The end of another #bloggiesta


Oh I do not want this bloggiesta to end! I am so close to finishing my whole list!

The things I have left to do are things which I will end up having to do anyway this week so it shouldn’t be to bad! I purposefully left them for next because I wouldn’t be able to put them off for to long anyway.

I have got lots done:

  • Cross-posted my reviews to Amazon
  • Contacted a couple of people about the possibility of making me a new header
  • Updated my masterlists
  • Cleared out my google reader- I was sad to see how many bloggers are no longer blogging
  • Sorted out my blogroll to make sure all the links are of active blogs/sites and that all the bloggers I follow are listed.
  • Written and scheduled the next 2 Top 10 Tuesday posts
  • Updated my review policy
  • Updated me Children’s Hour Page
  • Added links to other reviews on reviews as far back as February
  • Sorted out my twitter list, unfollowing some people, creating groups.
  • Visited lots of other blogs
  • Taken part in Smash Attack Read’s Grade Yourself Mini-Challenge and been very proud of my score of 89
  • Updated my Goodreads reviews
  • Taken part in 2 twitter parties.
  • Replied to outstanding comments
  • Responded to author/publicist e-mails, and cleared out my inbox
  • Backed-up blog
  • Written a custom message for e-mail subscribers

The next bloggiesta is provisionally scheduled for March 29th-31st.

Thank you to the 1stdaughter and Suey for hosting, for everyone who has visited my blog and offered support this weekend. And to everyone who has participated. Roll on March!

Bloggiesta Day 3


I feel a like I got less done yesterday than I did on Friday- but I think that is mainly because I did more things which took a long time.

So yesterday I:

  • Took part in a twitter party
  • Added my blog to blognation
  • Sorted the people I follow on twitter into groups. This took much longer than I had anticipated, partly because the list kept randomly jumping up, and partly because I had imaged that I might be able to add people to a group in bulk.
  • Sorted out my google reader. I was shocked at the number of bloggers who hadn’t posted for a year or more ūüė¶ some of whom were bloggers whose blogs I had really enjoyed. I was quite happy to find I didn’t have to delete many blogs because I no longer read them, however.
  • Sorted out blogroll
  • Backed-up my blog
  • Visited and commented on some other blogs
  • Updated my review lists
  • Added review of Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares to netgally

How did your second day of bloggiesta go?

Bloggiesta Day 2


It’s day 2 of bloggiesta. I’m quite happy with the amount I got done last night, but I’ve done most of the easy things now!

So far I have:

  • Contacted a couple of people in regards to making a banner for my blog.
  • Updated my Children’s Hour page so all my children’s hour posts are listed, and to add a bit of explanation
  • Whittled down my twitter list- basically deleting authors whose books I haven’t read/don’t plan on reading. This should mean my twitter feed is made up of more of what I’m interested in. I have yet to create groups.
  • Visited and commented on a few other blogs
  • Responded to outstanding comments- although I have more to reply on which were posted while I was sleeping.
  • Updated my Goodreads reviews
  • Updated my Amazon reviews
  • Read and responded to author/publicist e-mails
  • Taken part in 1 mini-challenge. I did Smack Attack’s Grade Yourself Challenge. My grade came out as 89 which I’m really chuffed with. The only things it said was that I don’t have enough of my posts tweeted or shared on facebook, and that I could add more tags to my photos. The first I’m not sure how to go about improving. With the second I’m unsure whether I can add tags without breaking my amazon affiliate links

How did your first day of bloggiesta go?
