Bloggiesta – Autumn 2012 Edition

The Autumn 2012 edition of Bloggiesta will be happening September 28th through the 30th. This is one of my favorite events and I will definitely be participating.

While I am happy with the current look and feel of my blog, there are always new things to learn and new ideas to try out. One of my year-end goals is to move to self-hosting, something I wanted to work on during this past Spring Bloggiesta, but ran out of time.

What is Bloggiesta?

Bloggiesta is a blogathon created by Natasha of Maw Books. The purpose is to spend the weekend working on your blog while getting new ideas, networking and learning from other bloggers. There are also fun mini-challenges to take part in. The level of commitment is open. Do as much or as little as you want. All types of blogs are welcome to participate.

What to Expect

If you decide to participate, here’s what 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 participate 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!

How to Participate

Bloggiesta is hosted by It’s All About Books and There’s a Book. Head over to the sign up page and add your name to Mr. Linky.

What about you? Are you going to Bloggiesta?

    I need to dedicate some time to the blog but life is so crazy right now it’s hard for me to commit to anything. I hope you get much accomplished.

    I’m doing it too. My blog needs some work on the back end.

    I enjoy participating and have done so each time since I first began. I work on a different blog each time, although last time I did skip over to some of my others to add things as I learned how to do them. I’ll be watching to see what you do!

      That reminds me that my very neglected gardening blog could use a facelift! We’ll see.

    I certainly should participate, but I need to read! Your blog is fabulous already!!

      Thanks for the compliment. I’ve reached the limits of this template so there’s not much more I can do unless I pay to modify the CSS code. Ultimately I will move to self-hosting and then I don’t have to worry about WordPress rules and limitations.

    I have wanted to participate in the past, but weekends are my busiest times – all the mom stuff I have to do with the kids – so I haven’t been able to join in.

      So far I’ve kept that weekend fairly clear but busy weekends are a problem for me too. I’m not going to try to attempt as much as I did last Bloggiesta.

    I had to participate, after the fun Bloggiesta I had the last time 😀 This will be the second time and I’m looking forward to it. Good luck with your switch to self hosting!
