Monday Musings and Mini Bloggiesta Wrap-Up

July 22, 2013 Monday Musings 24

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

This week I’m musing about my experience with mini bloggiesta, a shorter version of the twice yearly bloggiesta. Both events are all about improving your blog while interacting with other awesome bloggers who are doing the same with theirs. Read more »


Mini Bloggiesta Begins!

July 20, 2013 Blogger Events 13


Today is the first day of a mini Bloggiesta! This a shorter version of the twice yearly bloggiesta and is all about sprucing up your blog while interacting with other awesome bloggers. I’ve got lots of things I want to get done this weekend and can’t wait to get started 🙂 Here’s my current to-do list:

  • add all book reviews to goodreads and librarything
  • get reviews from Doing Dewey posted to Cannonball Read V  (done through end of July)
  • add completed reviews to challenge link-ups
  • comment on reviews for book-to-movie challenge
  • participate in commenting and networking bloggeista mini-challenge
  • get one monday musing and three review posts scheduled
  • revisit old posts and make sure I’m hosting my own pics and that they are categorized correctly

Probably overly ambitious, but at least it gives me a lot of things to choose from! Are you participating in Bloggeista? And is this the first time you have?

Hello all and welcome to the 24 hour read-a-thon! To check out the status updates, mini-challenges and other participants, check out our host’s website here. Personally, I’m getting a bit of a late start today after sleeping off a particularly exhausting work week and I’ll probably be doing some work on and off today as well as reading. But I’m very excited about the upcoming mini-challenges so I’ll be doing as many of those as possible and updating this post as I go. Read more »
