Task it TuesdayWelcome 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.


Happy New Year!

New Year and New Tasks, throwing out all those tasks from two weeks ago and starting fresh.

HOLY PRODUCTIVE GIRL! Sunday and Monday I was like a working machine, it was the best feeling ever to finally have ideas and guess what? I AM AHEAD! but one of my Bookish Resolution’s goals is to stay two weeks ahead and that is exactly what I am planning to do. I still have to fill up at least 3 days for the next two weeks and I want to do another two weeks to get most of January complete. I am excited to share my ideas and also get those posts done!

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.
