Just a short post as still unpacking from the weekend - oh it was amazing, everything we had spent months planning - perfect (well, not quite perfect, no Joe and no dress). Haven't even had a chance to edit the photos yet!
So, the A-Z? I was much more organised than last year so had the posts all typed and scheduled (and that was a fab trick I learned last year through the A-Z website) ahead of time. The reason was twofold, one so that I could spend more time visiting other sites and two because I knew the closer it got to the 2nd May the less time I would have. Turned out a wise move :)
The visits? I think I visited around 450, left comments on about 80%. The other 20%, tbh they didn't 'tick my box' and I don't mean that in a negative way, just a fact. Not everybody likes everything - I'm sure there was plenty of people that landed on my page and swiftly moved on! Found some new blogs that really clicked and now following via blogger - google+ or twitter. Loving the many options.
Visitors. Now I know we don't visit just to get visit back, but that is supposed to be part of it right? Hmmmmmm, enough said.
I did notice a huge decrease in the number of comments the last week - not sure if that was because I was mega stressed and not putting the time in, or whether there's a general apathy towards the end of the month?
On being a minion. TBH it didn't feel a whole lot different as I was visiting and mostly making comments anyway. The only difference was forwarding the info to my master LOL! I checked my allotted numbers every 3-4 days and every single time found some that had stopped or not even started.
Overall I loved taking part. In my last post I apologised for lack of input at the end - will make sure next year I don't plan any major events! If this is your first visit, this post should explain why we were so busy!
