#AtoZChallenge Reflection 2018

With the end of AtoZ Challenge, it’s good to evaluate successes and failures. AtoZ is a massive commitment (a post a day for a month; lots of visits to new bloggers–overall, a couple hours a day in my case). This is my second time on this popular blog hop and my question is, Do I join again next year?

Here are my thoughts:

  • The program requires a blog a day for 26 days in the month of April. Surprisingly, it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. I pre-wrote and scheduled all of the articles on my topic, Writing Genres, so most of my time was spent visiting other posts and responding to comments from people who found me. That did take 2ish hours a day, but when it’s as interesting as it turned out to be, I didn’t notice (except, of course, I didn’t get my other work done).
  • I committed myself to not only posting my article but responding to all comments, visiting commenters, and visiting about 15-20 other AtoZ participants every day. Visitees came from a list folks signed up on my blog ahead of time and AtoZ’s master list.
  • When I started, I asked readers to sign up on a Google Forms list if they were participating and I’d visit them each day. My goal had been to support each other by at least reciprocal visits. That didn’t happen. I think many of these folks did visit and leave a ‘like’ but not a comment. I really didn’t get to know them as I’d hoped. I probably won’t do this next year.
  • Some rough (very rough) data:
    • Overall, I had fewer visitors than usual–not the goal! I usually get between 1000-1500 a day. In April, I got between 900-1300 per day. Speculation: Too many posts? One theme that may or may not appeal to people? Hmm…
    • Overall, AtoZ April was my lowest month for comments in almost 2 years (December 2017 was lower but every December is). That surprised me. I know I commented on a ton more posts than usua. I knew to make A to Z worth would require I visit lots more people. Again, hmmm….
    • In an odd way this lower engagement makes sense. People visited my AtoZ posts on genres who were interested in the theme. Those posts were significantly different from my usual posts (writing tips, writing and tech, and book reviews). When I dug into the WordPress data for how I did after last year’s AtoZ, it was similar. That moved me from Hmmm… to Yikes!
    • My most commented on post was the first, Anthology, with the second (Blog) as the second-most commented.
  • Good stuff: By visiting other participants, I got a mini-education in quite a few topics I am now conversant in.
  • It took me all 30 days to get through the long list of entrants on the AtoZ master list in my genre (writing)–and even then, I missed some.
  • I was surprised how many people clicked ‘like’ without adding a comment. To me, AtoZ is about connecting.
  • I’m staying in touch with many of the bloggers I meant during this Challenge–and they’re doing the same. I think we all recognize the commitment it takes to build a successful online platform and we’re willing to help each other.

Overall, not what I expected. I love the new people I met and all the new info I stuffed into my brain. But I don’t think it worked for building my blog (for example, I didn’t get many new followers). That’s why I participated but I’m now wondering how much that matters. Really, I don’t have an answer for that.

The question is: Should I do AtoZ again? I’d love to hear from you–what you did differently that made things work better.

  1. As much as I like to participate in these blog events and see the value in them, I don’t have the time to commit. Though it is interesting from what you have analysed is the drop in numbers to your blog. I know I haven’t been online much this year, not by choice, perhaps this is the reason why. I’ve enjoyed reading your AtoZ challenges, and have learnt a lot from them. If you enjoyed the process, then you’ve achieved your goal 😀

  2. Interesting, Jacqui. Possible the new format, the news A-Z list, had something to do with page clicks and so on. Not sure. Love reading your posts, and here you are with a great Reflections post. I was so drained by the challenge, I had to stop after the Z post. Congrats!

  4. I never participated in he A-Z challenges but admire all those who commit themselves to it because it’s just such a huge amount of work. And I have to admit of being guilty to comment mostly when the subject speaks to me in one way or another. Traffic in my blog is far less than it is in yours so I don’t really check the stats but normally notice that the more I post it also declines. Probably because every one is so busy keeping up.with all the blogs they follow. 😉

  5. For an avid blog reader like me, the A-Z challenge is quite overwhelming. It is impossible to keep up with so many daily posts from amazing bloggers. So much so that I actually avoided many of the A-Z posts (yours not included because I found the topic very interesting). Just my little two pennies worth.

