Bloggiesta Plans


It's Bloggiesta time! What is Bloggiesta? It's a four-day event during which we bloggers focus on cleaning up our blogs and getting to the projects we've put off for too long. I have a lot of work to do!!

Here's my to-do list. The main thing is getting caught up on book reviews! Most of this will be done on the weekend, rather than today and tomorrow. I will update my progress here throughout the event.
  1. Write reviews for:
    1. The Missing Place
    2. Brain on Fire
    3. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
    4. Codename Zero
    5. The Land of Stories
  2. Add reviews to Reviews tab
  3. Add reviews to Amazon
  4. Create logo/lead space image
  5. Choose old book reviews to highlight during Banned Books Week
  6. Make plans for upcoming Blog Action Day - choose book(s) to highlight
  7. Start list of ideas for upcoming Blogiversary
FINAL UPDATE
I didn't get everything done, but I did get a lot accomplished, so that feels good. I started thinking about #6 at least, but I think I'll be using social media to get more ideas on what books to share that day.

    1. It's a day when blogs all around the world write on one topic. This year it's inequality.

    1. I still have a couple more to write, as you can see. But I feel better having gotten the others done at least!

      Thanks for the suggestion of To Kill a Mockingbird. I am considering that and The Grapes of Wrath. Both are good classics about inequality. I haven't read a classic lately.

  4. Congratulations on what looks like a very fruitful Bloggiesta! Well done! Just like you and many others, I also have a lot of reviews to catch up on... Maybe we should have a Review-Dash-Day or something :P
