It’s almost Bloggiesta Time!

September 5, 2012 Bloggiesta 9


I did Bloggiesta in the Spring and it was so helpful! I got a lot done on my blog and learned a ton of things to help with blogging. There is stuff for all levels of bloggers, which is great. This year it is the weekend of September 28-30. Sadly I won’t have a ton of time to devote to Bloggiesta that weekend, but I’ll participate as much as I can.

Bloggiesta is co-hosted by Danielle at There’s a Book and Suey from It’s All About Books. Originally created nearly four years ago by Natasha of Maw Books, we want to make sure to give her a huge thank you for starting such a fantastic event! An event that bloggers everywhere look forward to twice a year.

Bloggiesta is for working on your blog. Goals range from spiffing up your side bar to cleaning/organizing your google reader (my #1 priority) to learning new tricks. You can learn more about Bloggiesta over at There’s a Book, but here are some of the topics that will be covered:

  • Scheduling Posts and Organization
  • Increasing Blog Traffic
  • Using a Variety of Applications in Conjunction with your Blogging. (ie. Evernote, Microsoft Access, etc.)
  • WordPress vs. Blogger
  • Discussion Posts…How-to
  • And many, many more

I hope you’ll join in the fun!

My To-Do List

  • Clean up my reader and organize the new blogs that I have added
  • Cross post my reviews to goodreads
  • Implement the new things I’ve been working on on my test blog
  • Fix my reviews by author page

    I may have to seriously check in with this event this year because my blog has definitely been neglected as of late. And with the busiest part of the year right around the corner I’ll need all the advice I can get!

    I NEED to do this, but sadly, it’s the same weekend as the Austin Teen Book Fest. I really wanted to participate this time, because I missed it last time, and it looks like I’m going to miss it again. But I seriously NEED this! So maybe I’ll just have to do my own Bloggiesta some weekend in the future…

    Good luck with yours! I don’t know if I’ll be around much to cheer you on, but I’ll try to!

      They’ll probably post the challenges and stuff on Thursday and I totally recommending book marking all of them. That’s what I did cause I couldn’t get to them all last time, and it worked out great because I could work on them when I had time.

      Obviously you can’t participate in the challenge, but at least you get the info.

      I hope you have a good time at the Teen Book Fest!
