As those of you who're participating in the A to Z challenge this month must also have realized: this challenge is no joke. Keeping up with blogging, answering comments, reading others' blogs, commenting on them, work, family, etc. is a lot to fit into a day!
That's not, of course, to say that I'm not enjoying the experience quite a bit. I've gotten to meet and interact with so many fantastic people, and I've discovered so many blogs that I expect to keep reading long after A to Z is over. These past few weeks have been a whirlwind of awesome.
But I have family coming into town to visit starting tomorrow, and then a few frantic days at work after they leave, and then a long-awaited trip with yet more family... and I'm not sure how I'm going to get it all done. So this post is my announcement that the paring down of the posts has officially begun. I hope you'll bear with me; I still have so much to say, I'm just going to try and keep it brief. (Not my strong suit, clearly, as this several-paragraphs-long "paring down" post demonstrates, heh).
All I'm saying is, I'm pretty jealous of those people who decided to post 5 word poems or something. In retrospect, I think they're geniuses.
So. Shorter posts from me, starting now. But the same amount of joy to see you all stop by, and to read your blogs. :)
One month. 26 posts. A to Z. (Don't know what I'm talking about? Check out the Challenge here.)
