Reflections of My AtoZ 2019

To begin with, thank-you so much to the atoz challenge organizers. I had participated with atozchallenge as well as blogchatter too. I also Congratulate myself on another successful completion and survivor of 26 A-to-Z Challenge blog posts.

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary Reflections badge

Year 2019 marks my second time with A to Z challenge. This challenge is about posting daily for each 26 alphabets A to Z in the month of April. This year, I was confused on many themes from travel to food, parenting to stories and lot more, but then decided to wear the mommy hat and help tackle the tiffin tantrums and provide AtoZ of tiffin/ lunchbox ideas.

I was afraid that how will I manage to post so many healthy and fun tiffin ideas but then the mother’s instincts helped me sail the boat and I survived the month-long challenge that too with kids exams in the beginning and later one local club even organizing kept me on toes literally. But with so many co-bloggers around I was motivated all through the month.

It was a great journey in AtoZ April 2019 and I am happy to have survived it successfully. Read some very beautiful and nice blogs, made lots of like-minded friends on blogosphere and learned a lot from each blog post. Happy blogging and happy snacking, feel free to pick the choice of your tiffin from my Fire tatwa cafe.

I read so many wonderful atoz bloggers this year and some made there mark for there beautiful and structured writings. I connected to many stories whom kept me glued to my PC to get more info on them and excitement to know the more of it.

I proudly share my survivor badge as this helps me stay motivated to write regularly.
