Final Bloggiesta Update

Well, my second experience with Bloggiesta is done and it was great! You can click on that link to see what everyone else did as well! I got a very detailed list of to-do items to make my blogs better, and although I didn't get through all of them, I'm still set to continue updating and improving my blogs into the future.

Here's the complete list of what I've accomplished. It's not very different than my last update since I didn't work much on my blogs on Sunday. I ended up spending a total of 11.5 hours on Bloggiesta this time. I've love to hear what you think of my new templates and pages. Speaking of pages, does anyone know if updates to pages appear in your readers? I'm kind of hoping no, but don't know for sure.

I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Mundie Moms are hosting the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop in honor of Independence Day in the United States, and I've decided to participate.

It can be any genre as long as the author is from the United States. You choose the book (up to $15), and I'll order it and have it mailed to you from Book Depository . The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn. Happy 4th of July!
