Spring 2015 Bloggiesta ~ Sign Up & Progress

Posted by Elle  |  at   9:48 PM 5 comments

I just learned about this wonderful event today,
so I'm a tad bit late in posting, but I wanted to participate!

What is Bloggiesta?
"Bloggiesta is a blogging marathon (sometimes over a weekend, sometimes four days and this time one week!) where we as bloggers gather together to help each other work on all sorts of blogging tasks, stuff that we often put off and avoid. Or stuff that we’re scared of trying. Or stuff that we haven’t had time for. But during Bloggiesta all that stuff suddenly becomes fun! There are others doing the same thing ! So, it becomes a party! 
Wait, no. It’s a FIESTA!"  (More info. here.)

I've already missed today's Twitter chat but I'm hopeful that I'll be able to attend tomorrows!

Here's My To Do List:
  • Schedule posts instead of writing on the fly and then posting.
  • Create a page on my blog categorized by authors, the title of the books I've read and links to the reviews of done on my blog for those books.
  • Find more places to get my book reviews read at
  • Network with other bloggers.
  • Learn to use my time more wisely.
  • Schedule reading time daily so I can get through books faster.
  • Comment on other Bloggiesta participants blogs
  • Fix large blank space @ bottom of blog
  • Fix tab that wasn't linking up to blog tags
  • Monetize?
  • Disclosure Statement?
  • Create Review Policy
  • Featuring past posts ~ How to go about doing this?
  • How to grow my readership?
  • Create a book rating system with my own graphics (Ratings Scale)
  • Figure out 'small' things I can do to make things easier on myself.
  • Plan 'focus' days (network day, blog education day, post writing day, sharing content day, etc.)
As I read through other bloggers to-do lists, 
my list may become longer!

Looking forward to meeting other book bloggers!
Let's get this Fiesta Started!!!!

  1. Wonderful list! you should check the past mini challenge list to see if there is anything helpful when it comes to monetizing...there might be one :) Happy Bloggiesta, good luck!

  2. My husband wants me to monetize my blog, but I just don't know. I don't want blogging to turn into a job. Good luck with your goals!

  3. Hello! I used to watch Glee in the very beginning and loved the show! Then it got way over sexualized and quit watching. What a tragedy about the actor Corey :(

  4. This is a great list with LOTS to do! Good luck in accomplishing your goals this week!

  5. Hope you're having fun with Bloggiesta! There's a couple of mini-challenges that might help you with your schedule. Could the blank space at the bottom of your blog have something to do with your sidebars starting below your main post? I don't think I've ever seen that before, so maybe your main section is too large, so the sidebar doesn't fit? Or is it supposed to do that? Not a blog designer, so not sure. Good luck with the rest of your goals, and hope to see you on Sunday for the final Twitter chat!
