Bloggiesta Sign-Up and Goals

September 13, 2012

It’s time for Bloggiesta again! This will be the first time I’ve participated in Bloggiesta, although I did observe the Spring 2012 Bloggiesta, and it seemed like people were having a blast taking part!

Bloggiesta is hosted by Suey from It’s All About Books and Danielle from There’s a Book. This Bloggiesta is running from September 28-30. You can sign up here!

“Remember, the level of commitment during Bloggiesta is up to you. We’d love for you to find lots of time to devote to blogging with us during those three days, but if you have just one day that you can join us, or even just a few hours of one day, please do not hesitate to sign up.

If you decide to participate in the Fall 2012 edition you can expect:
  • to spend time that weekend (as much or as little as your schedule allows) working on your blog
  • to create a to do list to share on your blog and link up with other participants
  • to hopefully participant in several mini challenges and learn something new
  • to connect with other participants through blog hopping or twitter
  • to make new blogging friends!
  • to come away at the end of the three days with a spiffed up blog!”

    My Goals:

-Catch up on any outstanding reviews, cross-post to goodreads and add to review archive.
-Schedule all of my Top Ten Tuesday and Waiting on Wednesday posts for the remainder of 2012.
-Work out how to do that cool colour box thing that some people use around synopsis’ and see whether I like it on my posts or not.
-Think of a list of questions to ask authors in interviews.
Think of more interesting post ideas.
-Debate over setting up a blog-only twitter.
-Look into having a facebook page for my blog.
-Look into adding a Networked Blogs follower widget. (Added!)

-Add ratings graphics to all reviews. And whilst I’m at it, add a corresponding rating tag.
-Add ‘back to top’ links on my Review Archive.
-Set up an RSS feed for my blog.

Of course, I’ll also spend time commenting on other participants blogs, taking part in several mini-challenges and generally being annoying on Twitter!

    Glad you’re participating too!! Great list, there’s definitely some awesome stuff you have in there. If you change your twitter or add a Facebook page let me know, I’ll follow!
    I need to come up with new post ideas as well, maybe I’ll add that to my list too 🙂
