Bloggiesta, Ole! It’s coming Sept 28th thru the 30th

Posted September 8, 2012 in Event / 7 Comments

Bloggiesta is a weekend devoted to working on your blog.  You know your blog needs it.  Why not join a whole bunch of bloggers and make it fun!  You never know, you might get a lot accomplished!!


This very awesome event was originally started four years ago by Natasha of Maw Books and has been passed into the capable hosting hands of Danielle @ There’s a Book and Suey @ It’s All About Books

I saw a bunch of bloggers participating in this last spring and I was so bummed I didn’t know about this event.  Well, now that I’ve made the move from Blogger to WordPress, I’ve already got the list of tasks/goals started.  And with this event, I’ll gain valuable knowledge through the mini-challenges and through stalking all the participating blogs. 

How will my brain grow, you ask?  Well, the mini-challenges are set up to discuss specific topics such as:

  • Scheduling Posts and Organization
  • Increasing Blog Traffic
  • Using a Variety of Applications in Conjunction with your Blogging. (ie. Evernote, Microsoft Access, etc.)
  • WordPress vs. Blogger
  • Discussion Posts…How-to
  • And many many more!
To read more and sign up for this awesome event, go over to There’s a Book sign up post.
So, what’s on my to-do list? Well, here’s my list in no particular order; subject to change if I happen to do any of this early (HAHAHAHAHA!):
  • Write About Me page
  • Write Contest policy page
  • Write Review scale page
  • Make a policies tab and put policies and review scale underneath
  • Fave Authors page using Catalog template for series & websites
  • Make Upcoming releases widget
  • Fix or make a new signature and embed (can I?) into posts
  • Add additional buttons to blogroll
  • Add Amazon, B&N & Indie affiliate buttons
  • Build a new calendar (in Google) for blog events?
  • Finish adult reviews page and add into “reviews” drop down menu with YA reviews
  • Add drop down menu for tags?
  • Call GoDaddy to fix email
  • Update Header / Logo for cards &/or bookmarks (I need an avatar!!!!!)
  • SEO – turn on again?
  • Make meme button for Lisa at PNR & UF Reviews and Goodies
  • Look for a new template on Themeforest
