My Bloggiesta to-do list isn’t looking as completed as a lot of the other book bloggers’ I’ve been visiting as part of this weekend-long blog fest. In fact, one of my crossed-off items I didn’t actually do, because I figured out it is part of the WordPress “theme” I am using, and there’s no way I’m changing that now. (It’s been fun to devote extra time to blogging, but guilt is starting to creep in.) I guess there’s always next year!
- Start some personal “Best of 2012″ lists
- Catch up on reviews (maybe by doing mini-reviews) – IN PROGRESS
Catch up and comment on blogs I follow through Google Reader– DONE
- Create a page of book lists and readalikes
Learn how to put a darn home page link in my WordPress custom header and remove my RSS feed option that doesn’t work!– NOT DONE & NEVER GOING TO GET DONE
On the plus side, I did meet at least two of the goals of Bloggiesta: 1.) to connect with other participants through blog hopping or Twitter and 2.) to make new blogging friends.
Here are a few of the blogs I’ve spent some time on during Bloggiesta:
A Bibliotaphe’s Closet – I don’t know where Zara gets her energy, but she has been bloggiesta-ing 24/7 this weekend from what I can tell. Her posts are amusing and informative.
Book Journey – Sheila’s posts are personal and funny. She inspires me with her daily posts. (And I see she was brave enough to mess around with her blog’s theme this weekend.) We don’t always like the same books, but always enjoy her opinions.
Care’s Online Book Club – This Bloggiesta update wouldn’t be complete without un saludo a Care (@BkClubCare) who is always so welcoming and friendly. She is also the only book blogger I’ve met in real life.
Everyday I Write the Book – Gayle’s reading recommendations are always worth paying attention to, and she hasn’t steered me wrong yet!
