Whew! We made it! Now you know that the best bug out location is found in central Mexico. Let me know when you are ready to make the move.
Posting every day was an exhausting experience. I have to be honest here. I worked on these posts for about 6 months prior to the challenge. Yep. Sure enough. Even after having a draft ready to post for each of the 26-day challenge, it was a lot of work. Some of the links I included no longer existed. There were some typographical errors to fix. Sometimes new information had come to light since I had written the draft (like that volcano crater forming just minutes from my home). And then sometimes I just wasn’t happy with the draft and redid the post completely. Facebook decided it would rather share my disclaimer image than any of the photos and graphics in my posts, so that was annoying. Then I had some additional obligations and blog posts I had to SQUEEEEZE in during the month. Well, I made it!
I expect reading daily posts was a bit overwhelming for you as well. Did you miss any? I’ll post links at the end for you.
Part of the A to Z Blogging ChallengeA to Z Blogging Challenge was to read and comment on other participants’ blogs. This year there was a Bingo board to help with the motivation. Although I worked diligently at finding the Bingo squares (and sharing them on Twitter) I wasn’t able to get a Bingo. Darnit! I hate to lose! I did read a number of good blog posts though in the process, so I guess it wasn’t a total waste.
Right now, I’m not sure that I will participate next year in the challenge. I haven’t come up with a fabulous and relevant topic yet. If you have any ideas, let me know, please! I have determined to do a 31-day challenge sponsored by Writers Bra, but don’t worry, I plan on spacing the posts out over the course of several months.
Here are the links to all 26 posts in the series A to Z Reasons Why La Yacata is the Place to be WTSHTF (when the sh*t hits the fan).

I post most days anyway so that wasn’t so bad for me, but if you’re used to posting less regularly, it must be hard work to suddenly have to blog 6 days a week!

I ended up even blogging on Sundays to meet all my blogging obligations! Whew!
