R: Raisons: Riding on the Pony of Real Reasons (to Take the A-Z Challenge)

The A-Z Challenge is quite the task to take on. At first, I thought it was a nifty idée but that it wasn’t for me. I knew it would require a more steady weekly post, which I wasn’t yet ready for (I worked too much, was pregnant and, therefore, tired all of the time). When I first decided to dive into this challenge, I was still pregnant, but I was no longer working. I thought, “oh, I have plenty of time to blog on a variety of topics before the baby’s born…” And then after writing 5 posts (A-E), my water broke!

So, now, I’m stuck finishing the challenge with a newborn, which is not easy. But, I’m still sticking with the challenge.

My 3 Main Raisons for Taking the Challenge:

  • I was looking into writing on more of a variety of topics – this challenge has enabled me to accomplish this goal.
  • I’m obsessed with alliterations – this challenge forced me to be creative in coming up with titles that matched each letter of the alphabet as well as the theme for the post.
  • I was pregnant, off of work and ready to fill up my days with something more productive than complaining about the Août heat wave in Aix.

If you have a lot of time on your hands and are looking to expand the topics you write about, I totally recommend completing the A-Z challenge. So far, I’m pretty satisfied with the challenge, though it’s taking me longer than I thought to finish it…The point is that I finish the challenge! ♦
