Fall 2015 Bloggiesta!

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 Thursday through Sunday, September 17-20, is the Fall 2015 Bloggiesta! I’m excited to be participating again, because I have a lot of blog housekeeping to do! (I actually put off doing some of these things so I could do them during Bloggiesta!)

I plan on updating this post as I go.

My Goals

  • Update About Me page
  • Add TBR Book Club, Graphic Novel Month tags to side bar
  • Update review policy page (accept requests, say I will only respond to requests which I am accepting)
  • Add all reviews to reading challenges, review archive, GR, URL to FB pics
  • [I DECIDED NOT TO DO THIS ONE] Add TBR book club to features page, move Kiddo’s Corner Reviews up higher on features page (order: TBR, KCR, BR, Typecasting)
  • Write 1 review
  • Write 2 other posts

Bonus Goals
If I get all the above goals met before the end of the event, I’ll attempt to finish these goals as well:

  • Write the rest of my posts for the month [I wrote all but 1!]
  • Follow all recent followers on Bloglovin’
  • RESPOND TO COMMENTS [I didn’t really respond to recent comments on the blog, but I did comment on several other Bloggiesta participants’ blogs!]
  • Clean up tags (apocalyptic, etc)
  • Back up blog
  • Request books from Edelweiss

    Wow, great to-do list! I love that you set bonus goals – I may set some for myself if I get enough done this weekend (we shall see!)

    You got a lot done! Great job. I need to update my about page, but always forget about it.

    You did wonderfully! I recently updated my own Review Policy page myself and you just reminded me that I should really update the tags on my reviews. Maybe I'll put that down for next time. Great job!
