Bloggiesta Begins

After the weekend of the 48 Hour Book Challenge Natasha mentioned on twitter that there should be a 48 hour review challenge. I agreed with her right away after spending the weekend reading I was wondering how would I ever be able to write my reviews. This is where the idea was born. Thanks to Natasha for organizing it and to her husband for designing the little mascot.

I am late in starting this which surprises me as I was the first to sign up when she posted this on her blog. You can check out Natasha’s blog here for more information about Bloggiesta.

Unfortunately I won’t get much done today as I have a whole lot of things I need to do in the house because I have company flying in from Chicago on Wednesday to stay a couple of days.

I have alot that I would love to get done this weekend on my blog such as get a bunch of reviews scheduled to post, clean up my labels and reorganize and add a few things to my blog.

Here is my to do list:

  • Write up reviews for four books that I read for the 48 hour book challenge & set to post
  • Write up reviews for thirteen other books I have read & set to post
  • Prepare posts for two author interviews I have coming up
  • Clean up labels -This is Done-
  • Clean up the side bar on the blog
  • Prepare post for a new feature I want to start on my blog
  • Answer all comments that have been made on my blog
  • Prepare Mailbox Monday post -THIS IS DONE-
  • Organize things to post during my absense next week (I have company coming in next week)
  • Organize a post for my 1st blogoversary

Good luck everyone. Enjoy but most of all have fun.

  1. I hope you have a productive day!

  2. Well, as I already caught my two little boys out the door and to the corner, I’m wondering how much I’ll get done today too! Thanks so much for your support and good luck!

  3. I’m doing this challenge too, Cindy. Good luck!

  4. You guys are so good about doing challenges. As soon as I see a challenge I start sweating – all those deadlines!!!!

    Good luck!

  5. Good luck with the bloggiesta!
    Also, thanks for writing the first comment on my blog! And now that I am set up with Twitter, I sent you my first tweet earlier today.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Good Luck! I’m juggling Bloggiesta with company coming in as well. We’ll see how it goes.

  7. Wow — that is a huge to do list. Good luck and have fun!

  8. Good luck with the Bloggiesta. I’m not officially doing it, but I am spending some time today getting caught up. Speaking of which, I have an award for you:

  9. I’m even later getting started! This is going to be fun, though. Good luck!

  10. The good news is that the amount of time you contribute to the Bloggiesta is entirely up to you. I bet you’ll get loads done tomorrow and Sunday. Once you get your housework and visitor prep done you’ll get all that blogging under way. 🙂

  11. Hi Cindy,

    My name is Louise and I am blogging from Copenhagen, Denmark 🙂 I blog in English and in Danish, and this weekend I am participating in the Bloggiesta :o)

    One of the points on my to-do list is to visit other blogs and write meaningful comments on them. And then I also saw that this was actually a mini-challenge, I had all the more reason to get out there and visit some blogs, that I haven’t visited before.

    And that is why I am here.

    I have just spent a few minutes getting a slight overview over your blog and I can see that I must put you on my blogroll, as I clearly will want to return and explore more.

    I have been blogging since 2006, although I neglected my English version of my blog throughout all of 2007. But when I returned to it last year, I can safely say that it hasn’t been the same since. I had never imagined that there was so many fabulous bloggers out there in the book-blogging blogospehre and I have really enjoyed it.

    One of the things I really like about the book blogging community is the friendly and non-controversial atmosphere.

    Anyway, I have babbled on long enough I think, and am off to another, new-to-me book blog and I can’t wait.


  12. Great list! Love that you mentioned organizing your blogoversary post – that’s something I really need to get done soon.
    Good luck and enjoy your weekend 🙂

  13. Great list! Good luck with it!

  14. Okay, I can’t say that your blog is exactly new-to-me since the 48 Hour Book Challenge things, but I did get to spend a little more time looking around and getting a sense of Your Blog. Glad that you and Natasha got folks looking at their blogs this weekend – including me.

  15. Hi Cindy,

    I discovered your blog through bloggiesta and Fizzy Thoughts’s challenge/suggestion that we visit at least 10 new (to me) blogs and say hello.

    Though you must be quite stressed getting ready for company you do have quite a good list of things to do. Hang in there!

    I just wanted to say hello and that I hadn’t seen the photo bucket before. I’ve since signed up! Thanks! I feel like I’m learning/seeing so much just visiting the other sites.
