A to Z Reflections 2016

A-to-Z Reflection [2016]

I am extemely glad on one hand that i could survive the  A to Z April Challengewhile on the other i had hiccups catching up with the Global Poetry Writing Month tooMy third year of AZ blogging was smoother than the previous ones as there were few lessons learnt from them.However, the theme gave the required twists; Lotttt of research was involved to keep up the quality of the posts and to bring in my poetic mind too.

Old is always gold 🙂 while my old friends did stand by my side all along, i had the opportunity to meet a variety of like minded bloggers this year who made this challenge even more interesting and i am already looking forward for the next year 😉

A to Z Reflections 2015

 

 

I have done it!!I have done it again 🙂 Yes, but not without difficulty. I had taken the lessons learnt from last year of scheduling posts when i got them set as only later did i realise that the theme i chose was phew…quiet a tough one. But i am glad i could do it effectively.Teasing my brain the whole month was fun,though i seriously needed a break.With this post,i feel fresh to start again….

Heres the Life lessons at a go (from birth to death):

And the ‘Life’ begins!!!

Believe me,it doesnt matter

Conjure up expectations for Life

Dreaming may sometimes be injurious 

Everyone has a task to do

Friendship has no limits

Get up and Get going

Hatred dwells in most poisonous minds

In search of our destiny

Juvenile learnings

Kindle the little joys within

Life Rewards the DO-ers

Make the ‘magic of love’ work always

Now that will make a difference

Oblivious??

Plastic world

Question remains,will anybody answer?

Remember this along…

Show time…so play on

Thus spake the soul within

Usher us the right way

Vested power in you

Wisdom comes from Living

Xelfualizee

Yearning doesn’t seem to end

Zag end of the journey

 

Only one question from my family and friends,who saw me working out relentlessly, which i couldnt answer is “what if you complete this challenge” cos’ i even couldnt show them  zooming stats aswell  😦 If it were a blogger friend,i would have told,  its not always traffic which really matters, people who genuinely appreciate your work is enough to bring a smile on your face, maybe they can understand it. In these two years ,i had learnt a lot about the blogosphere and blogging, however, there are few areas i still have to work on.

 

I like to Thank my blogger friends from the past who stood with me most of the time despite their own commitments; and my new friends for encouraging me throughout.Thank the A to Z team for all their backstage support. Though the challenge has ended am sure the bloglove continues.

 

A to Z Reflections 2014

 

A-to-Z Reflection [2014]

 

This is a great relief to me that I have successfully completed my first A to Z blog challenge for this year 2014. As this was my first year, I had to really gear up with things from time to time. And so I opted to choose a theme instead of random postings which might have taken a toll on me.

Luckily my work cooperated for dedicating some quality time to blogging and so I could schedule my posts on weekly basis…Lessons learnt J

Let me tell you, I haven’t had so much fun blogging ever and this month is indeed a good one which helped me continue my blogging spirit. I hope I haven’t let anyone down with all those tipsy tips along with my punny poems 😉

Finally:

 

To my learnings, being first timer, I reflect

To the hard work that went through, I reflect

To my teased brain for delivering on-time, I reflect”

“To #Team Damyanti for their support, I thank

To my fellow bloggers for their help, I thank

To my viewer friends whose comments valued, I thank
