It's Bloggiesta Time! Ole!


I'm once again participating in Bloggiesta, hosted by Natasha at Maw Books Blog. I took part in Bloggiesta back in January for the first time, and it was great! I got so much done! So what do I want to accomplish this time? Well, my first activity is to put together a list of things I want to accomplish! I just haven't taken the time to really even think about it, so that's my first step. A few more general things though...

1. I'm going to make lists for improvements to my two blogs: My Book Retreat and Just Playin' Around. I'll be keeping track of all my progress here, though.

2. I'm going to put together a list of article ideas for the Triangle Mommies blog. I'm supposed to submit at least two blog posts every month for that site, but I've been having a tough time coming up with ideas lately. So I figure I'll create a long list to pull from over the next several months.

3. I need to clean up my blog email and would like to create a list of publicists and other contacts, along with the books I've reviewed for them. I haven't been keeping track.

4. I'm going to reorganize my list of books to read. I created some great spreadsheets during Bloggiesta in January, but got away from them after just a couple months. I need to come up with a new organization idea that I'll stick with.

Other than that, I'll be spending some time today listing out all the things I want to accomplish this weekend, and picking some mini-challenges to participate in as well. I'm sure my list will include things like changing images and possibly looking at new templates for my blogs, cleaning up my blogrolls, etc. Check back later to see what I've been working on.

And if you've come by from the Book Blogger Hop, leave a comment and let me know!

  11. I think organizing your TBR list is a great idea. It is one I have seen quite a few times today. I am thinking of adding that to my list if I have time this weekend:
    Good Luck this weekend!
