Hola, Bloggiesta-ers! I’m SUPER excited because it is time for another Bloggiesta! And it is a full week-long event this time! In case you haven’t seen me talking about it on Twitter, you should know that the Bloggiesta is my all-time FAVORITE blogging event. It is very special to me because it is how I met one of my bestest blogging buddies, Emily of Emily Reads Everything.

The whole point of the Bloggiesta is to get ahead on all that blogging stuff we tend to avoid – scheduling pre-written posts, organizing email, cross-posting reviews, and anything else that you tend to procrastinate. And while you are getting all of this work done, you can use the Bloggiesta to connect with other amazing bloggers and exchange tips and tricks to help you and your blog.

A wonderful group of bloggers has come together to create challenges and Twitter chats focusing on all different aspects of blogging. Head over to bloggiesta.com to find more information and check out a challenge that fits what you are looking to accomplish with this event.

I have just a couple of things that I really want to get done during this Bloggiesta. Life has been crazy lately, and I have fallen behind on some important, yet daunting, tasks. So for this Bloggiesta, my to-do list is pretty short:

  • Organize my email
  • Cross-post all reviews to NetGalley, Edelweiss, Amazon, and Goodreads
  • Comment on other blogs and reply to comments on my own
  • Host a Twitter chat and participate in as many as I can

I’m really excited because this time around I am helping out with the Bloggiesta Twitter chats! Check out the chat schedule so you can join us! And take a look at all of the challenges that are happening this week! You should try a few! I promise you won’t regret it!

Sign up to join the Bloggiesta here! I really hope you join us! I can’t wait to meet you and offer a little encouragement as we all work on our blogs!

Here we go…….

Sunday Street Team: Beyond the Red by Ava Jae | Review

Every time I looked at the synopsis, I read the first three words, “Alien queen Kora,” and then I stopped reading. That was really all I needed to read to know that this […]
