Mini @Bloggiesta Finish Line June 13-14

Mini Bloggiesta badge

The Summer Mini Bloggiesta is over. The next Bloggiesta is a big one in the fall, September 17-20, when book bloggers unite to work on their blogs, learn from each other, and talk about bloggy stuff. I had fun and got a few things on my list accomplished!

Update blogrollDONE
Sadly said good-bye to The Bibliotaphe Closet, Devourer of Books, The Oddiophile, and You’ve Gotta Read This (moved to Facebook), which are no longer active blogs.
Added I’m Lost in Books, which I didn’t realize wasn’t already there, and Thoughts from an Evil Overlord, which was a Mini Bloggiesta discovery.
Updated link to She Is Too Fond of Books, which has moved from WordPress to Blogger, and fixed up some links that didn’t open in a new window.
I enjoyed revisiting all of the blogs on my blogroll; here are a few of the interesting posts I caught up on:

The Boston Bibliophile: San Francisco Book Shopping

Chrisbookarama: Female Character Deal Breakers

Citizen Reader: Have you bought any fun reference books lately?

I’m Lost in Books: Mini Bloggiesta Goals (Becca wins the Best Bloggiesta To-Do List Award!)

Literate Housewife: June Is Audiobook Month Giveaway

Stacked: How Do You Organize Your Books? (Take the poll!)

2. Organize list of books I’ve committed to review DONE

3. Get a week’s worth of posts scheduled

4. Back up the blog DONE

5. Do plug-in updates DONE

6. Join the Twitter chat on Sunday (3 p.m. EST) DONE
Talked about favicons, copyright, image resizing, Pinterest, and was reminded by Becca of I’m Lost in Books mention of updating her “Books Read” list that I haven’t remembered to update my Reviews by Title and Reviews by Author pages in a while. Something for the next Bloggiesta?

7. Visit other Bloggiesta participants’ blogs DONE

Mini @Bloggiesta To-Do List June 13-14

Mini Bloggiesta badgeMini Bloggiesta is this weekend, and I have both days free. That hasn’t happened for the last few Bloggiestas, so it seems to be fated that I work on the blog this weekend – along with catching up on house and yard work (in case my husband is reading this); visiting with my parents (in case my mother is reading this), and reading!

The theme for the Mini Bloggiesta to-do lists is simplicity, so I’m keeping it short:
