Last year I learned about the A to Z challenge just as it started, so I was “on the hop” right from the beginning writing my stories about places of family importance which we’d visited here or overseas. This left me with less time to read as many other blogs as I’d have liked. This year I had my plan laid out, and some posts scheduled so have been able to do better.
Here are just some of the blogs I’ve visited this week. The temptation for the coming weeks will be to keep revisiting my new favourites at the expense of checking out some others. In case you haven’t visited any of these why not give them a go. So many people are writing wonderful stories based on their experience and expertise -it’s a great opportunity to read some good stories, see some great photos and learn more about so many topics.
Also a big thank you to all those who’ve dropped by my blog and especially those who’ve taken the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one!
Destination Unknown (compare your Bucket List with Kellie’s) I’m a travel nut and love photography so Kellie is my Pick of the Week, even though there are other excellent blogs in the A to Z. I can’t wait to see where she’ll take us next week.
