It’s Bloggiesta Time!
I know I’ve been bad about blogging lately—real life is getting in the way, I’m afraid! (Clearly, I’ve fallen off the Post A Week 2012 bandwagon.) But in recognition of my poor behavior, I’ve decided to participate in Bloggiesta this weekend!
What is Bloggiesta, you ask? Well, to borrow the words of organizer Suey at It’s All About Books:
Do you have things you’d like to do on your blog that you haven’t managed to get to in forever? Do you want to do those things with lots of other bloggers from all over? Talk things over with them? Bounce ideas off them? Learn from them? Teach them too? If so, you will not want to miss the latest installment of Bloggiesta! A blogathon created nearly three years ago by Natasha of Maw Books so we could do those very things listed above!
This sounded like the perfect opportunity for me to give my blog a little TLC. The challenge starts today and ends Sunday night, and as part of the rules, I have to post about my goals before hand. After looking at my blog and reviewing the inspiring list of mini-challenges, here’s what I’ve come up with:
Write 5 new blog posts of any size or shape. Learn how to use MisterLinky. Add theme pages to organize my posts about travel, reading, etc. Comment on 20 blogs. Review/update my WordPress sidebar. Grade my blog. Add a copyright notice. Back up my blog.
And off we go!
