Bloggiesta – June 2010

Bloggiesta is a semi-annual even created and hosted by Natasha at Maw Books Blog for the maintenance and improvement of our books blogs. The work that goes into maintaining a nice blog is pretty big, especially as new practices come into play which can affect hundreds of pages of your blog, not to mention the busy schedule that always seems to be affecting mine.  I have an awful lot to catch up on. As always time is at a premium but from Friday, June 11th through Sunday, June 13th I am going to take some snatches of time here and there and try to accomplish as much as possible.

I am quite sure that my list will only grow longer as more of all the tasks I need to complete come to me.  But this is where I am starting and I if I can do half this list, I might have too sing a little song about it.

    1. I think that this list is very, very optimistic – but I figure that at least I will have it to refer back to. Hope you get your stuff done too and are able to enjoy your visit with your parents.

  1. You are farther along the process than me – I have some ideas in my head and keep sending myself emails with to-do’s in the subject line :). I hope to post a list tonight (have a few work deadlines today to complete before I can ‘play’).

    Good luck this weekend! I hope you complete more than you hope to.

    1. Writing this list has been about as far as I have gotten so far. Other thing have kept popping up. I am going to stop by and see what thing I can steal from your list. 😉

    1. I am with you on the housiesta. I think I would scare people if I listed what I needed to do around the place, and I have to find the space for all these books! Good luck tackling indexes.

  2. I really need to work on my blog too. I’m busy this weekend but I may have to have my own personal Bloggiesta sometime this summer! Good luck with all of your tasks.

  3. Your list looks like mine and if I get most of it done, I just might have to join you in your song! =) Good luck with your list!

  4. Like you I have a lot I hope to accomplish this weekend. Not sure how many items will be crossed off my list, but at least it’s a start. I hope your time is productive. On a different note, funny you mentioned your summer reading list. That has been the topic of the day with me and my Facebook friends. Perhaps I really need to sit down and think about what I plan to read this summer. Have a great weekend!

  5. I’m super excited about the updating of the THIB schedule, since I’m in incorrigible list maker/planner (at least in my head, sometimes they don’t make it to paper), and I can’t WAIT to see what books I need to start looking for!
