Bloggiesta II Wrap Up

Founded by Maw Books Blog, Bloggiesta is a three day marathon of blog prep and catch-up work. This year it was run by It’s All About Books and There’s a Book. Thank you for another great year!

Here’s my (partially) completed list:

  • Update review and other templates
  • Create new feature/meme buttons – Not imperative, but it was a good thought
  • Update review and challenge pages – Still need to update my challenge page
  • Update Goodreads
  • Add name attribution jumps to review pages – Thank you Small Review!
  • Catch up on outstanding reviews
  • Do WordPress switch research – Did get some great links!
  • Practice/learn CSS/HTML coding – Does doing my name attribution jump pages count?
  • Participate in mini-challenges – Major fail here!
  • Update policies Didn’t really need doing after all
  • Prep event posts already scheduled – Still needs urgent attention
  • Update cheat sheet
  • Write guest posts – Still needs urgent attention

I ended up spending all day Saturday relaxing and catching up on my massive comic book pile. They needed some TLC with regard to organization and I feel like a weight has been lifted now that I gave that project some attention. It did mean, however, that I didn’t get to my Bloggiesta tasks until this afternoon. The limited time frame meant some major tasks did not get tackled, but a lot of the general clean-up stuff got taken care of and that’s good news.

I consider this a successful year, despite the fact that I didn’t get through some of the bigger items on the list. I’m just happy I have some reviews scheduled, my pages are looking more organized, and I feel a bit more caught up.

How did you do?

  1. You and I should work on some CSS together. I need to learn it, too. Not for my book blog though (I like it just the way it is) but for my business site.

  2. I've still got some work to do, but I'm happy with the progress I made this weekend. I DID make the jump to self-hosted WP. Lots of pros and cons to that, but glad I did it overall.

  3. I totally get your feeling about after organizing your comic books. I always feel better after things are organized. I am going to look into that post from Small Review about name attribution jumps. One of my tasks during Bloggiesta was to create a review archive page, which I did, and now I want to add that.
