Bloggiesta: Checking In

I've been working away on both of my blogs for Bloggiesta. Here are some of my accomplishments over the past two days:

Completed 5 hours on Friday:
  • Made lists of things to work on during Bloggiesta
  • Updated profile and published on both blogs
  • Wrote and published Review Policy for My Book Retreat
  • Cleaned up labels on both blogs
  • Reviewed stats and visitor paths
  • Posted What My Child Is Reading for this week
  • Researched other memes/challenges to join
  • Signed up for new challenge & posted about it
  • Signed up for Book Blogs and browsed forums
  • Changed template for Just Playin' Around blog
  • Started cleaning up sidebar on Just Playin' Around
  • Created a calendar printable and published on Just Playin' Around
Completed 3 1/2 hours on Saturday:
  • Created bulleted list of why I blog (for each blog) to help me focus better
  • Updated blogrolls
  • Reviewed and updated blog settings
  • Updated challenge posts on My Book Retreat
  • Finished cleaning up sidebars on both blogs
  • Joined mini-challenge: Comment Challenge at Mother Reader
  • Wrote 10 comments on blogs new to me to complete the challenge (this took a while since I ended up getting carried away with reading blogs!)
  • Joined mini-challenge: Footers at Bookalicious and added footer to My Book Retreat

I knew I wouldn't be able to devote a lot of time to Bloggiesta, but I'm glad I joined because I've been able to get a lot done, even though I'm not spending nearly as much time as most participants. I hope everyone else who is working on their blogs this weekend is getting a lot accomplished!

  1. Great job on all the accomplishments! I don't have much time to spend on bloggiesta either but every hour means that much more is done than probably would have been done w/o it.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
