It's time to start the Bloggiesta! Some of you may be asking what is Bloggiesta? In short, it’s a blogging marathon hosted by Maw Books Blog
. It runs from January 21-23. It's an opportunity to cross those nagging items off of your to-do list and improve your blog while in the good company of other awesome bloggers doing the same thing. Our mascot Pedro stands for: Plan. Edit. Develop. Review. Organize.
I have designated January as my uncluttering and organizing month--my house, my bookshelf and my blogs. That's why I love the idea of Bloggiesta, although this is my first time participating. Here is what I am working on:
Clean up linkbar
Edit my About Us page, review policy, disclosure policy
Create page of book reviews by title (fully updated!)
Create page of book reviews by author (not yet fully updated)
- Improve blog template by cleaning up sidebars, removing old pics, etc.
- Update challenge lists and link posts with hosts
Prepare blog posts for future reviews
Remove old posts, such as old giveaways and winner announcements
Since I am also owner of another blog, NouveauWriter
, which is participating in Bloggiesta as well, I do not want to overwhelm myself. Once I get started though, I know I will have the incentive to do more even after the Bloggiesta is finished. My overall goal is to have a clean, uncluttered look with easy navigation for my readers to find the info they came looking for.
Happy Bloggiesta to all participants!
Good luck with your Bloggiesta!ReplyDelete

I'm still a long way behind with setting up my blog.
You have offered to help with advice on templates. I want a simple look, but would like a header with a photo that's wider rather than square. How do you change the setting to get a thin
header with a photo. Thank you, in anticipation.
Wow, it looks like you have got a lot done already! Hope you are enjoying your weekend.ReplyDelete
Looks like you've been having a productive Bloggiesta! Best of luck with the rest of the weekend.ReplyDelete
