Bloggiesta 2nd Edition

January 8th, 2010 by Debbie's World of Books


I’ve have fallen so far behind on the blogging community since the holidays started that I almost missed this.  So glad I saw it mentioned on Twitter.  Natasha at Maw Books is hosting the 2nd edition of Bloggiesta!

Some of you may be asking what is Bloggiesta?  In short, it’s a blogging marathon.  A opportunity to cross those nagging items off of your to-do list and improve your blog while in the good company of other awesome bloggers doing the same thing.  Break out the nachos, enchiladas, drinks, mariachi music and whack a pinata or two!

I am super excited because there is so much I need to do on my blog.  Here is my list and I’m sure I will be adding to it:

  • Write 6 reviews.
  • Write latest summary post for my Revisit Your Childhood Favorites Challenge to showcase the latest reviews.
  • I’ve been vaguely tossing around the idea of a weekly meme around clearing off my TBR shelves. So I want to think that through and hopefully put together the first post.
  • I’ve been neglecting my Who Would You Pick showdown between some of my favorite male book characters so I need to get back to it.
  • I don’t know if I will get to this but I want to go back and either tag or create categories for my 5 star, 4 star, 3 star, etc. books so it’s easier to view all the books I gave a particular rating. A friend was telling me she wanted to just see my 4-5 star reviews.
  • Clean up my side bar
    • Remove 2009 challenges
    • Add my 2010 challenges link
    • Clean up and update my blogroll
  • Update or get rid of my upcoming books and events page
  • Write and schedule at least 2 future Book Blogger Discoveries posts
  • Write up at least 2 Waiting on Wednesday posts
  • I still have a couple author spot light posts I wanted to write that I didn’t get through over the holidays
  • I also recently started My TV Addiction blog and I am behind on several tv episode write ups I wanted to do

    We’ve got a few of the same things planned. I’m working on my widgets and blogroll right now, which I need to add you to it, lol. It’d been so long since I added a new blog to my reader subscription that it took about 10 minutes to find the button for it the other day… lol.

    Good luck with your goals :-)

    Kool-Aid Mom-I can’t recall the last time I updated my blogroll. I think it might have been like a year ago!

    Good luck with your goals! I just removed my 2009 challenges from my sidebar and linked up my 2010 challenges a few days ago. Was happy it didn’t take as long as I expected, so hope it runs as smoothly for you!
