Bloggiesta 2012 – How’d I do?

Bloggiesta 2012……… Let’s see what kind of goals I actually managed to accomplish!

Okay, here’s the progress I made. I actually started working ahead of time because I knew the actual weekend of Bloggiesta would be busy. So here’s what I accomplished in a week’s time.

First and foremost: READ!!! I’m falling behind on my reading pace and my reviews are going to suffer from it soon. – Well, I think I halfway accomplished this goal. I spend almost all day Saturday (at least the morning/afternoon) reading and finished the second half of one book, finished a whole other book, and then started a new one. I think that works!


  • Update & link up my Goodreads reviews. – Gave up on this. I really don’t care what my Goodreads reviews say. They’re more of my initial reaction upon finishing and anyone who wants a review should really come to my blog anyway!
  • Clean up some of my blog post categories. – Done. I actually didn’t really delete many
  • Make a new and better Book Addict’s Guide button.  – Yep! I made a new button AND a new header. That’s probably why I’m so far behind on reading!
  • Pin more bookish things to my new blog-related Pinterest! – Done and done. Slowly but surely!
  • Comment more on other people’s blogs. – Sorry guys, I’ve been slacking on the comments. But now that things have slowed down at work just a bit, I’ve had some more time for it.

Actual Posts:

  • Work ahead on the Deja Vu Review (and update page on my blog) – Updated topics, worked 1 week ahead
  • Work ahead on Casting Call (and update page on my blog) – Working ahead a little bit
  • Work ahead on Top Ten Tuesday – I think I’m only a week ahead
  • Update master list of reviews – Yay, it’s updated!!!! I was really far behind… Oops.
  • Update events page – Fully updated
  • Check up on my other pages and see if they need any updating – I think I’m good

Well, overall, I’d say that’s not bad! Hooray for Bloggiesta!

    Great job! I did cross over my reviews to Goodreads, but it didn’t take that long so it’s wasn’t too bad 🙂 I love the design of your blog by the way!

      Thanks so much! 🙂 I think I’m finally satisfied with it.
      Yeah, I decided GR was just going to take too long and I’d rather have people read my reviews on my blog anyway 🙂

    You certainly got a lot accomplished as well! I like the new header and I replaced your old button with your new one on my page. I forgot to add a Pinterest badge on my blog so people can add me! I’ll probably get to it later tonight and I’ll go ahead and follow you now 🙂
