Bloggiesta the Sixth

September 20, 2013

Bloggiesta was created by Natasha from Maw Books Blog and is now hosted by Suey from It’s All About Books and Danielle from There’s a Book. Here’s the details:

Bloggiesta starts today and runs through Sunday. Participate when and how you want. This is your time to improve on those little things about your blog you’ve been thinking about for months, mark off those long to-do lists and possibly even discover a few great new blogs. Whether you have days, hours or just a few minutes we hope you’ll join us!

This is a blogging party led by our fearless mascot PEDRO (Plan. Edit. Develop. Review. Organize.). The idea behind Bloggiesta is to keep Pedro happy by spending these next three days working on perfecting your blog and connecting with other bloggers doing the same thing.

You can read about my Bloggiesta escapades from previous events herehereherehereherehere, and here.

I’ve gotten really behind on writing reviews, so this bloggiesta (like the last few I’ve participated in) will be dedicated to trying desperately to catch up. Maybe I’ll also get a few other tasks done, but this is really going to have to be my focus this weekend.

    Good job off knocking those reviews off the list! I made a large to do list, but realistically my only real focus is getting back into the habit of commenting daily. I do need to catch up on a slew of reviews though! Good luck with the rest of your list!

    Looks like you’ve made progress, though! Keep it up!!!
