, some nice comments on my posts from fellow bloggers – let me just say the challenge was my saving grace this month.
    And let me say also – no one will guess my Z hehehe!

    1. Congrats on completing the challenge, and you’re right — I would not have guessed your letter Z! Thanks for your visits and comments; great getting to know you and learning about your blog, which I will visit in the future.

  5. It’s the 30th here in Australia, I have posted and now checking out others blogs and comments. Yes the “rush” of energy was a good part of the torture. If I join in next time I will try to get more posts ready to avoid the night before rush though.

    1. Now I am officially across the finish line! Congrats on completing the challenge, and thanks for visiting and commenting. I follow you on Bloglovin’ so I look forward to your Reflections post and many other informative posts in the future 🙂
