Thanks to all the committed bloggers who posted all through April.  Thanks to those who visited me and especially those who signed up to follow.  Thanks to the great A to Z group who puts this together every year.  And now, after a month of nothing but blog-related activities, I'm nodding off......

I'm afraid I haven't been able to do as much visiting as I should, but I ended up with other commitments in April (of all times!). In May I will be visiting more. I have been enjoying yours!

Wow, you made it to every blog?! You are amazing.

And thank you so much for selecting my blog for your list. I had a great time sharing my adventures in Great Britain. And I had an equally good time reading the blogs I visited, though I don't think I'll ever get through them all.

Enjoy your zzzz's. I'll be taking a much needed break as well.

You are amazing to have visited all those blogs. I began under my blog, went from there and covered 10-20/day. Thank you so much for thinking of me and including Oak Lawn Images in your list of 26, this year. I feel very humbled and honored.
I will certainly visit the other 25, and join, if I haven't already.

I am truly impressed that you were able to make it to every blog. I started out with those intentions, but I am afraid it did not work that way. I did get to over half of them though!

This was a fun list to see, and I am honoured to be amongst your 26. Thank you Thelma :-)

Denine

Fabulous list of blogs. I didn't manage to get around everybody, but will continue to slowly move through all the A-Z blogs, including following several ones you list here, Thelma.

Thanks for taking the time to visit every blog. That is truly amazing, and you have a new follower. Thank you for the honour of making your list also.

Am so amazed you managed to visit every one - I'm still stumbling around - well done you - I wonder how many have managed that.

Thank you so much for your mention, so pleased you enjoyed mine - they were great fun to write - I love doing this challenge (my second year)- I'm going to be sure to check out the other 25 on this list as soon as I get back from my birthday lunch - thanks again

Thanks for the recommendation Thelma - pleased to be featured as one of your favourite blogs.
Should correct that my Leaving Cairo...blog is about leaving Cairo in Egypt and returning to Greece.

Well done on completing the Challenge.

Wow, this is amazing. I'm going to check out all the blogs. I can't believe you visited every blog.

Maryann Miller said... [Reply to comment]

Thelma, I am so honored to have my blog listed on your favorites list. To quote another colloquialism, "Well, I'll be snickered." Or is that snockered? Wait, I think that means a bit under the influence. LOL

I am also blown away that you visited every blog in the challenge. That was over a thousand. Whew, I'm tired just thinking about all the time you spent. I was not such a good blogger friend. I visited three or four a day, some days more, and probably only hit about 200.

You are too kind Dear for giving me such an honor. Thank you!! I can't believe you managed to visit every blog listed on the A to Z Challenge. Kudos to you!!

Susan Flett Swiderski said... [Reply to comment]

WOW! You visited every single blog??? Holy moley. Hats off to you. That's a heckuva lot of exercising. (Blog-hopping DOES qualify as exercise, right?)I stopped by on Maryann's recommendation, especially to read your X post. OY! Political correctness has gotten completely out of hand, hasn't it? Anyway, congrats on making it the distance, and count me in as your newest follower.

Wow....I can't believe you visited every blog. Amazing!!!That's a lot of blog-visiting and reading.
I'm guessing it was a lot of fun too! Thanks for adding me to your favourites list, your kindness is much appreciated! ~R

Wow! What an honor to be on your list. I'm humbled and thankful. Also a new follower.

Kathi Oram Peterson said... [Reply to comment]

Thanks for referencing my blog. :) The challenge has been great. Now to go visit the other blogs you've listed.

Carol Apple said... [Reply to comment]

What a great list of blogs! Makes me want to bookmark this page so eventually I can get to all of them too.

Donna Sexton said... [Reply to comment]

Thanks so much for selecting my blog in your list. It's amazing that you visited all those blogs. I managed to see a couple a day and started following some, but will definitely check out the others on your list.

Dazediva said... [Reply to comment]

Its so awesome that you have managed to visit every blog participating in the A to Z Challenge !! That's a hell of a lot of reading to do !

Thank you so very much for including me in your list of favorite blogs. I'm truly impressed you made it to every single blog. Congrats! That's quite a task. What with preparing for my trip and trying to write the blogs, I didn't make it. But I shall visit every blog you chose and then try and hit as many as I can before I poop out.

Arlee Bird said... [Reply to comment]

You have some wonderful blogs on your list. Alana from Writercize was a big help to me prior to the Challenge so I'm particularly glad you recognized her.


Congratulations on making it through the A to Z Challenge. Join us on May 7th with your Challenge Reflections post.
