2013 A-Z Reflections Post

I survived another year of A-Z!  Wahoo!  I nearly missed this post.  It's been so crazy lately for me.  I apologize for the delay on this one.  I chose Chaucer for my A-Z theme this year because I like classic literature.  Chaucer was a favorite of mine way back when and I decided to reread the Canterbury Tales.  In hindsight I don't know what the hell I was thinking.  LOL!  Still, I rallied and did the entire A-Z posts.  I think it was an accomplishment--although I'm sure most of my readers were like...snore.  :)  Oh well.  I did my best to keep the posts short, but that proved impossible for the majority of my posts.  I apologize for that.  Anyway, its been fun. :)
Before I forget, I'd like to thank all the people that helped the A-Z challenge during the month of April.  Not only did these blogger buddies post for A-Z, but they tirelessly trolled the blogosphere to comment and show team spirit for the A-Z cause.  In short, these folks are awesome.  Here is a list of all those wonderful people.  Thank you.  Thank you. Thank you!

I enjoyed your posts. They made me think.
That was really nice of you to recognize all of the minions. They really made a big difference this year.

I enjoyed your Chaucer posts, too; they made me want to read the tales again, for enjoyment rather than for an assignment!

Mark Means said...

I like your theme even though I'm only mildly familiar with the Tales, it was still very interesting. I also didn't realize just how diverse and spanning the Tales were, so thank you for the education :)

Also, thank you for the was my first time helping and had a great time with that, as well.

I loved your theme, it was nice to revisit some of my favourite Chaucer stories :)

Your Chaucer posts triggered long-forgotten memories... it was good refreshing them (though some were completely "unrefreshable"... just blank spots) he!he!
Thanks for the minion shout outs! And for recognizing the amazing AtoZ team in it's entirety!
