Mini Bloggiesta Goals and Updates

From “In short, Bloggiesta is a blogging marathon revolving around ticking off those items on your to-do list and improving your blog while in the good company of other awesome bloggers doing the same thing.” Bloggiesta is hosted by Suey at It’s All About Books and Danielle from There’s A Book.

This is my very first Bloggiesta!  It’s a “Mini” Bloggiesta, and since this is my first time, I’m not really sure what the difference is between this one and the others, but I’m excited to be participating!

I also don’t really know the protocol when it comes to these posts since this is my first time participating, so I’m just going to wing it.

I’ll be updating this post throughout the event.

My Goals

  • Catch up on commenting
  • Write at least one review
  • Put at least 5 old reviews on Goodreads

I’m not sure exactly how much time I’ll be able to put in this weekend, but if I get caught up on responding to comments, I’ll be a happy camper!  If I get all those accomplished, I might add a few other goals.

Wrap Up

I ended up not doing much on Saturday, except for writing a review.  But then I spent a LOT of time on Sunday responding to tons of comments that had been left on my blog.  So I got my major goal done and I’m super happy about it!  Now if I can just stay caught up on responding to comments, I’ll be even happier!

I had lots of fun participating in this event, and I’ll definitely be joining in again! Thanks to everyone who stopped by and cheered me on, and I enjoyed talking with everyone during the Twitter chat!

Did you participate in this Mini Bloggiesta?  Let me know and I’ll stop by your blog!

    This sounds like a good idea, I have a lot of things to do and I need to catch up.
    This is the first time I hear about this, so I wouldn't know about it either.

    I like your short and sweet list! Glad that you could join in! I hope you've discovered that there aren't really any strict rules or protocol…it's a friendly bunch! The "full-blown" Bloggiesta is pretty much the same. Just MORE. Hope to see you then, too!

    Completing your major goal is a great first step. You'll get to completing all of them soon.
    You should join Know me Better, it is fun and we get to know each other a little more.

    I've never participated in a Bloggiesta yet, but they sound like so much fun, and I've learned from reading other participant's posts.
