Spring Bloggiesta Finish Line

Categories: Book Reviews

 

Phew! We made it through another Bloggiesta! I managed to get a decent amount of stuff done, although I always wish I could do more. Now my goal is to keep my momentum going so I don’t fall into a rut again. I think I can do it!

Here’s what I managed to cross off my to do list:

  • Run Bloggiesta! (obviously)
  • Host my first mini challenge
  • Get current on cross-posting reviews (which happens to be my mini challenge!)
  • Learn more about SEO and start making changes to improve mine
  • Participate in as many Twitter chats as I can

The only thing I didn’t really do was work on my SEO. I did a teeny tiny bit, but I didn’t get to do what I planned. I should be able to find time in the coming weeks to work on it, though.

If you want to see how everyone did during this Bloggiesta, check out this link up.

What did you accomplish this week?? Let me know!

When you are ready for a blogging fiesta…..

Top Ten Tuesday #2: Books (I Wish) I Read in One Sitting

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is books we have read in one sitting. I read pretty slowly, so I barely ever read a book in one sitting. So here is a list of books that made me wish I could keep reading all night long. I’m sure some of you could finish them in one sitting!      Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor The Raven Boys by […]

Weekly News #10: 2/26-3/11

Comings and Goings I seriously can’t believe that it’s been two weeks since the last time I posted a Weekly News. It has been a really rough couple of weeks, so I ended up basically taking an unplanned hiatus. I honestly don’t know when this hiatus will be able to end, unfortunately. Things have been really bad at work lately and I have had to take on about three times […]
