This month’s insecurity – Is the time required to complete the AtoZ Challenge worth the effort?
I’ve been following several efriends as they post every day on a themed topic. I have to say, it’s been quite fun, reading these intertwined posts. For those who don’t know, AtoZ requires a post every day, for 26 days, one for each letter of the alphabet, usually all revolving around one topic (but not necessarily). If I were to start, I’d have to start immediately–well, in June–to get done by April, 2017.
My question: Is it worth this effort? For those of you who have done it: What do you get out of it that makes you return year after year? Or why one-and-done? I’d love to know before I take the plunge.
