Bloggiesta Summer Edition 2010 Finish Line

Well it turned out to be a nice weekend so I have to admit not much got done in my bloggiesta this time round because today we made it a point to do some planting of flowers and vegetables in the garden. Yea I know we were late this year.

Yesterday we were driving around trying to price some dirt and flowers/vegetables at various places around us and ended up picking up a new Wii game for Michael with a new remote. Then in the afternoon I went to the book signing for Sheila Kindellan-Sheehan.

Anyways I figured I would post what I have done so far and I think the rest I will work at over the summer. I know what I have to do and it will eventually get done.

So here is the list of things I wanted to accomplish:

Prepare a few posts for rainy days. **Completed** I actually have a bunch of reviews banked for rainy days and the reviews are of books that I bought/borrowed.
Write up a few reviews that I need to post.
Clean up my tags/labels. **Completed**
Finish my About Me page and Review Policy page. **Completed**
Add links to my reviews page.
Clean up emails and reply back to ones I need to. **Completed** Can I say that I have cleaned up my emails and brought some order to them? I think I have replied to them all and organized the emails I need to keep.
Clean up blog roll. I need to add some.
Clean up the over all look of the blog.
Update my Books Upon A Wee One’s Shelf.
Add links to my Challenge Page.
Organize for my second bloggiversary happening in August. **Completed**I managed to put some ideas done on paper.
Work on a new feature that will be coming to the blog very soon. **Completed** There is still one little thing I need to do and I might tie a contest into this one.

Okay the list isn’t that bad I think its a few major things I need to work on but hey I have all summer to do it.

Hours completed roughly in bloggiesta: 20 hours

I have to send a huge THANK YOU to Natasha at Maw Books for hosting Bloggiesta. It was alot of fun and its to bad that I didn’t get to comment more on other blogs but hey there is always January 2011.

Thanks everyone who left comments and I will be visiting your blogs this week.

  3. All in all, I’d say it was a great weekend!

  4. All in all, I’d say it was a good weekend.

  5. I’m late in my gardening as well! I planted a couple of tomato plants and then that was it! I’m glad you had fun with the Bloggiest, and 20 hours is great!

  6. Melissa- It was a productive weekend. I wish I could have done more with bloggiesta but I think 20 hours over 3 days is pretty good.

    Kathy yea it was a good weekend. I have two busy upcoming weekends so it was nice to get things done.

    Shelley-phew it feels good to know I am not the only one behind. We put in a bigger vegetable garden this year so it will be nice to see what grows.

  7. Glad you had such a positive experience with Bloggiesta. I was able to get a lot accomplished as well, but found myself, like you, distracted by pesky things…like having to work. šŸ™‚ I’ll just have to continue to work on my to-do list! Have a great week!
