Bloggiesta 2012

I know I’m a little late hopping on the bandwagon for this one, but I finally decided to join in, instead of lurking in the shadows as I did last year. This year the Bloggiesta is hosted by There’s a Book and It’s All About Books. Bloggiesta here we come!

My (very ambitious) to-do list:
1. Make a new favicon and grab button – I had them before my blog redesign, and I need to make new ones to match.
2. Update my Review linky’s – I’ve been really lax about this recently.
3. Make sure all my reviews are in GoodReads.
4. Research putting a drop down list in the nav-bar (is that what it’s really called? Or am I making that up?) I did it! With some minimal punting and major heart attack moments. I found the tutorial here if anyone else has this on their list.
5. Join at least one Blog Directory.
6. Link the blog to my bookish pinboard on Pinterest.
7. Catch up on mini-reviews – I’m never going to be able to review everything I’ve read, but 1-2 sentences is easy enough!
8. Turn my “Blogs I follow” widget into a blog roll. Edit: Instead of a blog roll, I’m going to put them into the “Links” on my new drop down lists.
9. Find and follow people on GoodReads.
10. Set up RSS for my collab blog?
11. Decide if it’s worth signing up for a Tumblr account (and if so, DO IT!)
12. Join Klout?
13. Participate in at least one mini-challenge.
14. Clean up widgets in my sidebars.

Realistically I will probably only have time to do half of this list, if that, but I’m still excited to be spending that much time on my blog! See you next weekend =)

    Awesome list! Let me know what you decide about Tumblr because I can't decide either. So far, I just don't get it! Anyway, so glad you'll be joining in the bloggiesta fun!

    Very good list! I like the favicon thing…I did it on Word Press, but never could get it to work on Blogger. (I only have two sites there, so I keep pushing it to the back burner…lol).

    Enjoy!

    I just updated my GR reviews. I'm always slacking in that! AH! But, now I'm up to date. I'm pretty sure it's called a drop down menu! I think….
    I love a clean sidebar!

    ps. I played the flute all up through high school, then I got a music scholarship for university! We've something in common!

    I know I got it to work at one point! I think from a bloggiesta post even, though I wasn't officially participating that year. I'm determined, though, to make it work again! =)

  5. Anne says:

    Oooh yay! Another flute-y blogger =) I don't think I've met one yet. I'm always slacking on my GR reviews too… SHAME ON US! lol, but this is a great excuse to fix that.

    I am loving the drop down tabs. Very easy to use! Plus I am loving the idea of doing mini reviews. I will check back to see what yours look like. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

    Another flutist here! I still play in fact and love it. :o)

    Your list is fantastic! I've gone with a Tumblr blog in addition to my normal, but don't use it often. I'm still not sold. If you can change my mind I'm totally open to it! ;o)

    Good luck and thanks for joining in Bloggiesta!

    MORE FLUTISTS! Flutists of the blogosphere unite! We should so make some kind of list that we can all find each other from somehow =)

  9. Anne says:

    Thanks! I'm not sure I'll get any of the mini reviews posted this weekend – probably I will draft them and schedule them for posting later. We'll see =)
