The 30 Day Song Challenge The End - A Recap

And that's it - 30 days with 30 songs and 30 short paragraphs with thoughts on the songs. I spent almost 2 weeks working on these posts and they mark quite a big turning point in the blog - firstly, it's the biggest commitment I have made to making posts that far in advance ever, secondly it was a really good excersise in creation of posts and thoughtful remarks, and thirdly it gave me confidence to maybe try a few of the other big ideas that I have not had come out in the wash in the past that I might have started but never got round to completing.

As an aside, I have created a Spotify playlist of most of the songs with some not found on the service which is a shame.  Also, for posterity, here's a list with all the songs.  I think.
