Everyone knows I’m a sucker for setting and accomplishing goals, so when I heard about Bloggiesta…I knew I wouldn’t be able to stay away.
So, what exactly is Bloggiesta? It’s basically a weekend-long blog challenge hosted by Maw Books Blog to improve your blog and cross items off your to-do list. You can put as much or as little time into the challenge as you want. Throughout the weekend, there are mini-challenges with tips and ideas to make your blog even better.
Below are some of my specific goals for this weekend:
Edit review policy
Edit services page
Edit book reviews page
Send out interview questions
-Schedule more author interviews/guest blogs
-Figure out if I’m removing my blog roll and if so, figure out something better to put on that page
-Prepare a few discussion posts
Catch up on Google Reader
Comment on blogs
-Research and figure out when I’m signing up for BEA/BBC
Learn how to copyright my blog (Silly me, my blog was already copyrighted!)
Find new blogs to read through bloggiesta!

Bloggiesta is such a fantastic idea! I accomplished a lot on my to-do list as well as some things I never even thought of (like creating a Google spreadsheet for my upcoming reviews/author interviews). I didn’t accomplish everything on my list, but bloggiesta is a year-long activity for me! I usually spend Sunday afternoons working on upcoming posts/improving my blog, so I’m looking forward to making my blog even better!
I had a great time hopping around to new blogs and look forward to the next event!
