Bloggiesta Intro


It's that time of year again! Viva la Bloggiesta!

At first I thought I didn't really have that much to catch up on and then I got thinking and it turns out there is always more to do with my blogs. So, without further adieu, here's my list...
  1. Labels. Update them, though I am not too bad on this one
  2. Schedule. Figure out my reading schedule through the end of the school year. I know, this sounds anal, but it helps me to see what I need to read for challenges and I do move things around if I'm not in the mood for a specific book when its turn comes up
  3. Reviews. Post 2011 reviews to challenge sites
  4. Connections. Add a "connect with me" to include fb, twitter, etc in one small box (copy Amanda)
  5. Challenges. Add how many books I've read for each challenge box (copy Amanda)
  6. Netgalley. Go through Netgalley and request books
  7. Goodreads. Update Goodreads account. Time to be honest. I haven't done this in almost a year
  8. Copyright. Figure out how to copyright my blogs (can someone help me with this one?)
  9. Apture. Look at the updated version of Apture and see if I want to incorporate it

I think I'll look into netgalley next year, or at least after I've gotten my TBR down to a reasonable level!

Sounds like you are all ready for Bloggiesta. I haven't made my "to do list" yet, but will probably sit down today and do it.

Have fun!

Amanda--I am hoping to control myself with Netgalley since my TBR shelves are bursting. That's why I joined the Reading from my Shelves challenge this year!

Suzanne--I just made my list after seeing that someone else had done it! Making the list helped me mentally get ready for the weekend

That's a neat list of things to do. Good luck and see you during #bloggiesta! :)

I need to see what I will be doing with Bloggiesta this weekend. There are a few areas I would like to tackle.

Esme--I just hope I have time to tackle it all!

Good luck! Your list looks very reasonable, and you're right - there's always something or the other to do with your blog. :)

As for copyright, check out Creative Commons. That's where I got my blog copyrighted. You'll just have to include your details, and they'll give you a few code snippets to add to your blog, depending on the type of copyright option you choose. (At least, that's what I remember, I am yet to do it for this year.) Shoot me an email, if you get stuck or need help.
