2013 A to Z Challenge Reflections: A Few Words
Of my four blogs entered in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, this was the one that I was most intent on seeing through to the end. With A Few Words I was on a mission. This was the blog that contained the most important message that I wanted to convey to the world.
My daily visits were few with probably an average of five or so comments per day and 150 visitors each day. I did not make note of my new followers but I don't think I got any more than 20 or so new followers in April. Last year I presented videos on this blog, but this year with posts of text only I received about five hundred more visitors during the month than I had in 2012.
Considering the amount of promotion this blog receives, I am not displeased with the amount of visits I had during April. I will assume that most of my visits came directly from the A to Z Linky List though there were a few links on other blogs from which visits came. My thanks to Pam Williams at 2 Encourage for providing a link that brought this blog several visitors.
I'm sure many faith bloggers share my situation of few blog comments and visits when compared to blogs of other topics. We are all on a mission that is not always appreciated by many who stop by, but when our message falls upon one who most needs the message then our work is not in vain.
The A to Z Blog Challenge offers an opportunity to reach a few more bloggers who would not normally find us. This April work is not wasted if it plants one seed in the heart of a searching soul or helps to make a life change for someone who needs to be lifted up.
Thank you to all of you who regularly gave me your encouragement and support. Praise God for the blessings that He has made available to all who will receive them. God's goodness will reign for eternity.
