#AtoZChallenge: That’s A Wrap

This is my fourth year doing the challenge (although not all on the same blog) and my first time submitting all posts on time. In the words of Borat, “Great success!”

Twenty-six days, twenty-six stories (five of which were repeats), twenty-six sets of doodles. And 105 new doodles were created for those 21 brand-new posts. Considering that I was very slack the past few months, with my average of 2 to 3 posts per month, that’s a lot of new dork material. Now I just need to find a happy middle ground post schedule-wise!

This month saw me blasting to the past — anywhere from a week ago to 23 years ago. There were posts that probably made you fear for our lives a little, posts that warmed your hearts, and posts that probably made you almost lose your lunch. Variety FTW!

Here are the top five posts in terms of likes for the month:

‘U’ is for Uh-Oh – Baby Girl had some leakage on vacation.
‘Z’ is for Zzzz – My daughter makes my anxiety worse at night.
‘S’ is for Surgery – My husband took Valium for his vasectomy, and it was funny.
‘M’ is for Money – I made someone think I’m against a Down Syndrome society.
‘V’ is for Valentine’s Day – My grandmother let my husband almost scare me to death.

Runner up:
‘E’ is for Eating – I accidentally ordered a whole chicken.

The Surgery post was my favorite overall (it’s always fun to write about someone else’s embarrassing moments!), followed closely by ‘J’ is for JTT, because who doesn’t love tween cringe?

Now that it’s all over, I’m going to continue working on that book. I’ve got my categories figured out and have chosen a bunch of different stories to include. Next up: retool some of the stories, create new stories/doodles, and figure out who the heck would publish something like this/check out self-publish options.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to check out the doodled madness this month! What was your favorite post?

I’m a SAHM to two kids. When I’m not doing all the typical mom things (diapers, soccer, etc.), I like writing, reading, and playing games. Clearly I live the life of a rock star.

    1. It does take a while. I wrote my posts before April so that all I’d have to do the day of each post was create doodles. That helped keep me on schedule.

      Definitely πŸ˜€

  1. Brilliant stuff. Congratulations on completing the challenge. It’s not easy to get one done everyday. Handy that you had them prepared, I wasn’t as organised as that 😬 catch up soon and hopefully get to read some past posts that I missed during manic April πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  3. Your blog entries continue to entertain. I enjoy being subscribed to it. Good luck with the book. Once you get it figured out for self-publishing, I’d like to know how it’s done. I have a lot of writing that I would like to publish some day.

    1. Thanks! If I figure it out, I’ll be sure to share. If you’re only looking to put out an e-book, that doesn’t look too tough. Apple has a program you can download called iBook Author that you can use and upload it to the iBook store.
