Bloggiesta - The Starting Line

It's Bloggiesta time. Olé.

This is my official starting post. I'm super excited to be participating, but I'm not off to a great start. I was out of town for 3 days this week (mostly unplanned), arriving home yesterday to a house that needs cleaning and laundry that needs doing and an empty fridge. I'm going to participate, but I may take more breaks and not get everything done.

Anyway, here's what I have planned:
• write reviews
• clean up old tags (there's one in particular that been driving me nuts)
• clean up some broken links
• add tags to old reviews
• add old review to newish review pages
• rewrite/add-to my "about me" page
• add book cover photos to older reviews (low priority)
• clean up my templates
• create a few new templates
• write some "rainy day" posts
• create a Facebook page for my blog
• complete some mini-challenges (to be determined)
• create a list of outstanding items that didn't get done/items others are doing that I wished I'd done

That's a good list to start with. I'm most likely going to add to it once I get into it and see what others are doing.

Thanks to Natasha at Maw Books for once again hosting this event. You're the best!

Let's get this party started!


  1. Great list. I particularly like the last one. I'm looking at other folks lists and creating a separate To Do for after Bloggiesta.

  2. I know what you mean Marie about being out of town. I was out of town for three weeks before Bloggiesta and was doubting my ability to even pull hosting Bloggiesta. I haven't even gone grocery shopping yet! Good luck on your list this weeekend. Give me a shout out on Twitter if you need help with anything.

  3. great goals, thanks for stopping by my blog look forward to your updates.

  4. Good luck to you meeting your goals! I'm not participating this year, but I'm cheering you on!

  5. Good luck to you with your list! I hope you manage to accomplish everything you set out to do!

  6. I love writing "rainy day" posts, lots of freedom with those. Good luck with your Bloggiesta tasks.


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
