MopDog Monday: A to Z Reflections

Welcome to the first weekly MopDog Monday post!

Whew! This was the MopDog's second year of participating in the A to Z Challenge, and the first year I had a theme (other than "Hungarians are weird"). It was tons of fun to write, and even more fun to read the comments as the world reacted to Hungarian history... The number of my followers tripled (yeah, I know!), and I got a lot of inspiration for future posts.
Because of that, I decided to announce a regular weekly feature:
MOPDOG MONDAYS!

MopDog Mondays will be regular posts on assorted topics of Hungarian weirdness. In no particular order, here are some posts I am working on right now:

10 Things Game of Thrones and Hungarian history have in common

How to say "I'm drunk" in Hungarian 10 different ways

Hungarians Give Animals Strange Names

"No, we don't have vampires, please select one of the following options..."

... as well as many others.

If you feel like you can handle Hungary, make sure you follow the MopDog, or follow me on Twitter!

Also, check out my other blog, the Multicolored Diary. I did a theme of Epics this year, and I also posted my "official" reflections there with shout outs to favorite blogs, and the Reflections Linky.

Congratulations to all on finishing A to Z, and surviving the Hungarian Middle Ages! :)

  11. Well, I'm glad I found your blog, or you found mine. I've only ever spent one day in Budapest on a quick train ride from Vienna. I definitely want to go back and now I have all sorts of Hungarian history in my pocket to take with me.

  13. I never managed to get round to visiting your blog through this Challenge (mainly because I was trying to work forwards from where my position was on the list and you were near to the front) but I saw lots of your comments on other people's blogs :) I will certainly be dropping in on the A to Z Road Trip however so see you soon :) Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace
