Bloggiesta: Getting Started!


It's time to start Bloggiesta! I'm hoping to get a lot done on my blog this weekend as I participate in Bloggiesta, which is hosted by Suey of It's All Bout Books and Danielle of There's A Book. I haven't done this event in a long time! Here's a list of some of the things I hope to work on:
  • Write at least 3 reviews ~ I have seven books that I've read but not reviewed yet. Not too bad compared to some of the book bloggers I know, but that's a lot for me. I'd like to get through at least three reviews this week: Bossypants, The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom, and The 13th Target.
  • Add reviews to my Reviews tab ~ I am embarrassed to admit that I don't think I've added links to any of my 2012 reviews on my Reviews tab. I may have added a few at the beginning of the year, but it's been a long time!
  • Update the blog background ~ It's not spring anymore!!
  • Review and update my Review Policy ~ I haven't looked at this in a while; I wonder what it says!
  • Develop a plan for more frequent author interviews ~ I'm thinking about doing weekly interviews, just trying to decide whether to only interview authors I've read, or to start doing interviews with a wider variety of authors (any advice on this is welcome!!).
  • Set up a challenge or giveaway for Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Reading Challenge participants ~ I haven't had anything special for participants in my challenge since the first quarter!
I think that's it at the moment. I'm hoping to participate in some mini challenges, but honestly, I just want to get some stuff done on my blog! And with my husband in bed with pneumonia and my two kids at home all weekend, I may be limited in the time I can spend. I'm hoping their friends are available to play tomorrow so mommy can have some quiet time on the computer. :-)

  1. I like the new background!

    I created a review archive last Bloggiesta and haven't added to it since, so that's one of my goals for today.

    Good luck with your list and hope you have a productive weekend!

  2. Good luck on your goals! Hope your hubby gets to feeling better.

    For more interviews, maybe do a page or sign-up form specifically for them and push it a bit. :) Surely you'll get some bites.

    1. That's what I'm thinking about the interviews. I have only ever interviewed authors I have read, but I'm thinking it would be fun to interview others as well.

  3. I hope you got some work done. It looks like a very useful list. But with your husband ill it may be difficult to get something done. Hope he's better soon!
