I feel happy not to be doing the A to Z Challenge this year. I took part in the challenge in its first year and the two after that. On each occasion I was confident I would knock out posts in about 3 seconds and devote time to other fascinating pursuits such as watching goldfish. How wrong I was.
This is bittersweet because I made some great blogging pals along the way. However, there comes a time in everyone's life when they have to turn around and say no to A to Z and I am at that parting of the ways. So long and thank you for the fish.
My five reasons not to do the A to Z Challenge:
1 I can't be bothered
2 My theme this year was going to be Aspects About the Inside of a Ping Pong Ball, which may have been challenging
3 I became tired of trying to knock out posts about exotic forms of armadillos at 11 p.m.
4 Good concept but it may have had its day. Do you ever see people still doing the Rubik's Cube?
5 I can't think of a 5. If I can't think of a 5 how could I think of an A to Z? I would seriously consider doing an A to C Challenge. Where can I download the badge?
Good luck to all of you who are doing it. I offer consultancy services and counseling at a reasonable rate.
