I have some disappointing news. Even though it is really difficult for me to drop out of something once I’ve committed, I’m afraid I’m going to have to withdraw from this year’s A to Z Challenge.
This was my third year of the A to Z, and I find it so valuable and a lot of fun. I enjoy reconnecting with my blogger friends and discovering new ones to follow. But this year I definitely bit off more than I can chew…and then my personal life imploded. So spending four hours a day writing blogs, reading blogs, and commenting on blogs is not how I can or should spend my time right now.
I’m also leaving the country for part of the month, which was adding a ton of extra pressure.
I will return to the blog in June with renewed energy, posting each Tuesday in the same vein as the topics you’ve enjoyed so far this month. These spooky posts are the regular focus of this blog, so if you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read, please consider signing up to my blog or checking back in June. I’ll respond to any unanswered comments at that time, so hopefully we can get back in touch then.
My apologies to the A to Z committee and everyone else who has been working so hard on the Challenge. If there was any way I could make it work, I would, but it’s just impossible.
I’ll probably be back next year, but I’ll definitely plan things better the next time.
