Bloggiesta is here!


Bloggiesta is an online event for (book) bloggers in which we are encouraged to spend the next three days working on our blog in any way we see necessary. We Plan, Edit, Develop, Review and Organise – no wonder our mascot is called PEDRO! Olé! Bloggiesta is organised by It’s All About Books and There’s A Book.

The Bloggiesta fun begins here with my vague not-nearly-planned-enough to do list; and there’s a lot to be done!

1. Change how hyperlinks appear (I don’t like the current style).
2. Tidy up sidebar.
3. Catch up on book blog posts in Google Reader.[Done for now at least!]
4. Contact some publishers about getting their new releases catalogues.
5. Back up all blog content (thanks to Leeswammes for that idea).
6. Read and join in as much as possible with the Bloggiesta discussions on Twitter and other blogs. (If you’re on Twitter, you can use the hashtag #bloggiesta to keep in touch with what’s happening. I am @Nose_in_a_book.)

For me, that last is the real point of all this. I hope to learn a bunch and meet lots of new book bloggers. So, let’s get started!

UPDATE 1 (Sat): I have changed one of my goals to a more realistic one for this weekend because I am already flagging! And catching up with my fellow book bloggers is way more important than most other stuff anyway 🙂

UPDATE 2 (Sun): I will soon be going out for the rest of the evening so here ends Bloggiesta for me. I have achieved everything I set out to and gathered together a bunch of new ideas, not to mention meeting lots of ace new book bloggers (new to me) on Twitter. Thanks to everyone who took part!

    Good luck with all you hope to accomplish 🙂 Backing up the blog is such an awesome idea – I’ll have to add that to my list.

    Looks to me like you are getting things crossed off pretty good! But.. yeah, how about that Google Reader, huh? I haven’t touched mine yet, even though it’s on the list! Ugh! Have fun!

    Meeting other bloggers has been one of the best parts of this. Hooray for Bloggiesta pulling everyone together!

    Maria Absolutely!

    Suey I’m very nearly caught up. Now if everyone could just refrain from posting anything new for a day or two so that this achievement can last!

    Looks like you had a productive weekend. Like you, I wanted to find new-to-me blogs, which I’m happy to say I have.

    Great list! I’m afraid my Bloggiesta to-do list caused me falling horribly behind my Google reader. I see you’ve accomplished all your goals. Congratulations!

    Shonda, Pepca I think I am now dangerously close to doing more reading blogs about reading than reading books!