  6. I enjoy A-Z, but it is quite exhausting managing the daily commitment. Perhaps that’s why some people only liked and didn’t comment? But I agree the point is to make connections and discover new blogs you might not have otherwise. I had a goal to visit 2 new sites every day and I managed that (I went a little over), but to do more than that would have been tricky. I’ve got a theme for next year, but whether or not I commit will depend on how my time is looking in the lead up to April ’19.

  7. 15-20 blogs a day ? That’s an amazingly large number to skim through in 2 hours! And 1300 visitors a day – that’s enviable. I was thrilled when I got my 119th visitor in a day for the first time ever. Obviously my content is not engaging else I have targetted the wrong audience.
    I found that joining the Ato Z makes little difference to my traffic…. infact this year I had even less visitors in April simply because my regular visitors were doing the A to Z and since I wasn’t, they naturally gave my blog the skip, especially when I didn’t leave a comment…..
    I was personally tied up with a family health issue and couldn’t visit your blog as regularly as I’d promised myself I would because I find your posts highly informative.

For what it’s worth, I do MEAN to look back at these blog posts, and I linked back to one of them this week 🙂 I have a hard time keeping up with daily posts from anyone I follow- I just don’t get online every day, and if I get behind in a series I have a hard time jumping into the middle- but that may just be me.

    I liked this year’s A-Z challenge too. It’s only up to you to decide if you are going to do it next year ❤ Some decisions can't be influenced by us. It's up to your available time, and what else you want to do in April.

  10. Your summation is bang on Jacqui; I felt last year was more engaging for me than this year but the stats show they were the same – for traffic and comments both.
    I participate to build my writing stamina as I tend to lag over a posting discipline. I tried to visit as many blogs as the ones who visited me but failing to do that in some cases. Its a pretty time consuming challenge and does get a little hectic. So that would explain the falling in the number of readers 🙂

  11. Since this stream of comments has been particularly strategic, I am going to share some questions that I only recently started wondering about… How many bloggers hope to earn money from their blogs by allowing advertisements to appear on their site? How many actually earn money by allowing advertisements on their site? And how many alienate a bunch of their followers by allowing advertisements on their site? Maybe there are already many articles/posts written about this topic?

    • Well, WordPress.com doesn’t allow advertising but I do have ads on my teacher blog (https://askatechteacher.com). I hope they’re tasteful, on-topic, and they help pay the bills. Hosting a blog is expensive if you self-host and have a high volume of hits. I don’t mind ads on blogs if they are on-topic. For example, on a writer blog, I wouldn’t mind seeing Scrivener or Adobe because they relate to our work.

      How about you?

  12. Interesting test Jacqui. No doubt your regular followers would still visit, but like you said, the posts were different from what the ‘regular’ visitors come to expect. And also, those readers who have their favorite genres may not all be interested in all the other genres, despite the tedious work involved to put them together. Like Tina mentioned above, I don’t normally participate in blog hops and admire those who can find the time to contribute posts for a whole month. 🙂

  13. Hi Jacqui,
    I’m too am really into data (our education training?), but I didn’t look at my google analytics at all in April. What I did notice is that I lost some regular followers and then, at the end, picked up some new ones. Nothing startling in terms of numbers, and I doubt that I’ll do the challenge again.
    However, and this is a big however, I would not have met you if I hadn’t done the challenge so that alone makes it worthwhile to me to have done it.

    • How funny, Karen. Your blog stands out to me also. I can’t tell you how many resonated personally with me. I think the key will be if my readership rises over the next six months, meaning I keep the new viewers.

      Actually, I’m pretty fine either way (except you. You’re stuck with me).

