Bloggiesta Time!

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
  • 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.
  • 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!

  2. I know I already left you a comment on your other blog but wanted to give you some love here as well!

  3. I hope you get a lot accomplished.
    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.

  4. Wow, it looks like you have got a lot done already! Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

  5. Looks like you've been having a productive Bloggiesta! Best of luck with the rest of the weekend.
