Finish out Jan to focus on Feb ~ Task It Tuesday!

Posted January 10, 2017 by Michelle in Task it Tuesday / 0 Comments

Welcome to Task It Tuesday! created by the Awesome The Geeky Blogger

Hosted by Michelle at Because Reading is better than real life!

What is Task It Tuesday? It is where every week I list a task or tasks that I would like to accomplish on my blog or in Real Life before next Tuesday. It can be big or small but the goal is to get something done that will make my blog/reading life/challenges run smoother, faster, or more efficient and/or get those simple or complex tasks done in my real life. I will also be sharing organizing tips and linking with posts from bloggers that have some great tips and tricks for keeping you and your blog/real life organized.


 This weekend is Bloggiesta and you know how much I love that. I plan to do a lot of posts over the weekend so I will be taking it easier during the week to get myself ready for 3 days of blogging, I plan to start bloggiesta a day early, since I am home on Fridays. So most of the week will be cleaning the house and getting ready. I am almost done with posts for Jan, I need to draft a bunch for the end of the year (need to make a list of what needs to be set up) and I am also going through some logos and redoing them because I am looking for a cleaner look when it comes to some of my logos. I almost changed my header but changed my mind. I still like it like that. Just the post logos seem rather busy and I wanted something different with the same color scheme. I also have a few new ones I want to make so I plan to start that next week.
