Bloggiesta 2012 is hosted by It's All About Books and There's a Book and runs from Friday September 28th to Sunday the 30th. Visit these two fabulous blogs to get all the details! Basically it's a weekend-long event full of twitter parties, mini challenges, prizes, and lots of busy, busy, busy getting our to-do lists done with things we've been meaning to catch up on and update on our blogs.
I have tons of things I want to get done and a couple of the mini-challenges I definitely want to take part it. Here's my overly-hopeful, starry-eyed, naive first-timer's list:
• Write reviews for Unspoken, Awry, and Struck
• Update reviews on Goodreads and Amazon
• Add rating tag to my reviews so they are searchable by rating
• Schedule future meme posts
• Plan for a few "sweeties" posts, which I have been sorely lacking on lately!
• Organize TBR shelves and get a box of books ready for library donation
• Plan a few giveaways
• Mini-Challenge: Pocket App
So there's my goal list!! I'm hoping to accomplish most of it and learn alot along the way!
Wish me luck!
*Update- end of Saturday* Only two goals completed today! We ended up being out of the house almost all day today, which I wasn't planning on, so there it is. :( But I did complete what I thought was the most important task, and that was to back up my blog (which I had never done before--for shame!) I also read up on using Pinterest for reviews and I'll be putting that knowledge into action soon!
*Update Mid-Sunday* Finished a few more tasks! I'm seeing now how overly ambitious my list was, but I'm a newbie so now I know better for next time lol. I'm hoping to get a few more things done before tonight, but we'll see. I did the Grade Yourself challenge---lots to learn there! I'm pretty happy, I had an overall score of 81, with lots of great tips on how to bump that up in the future.
