My Bloggiesta Start Line!

Bloggiesta hosted my Natasha of Maw Books is one of my favorite blogging event because I always learn so much and I hope my time this weekend will be no different. If you have any questions about what the heck Bloggiesta is just click on the link up there and find out everything you need to know.

I have lots of activities that I need to get done around the blog and I hope to also participate in plenty of challenges. I'll be at work today but then this evening I'll get going and I have plenty of time set aside tomorrow and some on Sunday so I'll be popping around and saying hi to as many people participating as I can as well as posting my progress.

Here's what I hope to get accomplished by Sunday evening:
  • Add the share buttons to the bottom of my blog posts
  • Write reviews.
  • Write backup posts for a rainy day.
  • Create template posts for your future reads (ie: title, images, linking, tags, etc,) so you can open up, write review and post without being bogged down with technicalities
  • Clean up your tags, archives, books reviewed list, etc.
  • Clean up sidebars
  • Edit your about me page/review policy.
  • Clean up and update your challenge lists.  Link up your posts with hosts.
  • Visit the Blogging Tips group on the Book Blogs Ning and find ways to improve your blog.
  • Back up your blog.
What do you have planned? I always forget something!


  1. I'm not participating in Bloggiesta, but I really do need to update a few things on my blog.

  2. Have fun with Bloggiesta! I've been working on "tabs/labels" this morning as part of Bloggiesta, and feeling like I'm accomplishing long forgotten tasks!:-)

  3. Have fun and work hard! :)

    Oh I really should look at my tags, sometimes bloggers choses the wrong tag

  4. I hope you get a lot accomplished!

  5. Welcome to the fiesta! I hope you get much of your list accomplished. If you need help with anything don't hesitate to give me a shout out on Twitter.

  6. I still need to write my starting line post and figure out my goals for the weekend. But yours look great. Best of luck.

  7. Hope you enjoy Bloggiesta - I'm finding the levels of participation in the blogosphere astounding and a little overwhelming! Anyway good luck, and I would say that's quite a list to be starting with!

  8. GO GO GO GO go go go!!
    Happy Bloggiesta!!

  9. Great list! I think the idea of post templates is key. I can't figure out how to do that so I've been copy-pasting the html code from old posts to remain consistent. It's working pretty well for me. Have a great weekend with Bloggiesta

  10. Sounds like you've got a lot on your plate! I hope you got to accomplish a lot of your goals!
    I haven't done as much as I would have liked, but I'm hoping to get a bunch more accomplished between tonight and tomorrow!

  11. Have fun and hope you're getting lots done.
