Good week for blogging ~ Task It Tuesday!

Posted January 17, 2017 by Michelle in Task it Tuesday / 2 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.

I did a great job during bloggiesta and was super productive. I am quite happy with what I was able to accomplish. I have a few things set up to do this week but my major thing is to get a bunch of posts done on Friday so I can spend all of Sat and Sun doing the 24in48 read-a-thon. I am still trying to decided when I want to start and how much time I want to spend reading each day.

I took the link off the bottom because I honestly don’t get anyone that wants to sign up with me but if you do post a Task It Tuesday feel free to leave the link in the comments. If you think I should add the link back…let me know I will add it back no problem. 🙂

BELOW: Don’t forget to check out the upcoming events and upcoming read-a-thons, challenges and memes. Also be sure to check out some helpful blog posts to help make you more productive.

You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, four hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six four-hour sessions with four hour breaks in between, whatever you’d like.

    • Great for your reading goals and tasks. This challenge is year long and will help you get to those books that you have always wanted to read but next had time to.
  • My TBR List – Monthly Meme
    • I host this one ~ Each month you will make a post with three books from your TBR List (these books can be already on your kindle or shelf or books you might want to purchase) and add your link on the linky that will be provided on Because Reading is Better than real life blog. Your followers and the people on the linky will help you choose which book you will read next. The following Saturday you will announce the book that won, then read the book, and on the last Saturday of the month post a review. For more details click on link above.

  1. I think it makes sense taking off the linky – it’s a lot of extra work to create those things for no one to ever link up with you. If people start being interested you could always make on linky that for like the whole month or heck, the whole year! lol!

    You’ve been so productive! Go you!!! Good luck this week 🙂

    • I feel bad no one joins but at this point since I do this every week it’s more for me. If people want to join I’ll be happy to add the link again but not until it’s requested 🙂

      I am trying to be super productive, now that Amelia is finished I can get back to some blogging productivity lol
