Fall Bloggiesta September Update! #bloggiesta

Posted September 17, 2014 by Michelle in Bloggiesta / 13 Comments


The event starts on September 18th and ends September 21st. Wanna Sign up? You can HERE

I have been looking forward to Bloggiesta since the last time I participated. I have once again fallen way behind in my organizing and setting up post. The Summer Lazies had made me a lot lazier then I would have liked and I am having a hard time getting out of it. So I am hoping this will kick my butt and get me some motivation 🙂


Go Through all my review/author spotlight emails sort out and email back

• Set-Up Posts

A. Author Spotlights
B. Books I will be reviewing that needs to be set-up so I can pop the review in when I am done with the book
C. 2 New Features to set up and make templates for them
D. Set Up Ho Ho Ho Read a thon Post
E. Set up at least 4 Top Ten and Life of a Blogger Posts

• Write and Set up some Posts for Halloween/October and write 2 Guest Posts for blogger friends.

• Write 1 reviews that need to be posted this coming week (realized I only had one to write and it was half done)

Make a list of books I want/need to read in Oct, start/set up for my Monthly Rewind Post for Sept

• A Month of Giving Thanks Post Start setting them up and/or make a template for them to set up easily

• Organize the collection and books on my Kindle (this is done to a point but still needs work)

• Update my COYER Challenge Page 

• Fix my About me page and Set Up my Limabean Design page

I am sure I am forgetting something so if I remember anything I will add it as I go 🙂

This time around I am focusing on getting posts set up and written. I want to do more original content and I think this will get me off to a good start. I wont be able to do much on Saturday since I have a very busy day and will barely be home but I plan to get as much done as I can all the other days especially on Friday and Sunday 🙂

I will be updating here about my progress
and then on Sunday stop by my Week in READ-view to see how I did 🙂

Are you joining the Bloggiesta? If so what do you plan to do

  1. You’ve got a great list! And got so many of those goals crossed off! I love your goal of getting review posts set up so that you can just write the review really quick when you finish the book! I’m definitely going to have to try that, maybe make it a goal for the next Bloggiesta! Great job!

  2. It’s nice to know that I am not the only one that creates post for books that I am reviewing so when I am done all I have to do is pop the review in..lol. 🙂

    Lot of great goal..maybe next time I will join in on Bloggiesta! 🙂

    • I think even just a few things I would be happy, I am feeling rather accomplished with what I did so far! Slow is good, I like going at a slow pace rather than quick. I always make mistakes going to fast 🙂

    • Thank you 🙂 it’s hard to come up with original stuff and I get nervous people will think I don’t know what I am talking about and most of the time I don’t lol

    • Thank you! I do hope I can finish it all.
      The Author Spotlights I have is easy to schedule far in advance since most of the work is done by the authors and I just have to piece them together. The reviews I like to set the post up so I can pop in the review when I write it.

  3. That’s quite some to-do list! I’m writing mine now – but I’ve decided (as of last night) that Bloggiesta is going to be the start of a blog vacation for me. As in, with the exception two posts I have scheduled on Thursday and Friday this week, nothing more from me until next Thursday so I can get caught up and ahead. I’m so tired of being behind!

    Good luck with your goals 🙂
