Bloggiesta Wrap-up


Bloggiesta Starting Line

I think that’s going to be it for Bloggiesta this time around. I feel like I got a lot done…lot’s have a look back at my list…

The List (in no specific order)

  • Review:- The Shock of the Fall, Dexter by Design, Dexter is Delicious, Slaughter-House Five, The Color War, The Humans, The Silkworm, Clash of Kings, The Forgotten Daughter, Larger Than Life.
  • Update review masterlists author and title, and Children’s Hour masterlist
  • Update reviews on goodreads and amazon
  • Re-write intros for Children’s Hour and Sunday Surfing
  • Update review policy
  • Update blog roll and feedly subscriptions
  • Take part in a/some mini challenges –Anchor Links for masterlists
  • Update twitter profile
  • Unfollow spammy twitter people
  • Sort out twitter lists
  • Do something about the pages links
  • Musings post about concept of literary (?)
  • Sort out e-mails
  • Sort new stuff for facebook page
  • Write Sunday Surfing
  • Schedule ‘what’s been popular’ twitter and facebook updates

Didn’t quite have the material for that musings post, but that’s ok, maybe another time.

I’m going to do the intro for Children’s Hour when I write my next one, as I did with Sunday Surfing.

Still a few reviews to write but I think I made a decent dent in the pile, and I have one scheduled for this week so shouldn’t have to worry about getting another out until next week.

I’m most happy with my new review masterlists, I’ve wanted to put anchor links in for years, but I didn’t know how.

Participated in the twitter chats too which were really good fun, and I met some great other bloggers. 🙂 Going to have a look around and see how everyone else has been doing now.

Bloggiesta Start Line


It’s Thursday. It’s the first day of Bloggiesta. I’m not long back from work and have a cup of tea, all ready to start.

You can see my to-do list here (which I may well add to as I go along, and which I will strike as I go along).

I’m starting off with my review of The Shock of the Fall, which I actually had already written, but wordpress ate it (I was really happy with it as well, and wordpress almost never eats things). Hopefully that should be posted tomorrow (with this and Children’s Hour posted today I don’t think I need a standard review too).

Bloggiesta To-Do List


It’s Bloggiesta next week folks. There is so much I need to get done (I think I even commented somewhere last week that I needed a Bloggiesta to make me do stuff) so it’s about time I participated.

Bloggiesta is a blogging event about doing those things which you’ve been meaning to do on your blog but have been procrastinating over or not found time for. It’s a time where you say ‘right, I’m getting this done’. There are always lots of other bloggers on hand to help out, especially on twitter and there are mini challenges so you can find out how to do new things on your blog (I joined twitter thanks to one of these in the past).

Sign-up to take part here.
