The Reflections post is a tradition at the April A to Z Blogging Challenge, so while I’m busy with edits and revisions on my forthcoming new novel, I’m taking a quick break to ‘reflect.’
I’ve done this April Challenge for eight years now, and I’ll keep doing it as long as I’m able. By this point, I worry less about how many people read my posts and comment on them and more about coming up with a good topic.
I thought showcasing Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan was a good idea. Because these A to Z posts typically (for me) highlight music, food, books, or travel, a Dylan theme fit right in. I always check ahead of time to make sure I can cover the difficult letters, and it seemed that, for the most part, I did. But to make it a little more interesting, I found clips of other people covering Dylan songs. And there were lots of them – at least for the more popular tunes.
I did have a harder time this year following other bloggers – I wanted to, and I’ve subscribed to many, many blogs, but I found myself with less time to read the posts. So, my apologies for not liking and commenting as often as I should have. Maybe next year I’ll do better.
How about you? Did you enjoy the Dylan theme? I have a few ideas for next year already, but you’re always welcome to make suggestions!
I’ll leave you with a fabulous rendition of “Like a Rolling Stone,” performed on the David Letterman Show with a group of all-star backup singers.
