Blog Everyday In May Challenge Recap

I can't believe we're already four days into June, and the Blog Every Day In May Challenge has come and gone. The challenge lived up to its name, and was well, challenging. But I also really enjoyed it. I tried to put a personal spin on each of the writing prompts to make it my own. And I think I was successful at that. By far the best part about this challenge was meeting new bloggers.

I decided to borrow an idea from my new blogging friend, Erika and compile a list with all of the posts for the challenge together in one so it is easy to find and refer back to down the road. Plus, I love stalking my favorite bloggers as well as new blogs that I discover so this will help any of you who like to do the same :)

A big thank you to Jenni at Story of my Life for organizing and hosting everyone for the May Challenge. It was a lot of effort and I know we all appreciated your effort in having the post up and ready for us to link to everyday. I was surprised how many people participated, and impressed by how many of us completed all 31 days of the challenge.

Congrats to all of you who participated, whether it was for one day or 31 days. It was fun to be involved! I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all of you and thank you to all who found From Foothills to Fog through the challenge and stopped by.
