Bloggiesta: Finishing Line #bloggiesta
March 24, 2013 22 Comments
Bloggiesta is organised by Suey from It’s All About Books and 1st Daughter of There’s A Book. Bloggiesta is an online event for (book) bloggers in which we are encouraged to spend the weekend 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!
Finishing Line It went really well! I worked on Bloggiesta Friday and both weekend days. My to-do list seemed awfully long before I started, but in fact, I did most of it: I wrote eight of the twelve posts I had planned and ALL of the other items on the list. See below.
I was especially pleased to sort out an alternative for Google Reader. And I have a number of posts ready to be posted… on both blogs!
It was fun to sit and work on the blog – funny how things that seem tedious are actually very rewarding once you’re doing them. I commented on other participants’ blogs and it was nice to connect up with some old and new friends.
