Bloggiesta Update #1

Day 1 of Bloggiesta, being hosted by Suey at It's All About Books and Danielle at There's a Book, has come to an end and now we are on to day 2.

I got quite a bit done yesterday despite having to run out to the mall on an emergency shopping trip for a cocktail dress for my awards ceremony next week - the dress I had been planning on wearing didn't fit and I needed a new one. Anyway, crisis adverted - I got a great new dress which I love - thank you White House Black Market!

Here's what I accomplished so far:
  • Write up all outstanding reviews that I need to post - Started this
    • Completed and posted 1 review
    • Set up posts for 5 reviews
  • Set up posts for upcoming reviews
  • Clean up tags, category lists
  • Update reading log and link reviews to log - COMPLETED
  • Update challenge lists and link reviews - COMPLETED
  • Update Review Archive list
  • Add an About Me page - COMPLETED 
    • Please check out my About Me page - I would appreciate any and all feedback
  • 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

Current running time: 6.5 hrs.

As always, I welcome any feedback and suggestions. 



  1. Wow! You've already made a HUGE dent in your goals. I got a few things accomplished last evening but have more to work on today.

    Good luck and thanks for stopping by :)


    1. Thanks...I'm hoping that this time around I actually get to finish everything I had on my list!

  2. That is an impressive list. Good luck with it! You did really well to go to 15 blogs and comment. Thank you for stopping by on my blog.

    1. Thank you. I'm hoping to get tons done today as well!

  3. Great progress! I checked out your About Me page; very lovely. Your wedding picture is very sweet! It must be great having reading in common with your hubby. Best of luck with the rest of your list. :)

    1. Thank you. Yes, it is great that we both love to read - it means he's really supportive of not only my reading/spending habits (of books) but also of my blog!

  4. Nice to see that you checked things off your list. Also I am impressed by the progress bars on your reading challenges!

    1. Thanks. I found those progress bars on someone else's blog and loved them. If you click on one of the bars, it takes you to the website where you can create your own. It's pretty easy to do.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love interacting with other book lovers and appreciate any thoughts or feedback! If you read a book after seeing my review, please let me know. Come back and leave me a link to your review so I can read it. Thank you!!!
