Bloggiesta: The Finish Line

I got much accomplished with Bloggiesta and I want to thank Natasha from Maw Book Blog and all the other bloggers who helped her organize this event. This is what I got accomplished:

  • Clean up linkbar
  • Edit my About Us page, review policy, disclosure policy
  • Organize labels
  • 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. (I'm half-way there)
  • Update challenge lists and link posts with hosts
  • Prepare blog posts for future reviews
  • Remove old posts, such as old giveaways and winner announcements
I also participated in these mini-challenges:
  • Blogging goals
  • Give a lending hand - I helped Linda of Seven Hills with her question on headers
  • Email best practices and solutions
  • 10 Things bloggers should not do
I spent a total of 12 hours between Friday and Sat but then Sunday morning I woke up with a bad case of carpel tunnel syndrome. I had to stay off the computer. I also have another blog, NouveauWriter, of which I did more planning of future things to change since I did not have time to actually make all the  changes. That's the great thing about Bloggiesta. You can continue working on all the things you still want to change and have learned about. Thanks to everyone for your support!

  1. Dear Laura, well done! You got a lot done.
    Thank you so much for helping me with headers. I now have a banner below my main header that illustrates 'me' and I'm very pleased with the result.
    Thank you Maw Books for hosting this Bloggiesta. I will be posting my wrap up tomorrow and thanking them directly, too.
    All the best, Laura.

  2. @Linda
    I am heading over to your blog to check out your banner!

  3. Laura - thanks for your kind comment. I've just finished my wrap up posted on my weekend post,
    put your blog address link in the notes (I really appreciate you)
    and did the survey for Maw Books.
    Baci! A presto!


Thank you for commenting! I appreciate your feedback.
