Bloggiesta: My To-Do List

This weekend is the Winter Mini Bloggiesta, an annual event for us bloggers to focus on our blogs, catch up on reviews and learn about new blog enhancements. I try to participate in most of the Bloggiesta events throughout the year since it gives me a chance to catch up on things I've been wanting to do with My Book Retreat. This weekend I have some personal commitments but hope to devote a few hours to the tasks on my list.

I have a long to-do list and don't expect to complete all of these things, but I did want to include them all here so I can pick and choose what I feel like working on this weekend. I'll be checking things off this list as I work on them throughout the weekend.
  • Write reviews ~ I think I have about 10 outstanding now...
  • Update My Reviews page
  • Update old book reviews to remove outdated giveaway information
  • 2015 Challenges wrap-up
  • 2016 Challenges sign-up
  • Add attributions page or spot on sidebar
  • Update sidebar ~ new social icons, popular posts, Goodreads widget, sidebar headlines
  • Sign up for Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon
  • Update Review Policy
  • Comment on other Bloggiesta posts
  • Create a schedule for reading and commenting on blogs regularly
Are you participating in Bloggiesta this weekend? If so, what are you working on?

Bloggiesta Wrap-Up

I got more than expected done even though I only worked on things on Sunday evening and Monday evening. I didn't manage to do any of the mini challenges, and I didn't get out to visit other blogs, which I was really hoping to do. That's something I need to work on this year ~ visiting and commenting on other blogs. What did you accomplish during this Bloggiesta?


  1. That's a great list. I need to work on mine as well and have a bunch of things to do. I still need to sign up for 2016 challenges and wrap up 2015 challenges too! I won't even count how many reviews I need to wrote but I do need to get done 2* reviews out of the way that I owed the authors.

  2. Wonderful list! Enjoy the party, while doing all these fabulous things.

  3. I need to figure out what challenges I am doing in 2016. Thank you for reminding me :) Happy Bloggiesta!

  4. I need to wrap up my 2015 challenge list too! I never thought of that! Happy Bloggiesta! :D

  5. It looks like you were very productive during the time you had! I wasn't especially social this Bloggiesta either, because of the limited time I had to work on my blog.

    1. It's hard to split the time between doing the work you want to do and being social!

  6. You did accomplish a lot, though, and doesn't that feel good?

    1. It does! I was surprised at how much I managed to get done in a short amount of time. Of course, I still have all of those reviews to write...


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