  14. I don’t do blog hops, Jacqui, because the payback often is far less than the input. If you see it as an investment, where the return averages about 2%, then perhaps it’s valuable. But for me, the time required far outweighs the benefits. There are many other ways to meet new bloggers and gain followers, ways that don’t require such an enormous amount of time per day. Commitment to a challenge like this takes an iron will. Perhaps testing its strength and boundaries alone makes the effort worthwhile. Regardless, your dedication was commendable ❤️

  17. I hadn’t heard of this before, so I find it interesting when you mention that your visits were lower – I did a “Shocktober” theme – a horror film every day of October, and you know what? My monthly stats were lower as well…I try to mix and match my posts across books, travel, movies, music and food…sometimes I think that “split personality” might hold down numbers, but as you noticed, sometimes a consistent theme can limit the breadth of interest…anyway, a great adventure and thanks for sharing all that you learned!

    Did you participate in the A-Z Blog Challenge in April and if so what are your thoughts. Jacqui Murray did so and discovered some highs and some slight disappointments. It is a commitment, not just to write a post but to keep on top of the comments on the blog and social media, but also to visit other participants and read and comment on their posts. Please head over and add your views.

Hi Jacqui – I think your theme was excellent – and as Sarah Zama of The Old Shelter writing about the Weimar Republic and Germany over the late 1800s to WW2 mentions how much she learnt: research being the key for her – as I did with your genres – opening up so many doors. I’m happy with having engaging comments and I’m another that doesn’t look at the stats … my aim is to engage readers and give myself something interesting and educative to write about.

    I’m certain you will benefit from the Challenge – so many will find you … and you’ve added to the types of things you can add in to your future posts … excellent ideas from you – cheers Hilary

  21. Well, obviously you made a big impact on me, from giving me my theme to being my 100th follower! I may not have been interested in every one of your genre’s but I did get a lot of new book ideas for my TBR list. Sometimes I don’t comment because I’m not a “writer” and so I think my opinion is not valid, but I do “like” because I came and read. I did take a glance at my stats and they were higher in April but it will be interesting to see if that continues. I think I will participate in the Road Trip starting later in the month too.

  22. Hi Jacqui, Enjoyed your sharing your thoughts on the A to Z experience. I was all about getting more visitors to my blog and studied the stats. I joined Google Analytics because the stats on blogger are haywire due to so many bots visiting. But then, it’s scary if one believes Google Analytics is true. LOL…Anyway, I experienced a 90% increase in traffic for the month of April, but that’s having 40 visitors a day versus the usual 20! And I’ve been blogging since 2011. sigh…I am working on writing my reflections post to be pubbed on Tuesday evening ET. First time for A to Z and probably last. In the time I spent writing blog posts and all that comes along with it, I could have written four chapters of my WIP in the month of April. But I truly enjoyed the experience, learned a lot and met talented, creative bloggers, like you.

  24. I enjoyed your posts this year as knowing one’s genre is essential for marketing, whether to a potential agent or to the public for self-published books. You validated how I’ve identified myself and why I like reading other genres, as well as why I don’t like some.

    Jacqui, you’re the blogger everyone should be though most aren’t. You read and respond to everyone who comments on your posts and you visit all other bloggers. But if your goal wasn’t met, maybe you should consider your forays into the challenge complete.

    If you decide not to do A to Z next year, you could pop in a genre post once a month just to continue the engagement with your own curiosity.

  26. Well summarised Jacqui. I agree with you on Comments being a good indicator of a reader’s level of engagement. Of course, I am sure there are many who could be interested readers but too shy to leave a footprint. I welcome the Likes but Comments is what I look fwd to.

  27. Dear Jacqui, these are just my thoughts on the subject. Take them or leave them as they seem relevant or not.

    Concerning building your blog, I don’t think the parameters for the A-Z challenge encourage the kind of growth you’re looking for in any quantity. People have just added a chunk of blogging time to their lives, and they don’t always have time to do it well. So they visit your post, give it a like, and move on.

