Bloggiesta Ole!

Posted by Sherry on 1/8/2010 in Community, Projects |

It’s the first day of Bloggiesta, and our mascot is PEDRO:

Plan. Edit. Develop. Review. Organize.

For my Bloggiesta tasks, I’d like to:

1. Write author birthday posts for January, February, and March, and set them to publish on the appropriate days.
2. Since I plan to take a Lenten break from blogging again this year, I’d like to grab some of the best of the posts in my archives and have them ready to post during Lent while I’m away.

3. I’d really like to check my blog archives for dead links.

4. Develop relationships by participating in Mother Reader’s Comment Challenge.
5. Finish writing a post directed to new bloggers in answer to a question mysister sent me last week. My baby sister is going to birth a brand new book blog, and she’s asking me for advice!

6. Finish my reviews and follow-up posts left over from my Cybils judging for 2009. I still have books to review and some thoughts on the general direction and quality of the middle grade fiction books I read for the Cybils.
7. Update reviews to Library Things Early Reviewers so that I can get back on their good list.

8. Work on adding links to all the reviews posted at the Saturday Review to the index pages. I can’t imagine finding enough time to do all of these, but I’d like to at least work on it.

I may come up with some other projects over the course of the weekend, may start some of these and not finish, may only get one or two projects done. That’s O.K. The main idea is have fun working on my blog along with others who are doing the same.

Bloggiesta is sponsored by Natasha at Maw Books. Thanks, Natasha.


  • Please finish your post of advice for new bloggers! I just started blogging and I would love to have some advice from you. I enjoy reading this blog.

  • I’d love to hear your post for advice for new bloggers as well! I also have a ton of Cybils reviews to write as well. Curious as to your thoughts about the MG’s that you read. I’ll be looking for that upcoming post.

  • Have fun – looks like you have a plan! I like the idea of bringing back some of the best posts when you are away from being on line.

  • Monica says:

    Great list. Good luck!

  • This all sounds good, Sherry. I TRY to stay off the computer on the weekends, or I would be tempted to join in. . .

  • You have an impressive list. I have been looking around getting ideas. This is going to be a work in progress for quite some time. Today I start with just one or two things. Good luck to you.

  • One of my favorite things about finding new book bloggers is enjoying their blog titles and subtitles! Love your subtitle 🙂 Good luck with your bloggiesta fun!
