Bloggiesta Begins Today

Bloggiesta is a three-day blogging party devoted to working on perfecting your blog and connecting with others bloggers doing the same thing. If you aren’t already familiar with Bloggiesta, hop over to It’s All About Books and There’s a Book, our hosts for the fiesta.

I’m not going to be as ambitious as I was during the last Bloggiesta. I’ll be out most of the day on Saturday and won’t have as much time to devote to it but I do want to participate in a few of the activities.

I’m pretty happy with the look and feel of my blog so I won’t be making any artistic changes but there is a little behind the scenes housekeeping that I need to catch up on and some posts and reviews I’d like to write. I’ll also be taking part in a few mini-challenges as there is always something new to learn.

To-do List:

Back up the blog.
• Housekeeping:
Clean up email
Clean up google reader Save this for another day!
Update Links in Menus
Replace Feedburner with a new delivery system.
• Review About, Disclosure and Policies pages and update.
• Create a page for Giveaway Info and Rules.
• Participate in several Mini Challenges:
How to Use Evernote
Changing Your RSS Feed
• Attend a twitter party. Missed the Friday party, not home for the Sat & Sun parties. 😦
• Visit other blogs and offer encouragement.
Are you planning any changes this weekend?

    I am going to have to check out the RSS feed on mine, too; didn’t think of it, since I thought it was only a problem on the Blogger sites. I prefer e-mail subscriptions….

    Have a great weekend. Here’s MY BLOGGIESTA STARTING LINE POST

      For your blogs hosted at wordpress they provide a decent feed. I added feedburner because it gave me more info and stats about subscribers.

    I dont know how much I will get done with a very busy weekend ahead and a full day today but I will participate – even if I am up at midnight doing it 🙂

    curious what you are going to replace feedburner with…

      I’m going to participate in the Change Your Feed Challenge and hopefully learn the benefits of the different services available.

        I had no idea there was such a thing

    Your blog is already wonderful! But have fun with this.

      I’m not making any artistic changes. I finally got it to look the way I want and I’m not going to mess with that!

    I haven’t even thought about my email and it needs a day to itself.

    It would be so much fun to participate in this, but I’ve got too much going on this weekend. I hope that one year I will have time to join in. Good luck with your list!

    I am not planning anything major this weekend since I got a late start in participating. Best of luck with your goals.

    That looks like a doable list with some really useful items on it. Have a great time working on it all~!

    Back up the blog; very important. Good luck with the list!

    My bloggiesta.

      I know that I should back up the blog….but I have eleven sites! lol

    I’m glad the mini-challenges will remain up, since I’ll be referring back to those in the coming weeks. Didn’t get around to finishing everything I wanted, since my list is always growing, but had a fun, productive weekend. Hope you did, too!
