Bloggiesta Time Again!
From bloggiesta.com: “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.
Starting tomorrow (Friday, 03/22) I’ll be participating in my second Bloggiesta. I loved the first one I participated in, and it just so happens that I have lots of blog housekeeping to do, so I’m very excited to be participating again!
So I’m going to go ahead and post my goals, and I’ll be updating this post throughout the event, which goes from Friday to Sunday.
Catch up on commenting(I ALMOST got this accomplished. I still have my favorite blogs to comment-bomb because I’ve gotten really behind on their blogs and some of them have commented on my blog recently, so theirs were the only comments that I didn’t actually respond to yet.)
- Write at least one review
- Put at least 5 old reviews on Goodreads
I’m going for the exact same goals I had during my first Bloggiesta. My major goal is to catch up on responding to all the recent comments that have been left on my blog. And then, I swear it, this time I’m going to STAY caught up after that! It will happen! It will!
Anyway, if I’m able to get all of those first 3 goals accomplished, I have some other smaller goals that I will add to the list. But to be honest, I’ll be totally stoked if I just get caught up on responding to comments.
UPDATE: Added extra goals on Saturday, 03/23
Add my blog to Bloglovin‘ Update G+ profile and get in book blogging group
- Make a Facebook page
Think about moving to WordPress(I thought about it–not sure if I’m going to move anytime soon, though) Unfollow some old inactive blogs Get a new feed reader
Here’s to a hopefully very productive Bloggiesta!
I didn’t really get much done today except I added my blog to Bloglovin’ and I participated in the Bloggiesta twitter chat. I got lots of great advice and ideas during the chat, and found some great new bloggers to follow! Tomorrow I hope to spend the whole day catching up on recent comments on my blog.
I got a bit sidetracked today, because I found out that I’m definitely going to BEA this year!!! I’m so excited! I’ve been spending valuable Bloggiesta time looking up everything about NYC and BEA that the only thing I’ve done for Bloggiesta today was the chat this morning. But tomorrow I will spend as much time as I possibly can trying to get caught up on comments!!
Once again, I started off thinking I was going to get a lot done, but I didn’t start doing anything until about 2 p.m., and then I joined the chat, and then spent the rest of my evening trying to accomplish my big goal of responding to all my recent comments. I finally got that finished! Yay!
Well, overall I didn’t get as much done as I wanted, but I did get caught up with my comments! And I got a few other things done too, which was nice! I didn’t end up doing any of the mini challenges, but I think I’m going to try to do a lot of them soon, because a lot of them seem like things I need to do! And I loved chatting with everyone on Twitter. Everyone gave such great advice and had great ideas for goals during the event.
Thanks again to the organizers–Bloggiesta is such a cool event and I can’t wait for the next one!
