Well, That Was Fun

Thank you all for being on board with the Back to Blogging Non-challenge Challenge! I loved meeting new bloggers, exploring these prompts with you, seeing new friendships happen in the comments sections, and rediscovering why we do this thing together. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for not making me feel totally stupid about sharing this idea. ;)

To round out the last five weeks, I wanted to share some of my favorite responses to the prompts. Of course, I loved reading every single one! And the linkup will stay visible here if you ever want to go back and peruse the linked posts.

I love how Samantha at Samantha Rose Says described what makes her feel peaceful.

I have nearly every single song on Michael of Frankly My Dear's list of songs that define her life on my own playlists—too good.

And when she talked about feminism, my nasty woman hands couldn't keep from clapping.

I so relate to Donna from Grace & Galoshes talking about what she hopes to remember.

My favorite thing about Steph of Life According to Steph's post about life anthems is her preamble ;)

Erin, aka TexErin in Sydneyland, was the hands-down (and I believe uncontested?) winner of the "hold my beer" post contest.

Nadine from Life By Nadine Lynn really nailed something we can all relate to when she talked about what she wishes she knew before.

When Frikkin Duckie talked about the thing she can't stop thinking about, she gave me something I haven't stopped thinking about either—I loved it so much.

Jenn at Optimization Actually wrote two awesome posts, in my opinion, about charitable donations and who she admires.

Kristen from See You In a Porridge is all of us talking about peaceful things.

Allison talked about what she wants people to receive from her, and I think she nails it.

That Girl Myra wants to remember something this time next year, and I hope she does. I hope I do too.

I'm with Leslie from A Side of Chocolate in wishing I had known this sooner.

I totally cracked up and found a kindred spirit in Mattie, the Northwest Native, when she blogged about something she's been hesitating on.

Knowing Dani from Faster Than Forever in real life and what kind of person she is, I loved her post on what she hopes to give people.

But this is all just a sampling. There are tons of other awesome posts people linked up, and I'm so glad! If you find yourself still in need of an escape from reality, or a lunchtime read, I hope you'll pay a visit to some of the bloggers who joined in who maybe you've never met before.

Thanks again, blogland.


  1. Great job, girl! You had a lot of great participation here - I read most of them but checking on some I missed. Thanks for organizing this non-challenge! :)

  2. SO many good posts! This was the best non-challenge challenge I've ever participated in. ;)

  3. This was such a fun link up - thank you for hosting it! And I'm definitely about to check all these out, too. Thanks for including me :)

  4. Thanks for the shout out and thanks for hosting such a great link up! I found so many kindered spirit bloggers through these prompts. It was so refreshing to see blogs filled with real life stuff that was more than favourite beauty products. I've found myself going back to the link up several times over the month to click through to new blogs and discover some really great bloggers and thought processes. If there was an award for best link up ever my vote would go to you! :)

  5. Thanks for sharing my post and thanks for this link up! It really made me think on a few things and I read so many great responses to the prompts. I need to go back and make sure I read them all!

  6. so many fabulous posts and a great challenge/non challenge! i still have a couple in my drafts lol i'll get to them eventually :)

  7. This was a great nonchallenge challenge! I'm looking forward to reading through some of the other posts that I haven't seen yet.

  8. I loved this challenge.

    I am holding on to the what people receive from me prompt, I wanted to do that one but ran out of time. I'll do it and tag it for future.

  9. Thanks for hosting!! I didn't join in as much as I'd hoped, but I read a lot of the others who linked up and found some fun new bloggers too!

  10. Great challenge! I have one more I didn't manage to post within the time limit, but I'll probably share it anyway at some point next week or the week after. I think one of my favorite prompts to read was when people shared the posts they've been holding onto and why they haven't posted them. So much insight into people's personalities!

  11. I loved this-- and even though I never made it to linking up, I loved reading other posts and finding new bloggers. I hope you put another non-challenge together in the futur e:)

  12. Such a wonderfully creative non-challenge challenge, and the posts that I've read have all been great too. I am saving this to work my way through the posts, because there have truly been some special ones.
