The marathon has ended!  I know yesterday’s post was the finish line, but it didn’t feel right to move on without some sort of recap.  I’ll start out by thanking Megan over at A Geeky Gal for the last month of geeky fun! I highly recommend that anyone who found my posts interesting give this challenge a try.  You can find the full list of topics here.

Looking back, I had a lot of fun with this challenge.  I came across it when I was on the verge of falling into a blogging rut and having something fresh to think and post about really helped me find the inspiration I needed to get through it.  It wasn’t always easy, indeed I needed to take a short break to keep up with my personal schedule and not all the prompts touched on topics I was interested in, but on the whole I thought this was a very rewarding process.  I found myself enjoying not only thinking about the content of my posts but also simply the challenge of coming up with something every day. Regarding that second point I dare say I may have even learned some valuable lessons about managing my blogging time and streamlining my posting process.  I definitely made adjustments as the days progressed and now feel much better prepared should I do one of these again.

I think that if/when I do take on another challenge (I am certainly open to it), I might go for one that is a bit shorter in duration.  Keeping it up for a whole month was sometimes a bit tough between work, travelling, and child care and I also missed the chance to share of my regular content with you all.  (Don’t worry, the backlog is coming!). That said, I had a ton of fun with this and hope that you the follower did as well. At this point, though, I think I need to take a day off and go grab a much deserved beer!
