Bloggiesta Wrap Up

Think that this was a very productive weekend, and I'm so glad I decided to participate in the Bloggiesta. Thanks to Natasha and all of the challenge hosts for putting this together! They all worked very hard, and it's really appreciated!

Finished a few more challenges: the blog directory challenge at Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile, the cheat sheet challenge at There's A Book, the anchor text challenge at Galleysmith, the rainy day challenge at Beth Fish Reads, the clean up your feedreader challenge at The Book Lady's Blog, and the copyright challenge at Bookalicious.

Never made it to the Blogging Tips group on Ning, but can do that when I have more time. Also haven't made up my mind about a separate disclosure policy, if I really want to make a button, and if I should change my layout. All in all it was a very, very productive Bloggiesta! I'm exhausted, but pleased.
