I'm also kind of sad. Hops are about the only time I have a jump in comments, so I feel like now the challenge is over, my blog will go back to being ignored. Lately, I've been grappling with feeling left out and alone when it comes to my writing, but that's a post for another day. I did gain blog subscriptions, but no idea how many. I should have looked at the numbers before the start. Ah, hindsight.
In terms of how the challenge went, I didn't have many bumps. A few blogs had commenting systems that wouldn't let me comment unless I had an account. People, if you want comments, don't force someone to register. It seemed a lot of the blogs after me on the list weren't participating or it seemed I just found all the non-participants. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to report them or let the hosts and their minions deal with it. I didn't see many signatures in my comments, but Weebly doesn't have html for comments so it really didn't matter. Also, everyone put their website/blog into the website field when commenting so I was easily able to visit back.
I don't really have any complaints and I'd call the challenge for me this year a giant success. I'm sad it's over, but also glad. It's always a relief to have the bloggingsphere go back to normal after something like that. Now I've got to figure out what to talk about.
Before I go, I'd like to give a shoutout to a few blogs that I had me coming back daily and begging for more.
