Bloggiesta Begins!

In addition to the fun events of BlogFest, this weekend is also Bloggiesta! Here’s the host post describing the event, which includes a bunch of mini-challenges to get bloggers to interact while improving their blogs. Here’s my to-do list for the challenge:

 

  • complete at least two mini-challenges in both the Organization and Time Management category, and in the Blogging Success and Improvement category
  • update review indexes
  • think about new header for blog and profile pic for twitter
  • update blog roll
  • think about future blog events for the holidays, book and movie releases, the election, etc.
  • update About page
  • work on pinterest, goodreads and twitter involvement
  • participate in sunday twitter party

I think that’s plenty to keep me busy! I don’t know that I’ll get everything done, but it’s nice to have somewhere to start :)
