It's Bloggiesta Time!


Happy Bloggiesta!

Can you believe that it's Bloggiesta time already? Time flies, doesn't it? Bloggiesta is where we all get together to work on our blogs, have fun with mini-challenges, and share helpful hints and tips to make our blogs shine! It's hosted this year by Suey at It's All About Books!  and Danielle at There's A Book

So to get the party started, here's what I want to accomplish this weekend:

  1. Update my reviews on Amazon, BN.com, and Goodreads
  2. Clean up my sidebars
  3. Change my blog design
  4. Get my non-book blog up and running
  5. Participate in mini-challenges
  6. Catch up on my reviews

I had several other things that I wanted to do for my blog this weekend, but plans changed and I found out I need to go out of town next week for business, so won't be able to devote as much time to Bloggiesta as originally planned.

Are you participating this year? If so, any other goals I should consider? 

Looking forward to a great weekend of Bloggiesta fun!

Ole!

    1. I know! I just updated my goals as I totally forgot I want to catch up on writing reviews! Seems every time I visit another blog, I need to add to my list! Will try to resist, as I don't have a lot of time this weekend....maybe I could do a Bloggiesta MONTH! ;)

  2. Thanks for stopping by earlier. Yes, I was quite surprised that I've accomplished so much, but a few of those were tasks I added after my initial start. I kept finding things I could fix. ;O) Oooh, I hope you get to the new blog design. Can't wait to see what you come up with! Good luck with all your goals!

    1. Thanks Michelle! I found myself starting to add goals to my list too, then had to rein myself in as I won't have much time this weekend. I've been working on the new design, so just need to get up the nerve to put it up! Am afraid that I'll lose something along the way or it will crash or something horrible. Never tried such a big change, so am a little nervous! :o

  3. I didn't even think about reviews until I saw everyone else mention them. Reading you list made me think of all the stuff I forgot on mine. LOL!

    Good Luck on your Bloggiesta list!

    1. I've seen so many awesome goals listed by other Bloggiesta participants that I keep wanting to add to mine, but need to work on the ones I already have first. Am impressed with how many goals you've already accomplished! I need to get busy! :)

  4. Wow! Those are some ambitious goals! I hope you achieve everything. I always post reviews and then forget to do them anywhere else but on my blog!

    1. I used to be good with cross-posting, then started scheduling them in advance and totally forgot to post them anywhere else. Oops!

    1. I've been working on a new design for hours, but the preview still doesn't look right so I'm hesitant to publish it right now. I'll keep tweaking until it's beaten into submission! *L*

  9. Great list! I too tried to catch up on my reviews... and did all of one. Ah well. That's the beauty of a 'to do' list - you can extend your time limit! *grin* Good luck with everything.
