Bloggiesta IV - Starting Line/Update #1

This weekend I will be participating in my second Bloggiesta!

This is a great weekend blogging marathon set up by Natasha at Maw Books, and this weekend will be the fourth installment. 

The premise of the bloggiesta, for those that haven’t participated before, is to spend the entire weekend working, updating, improving your blog. From minor things such as writing up posts, to reaching out for guests posts and reorganizing all of your tags and categories.

So what do I plan to do this weekend?  Well… here’s my list:
  • Write up a few reviews that I need to post/set up posts for upcoming reviews
  • Prepare a few posts for rainy days 
  • Set up templates for weekly memes
  • Clean-up tags, category lists
  • Update reading log and link reviews to log
  • Clean up and update my challenge lists 
  • Add a page listing all reading challenges
  • Add an about me page, review policy, disclosure policy, privacy policy
  • Clean up my Google Reader subscriptions
  • Update Goodreads books read list
  • Add book reviews to Goodreads
  • Analyze and re-evaluate my blog
  • Back up my blog
  • Look into new commenting system
  • Participate in at least 2 mini-challenges

    It’ll be a fun and hopefully very productive weekend. I'm hoping to log at least 25 hours during this event - hopefully I will get even more in though!!!

    As always, I welcome any feedback and suggestions.


    1. You are going to be busy! Good luck!

    2. Wow, that is an ambitious list! Good luck!

    3. This is a great list. Good luck. I'm hoping to join into the fun, but I haven't done much preparation and this will be my fist time so I'm a little worried. But there are so many great examples out there - I'm hoping I'll be able to catch on quick.

    4. Great list! Don't hesitate to let me know if you need help with anything.

    5. Looks like you have your work cut out for you. Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
