It inspired and excited me so much that the idea for this year's theme popped into my head then and there.
Thus, I ended up changing my mind.
So I did a headlong frenzy of name finding. I internet searched anime lists, I scoured my anime shelves and manga books, and racked my brain to find those ever elusive Q and X letters.
I had to hedge on only one this year. Stupid X. But my X post happens to be in my top ten of absolute favorites. So, all was cool. I was happy about it once I resigned that there wasn't an X anime character name that I had watched and liked.
My first post was prewritten on March 13th and it went on from there. I finally got Y (yes, I finished Z before Y) on April 26th.
But the most wonderful thing was I didn't get sick in the midst of April like I usually do. So that was fantastic.
So onto the awesome and not so awesome.
Thank you everybody who visited my blog this year. Real life kicked my bootie this year with Summer Reading Program prep as well as other catastrophies. So I couldn't get to other blogs as much as I wanted. I wish I could have visited more but life before fun sometimes.
I really, really missed the linky list. It was handy to tab out 10 or more blogs and see what was happening on them. I had a few regulars but not many new ones popping up on my blog this year.
So that was the not so awesome.
The awesome was there were some amazing A to Z blogs I did find. There was the snarky and hilarious posts about Mythology, Hair Bands, and Folklore.
