Thanks to the the A-Z team for creating this idea and supporting us all the way through the process, I couldn't have done it without their support.
The aim of my posts was to introduce Greece and the Greeks to the world, a place that I now consider home, despite being British. I hope I managed to capture the essence and truth about this country to people, and judging by the comments received, I think this was achieved successfully.
I met some great blogs and people along the way: Journaling Woman with her great "Stories of the Ruralhood", a 'Brothers Grim' style. I looked forward to her new missive every morning.
Transitional Woman gave me food for thought with her musings, and was spot on with a lot of her observations about life in transition.
Jen at Living Life to the Full also gave food for thought and is a strong woman with her anecdotes whilst Liz in Tenerife mirrored my thoughts about life as an expat in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain.
And finally, a huge "Thank you" goes to singer, songwriter and author Jessica Bell for introducing the A-Z Challenge to me in the first place, for liking my blog and for believing I can finish my book!
The key to successfully finishing the Challenge, I think, was to prepare the posts in advance. I tried this as much as possible- and succeeded for the most part (bar the odd day).
OK, so I didn't come away with over 100 followers, but to me the important thing is to get more traffic of people GENUINELY interested in my blog, who will want to come back and visit it regularly.
So thanks, all of you. My new friends, followers and to the new blogs I've discovered along the way.
Will just about recover before 2013 rolls around!
