#Bloggiesta ~ UPDATE! End Post

Posted September 20, 2015 by Michelle in Bloggiesta / 27 Comments

I am doing this post instead of the Task it Tuesday this week.


I’m so excited it’s time for another Bloggiesta! This one will start next week on Thursday September 17 and run through Sunday September 20. They will have a Twitter chat each day of the event.

Bloggiesta is an event to do all things bloggy, just make a To-Do list and on September 17th start doing your tasks on your list. This is one of my favorite events it really gets me motivated and in a good blogging place. My lists this time is to get all those posts done that need to get done for next month and finding a new way to keep track of ARCs and reviews plus updating my spreadsheet and goodreads. I will put a bunch of stuff on my list but I am hoping to get to the top ones first and have them completed.

I am going to do updates each day as to what I have accomplished.
The only day I wont be updating will be on Thursday the 17th. I will be reposting
this post with a section on the bottom with my progress each days.

My To-Do List

  • Posts ~ Set up/Draft/Schedule all posts for October. Events I have planned and review posts that need to get set-up or completed.
    • Scary App Reviews
    • Reviews ~ Scary Books
    • Top Ten Halloween
    • Spooktacular Blog Hop Post
  • Spreadsheet/Calendar Book ~ I have a spreadsheet but I also want to have a planner like calendar book that has all the books on it so I can reference it when I am not on my computer
  • Goodreads ~ This needs to be updated since I have fallen behind
  • Updates
    • Challenge Page
    • COYER Page
    • About me Page
    • Review Policy
    • Author Spotlight ~ I am still working on this one
    • Author Boxes
  • Clean up

    • Bloglovin
    • Tags

  • Cross Post Reviews (Goodreads/Amazon/B&N/Etc)
  • Post reviews/app reviews on Pinterest

This list is an ongoing list that will be used for bloggiesta so I wont get all of them accomplished but as I finish them I will cross them out.

My Progress

  • Sept 18th
    • Finished up 3 review posts and ready to schedule
    • Set Up 2 review posts to pop in review when they are finished.
    • Set up 1 app review
  • Sept 19th
    • Set up email, stuck with Feedburner but it worked for what I needed for now.
  • Sept 20th
    • Fixed my Author Box (I blew up my blog with the WP Author Box Plugin I suggest to stay away from it) I used Code to do it instead.
    • Finished Drafting all the App Reviews
    • finished and scheduled the Spooktacular Hop
    • Spending the rest of the night doing ARCs, Goodreads and my Planner book.

I was very happy with my progress even with the FATAL ERROR on my blog I was still able to accomplish a lot and feeling very bloggy at the moment to continue on during the week.

  1. I too blew up my blog during the course of bloggiesta though in my case I managed to lose every single gadget and button ( including social media buttons) from BOTH of my side bars whilst changing the layout. in the end in turned into a blessing in disguise as I like my new ONE side bar much better 😛

    Well done on getting so much done 🙂

    • Oh no! That stinks, I am glad it worked out. My backup didn’t link to my blog and it’s a good thing otherwise i would have lost everything. Thankfully Ashley at Nosegraze.com was able to help me out. She has a lot of good info on stuff like that.

      Thank you! 🙂

  2. Wow, I’m glad you got that Author Box thing fixed! It’s always so scary when stuff like that happens! Great job on your progress! I’m feeling very bloggy right now, too, so I hope to get more done this week as well. Hopefully we’ll both get lots more accomplished!

    • Me too 🙂 It was so frustrating and I was in such a panic because all I kept thinking was I lost everything, I do have back up but I was just in a dither.
      Bloggiesta really gets you in that awesome bloggy mood! I love it 🙂

  3. Wish I had known about this event earlier. Curse me for being so behind on blogging events >.> This sound like the perfect event for me to try and attempt because It seems like here lately I am struggling to keep up with my calendar! *sob* I’m sure you know the feeling! Life seems to always get in the way, these days.

    Good luck on your To Do Lit it looks massive, but I know you can do it!

    • This event is seriously my favorite, she does it couple times a year. You still have time to sign up. My list is on going so it rotates each bloggiesta. You should try to stop by the twitter parties, you don’t have to sign up to join the parties and they are so informative. Maybe you can join next year 🙂
