Bloggiesta...My To-Do List

This weekend I will be participating in my fourth Bloggiesta!

This is a great weekend blogging marathon being hosted by Suey at It's All About Books and Danielle at There's a Book.
 
The premise of the bloggiesta, for those that haven’t participated before, is to spend the entire weekend working, updating, improving your blog. From minor things such as writing up posts, to reaching out for guests posts and reorganizing all of your tags and categories.




So what do I plan to do this weekend?  Well… here’s my list:
  • Write up all outstanding reviews that I need to post
  • Set up posts for upcoming reviews
  • Clean up tags, category lists
  • Update reading log and link reviews to log
  • Update challenge lists and link reviews
  • Update Review Archive list
  • Add an About Me page
  • Clean up my Google Reader subscriptions
  • Clean up emails
  • Update Goodreads tbr list
  • Update blog roll
  • Look into possible new blog design
  • Look into drop-down menus
  • Participate in at least 2 mini-challenges
  • Visit at least 10 blogs participating in Bloggiesta each day

It’ll be a fun and hopefully very productive weekend. I'm hoping to log at least 20 hours during this event - hopefully I will get even more in though!!!

What about you? Are you participating in Bloggiesta?

  1. An About Me page is nice to have - at least, I love to see other people's About Me page. Make it a nice one! :-)

    Have a good time with Bloggiesta.

    1. I've had that on my to-do list for the last few bloggiestas...and I am determined to get it done this time around.

  4. I am going by everyone's blogs and stealing their lists (seriously and I am not ashamed about it LOL). I have a list for this weekend but everyone has such great ideas for stuff I can do after this weekend :)

    Good luck with design :)

    1. I do that, too! You just can't help it...but I am going to focus on getting things done from my list and then if time allows, do the other stuff.

      Not sure what I want to do with the design - it just seems a few other bloggers have this one (being that it was a free design) and so I have to decide if I want mine to be completely unique or not.

  5. I hope you get everything done on your list :) Thanks for visiting my blog too!

  6. You have an ambitious list! I see that you are considering updating your blog design. It's my first visit here - and the first thing I noticed was the clean and beautiful design! Can't wait to see what you're inspired to do next.

    1. Thank you. I don't really want to change it, but since it was a free template, I have come across at least 2 other bloggers using it. Not sure what I want to do, but figure this is the time to look around.

  7. Great list! I already see that there are some items I should add. Have fun!

  8. Great list! I have an About page, but it desperately needs updating so that's on my list, too.

    Have a great Bloggiesta!

    1. I've been saying I'm going to create one for a while now - just need to bite the bullet and do it already!

  9. Wow! That's quite an ambitious list you have. Your blog is already very organized, and fun to visit.

    1. Thank you. Yeah...it's a big list, but I'm hoping to get to it all. It doesn't help, though, that I keep finding new things to add. I now have a separate list of things to do either when I finish everything or for another time!

  10. I like your blog design as it is. Good luck with your goals-I dread thinking about my Google reader, but it needs to be done.

    1. Thanks...I am just bummed that other blogs have it - but that's what happens when you use a free template. I'm not sure if I will change it - I really do love it, but I'm going to see what else is out there.

      Yes, that Google Reader is overwhelming...I really need to figure out a way to organize it.

  20. I change my blog design, at least in some way with every Bloggiesta. In fact, it's one of the first things I do because I feel like it gives me a fresh start. Is that weird? Hope you're having a productive weekend!
