This is chance to do all those blogging things you have been putting off. Setting time aside to work from the start of the day to the end of the day on nothing but organizing, setting up posts or whatever you want to get done. This is one of my favorite motivators and I am so excited to be doing it again.
I will be doing Jan 17th and 18th since I don’t have off on Monday and will try to finish off Bloggiesta after work on Monday but I will have to see how it goes. I recently redesigned my blog and have been pretty happy with how it looks so I think most of my goals this time will be organizing off the blog and if I have time I will do a few things on the blog or save it for the next Bloggiesta.
I have decided this year to have my blog go through a few changes but of course I always do this without thinking ahead and now am totally unorganized. I have a few pages that need to be fixed on my blog but I am going to do the outside stuff first. So here is my list of goals I would like to get started during this Mini Bloggiesta
By the way all updates will be done on this post, you can find the link to it in the challenges tab under my header.
- Book Spreadsheet ~ So I made a pretty spreadsheet for my books so I can catalog them all with where I got them and when they will be released. I would like to actually fill in the books now 🙂 Got a lot of my books in the spreadsheet and will finish more today very excited about the layout of the spreadsheet, if anyone is interested in it let me know I will be happy to email it to you. I have an excel file and a Numbers file.
- Organize Goodreads ~ I haven’t been using it to my best ability and I think I could find it more helpful if I took sometime to organize and go through all the books and shelves I have. I did a bunch of new shelves and deleted about 195 books off my TBR pile that was added when I first opened goodreads, I am now making it for just books I own and books I really want to read, I would rather have a few books I will read then a ton of books that I will most likely never read.
- Organize Posts ~ This one is hard to explain since I want to come put with posts and set a schedule for them since I tend to say I want to do a post and never do it. So this is setting posts in my calendar (planner and Google Cal) This can be anything from Review posts to App Reviews posts to maybe that random post I have always wanted to write. I just realized I did some of this already. I wrote down a LOT of ideas and will now start to schedule stuff in my Calendars. I have a lot of ideas floating in my head while I was organizing #1 and #2 so when they popped in my head I wrote them down 🙂
- Fix those pages ~ I have a few pages that need updating and some changes. About me, Review Policy and set up my Design Page for Limabean Designs with a contact form so people can start contacting me if they are interested in having a design done by me 🙂 going to have to put this off till next weekend since I am not sure I will be able to get to it before Bloggiesta is over but I will get to it 🙂
I think for now that is it. If I think of anything else I will add to this but for the two days that I will working this might be all I can really do.
Wrap Up! 1/19/15
This was a VERY productive Bloggiesta and I am very happy with my progress and has really made me more motivated. I didn’t complete every thing but I made a huge step in the right direction and have a lot accomplished to keep me rolling for some time. I am so happy I figured out the spreadsheet and organized Goodreads! I also made so many notes and ideas, now I just need to write them and get them posted. I set up all my review posts and just need to schedule them. I have a bunch of stuff started and plan to continue since I am totally on a roll 🙂 This was a great Bloggiesta and I can not wait for the next one! See you in March!!!
Are you joining Bloggiesta this time? What do you plan to do?
Thanks for stopping by
Have a great day!
