Finish line! As you can see from the list below, I didn't accomplish all I set out to.  I'm in Michigan right now.  I spent most of the day Saturday packing for the trip and yesterday travelling so I didn't get as much accomplished as I wanted.  The one thing I wish I could have gotten to was backing up my blogs.  I'm still going to be doing that really soon.  My thanks to The Book Vixen for her informative post on backing up blogs!

I hope everyone had a fun Bloggiesta! 

You can see what I did get done by the cross offs on the list below.

First off, let me just mention that I'm not promising any major accomplishments for Bloggiesta.  I still have a lot of reading to do and I'm getting ready to go out of town on Sunday so I may not complete everything on my list, but we shall see....

I had originally planned to work on my home library blog, A Huge Library in a Small Apartment, but I just do not have the time to devote to such a large undertaking so that project will have to be tackled at a later date.  Here are the tasks I would like to accomplish:

  • Add Dewey's Read-a-Thon buttons to sidebar of this blog and Castle Macabre
  • Edit and add to slide show header at Castle Macabre
  • Add my Amazon bazaar to Castle Macabre
  • Linked all book review label to a page--still not an ideal alphabetical list of reviews but at least the page pulls up all posts tagged 'book review' (this was an unplanned task)  =O)  Also, on Castle Macabre
  • Directed authors to revised review policy using a smaller section of the blog on here and at Castle Macabre (another unplanned task!)
  • Complete my lists for A Non-Fiction Adventure and Once Upon a Time VI challenges and get them posted here, at A Non-Fiction Adventure and Challenges of The True Book Addict (my challenge blog) Partially finished, still have to complete list at Non-Fiction Adventure and post it to the challenge blog and both challenges to main blog. Whew!
  • Update reading challenges at my challenge blog (see above)
  • Write review(s) for, at least, House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
  • Post a few reviews to Goodreads and Amazon and to my history blog, A Brave Heart
  • Update calendar here on the blog
  • Update 2012 Reads list and Review books list
  • Back up all of my blogs (I have a bunch of blogs so I may only get to this one and Castle Macabre, but I will at least try to back them up and get to the others later)

So there you have it! We will see how this goes.  I've made this a sticky post and I will update by crossing off items on the list.  Wish me luck!

Feliz Bloggiesta! Ole'!



Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Great goals! I have quite some updating to do, too. Good luck and have fun!

  2. Hi! It looks like you're already doing well on your Bloggiest goals. This is my first time participating and it's already been very useful!

    Good luck with your list!
    I hope you're going somewhere fun!

    Good luck with the traveling :o)

  3. It takes a truly organized person to make a task list. It takes a person with discipline to keep up with it. It takes a masochist to make it public.

  4. Great list! I'm impressed that you've already crossed several things off as well! I just keep adding to mine as I get great ideas from everyone else, so need to stop adding and start working on getting something done. Good luck!

  5. Wow, you're moving right along! I had no idea you had several other blogs. It's fun, isn't it?

    I've been enjoying this event, too, and I'm mainly working on my Curl up and Read site, but I did go over to Rainy Days and Mondays and started adding pages. I had never tried to create additional pages on the Blogger sites before.

    Have fun!

  6. I see you are almost done! Congratulations :D I should Back up all of my blogs too, thanks for the idea!

  7. Great list! And you've made great progress :)

  8. I don't know how you manage to keep track of every thing you want to do on so many blogs! I've got three and I am forever forgetting to update one of them. Looks like you got a good amount of work done and have a nice list to work from as time permits!

  9. You accomplished a lot! Thanks for reminding me to back up my blog. I must do it ASAP - I wouldn't want all the work go to waste. :)

  10. You certainly seemed to have gotten a lot done for having other stuff going on. I really need to look into backing up my blog - I would be devastated if I lost everything!
