Bloggiesta 2nd Edition!

This weekend I'm going to neglect my husband and housework to partake in the awesome event that is Bloggiesta!

Click on the picture of Pedro to learn more!

I took part in the First Bloggiesta and really learned a ton about blogging. Natasha over at Maw Books Blog is the host and I'm also hosting a mini-challenge that involves a project Kate from The Neverending Shelf and I just recently started.

So, my goals for this bloggiesta are as follows:

  • Spend at least 20 hours on my blog
  • Schedule the 10-15 reviews I'm behind on
  • Schedule Blogger Spotlights
  • Find more bloggers to spotlight
  • Schedule Waiting on Wednesday posts (been a slacker on these)
  • Fit in an IMM Vlog post
  • Write up some rainy day type posts (for slow review weeks)
  • Tidy up my inboxes
  • Start working on contests (prep-work - my one has over 200 ppl entered with multiple points)
  • Wrap up my last two contest winner books and head over to the P.O. tomorrow to mail them out
  • Request another set of graphic novels from the library for the CYBILS challenge
  • Join more challenges and connect all Challenge posts on the sidebar with progress
  • Update Challenge posts
  • Complete mini-challenges
  • Schedule upcoming book reviews with pictures and template
  • Reorganize Google Reader
  • Organize a blogger folder in some semblance of order
  • Redo my review policy
  • Update my About section
  • Review blogger survey and find MORE changes to implement
  • Make a new gravatar
  • And much much more...
Wow.. *looks above* I am absolutely insane.. oh well! Starting some hot cocoa to get me going. I suggest listening to some music - maybe create a station on Pandora that will keep you going.

Remain focused. That's the key.

See ya all at the finish line!


  1. wow, that does look like a lot. Hope you get it all accomplished!

  2. Sounds like you have your work cut out for you. I volunteer if you need a blogger to feature.

  3. Wow!! Looks like a lot on your plate!! I spent last weekend re-organizing my blog layout (before hearing of Bloggiesta), so I am glad to be totally done with it for now. Have fun!!

  4. Good luck! I'm sure you can get all that done... now, myself, on the other hand. Teach me how to stay focused! haha =]

    Have a great weekend!

  5. You're not crazy! Just organized! Good luck with the challenge.

  6. Woo, good luck! I'm wayyy too busy to participate (semester ending?!), but it sounds like tons of fun! :D

  7. I learned a lot the first time too. I am so excited to be a part of this and really will get down tot he business of it tomorrow. :)

  8. I'm pretty sure burnt is a correct spelling. Burned is, too. It's kinda like oriented and orientated. Both are acceptable in literature.

  9. You're motivated, and that's impressive! I am inspired by your organization. =) Thanks for sharing!

  10. I am not going to be original this time, so all I am going to say that your blog rocks, sad that I don't have suck a writing skills


Leave some love!
