Z is for Zenith

Yes, I have done it! Huffing and puffing, I have made it to the zenith, the summit of the A to Z Mountain. And I have visited all 1282 A to Z blogs. What a challenge, what fun.

In honor of my fellow Challenge Bloggers, here are 26 of the blogs I especially enjoyed. It was hard to choose, but I had to draw the line somewhere, and 26 seemed the appropriate number. Editor, author, mom, dog whisperer Blogs about writing and science Former physician, current wannabe writer Life of a grandpa on a farm near Malaysian mountain range Here’s a blog I follow regularly. Blog called Her World, with great pictures Great writing tips and prompts Love her uncensored mutterings Really great posts. She also has recipes at
All the news fit to bark about I love the title of this blog—Mulled Whine. Yes, it’s possible to laugh at Alzheimers. Her banner says she’s a senior citizen, tightly clutching her sense of humor for dear life. You gotta love that, especially if you’re also a senior citizen, like me. They do cards and prints. I love their beautiful photos. Call me crazy, but I love grammar. This blogger loves history and writing. Amazing photos Nice posts, good photos and great banner Aspiring author who loves to read Retired knitter (I didn’t know knitters retired) with interesting posts and pictures Seems to know everything about food. Blogged about one food each day for the A to Z Challenge. Full title is Recipes that Please. Can you tell I like to eat? Anne is a member of the SheWrites community. She and I have picked the same images for letters at least twice during the Challenge. Weird. Neat exercises for writers/bloggers. Blogger, cover designer, member of SheWrites community

Thank you so much for including me in your list of your top 26! This Challenge really did help me because I was in a slump...only posting about 3 a month. Hopefully, I can keep up frequent posting for a while and also keep a tight hold on that sense of humor that has helped me out so many times! I hope you keep visiting me and I have you bookmarked as well. God Bless and keep smilin'!!

Thanks so much for following me all month! I've enjoyed your blog as well. I thought the Challenge was a great exercise in putting out spontaneous writing samples. Now it's back to the "query-sending, new-novel-writing" routine for me. Good luck to you!

Thelma, thank you from the bottom of my heart for listing me. I am truly honored to be mentioned among the 26.

I am also quite impressed that you were able to visit each and every blog of the challenge! I plan to, but am afraid it will take several months to get through them all. Congrats to you!
