Spring Bloggiesta goals

March 16, 2015 Challenges 16

It’s almost time for Bloggiesta!

What’s Bloggiesta, you ask? Well, here’s how the organizers describe it:

Bloggiesta is a blogging marathon (sometimes over a weekend, sometimes four days and this time one week!) where we as bloggers gather together to help each other work on all sorts of blogging tasks, stuff that we often put off and avoid. Or stuff that we’re scared of trying. Or stuff that we haven’t had time for.

This time around, it runs from March 23 to March 29, which should give me plenty of time to get at least a few goals done. So here’s what I want to accomplish:

  1. Catch up on answering comments. I fell behind during an index project crunch, and I’m trying to catch up, but it’s going slowly.  ETA – Working on it!
  2. Write up at least 3 of my backlog of reviews.
  3. Write reviews for any books I finish during the week.
  4. Post at least 4 older reviews to Goodreads & Amazon.
  5. Catch up on posting challenge reviews to the challenge host’s page: Cruisin Thru the Cozies, Fairytales, Historical Romance, TBR Pile, Witches & Witchcraft, Take Control
  6. Move forward with my blog header and design. That doesn’t mean finishing everything, but I’d like to take some more steps in that direction. Some ideas: adjust standard font size. Clean up sidebar. Create a blogroll (maybe.) ETA: Upload new header and change color scheme to match.
  7. Extra goals (if time allows): Create a reviews archive page. Update the Author Birthdays page.


Wish me luck!

ETA (3/26/15): I’ve come down with a horrible cold which is making it really hard to concentrate on much of anything.

      Good luck to you with yours, as well! I’ll pop over and see what they are… I may end up adding a few to mine. 🙂

      Looking at other people’s goals, it seems pretty unambitious, but I’ve got a lot of other stuff to do this week, and I know that some of this will take longer than I think. Thanks for the luck – I will need it! 🙂

    I like the font in banner, and I really like your social media buttons. Revamping my blog visually is a long time, piece by piece goal. One of my goals is to meet as many new bloggers as possible, so I am spending today visiting as many blogs on the sign up as possible. Happy Bloggiesta!

      [chuckles] And I just got rid of the old blog header and the social media buttons! I like my new design, though. It’s been a while in the planning, and I’m still fine-tuning the color scheme. I’ll be making tweaks for a while. Happy Bloggiesta, and thanks for stopping by!

          Thank you! If you’ve hired Creative Whim, I know you’ll be happy. I didn’t have the money to have Ashley design my site at the time, but I had her transfer me to self-hosted and that went very smoothly. Plus I love how easy it was to customize the Tweak Me theme once I finally got around to it! And UBB is great!
