Bloggiesta, Woo Hoo!!

Bloggiesta??  I completely forgot about it until I saw Sheila's Morning Meandering post! I have been down with a migraine for 4 days but I'm finally feeling better, just in time to participate in Bloggiesta. 
What is a Bloggiesta you ask? Well, Bloggiesta is hosted by Maw Books and it runs from Friday morning until Sunday night.  
Here is what Maw Books say about it:

Bloggiesta begins now and runs  through Sunday the 23rd (technically the wee hours of Monday morning).  You can really start whenever you want within that time but official hours are 8am to 8am (wherever you are).  The hours spent on the challenge do NOT need to be in a row. Use the entire 72  hour time frame and see what you can do with it.  It’s your call as to how much you want to put into it.  But you have to put something into it or it’s not a challenge.
When you begin the Bloggiesta challenge, sign in with Mr. Linky (at the bottom of this post) and link directly to your Bloggiesta post. That will let me and everybody else that you have officially begun and we can go share our mariachi tunes and cheer you on.
If you have just discovered this challenge, it’s not to late to sign up.  Join us anytime!  (No need to sign up on the sign up post – just sign up with the Mr. Linky on this page. Just do me a favor and tell me in the comments you just signed up so I can add you to the shared feed & Twitter list.)
How many times (if any) you choose to update is up to you, but you should keep track of the hours spent on the challenge as well as the tasks you have completed.  I’m all for making it work for how you best work.  You do not need to write a new post for each mini-challenge completed, but do give your awesome hosts some link love.
On Sunday, I will post a finish line post. In a change from last year, you do not need to link up a Bloggiesta summary post.  Instead I will have a survey that I’d love to have you fill out so I can implement your feedback better into future Bloggiesta’s.

For more information go to Maw Books to sign up and to also read about the mini challenges that are fun to participate in during Bloggiesta.

My goals:

  • Type all of the book reviews I haven't gotten to yet.
  • Rearrange sidebar.
  • Participate in the mini challenges.
  • Create book spotlights.
  • Update reviews on Library Thing, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble.
  • Prepare book tour posts.
  • Update challenges lists.

I'm sure I'll be adding to this as I go along. I have my work cut out for me and its time to get started. Hope you all have a fun Bloggiesta!!

I had forgotten about it, too, Natalie...I knew it was this weekend, but thought it started tomorrow!

But I put something together and I've worked on it a bit today.

Have fun! Your list looks good.
