Bloggiesta: Update #1

BloggiestaThis Bloggiesta thing is tough work!  I was hard at work for 6 hours today from 8-2, and while I was working steadily I don’t feel all that accomplished.  It takes a long time to complete these tasks.  Maybe that is why I am so far behind.

So far :

  • Wrote my intro to Bloggiesta Post.
  • Fixed the tags and categories for my 2009 posts.
  • Did the Website Grader for Bookish Ruth’s Mini-Challenge, but still have to go and comment.  My blog got a grade of 97/100.  Sweet! Totally unexpected and they gave me some tips to improve my blog more.
  • Wrote a “My Thoughts on Books” Post and then immediately published it (The  Reincarnationist, by M.J. Rose), lol- see how much I’m behind!
  • Wrote a “My Thoughts” Post on Either You’re In or You’re In the Way, by Logan and Noah Miller (loved it!)
  • Updated plug-ins and added a few new ones.
  • Made updates to my Google reader, added a bunch of Bloggiesta participants- don’t know how helpful that was but I found a lot of great blogs!
  • Wrote a “This Just In!” Post, again, for tonight- lol.  And I have so many more to do.  Got two additional books to go to wait with the stack I already have.
  • Commented on 15 Bloggiesta posts.
  • Created a blog schedule. (Following it is another thing entirely- just being honest)
  • Wrote a list post specifically for June.
  • Fixed settings on Tweet Feeder.

Is it Sunday yet? I’m pooped.

  1. So bloggiesta seems to be a good thing- very motivating, I’m feeling like a very lazy person in my general life.

  2. You’ve done a lot so far!
    I like the idea of a blog schedule, since I’ll be away for a week in the summer. Though it’s heard to say what book I’ll be reading… Will have to ponder further. Thanks for the idea!

  3. Looks like it’s going really well. I’ve written four blog posts (two reviews, and two others), and cleaned out my Google Reader. I’ve been at a computer for most of the day though, between work and this, so I think after I leave a couple more comments I’m taking a break to watch a movie 🙂

  4. You’ve done a lot in six hours! I know what you mean about being tired. I was sooo cranky when I wrote my first post after eight hours of work yesterday. I feel better today and realize I did pretty well considering don’t know the computer stuff. Soldier on, we’ll be glad we did it in the end.

  5. Thanks for your summaries, complete with links to things like the blog review site. That helps folks like me, who are often a day late, if not always a dollar short.