    Honestly, this is why I disabled the like buttons on my blog. Many people who came to my blog hit the like button and never commented. Looking at the content of their blogs, it was difficult to think that they particularly liked mine. They were just liking my blog so I’d like theirs. We had nothing in common. We’d never even “spoken,” not even in the limited internet fashion.

    I ended up feeling like I’d spent my time on a worthless accomplishment. Likes have no impact at all. Comments affect your Google relevance, so they matter. But likes are nothing. This isn’t Facebook.

    I think the like button is useful (and also things like the A-Z challenge) when you’re just starting out and trying so hard not to be anonymous. They will get people visiting your blog. But once you’ve been blogging a while, I think it’s a case of diminishing returns.

    Of course, like everything else in writing, your mileage may vary. This is just what I found. 🙂

    • You have pegged so many of my feelings, Cathleen. I am often surprised by people who click like when I visit their blogs. I return the favor but don’t expect anything lasting. I keep my ‘like’ button because like Ankur mentioned, some people just don’t feel comfortable commenting. This is our way of giving a friendly nudge.

      You also make a really good point about it being better suited possibly for new bloggers. I have noticed in the blogs I visited lots were newish and this is a great way to find like-minded friends.

I have been blogging off and on for a few years, and initially didn’t spend any time reading other blogs (my blog was mostly written for friends and family I don’t see very often to visit from time to time). In the past year I have started visiting other blogs more often, and usually take the time to respond to something specific I have liked or learned as a result of reading a particular blog post. And I often press the ‘like” button while I am skimming comments… I had noticed that some blogs have “like” buttons and some don’t. Now I am learning why! Thank you for helping me understand a little more about blogging etiquette/best practices.

  28. First of all, congratulation on finishing the challange!
    Secongly, I was very interested in your rexperience because it seems to have been so different from that of most bloggers taking part in the challange. Most of us have a pick during the challange, I did as well.
    I wonder if that depends on you choosing a different theme form what you normally blog about. I did chose a theme that is in line with my usual blogging and I was quite satisfied with the result, especially considering quite a few people kept following, reading and commenting on my blog even if halfway through I had to stop commenting on other people’s blogs because I had to choose between doing that and completing my posts.
    People who don’t comment is a very common occurrance in blogging, I’d say, I’m not surprised about that.
    So, personally, I’d try the challenge again with a theme in harmony with your normal blogging routine and see how that goes 🙂

I keep up with several blogs on a normal day, so sometimes I will just like them to let them I am reading and enjoying but don’t comment to save time so I can get done and back to my own writing needs for the day. Maybe some of them were doing that too. That is a lot of blogs and comments. You did a great job. You are awesome.

    Congratulations on completing the A2Z challenge! Your writing genre theme taught me many things.

    Now, I didn’t pay any attention to my stats before or during the A2Z Challenge. I figured whatever it is, it is and just continued on my path. Whenever I visited anyone, even if it was a blogger who’s theme wasn’t in my wheelhouse, I always left a comment. I think it’s nice to let the author know that their effort is appreciated and that’s what commenting does.

  34. With the sheer number of blogs to get through every day of the challenge, I sometimes just “liked” a post by someone whose blog I’ve commented on before — and will again later in the challenge — if I have nothing of value to add to the conversation. I hear you about people just “liking” posts and never commenting.

    My daily visits were up — but then, my blog is smaller than yours (checking that follower count!). I did expect more, though, with guest posts: which either means that my daily visits were up because of the followers of guest bloggers stopping by, or because the challenge was working — but not both. Which does make me wonder if doing the A-Z was worth the effort…

    Maybe doing this only every second year is the way to go? I’ll have to think about that.

    Thanks for your thought-provoking reflections 🙂

    You state that the number of visitors visibly shrunk.
    Could it be the sheer number? There are so many out there that we
    hardly can properly take in and respond to every post if there are many,
    not if we also live a life outside the workroom.

And, there’s the idea that if I wasn’t doing AtoZ, like many in my blogging community don’t, I would NEVER reply to every post. Good grief I’d be buried. So I have to think how much that made a difference.
