#AtoZChallenge Reflection Post 2022

May 30, 2022

The A to Z Blogging Challenge ended on 30 April. Usually I would publish my Reflection post, a day or two later, however this year, due to a broken arm, my post is very much overdue. I was so relieved on the day that my Z post was published, that I just needed time out. Even though I’m still only able to use my left hand, it’s healing quite well, so it’s time to get my Reflection post done. This will be a shorter than usual reflection post, as I struggle with left handed typing.

This year is my eighth year participating in the challenge. My intention was to be super organised, with all posts ready by day 1. My theme was Family Stories. In early December 2021, I began writing drafts, which in some cases involved research. By mid March, I had completed the first 15 posts, with the drafts of the next 11 being complete. I had no doubt that I was on track to have all posts complete by 1 April.

That was when I broke my right arm and ruined all my good intentions. From the letter Q on I really struggled to get my posts up every day. Because of the arm, I wasn’t working, so had more time than usual to read other blogs. However, I wasn’t able to comment as much as I’d have liked.

I did plan to learn how to type with voice control, but I didn’t feel like learning something new at the time so didn’t bother. Looking back, I wish that I’d done that as there would probably have been less stress.

Each of the years that I’ve participated in this challenge, I’ve really enjoyed it. I did enjoy reading other blogs, however my enjoyment this time was diminished due to the broken arm. In hindsight, I probably shouldn’t have gone ahead with it, but I couldn’t resist.

Having said all that, I will be back for the challenge in 2023, all being well.
