A-Z 2015 – reflection

The A-Z month went quite fast
And I blogged from the first to the last.
I read what I could
(though not what I should)
But all in all I had a blast

My theme of phonetics of NATO
Was as mushy as mashed sweet potato.
It would have been worse
Had I chosen to verse
The musings of someone like Plato

I followed a number of blogs
About language and countries and dogs;
It really was fun,
I enjoyed every one
With their stories of frogs, logs and clogs

But now it has come to the end
The month has no more days to lend
I can no longer type
Any more of this tripe
If I do, I’ll go right round the bend!

But into more blogs I’ll be dipping
As on the Road Trip I’ll be skipping
I’ll be reading a load
As I follow the road;
In the words of the song, “Yo tripping”

As my contribution to the A-Z blogging challenge this year, I offered each day a limerick containing the day’s key word, the key words being based on the NATO phonetic alphabet. atoz [2015] - BANNER - 910

    1. Thank you, Debbie. I seem to have stalled, or run out of fuel, very early on the road trip this year. I really must make more effort. Thanks for the wake-up call.


    1. Thank you, Melissa; There are a lot of blogs to visit, and I have no idea how long it will take to do the list justice. The efforts people have gone to, in order to complete the challenge, mean it is essential for me at least to try.


  1. Congrats and a fun reflections post! I’ve got a soft spot for limericks. I guess it goes back to devouring Edward Lear as a child. I’ll be sure to come back to check out more posts.


    1. Thank you, Nick. I started the month unsure whether using limericks every day would work, but have been more than delighted with the reception they’ve had.


  2. Have found you through your original/fun reflection. Spending time with your blog, I thought, now this is for me. I’m your brand new follower. This is what I love about the challenge, finding a site that has my name on it. I will look forward to future posts. This was my 3rd year in the challenge, I’ve learned a lot, my reflection shows I have some opinions concerning what works and what doesn’t. Come and see me. If not writing, I’m in the garden. It’s beautiful spring in North Carolina.


    1. Thank you, Stepheny, and I’m glad you enjoyed some of my limericks. I have been delighted with the reception they had. I’m off to look at your blog now…


  3. Hello there.
    Well done for completing the challenge!
    I’ve not yet had a chance to read any of your posts…I started my visiting beginning with the blogs immediately after me. As I meander through the signup linky throughout the year, I’m sure I’ll come across your blog again! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you for visiting and commenting. I’m glad you enjoyed the theme, and I have to confess that I really enjoyed producing the limericks every day. Looking forward to next year already.


    1. It was a great month, wasn’t it? I now have 11 months to work on an idea for next year. I have been toying with an alternative phonetic alphabet, which I call the ‘frenetic alphabet’. I just need to find a body of words to fill that group.
      Thank you again for your support and, as they say hereabouts, à l’année prochaine.
